    Have you been in Chch at all? Think I might have seen you driving round. Looks like you're based out of Dunedin from the pic of Long Beach and the highway before Shag Point.

    my new rig! 2009 suzuki equator rmz-4

    Interesting, the shortbed Frontier was sold here in NZ as the Nissan Navara. We never got the rebadged version. The 4.0 is pretty potent, my father owns an R51 Pathfinder with the same engine.

I purchased the vehicle in June 2015, after having my previous Subaru Forester (2.5 dual-range 5-speed) written off (not my fault). The Forester was slightly modified, with...
