    Just a wild guess here, but by the screen name "shortymav" and the Ford Badge, I'd have to say his Patrol is actually a SWB Ford Maverick. Identical in every way to the Nissan Patrol, just with a Ford emblem on it, and very possibly, a lower price tag.

    Congrats on the new rig.


    Oh, and this thread is worthless without pics!!

    you're right, they do look alike :P (stupid auto manufacturers, why do we have to keep reusing names?)
