Warrior was ordered on 11 May 1859  from Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Company in Blackwall, London . The ship was laid down some time after 6 June 1859 on the West Ham side of Bow Creek when the P&O ocean liner Seine was launched, and the slipway was reinforced to support Warrior ' s weight. Full-scale production of the ship's iron began in August, and the construction probably began in mid-August. Indecision by the Admiralty and frequent design changes caused many delays and nearly drove her builders bankrupt before a grant of £ 50,000 was awarded to keep them solvent.  Her launching on 29 December 1860 was during the coldest winter for 50 years. She was frozen to her slipway and required the use of hydraulic rams , additional tugs , and dockworkers running from side to side on the upper deck to rock her free.  Warrior was commissioned in August 1861 to conduct her sea trials; she was completed on 24 October  for £377,292,  [Note 2] almost twice the cost of a contemporary wooden ship of the line.  Between March and June 1862, defects exposed during her trials were rectified, and damage repaired. Changes included the fitting of a lighter bowsprit and a shorter jib boom , along with the provision of extra heads amidships. 
What stands out the most with this wild ride are obviously the snow/sand tracks, known as the DOMINATOR Tracks compliments of American Track Truck , that measure in at 48 inches long, 30 inches high, and 15 inches wide. Naturally, the suspension and wheel wells were altered to accommodate this fine adjustment. However, the drivetrain – a -liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder with 170 horses under the hood and 175 lb-ft of torque – remains intact. Nissan did hook this ride up with some adventure equipment to make traversing in the backcountry a bit easier. Included on the list are tinted headlights, an ARB Gear Basket, LED lights, custom fender flares, and a Warn 4K winch. No word on whether or not the Trail Warrior will become a production vehicle in the near future but with a little inspiration and capital, you could very well trick out your own truck in a similar manner.
