Some people call it Gear Roll-Over, but its actually resonance. There ...

Re: Body Lift

There's absolutely no benefit and no need to body lift a GU / Y61 - wheel arches big enough for 35's even with 1- 2" lift most will have zero scrub. A GQ / Y60 could perhaps benefit from body lift but would be far more sense to simply 2" lift it, can run 35's off that alone. Body lifts make zero sen...

Re: Patrol built locally Y61

Guys,.. get real. They have never been built in SA. Not saying they all built in Japan, but there is no way the patrol is built in SA. If it was, why would it take 21 working day or more to get the most common parts. Nissan barely advertise the patrol, never-mind build the thing They know nothing ab...

Re: GQ on 35"s
