I was at a pub awhile ago and talking with a Japanese couple who have been in East Africa for a few years. I mentioned the possibility of the Nissan NZ2500 as an expedition vehicle (they were in an LC200). Apparently this vehicle is sold under some different name in Japan, but after I drew a napkin sketch he knew what I was talking about. I know the Ford full-size vans are gaining popularity due to their big engines and off-road modifications available. I wonder if the NZ2500 could be an interesting Japanese counterpart to this?
I know very little about the NZ2500 and mostly see them used by JICA and other Japanese aid agencies. Is it on the Titan platform? Presumably it isn't on the Patrol platform. Figured I'd post here since you guys are the expo Nissan experts.
