I just want all to know that it's not just a jeep thing. The Bushmaster rolled over and came to rest upside down. The fiberglass shell absorbed impact but did wrinkle front fenders some. Had to replace side mirrors too. Rick

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

It's Nissans first SUV. Cut the back out of a 720 cab, cut the front out of the bed, weld them together, glue on a fiberglass shell, add some sideburns from the shell to hide the seam from cab to bed, slap in carpet and backseat.

Use a photo hosting website like photobucket or imgur. Then post an [img] html code to the reply box and it will show the pic

It was Nissan's "fuck I guess we were really sleeping last year in '84 when Toyota came out with the 4Runner, didn't think it would catch on. Well I guess the new roll out of the WD-21 in '86.5........ nope..... alright we got it now. The '87 Pathfinder)

 

Trucks were sent to conversion companies, it wasn't made by Nissan. Sort of like the 620 4x4 conversions.

This is after rollover. Bra hides damage. I realigned roof by windshield since glass was hanging out an inch on drives side. One inch gap between frame and glass on passenger side. Replace air filter after being saturated with oil.

One other nice thing about Bushmaster is that u can put a full 4x8 sheet of plywood in it with back closed. Even a 10 ladder.

Another sad thing about the Bushmaster is: the fiberglass topper has totally faded out and is now pink

I was under the impression that the Patrol was the inaugural Nissan SUV?
