Gallery: Chopped custom Nissan Y62 Patrol ute

By Photos: Alastair Brook, 27 Jun 2018 Custom 4x4s

Gallery Chopped Nissan Y62 Patrol feature

Left-of-field dual-cab is a neatly chopped Y62 Patrol.

DUAL-CAB ute sales may be surging, but we doubt you’ve seen one like this out on the tracks.

That’s because this left-of-field dual cab stems from the crazy idea of its owner, Peter Thorpe, who chopped the venerable Y62 Patrol to create the ultimate all-rounder.

What makes it so special? Well, apart from the dual-cab conversion – which you can read all about here (https://www.whichcar.com.au/reviews/custom-4x4s/custom-nissan-y62-patrol-dual-cab-ute-review) – the rig has some neat aftermarket kit.

Aftermarket gear:
-          Canopy by WF Fabrications, Bendigo
-          60L Engel fridge/freezer
-          Clear View Easy Slide
-          Dual spare-wheel carrier
-          ARB front winch bar, with Warn winch
-          ARB side-steps
-          ARB side-rails
-          ARB Intensity spotties and light bar
-          TJM Airtec snorkel (with a Unichip)
-          Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 315/70 R17 tyres
-          Black Rock Crawler 17x8-inch steel rims
-          Two-inch lift and ARB BP51 remote-res shocks
-          Airbag Man airbags (rear)
-          150L Long Ranger fuel tank

“I’m absolutely rapt with it,” owner Peter said, “… it just outperforms anything I have ever had. It’s just an amazing vehicle off-road.

“I’ve had heaps of vehicles – Toyotas, loads of other Nissans – but to be honest there’s nothing else that really compares to it.”
