Nissan GU Patrol Ute, Modified.

Nissan GU Patrol Ute with a V8 conversion (L98) from a Holden Commodore SS.

The 6.0l conversion was installed by Daniel (the owner) who is not an actual mechanic but knows more than enough to take on a job like that.

This Nissan GU Patrol might look like a toy with the massive 37’ tyres (which it kind of is) but it's also setup for touring and long expeditions with plenty very useful mods to the rear of the tray/canopy and the rest of the vehicle.



During the filming and photo shoot we saw what this Nissan GU Patrol was capable of and it made most tough and rugged sections of the powerline track look easy and that sound of the 6.0l engine is music to the ears.

Top 3 tips with the GU Patrol:

1.       

Rock sliders, I can’t explain to you the punishment they have taken and are still in a straight condition, the scars on them speak for themselves.

2.   

Engine, if you are looking at doing a conversion to an ls, it is cheap and the results are very worth it, I did it myself and I’m not a mechanic.

3.       

Lockers, it was originally twin locked but the rear locker broke. I recommend having at least 1 x locker in your vehicle it will save you money in the long run by not having to jump over obstacles.

MY MATES

All the boys for helping me with the build

 

KILLA KUSTOM KABLES

The wiring harness is what I dreaded the most but it was the easiest part of the conversion, plug in wired fans and fuel pump and she was alive.
