It looks really nice :)

But why did you use the nissan transmission ... ?
Btw. what specs does it have ? (Gears, Gear Ratio and so on ... ) and the transfercase ? Is it electrical shifting ?

This transmission is from a stock Nissan Patrol (Emirates call the Nissan Patrol NISSAN) 90s model (the ones came with 4.2 engines)
These transmission are able to handle big amounts of HP & torque (1000+ HP if used wisely)
The transfer case comes with the same transmission.

Now , because the diff. hub (R&P) of the Nissan Diff is on the passenger side you have to use the transfer case of the Nissan as well.

the ratio ..... I'm not sure about it but a V8 will make anything work :nx:

Hi WildFire,

Where have you had the fabrication work done? Frankenstein is suffering axle tramp (wrap) and I want to get a ladder made up.

You mentioned "Patriot work shop in musaffah" - where is this? Do you happen to have a GPS ref?

Regards
