• Quigley makes a Nissan NV 4X4 van, let us say hallelujah

    Quigley makes a Nissan NV 4X4 van now. Looks pretty bad ass to me.

    Quigley Motor Company, Inc has been around since the 60s and their 4×4 van conversions are legendary. Now, Quigley went and slapped a Magna – single speed transfer case with 2wd and 4wd position, to make a Nissan NV 4X4 van.  The Nissan NV van is a mighty good vehicle. I had over a month’s worth of time at the helm of the base model V6 and it was remarkably  utilitarian. I took it off road too. I had to set up for an off road event and it went just about everywhere I told it to go.

    With its long, pickup truck-like nose and Nissan Titan underpinnings, the Nissan NV is an ideal candidate for 4X4 conversion. Not only did Quigley accomplish this task with 2500 and 3500 Nissan NV vans, they managed to do it without raising the ride height. All Nissan warranties remain intact while Quigley adds the same warranty to its off road components.

    quigley_nissan3“The Quigley 4×4 Nissan NV van will have a 3 year (36 month) / 36,000 mile warranty on the 4×4 components with a 5 year (60 month) / 60,000 mile limited warranty on the 4×4 Quigley powertrain components, the same coverage as the OE Nissan NV. Quigley covers warranty on all the 4×4 system components, while not affecting the Nissan warranty on all other non-Quigley components.” – – Quigley4X4.com

    The conversion costs $10,895.00 across the board. All of the acceptable variations of Nissan NV vans cost the same. With the base model Nissan NV 2500 costing $26,420, you can score a Nissan NV 4×4 for under $40,000. That’s damn good considering the amount of engineering and testing that goes into these things.

    “Engineered to meet your needs, our four-wheel-drive system’s design is the cornerstone of our business. We can offer you the value and performance of our proven O.E.M. four-wheel-drive system for the new Nissan NV full-size vans. Some of the added benefits include improved ride and handling characteristics, low center of gravity, no lock-out hubs and consisting of 90% Nissan parts.

    The Quigley 4×4 Nissan NV will be a coil spring over shock Independent Front Suspension (IFS) style system. The transfer case will be a manual shift, single speed system (i.e. 2WD and 4WD positions only). Quigley’s components are from the industry’s major leading manufacturers, such as American Axle, Magna. Quigley maintains as many OE components as possible for ease of service.

    At Quigley Motor Co., Inc., safety and quality are our top concerns during our engineering and development processes. The 4-wheel drive system has been engineered to maintain all safety features. Our 4×4 Nissan NV IFS will retain all OE steering components, brake components, suspension components and all safety features such as 4-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS), tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and vehicle dynamics control (VDC) system. QMCI uses a number of independent testing facilities to verify functionality. All vehicles must pass a rigorous Quality Control Process before they are released for shipping.” – – Quigley4x4.com

    Look, I’m selling you a product that I have yet to drive; however, I have driven Qugley products before andthey are astounding off road. They take into account many variables before slapping in a transfer case and a front axle in a van. I drove a Quigley conversion Ford van many moons back and it went EVERYWHERE the beefed up pickup trucks went. I even used it to tow a busted Jeep Comanche back to the highway. The components felt like they came from the Ford factory and engagement was seamless.

    I was in the process of looking at EarthRoamer, who makes highly capable off road RV conversions, as they are located in Colorado for a future video/written review – but they are incommunicado. I’ve met some of the Quigley people in the past (it’s a family company) and they are mighty nice.
    It’s unfortunate for me that they are located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – as it’s a bit of a journey from Colorado. Still, they occasionally attend events, shows and conventions – so, perhaps, The Fast Lane Car will jump in a Nissan NV van 4×4 and give you some entertaining video!
