Sam's’s modification tips:

·         Do It Yourself! Then you know how to fix it if things go wrong.


Things to lookout for with this model Nissan Patrol:

If you are going to LS convert a Patrol, start with a 3L as the engine mounts will bolt in an oppose to re-welding to the chassis.

 

Top 3 tips with the 2008 Nissan Patrol:

      Try and keep the weight as forward as possible over the rear axle when designing what goes in the back.

  If you are trying to decide what locker to get, start with the front locker as the rear in a Patrol is LSD (limited slip diff) and very capable off road.

  Auto LS conversion, use the Holden auto. Manual LS conversion, use the Nissan manual.
