The rims should be the 16 inch 6jj to take that size tyre and for the car to not have fender flairs it needs to have such a narrow tyre.
I wonder if its loading capacity would be different to a GRX patrol because those narrow tyres would have a lower load rating.
Looks nice though.

check out the Nissan aid site :blonde:

Don't look at this one, clearance sale on factory vehicles R350K Patrol

Spec links for all the imported Patrols

Not to derail this thread, but I see on the last link that they talk about "new stock location - johannesburg", there is even a 10 seater patrol listed.... Does it mean that these patrols are sitting in johannesburg? And we cannot buy any of them.. :surprised: :thumbdown:

Saw two GRX'es on Garsfontein travelling West at about 12h30.

One fairly stock gold one, which was stopped at the robot, and then a relatively kitted out white one (replacement bumper and similar) which I passed at the Menlyn Park robot. I didn't see a sticker, but it was definitely a contender for a forum member's vehicle. I waved when I went past, and I got a wave back... Hello in any case. :)

It could very easily be Oom Mac with "Oom Olifant". IIRC, he got home from his outreach to moz yesterday, and he did travel through Nelspruit. His 'trol has a bunch of stickers on the back windows...

I saw a really nicely kitted Datsun Safari in my estate on the weekend, didn't manage to get any pics, but its full of stickers for the Put Foot Rally, was parked next to a white diesel GU(??) Patrol at the house.
Anyone on here?
