Patrol Pick-up load box

Post by 4thelawz » 09 Aug 2014 11:34

It is interesting to note that in SA you guys get the Patrol Pick-up with a load box (bak). Here in Aus it only comes as a cab/chassis or with a tray. Do you get a canopy for the Patrol Pick-up over there? Out of interest, how much will a load box (secondhand) and canopy be if it is available? I can see a good opportunity if it was available as an aftermarket accessory here.

Funny?
I always thought that having a load box is like a national sport in Australia?
Nissan cannot be that stupid not to have it for the pickup over there?

Nissan SA are really stupid...

Hoe verskil die nuwe patrol pick up se bak van die van die safari pick up?

Ek kon nou die dag n patrol loadbox kry vir R3500, basies splinternuut. Wonder of hulle interchangeable is?

New from Nissan they are very very expensive.

Best is to get all the ones from Eskom/Telkom as soon as they get taken off. They very cheap and all new.

As for Nissan SA, i wish we had the tray-back here, i'm keen to get rid of my Tub and swap for a tray. Also, if Nissan SA had brought the Coil Cab bakkie they would have sold very well, and by far been the most versatile and capable bakkie on the market. A coil Cab Patrol would crap all over its competition.

I reckon a coil-cab double-cab could possibly be the best base vehicle for overlanding ever conceived, but that's probably just me...

As to the 2nd part of your question Jan: I'm not sure whether there are any 'Off-the-shelf' canopies available, maybe the gents with pick-ups can confirm?

Russ built his own My aluminium canopy build and I guess most of the local custom builders would also be able to.
