New guy from down under

Postby Ben H Aussie » Tue Nov 20, 2007 5:34 am

Hi all,
Ben here from Sydney Australia.
I am a member of the Pathfinder club of Australia and I thought that I would pop my head here and say hello also.
I have a 2006 TD Ti in Black and I love it. Its 12 months old now and has 40000 kms on it.

My previous ride was a 2004 3.0 TD Nissan Patrol.

Off the showroom floor I got the Nissan steel bullbar, 12,000lbs winch, Nissan tow bar, IPF 900 lights, Nissan snorkel and a Uniden 015SX UHF radio with a GME 4705 ariel.
There are no major mods to the Pathie other than some Mickey T tyres and some bash plates underneath. I would like a lift kit but that is on plan for the future.
Thanks, Ben.

Very cool setup. You got almost everything out of the box. I like the bumper with the winch. The snorkel would actually come in handy in the cranberry bogs of Jersey. Here is a caption for the patrol stuck in the sand, "Dad I think we are really stuck!"

Amazing how Nissan sells all that stuff directly down there. Up here they don't do that even for the XTerra, let alone our Pathfinders. Very nice rig, and fantastic pics.

Welcome, Ben!

Thanks for the pics, and thanks for pissing me off toward Nissan for NOT having ANY flavor of diesel here in the US. I'm a member of PCOA as well, and it just kills me seeing all the diesel options, as well as all the great aftermarket goodies.

As to your comment about getting a lift in the future, have you decided on which one you will get?
