    I lift mine onto the door mounted spare then climb onto the roof and lift it up from there and just reverse the proses to get it down. I do the same with my tent.

    Hopefully I'll be bolting my hoist onto my roof rack this weekend.
    Its only designed to lift 50kg max ,and as such has a weak spot in it
    if you exceed, Been working on and off for years on this. My hoist weighs in 13kg
    and will lighter on later ones.

    Put tyre carcus on roof pack it with stuff you use infrequently ( spares) and take tyre pliers, tube etc, don't just take a tube as often the tyre is destroyed
    This is a good example of dangerous tyre

    Yep I do the same, spare parts, hoses, tyre pliers, exhaust jack, filters, special tools I may only need in an emergency all go within the carcass and I have a roof bag that fits a 35" tyre perfectly. On the Simpson crossing I had all that and a pair of rear trailing arms in the bag. Worked great.

    I also use the spare to help lift it up there.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
