Re: Patrol Gazelle X

In Middle East, Nissan is still selling Y61 along with Y62. Y62 comes with two engine variants V6 and V8 petrol. V6 is for better consumption I guess.

New Patrols launched in Middle East and they look great. They come standard with 4 inch lift, King shock shock, front and rear replacement bumpers, etc.. https://en.nissan-dubai.com/vehicles/new/patrol-safari/gazelle-x.html Here’s an YouTube video of their new range. https://youtu.be/uFfXLsg1CMA

Re: Trailer wanted

That’s a nice looking trailer Jules. Purchased a Venter off-roader this week.

I will post some pics once I get the delivery.

Re: Trailer wanted

Whatever tickles ones fancy I guess. I prefer Metalian against any other trailer but the initial cost of ownership is too high for me. Between this and Venter bushbaby in my mind BB’s are value for money for my kind of usage. No pun intended to Jurgens owners. My intention was not to say Jurgens are...

Re: 2H to 4H While driving...Is it really possible?

Saw the video again. If hubs are locked then we could shift to 4H at upto 80km/h, and 40 km/h when on auto.
But that’s on manual gearbox.

Re: 2H to 4H While driving...Is it really possible?

Ian, I’ve also noticed this in my recent trip. Tried shifting to 4H while driving when the hubs are on auto and I could hear a noise..so didn’t take any chances.

It’s funny the manual also didn’t mention anything about locking the hub.

Re: Trailer wanted

I read somewhere in this forum that they had problems with the Jurgens if pushed hard. Besides a sales person from Lynwood trailer shops who happens to be a Jurgens dealer also suggested a Venter bushbaby as Jurgens are expensive to maintain. Metalians, I agree are quite tough. Got a quote from Hein...

Re: 2H to 4H While driving...Is it really possible?

Yes I’ve seen that video when I was doing my research before I purchased my first Patrol. He didn’t mention anything about locking the hub if you want to switch to 4H while doing 80km/h. May be it’s an assumption that hubs must be locked!

Re: 2H to 4H While driving...Is it really possible?

I also found a similar discussion on the forum today. Since I use my vehicles mostly on tar. I'd rather leave it on auto and stop the vehicle and set to 4H when needed. Would have been nice if I could do it on the fly. But I understand the mechanism now. Thanks As I said, lock the hubs when you are...
