Nissan NV 4x4 Van Conversion
As the Nissan NV is based upon the Titan frame, rear differential and engine, it should have been fairly easy to add the front diff and create a true 4x4 van. In reality this should be almost identical to a Nissan Titan with a different cab/shell placed upon the frame. Nissan itself should have offered this from the beginning but perhaps they didn't think it would sell.
Now I am even more in love with this van and it is even more applicable to racers looking for a desert or other off the beaten track support vehicle. With the cost of the conversion kit running around $10K, it brings the NV right into the top end of the Nissan Titan 4x4's price range--again, not surprising though I'm betting some ingenious at home builders could throw this on a NV for a bit less than the $10K.
Regardless, don't be surprised if you see one of these beasties out on the trails in the near future!
