I have seen reference on this site for the Blizzard conversion, but now, for a mear $20,000 or so, you can upgrade the appearance of your boring old Nissan Patrol into a mean looking Hummer lookalike.

Rhino Buggies

Hmm, maybe not!

Cheaper to put a huge lift and aggressive tyres on ! If ya really want it to look mean, get it signpainted with a lairy design. You still won't have spent 20K !!!

Looked into this as a novelty project years ago... plenty of old MQ and GQ in good order but suffering from red cancer.

Drop the body and fit the new one...lots of traction aids and accessories for the nissan driveline and endless engine configurations including the 6.5 Chev.

You would end up with an original and very capable rig but without the Hummer quirks, size, trans tunnel etc.

Back then the wagon was about 15K and the soft top was only about 10K and was justifyable but now 20K????

I guess the new look website must have some serious overheads to operate, thats a huge jump in cost and now out of reach...making a rig in the $40K bracket doing it yourself. That equates to one hellava well setup 80 series touring and fun machine for $40K!!

Project shelved.

I've been contemplating these for quite a while, but no shed to do the project in !

I think the price increase is mainly due to the original owners selling off this part of the operation to concentrate on their buggies.

There's also probably a massive overhead for the new owners having to deal with the Reg authorities in every state wanting a different thread pitch for the clutch master cylinder mounting bolt.
