Re: Nissan concept!!

Photoshop concept vehicle. I would like to see CCV do a low roof NV with a CCV hightop pop top.

Re: Nissan concept!!

I really like this!

We have an Outside Van Sprinter now and are envious of our friends who have 4x4 SMB's - we're tired of being left behind when they leave the graded improved back roads.

Rock crawling is not on our horizon but better clearance for fire roads, moderate 4x4 areas, and ability to trek in snow are obstacles that make us stay home now.

I'm 6'7" tall and ducking into a normal height van isn't going to happen at this chapter in my life. Our high roof Sprinter is as low as I'd like to go inside. But a high roof Nissan with a pop-top... now that sounds like a winner to me.

Also, our Sprinter is our second daily driver and moving to something slightly smaller that the wife would feel more comfortable taking to the grocery, etc would be a bonus. A Ford 350EB would be harder for her than our current Sprinter. We could go with an 350RB but that doesn't solve me having to crawl into the van to load the refrig, etc

So, smaller overall on-the-ground footprint, higher than normal roof + a pop-top, 4x4, ability to go more places... we might have to do without a few luxuries we have now but I'm going to pursue this idea!

Re: Nissan concept!!

Even if it didn't have a pop top just a rack up top would do. But yeah the tires, lift, bumper and light bar makes the vehicle look great.
So it can be done
