thanks everybody! yes, so far I am very happy with it. After couple of weeks I will post a new thread and try to compare it with previous vehicles I had.

a Christmas present that couldn't wait until December to be unwrapped ;)

tires are 235/80 16 109S Bridgestone Dueler H/T 689; I have no clue why Nissan just equips the Patrol with the everywhere available 235/85 16 tires?! anyway... if necessary I will change them to nice 235/85 16 A/Ts.

Congratulations! Very nice looking Patrol... Now we need pictures of it climbing over dunes and through mud pits.
The outdoors life for me, thanks.
