Nissan Patrol Towing Specifics
The Nissan Patrol was first introduced in 1951 by the Japanese manufacturer as a series of 4x4 vehicles, offering impressive towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.
Nissan Patrol Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Nissan Patrol vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional, but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.
We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Nissan Patrol vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.
Check your Nissan warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Nissan Patrol models will not require a bypass relay, if universal electrics are fitted.
A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.
Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.
This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.
All Nissan Patrol models will not require coding.
Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.
Depending on the towbar, Nissan Patrol models will require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar.
All the Nissan Patrol models have towbars that require no bumper cuts.
Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.
All Nissan Patrol models have a nose weight of up to 140kg.
Towing weight is the weight that a Nissan Patrol vehicle can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.
For Nissan Patrol vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of up to 3500kg.
You will need to check the towing limit for your Nissan Patrol vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
