Nissan Patrol Ti L 2018 New Car Review
Luka is not one to throw money on the counter. If he can’t bend it, sand it, or put it in a shed, it’s probably not worth it. Jumping straight out of school to wield wrenches, he spent the last 12 years building diesel engines for a bus company in the Illawarra. Very handy when you set your heart on building the most powerful patrol car in Australia. He and a partner have rented a couple of hangars and estimates he’s distributed more than 30 patrols over the past four years, each contributing a portion and profit to the project. Last year, he began a three-month extended service holiday and gave the newly minted Patrol 35,000 km of Central and West Coast shaking. With real-world research and development, the Patrol is a very different beast today.
He came across the elaborate 2.8-liter station wagon on Facebook almost six years ago. Now with a fully built, non-boiling water heater, Luke could focus on improving the Nissan’s off-road prowess – a total of six times, giving credence to the ‘Built Not Bought’ windscreen sticker. Luke spent some time earlier this year doing things the right way, moving from installing gutters and drawers to the high-speed barwork steak that brought down the four-wheel-drive corner of the internet last year. After the chassis bent while trying to overtake some colleagues at Lithgow, Luke realized it needed a rebuild. The frame extension, jack-off style canopy and slide bar make this version of the Patrol the best yet.
Yours truly was there at the end of 2016 when the damage was done at Yalwal and the decision was made to cut the wagon
After a 350mm extension and a lengthened bracket, balance has been re-established with a much lighter plate now sitting firmly above the rear axle. The Patrol has been put on a diet and received a chopped ARB bar that blends seamlessly with the full-length side skirts built into the disc. Some homemade alloy drawers replaced the creaking wooden boxes with fresh alloy. Cooking is no longer boring, thanks to the sliding kitchen and the gas cylinder on the back. The Travel Buddy has cemented its place at the top of the drawers, cooking everything from cookies to roasts on the go. A folding slide accommodates a 45-liter Engel, and a newly installed slide-out drink bar in the rear is the perfect place to relax after a day on the trail. Luke’s biggest problem on the previous run was that he couldn’t set up base camp. Now with the roof up, he can quickly attach four legs and go exploring without damaging the disc or bending chassis components.
Nissan Patrol History
We all know patrols aren’t easy (especially this one), but luckily this powerhouse is more than capable of handling it. The 4.2L blacktop was completely rebuilt, balanced and designed with lower compression, with over $20,000 going to the intake thanks to a UFI turbo, 12mm injection pump, larger injectors and a monstrous intercooler setup. Sending all 180kW to the rear wheels, an alloy flywheel and a strong clutch can certainly take the abuse. Although the boost gauge keeps hitting the 30psi upper limit, it’s nearly impossible to get the kettle near the middle of the temperature gauge. Complementing the engine and contributing to outstanding economy of 18L/100km, a 3-inch direct exhaust and 4-inch stainless steel breather provide maximum clearance at both ends.
Six years later, worn 4-inch Dobinsons threads and Armada shocks are still soaking up the wheels. Some polished Superior control arms and custom control arms ensure the Datsun handles well despite carrying 250 liters of fuel and 50 liters of water under the tray. Luke isn’t afraid to cross it or test the hard ropes, even though the double-lock rig rolls on 35-inch Falken WildPeaks. Luke attributes this to two things: a 63% dropout rate behind the 4.2 field and a low center of gravity. Contrary to stereotypes, the Fastfit roof tent is extremely light and does not hinder the Patrol when cornered. Luke enjoys photography so a decent 12v system was a priority. The Patrol has four batteries: two under the hood to start and run the scout stereo system and two 115Ah AGM units under the tray, supplemented by 250W solar power and a host of CTEK tools. Luke can set up camp and not have to start the vehicle for a week! Now that’s living.
The roof tent pitches in seconds and there’s plenty of room for a chair on the handy viewing platform, affectionately dubbed ‘The Sundeck’ by Luke. What started as a joke between colleagues has turned into a very popular vehicle accessory, useful on Fraser Island earlier in the year. Inside, comfort continues with XR6 seats that save the backs of both passengers. The roof console from the Outback keeps the two UHFs looking neat, and the switches throughout the cabin match the factory colors. The triple lobe moves the gauges away from the dash and looks like a factory option on the pillar. Future plans are to remove the rear seats and build a platform to make better use of the space.
Luke is quick to thank the many people who helped him with the build. Without comrades pooling resources and ideas, this patrol would be just another GU. Instead, it’s something that’s turning heads across the country. With six builds in six years, it’s safe to say that this is probably not the final form of the Patrol. I know Luka quite well and I have no doubt that things will soon change for the seventh time. After all, is construction ever finished?

Utes are ingrained in our culture, so much so that even European luxury brands are starting to chase the double cab market.
Nissan never really thought that maybe, just maybe, a double cab with the handling and power of its TD42 Patrol would be the perfect 4×4 for Australian conditions. Where Nissan may have stumbled, Craig McGuiness was happy to embrace the idea and support it.
When Craig first got his hands on the 2004 GU Patrol, it belonged to his brother-in-law and still looked very much like a station wagon. Eventually, as it often does, the ZD30 became popular, so the deal was done and the pair swapped vehicles, with Craig offering his XH XR8 ute.
