    GQ LWB Roller or GU LWB roller with 3.0L manual gearbox and transfer case

    Well, had a misadventure with the beast on its first weekend out and it turned turtle on a track. The vehicle has been written off and just waiting to hear if the determination is repairable w/o or Stat write off.
    Easiest thing is to do a direct like for like replacement of the body, but considering an upgrade to a GU platform.
    I will be trying to transfer as much as is possible into the GQ, but limited with the GU.
    The engine is not important in either donor vehicles as it will be coming out.
    1) I want a straight. rust free vehicle. If a GU, a steel winch bar by preference. If a GQ, dont need anything.
    2) I am happy with mods if they have been done correctly and will be able to pass engineering when the vehicle gets back up and running.
    3)I would prefer a non smokers vehicle.
    4) I want a manual gearbox in good functional condition if its a GU - I dont need a gearbox or running gear if I settle on a GQ. Must be a 3.0L gearbox as this will fit the clutch I am running
    5) Colour not important.
    6) If I am lucky and its not a stat write off, then I will just be looking for a body from a GQ. The only panel that isnt bent is the bonnet, so wont need one of those, which is good because the bonnet scoop was a custom and not in manufacture anymore.

    Let me know what you know of please. Will consider transfer from SA/Vic/Lower NSW.

    I won't be going into the details of the excursion, so please don't ask - still too raw. Nothing stupid or stupid driving took place either, just an accident.

    Thanks

    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.
