Talk about a tricked-out SUV. The Nissan Armada Mountain Patrol shows what guts can do in the accessories department.

Nissan solicited social media to determine the looks of the eight-passenger off-roading experiment, which Nissan makes clear will not be offered as a factory package.
What the company ended up with is a backcountry camper’s delight.
Working from consumer suggestions on Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere, Nissan added a heavy-duty coil-over suspension, rock sliders, a spare tire swing-away, heavy-duty steel front and rear bumpers and auxiliary fuel storage.
