From 1988 to 1994 Ford sold a rebadged Nissan Patrol in Australia as the Ford Maverick. This Maverick features a TD42 turbo diesel engine and manual transmission. 2-inch Dobinson’s HD springs make room for 35×12.5R15 Mickey Thompson MTZ on 15-inch black alloy wheels. Fox shocks with remote reservoirs smooth out the ride. The Maverick also features an ARB winch bumper and Warn XD9000 winch. 9-inch LED offroad lights help light up the trail at night.

Custom sliders protect the side of the Maverick. A custom rear bumper features a swing out tire carrier as well as a water tank for camping. A roof rack holds a Darche roof top tent and awning.
