Hi Dave that diff its not the same as the 4.5..the 4.5 has a flatter surface at the bottom . I think its to give more ground clearance :think: :think: :think:

Nissan probably eventually did what a lot of Aussie guys do with the H260. They cut the bottom of the pumpkin and weld a piece of flat bar across it. That way you can evidently score about 1,5" ground clearance as the pumpkin is way bigger than it needs to be to clear all the internals. I have not had it open myself, or will even know where to start with that type of mod, so can't verify that it's possible with this one.

I'm just repeating what I have read on overseas forums.
