    my first 4x4

    Well gday folks...

    Just picked myself up my first 4x4 after my last car was written off

    Long story short I've gone from 2004 ford territory to this rig and so far i'm happy as a pig in poo with it!

    I usually go away every year as often possible to places such as Cobram, Rocklands reservoir and Lake Tooliorook etc with my dad and his mates who have been doing this sort of stuff for as long as i can remember and now I decided its about time I get my first 4x4 and so here I am...

    Details are :
    2004 Nissan patrol st gu s3
    3lt intercooled turbo diesel
    243xxxkms
    5 speed manual
    dual batteries
    touchscreen head unit with reverse camera/Bluetooth/gps/dvd player etc...
    side steps
    bull bar
    7 seats
    tinted windows

    Keen to do stuff to it as soon as I finish paying off what's left of my loan but so far I have added a 12" stedi light bar

    Pictures to follow asap...

    Thanks for having me aboard and a big cheers from me and mine to you and yours...

    Nice Patrol mate. FYI. Dont ever use that loop on the back bumper step for any sort of recovery. Unbolt it and look at the other side of it and you will see why. Just saying as I see a Bow shackle on it.

    Top rig mate! I remember how exciting the first 4by feeling is!

    Have a read here please mate. We were all new to 4x4ing at some stage and we've all learnt lessons along the way.

    Very important info for you to know.
