Did a bit more work to the Pajero. added a shelf in the back to cook off. got a ARB bullbar for a case of corona and now have 41mm foam cell shocks. only fronts are installed as I am waiting for my lift springs.

New vs Old shocks:

what size tyres are you running on those rims? They look bigger than standard...

well iv done a few things to the shorty recently. i have had it converted to straight gas running an impco gas carby setup and i am stoked she runs so much better and no longer do i need to work a month of sundays to pay the fuel bill... i also made a light bar yesterday and mounted my 4 narva spotties (still need to paint the bar) we are going out to lerderderg/wombat easter weekend so im hanging to get back out and play and have to make sure the paj is a1 before then..

Hello everyone :)
just thought i would post a few pics up of my 4x4 , im new to world of off roading and have no experience at all but i went for a day trip with a mate up to barrington tops and i got the 4x4 bug . so i purchased a 1989 pajero v6 5 speed . its a old beast but i brought it off a close family friend and the motor was fully rebuilt less then 40,000km ago so im pretty confident it should be a reliable old girl . so far it is pretty much standard other then patrol rear coils , bull bar , uhf but i do have a wish list piling up already lol anyways here are a few pics will get better ones when this weather dry's up a bit

wish list so far
* air compressor mounted under bonnet
* roof basket with shovel mount
* awning with fly screen
* dual batteries
* fridge freezer unit
* new uhf
* electric winch
* 2 inch lift
*32 inch bighorn tyres

any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated , as i said this is my first 4x4 and im yet to go off road

looks like a good base to start from mate, especially with the reco engine! I would recommend joining a club. Cant beat it for training and experience. Keep us posted on the upgrades!

yes you can, some sites list them for the v6 others for the 2.5td but they are the same, regardless you need to make a custom pipe to reach the v6 filter housing. easy job. there is a how to on 4x4wire I jsut ordered a safari 2 days ago. ss20hf
