Modified Y62 Patrol. Modified #62

Another Modified Y62 Patrol, this one owned by a YouTuber (Dash Offroad). David has spent a lot of time researching and modifying his Y62, some parts of the vehicle has changed more than once trying to find the right bit of gear.

David Hautop’s top 3 trips in the Y62 Nissan Patrol:

  1. Bendleby Ranges
  2. Carpenter Rocks to Beachport
  3. Narcunda South


Unstoppable moment in the Modified Y62 Patrol:

Going up Hay hill in at Geranium with 8 people in the car when no other car could get up it. Haha!

 

Most scary situation in the Y62 Nissan Patrol:

Hmm, let me see? Was it bogged on the beach at Beachport when the tide was coming in lapping my wheels as I was digging the sand out? Or was it at Loveday in “Hells hole” when I had a wheel in the air and embankment on either side wedging the sliders in? Or could have been at Cobar state forest playing see saw on a bolder? Iv’e nearly fell off a couple of sand dunes….. the list goes on

Things to lookout for with this model Y62 Nissan Patrol:

Going over GVM and catalytic converter failure at around 100,000km. But otherwise, she’s bullet proof


Top 3 tips with the Y62 Nissan Patrol:

1.      Don’t believe that Nissan trans oil lasts a lifetime

 

2.     Fill it with Premium ULP, gotta feed those horses, and they will reward you with smiles

 

3.     For any sand dune, 3rd gear low and go go go!
