    Nice one Dazz, I wonder if anyone's cut on the fold line by accident before

    You could weld a new tab on and I know guys that prefer that option but seems like more work to me although they get a sharp fold that way but me and welding panel steel have good and bad days.

    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.

    Been looking over this thread for a while and just done my front guard chop this weekend. Pretty happy with how it came out, I used the same methods Darren has used in this post.








    It is also worth noting that to fit 35s you don't really need to touch the rear guards but for the sake of 20 mins you can trim about 30mm of plastic with a knife of the front edge of the rear guards. Hard to see what I mean but you can see where you would trim in this pic.

    Nice one looks neat as. Are you going to trim back of gear guards or just leave it?

    I wasn't going to. I spoke to Darren and he said he did not need to with 35s. There's not much meat there to get more out of it. What do you reckon?

    Probably don't need to but does make it look a bit more matched to 35s. Definatly scrubs without quarter chop. What control arms you got, if you go aftermarket can get the diff back a bit further with slightly longer ones more to the middle as lift moves it forward. .

    Yeah I've got standard length arms so the diff sits a little bit further forward than standard.

    I reckon worth doing while your at it, kinda matches the front bit of rears. .













    Looks really high with no weight in the cab but settles down pretty nice, think they're 10mm longer arms too.
