    There is a spacer you need to get mate quite easy to find. also keep an eye on the rear door with bigger spare they flex and over time crack but its a relatively simple fix for an engineer or panel beater. Ls3 patrol sounds amazing!!

    Thanks for your reply,really can not see any positives for putting a better diesel in a patrol.The new crate ls3 has 425 hp and cost 11,ooo dollars and parts are cheap,no turbo,no egr,no dpf,no expensive fuel pumps etc.Can you put a smaller tyre on one axle if you get a flat[eg,265/70/17] when other tyres are 285/70/17 without damaging anything.Patrol does not have lsd but has difflock.,thanks a lot for replys.

    If you want to go all large on your Nissan Patrol, then these Dick Cepek tires might be right up your alley. Not only are they high-quality, but they're very affordable as well.
