Nissan have a reputation for making tough, reliable work-horses. Whatever your Nissan 4x4 is - Patrol, Pathfinder, Terrano or Navara - you've got a good solid wagon that'll take you over a lot of ground. Of course you might want to think about what else your work-horse requires to keep it (and you) safe and functioning well, because no matter how well it's performing now you can get it to perform better.
Australia has some pretty challenging and varied terrain, but by outfitting your vehicle with the right accessories you'll be equal to whatever challenges come at you. At Tough Toys our business is helping you find the right accessories, both for your Nissan and for you.
Starting with you, remember that a clean water supply is essential wherever you are. Carrying water with you adds weight - lots of it - and takes up space you may have other plans for. The water you find in the outback isn't safe to drink without treatment though. Purification tablets will make it safe, but they'll also make it taste like a swimming pool. Try our filter systems instead. For bulk supply we stock a jerry can with a built-in filter good for 20,000 litres, or try the Life Saver bottle with its 250 litre filter. This handy bottle works at any angle, so as well as being great for drinking or filling the kettle it can also give a source of clean water for irrigating wounds. It's a great bit of kit and none of us go anywhere without one.
Ah yes, wounds. When you need a first aid kit, you really need it. You need it fast; you need it to have the right stuff; you need it to be in good condition and you need to lay your hands on what you need right away.
Now let's look at what you can do for your Nissan. Rough terrain can be challenging in all sorts of ways, the most obvious being that it’s rough! Having a sump torn out when you’re a long way from the nearest road could be called an inconvenience. It could be called a lot of other things too, but we're not going to print those here. There's a way to avoid that risk, though. Tough Toys can supply an underguard for your Nissan that removes that worry. Made from 3mm cold rolled steel, it should be tough enough to cope with anything that gets thrown at it. We also supply long-range fuel tanks by the same manufacturer; these are just as tough and they hold fuel too! The best news is that they're simple drop-in replacements for the standard tank but give up to double the fuel capacity.
Challenging terrain is not necessarily hard, and loss of traction can be a problem. In mud, snow or sand, tread recovery devices might be just what you need and you won't find any tougher than our Australian-made versions. Think about our exhaust jack, too. Using your vehicle's own exhaust gas to lift it, it's great for easy wheel changes. It can help you out of soft sand or mud too, though; sunk to the axles? Our exhaust jack will haul her out.
A snorkel is just what your Nissan needs for river crossings and to prevent sand and dust causing problems, especially in desert environments. We have one from Safari to fit your vehicle; with tough tubes and perfect seals, these quality snorkels let you wade deep water and shrug off clouds of dust.
Whatever accessories you need for your Nissan, you can be sure of one thing; everything supplied by Tough Toys is the best of its type we can find. The parts we sell are the ones we use on our own vehicles.
Why would you choose to get on a plane and fly off to strange places when there's so much to explore in our own backyard. The Australian Outback landscape has no shortage of diverse on and off road destinations. From vast deserts and rocky roads to beautiful beaches and overgrown forests, Australia really has got it all!
