    Just another nugget

    Yeh mate she is dual fuel. I honestly can’t remember the k’s.. To be honest when I buy cars of this age I take little notice of the mileage and look more at the condition.. In my opinion they tells ya more about reliability.. this 1 had a reco head and reco gearbox with clean oil and green...

    Reliable but not overpriced.

    So $15k is a decent budget in my opinion. I’m a Mitsubishi fan and have owned every generation of Pajero. A couple tritons and a challenger. I’d say the challenger is better value than the Pajero . Both are great cars but if you don’t need the luxury and size of a Pajero no use paying the...

    New vs Old vehicles - your choice and why?

    I can safely say I have no issues with modern tech. 1 of my cars is a fully custom built airbagged and turboed hilux minitruck with aftermarket ecu.. so that doesn’t scare me.. but I say I prefer older-ish 4x4s. i currently own a 98 gu with an rd28.. not modern but not ancient (in my old...

    1990 gen 1 pajero looking for parts

    MN Triton EGR fixes

    I owned a 2014 mn triton for many (now sold) I bought it new and sold it with about 190,000k on it. I can tell you now first hand that it is widely exaggerated the effect the egr system has. Service your car on time with good oil, LEAVE the egr in place and fit a catch can. You will have...

    4.2 gu Ute or 2014 hilux 3ltr

    I currently own a gu wagon, swb Pajero and a 2014 hilux 4x4 extra cab I use as a work Ute. I’m gonna upset a few people here but the hilux is weak compared to a patrol. The hilux in my opinion is a good work Ute and that’s about it. The patrol is a much more solid rig, better off road with...

    Gen 1 Pajero swb front locker...

    Triton vs patrol

    I used to own an mn triton that was pretty well kitted out. It was a great car that was a great daily driver and weekend rig. Once I no longer needed a Ute for work and got a company car I sold off the triton and went back to having old 4b’s that are weekend only toys. My wife currently has...

    ml triton suspension

    Iv got a mn dual cab triton, I fitted a 40mm tough dog lift and honestly cannot fault it. If you go a full 2"/50mm they will often get driveline vibration due to tailshaft angles. You can fit a wedge but that often doesn't completely rectify it. Also the higher the lift the greater the front...

    I worked in the generator industry for the past 8 years. We dealt with rentals, sales of both new and secondhand sets and repairs/maintenance of sets ranging in size from 2kva to 2000kva. My personal opinion is I would never touch a Chinese/ cheap set. I have seen them not only fail when most...

    What project car?

    80s Pajero short wheel base. Very cheap to buy, very cheap for parts and an awesome base for a project. Personally I'd do a solid axle swap on the front and chuck in even a small Toyota 1uz 4.0ltr v8 or ls1 if you want and it'll be an absolute beast. It won't cost you an arm and a leg and it'll...
