Re: Nissan Patrol

I would say TD4.2 but im a bais TD4.2 owner it's hard to say mate without knowing the overall condition of both the Patrols such as service history driveline and body condition etc.

Re: Nissan Patrol

If they are both in similar condition.....I would go for the 4.2! Would not even look at the 2.8
But there are a lot of happy 2.8 owners out there!!
Being 1999 they must be GU's

Lots of stuff in the Nissan sections here on both motors, even on the pro's & con's of both those motors - well worth a read & maybe even a search or two. (moved thread into General Nissan btw! ;) )
