nissan australia recently put out a safety recall on all nissan patrols manafactured from APR 98 onwards due to a chassis problem on all vehicles fitted with an after market bullbar.

cheif engineer yoshimoto katzou siad the chassis is designed to flex but with the bullbar acting as a brace, the chassis is not allowd to flex which in turn causes cracks around the engine mounts and radius arm mounts.

in extreme cases complete front drive assemblys seprated from the vehicle.

the australian authorities have been notefied and all vehicles that fit the bill need to get a chassis xray which costs about $700, less 25% of the cost by nissan.
