2 inch Body Lift Kit - Patrol SWB.
This kit is for the short wheel base Nissan Patrol it contains all the parts to raise your truck's body by a nominal 2 inch
Raising your body will enable you to fit bigger diameter tyres allowing you more clearance under the vehicle.
The 2 inch kit is the easiest of our kits to fit needing only the modification or removal of the fan cowling on the radiator - further instructions can be found Here and you'll find some FAQs Here.
We can also make a 3 inch and 4 inch kit for these vehicles but these would need additional spacers on the steering linkage
We are also quite happy to answer questions on the phone, our phone number is +44 (0) 20 3598 2107 (sorry english only)

Bolts & Nuts
8.8 high tensile steel bolts
All Bolts 50Nm
Refer to the general fitting page, remove the fan/radiator cowling (if fitted) before lifting.
Bolt positions - From the front:
- Front (by bumper) 10mm down through
- Rear of front wheel arch (in Cab) 10mm down through
- Centre by door pillar (under truck) 12mm up through
- Rear (by cross member under truck) 12mm up through
The 12mm bolts go up through into the body - there is no access to the nut on these, we supply the correct thread to fit the nut - all the 10mm bolts come down through and have a nut on the bottom
TIP: before starting get as much penetration oil into and on to the 12mm nuts and thread - we find that Plus Gas is superior to WD40 for this but WD40 is better than nothing. Do this for as long as you can - a week or so if you can. About a hour or so after the first treatment, attempt to undo the bolt by a quarter turn (don't force it) and then do it up again, after the second undo it a bit further and so on.
The nuts on the 12mm bolts are captivated but can come loose, they are totally inaccessible so that if they do come loose you would have to make a hole in the body sill to get to them

Do you have any kits bigger than 2 inches for this vehicle?
We can make the lift kits up to 4 inches, however the steering linkage may have to be lengthened when fitting a kit over 2 inches high.
