Are the hooks front and rear not 'rated' on the PS?

dont know but our local 4wd drive club insist on the proper attachments of hooks like this

which is a bolt on job on a vehicle with a proper chassis as oppossed to a unibody like the Pajero.It has been a real saga on my pajero .

I would have to say The suspension handling and ride is atrocious.

Can't say i agree with you, i think all three are at least adequate if not good for a car of this type. However you only need to read reviews to see major disagreement on this subject and many others for that matter.

Overall i think the PS is a great vehicle, not perfect, better than some and worse than others but as an all round package, great.

if you enjoyed the ride of the Pajero (independent suspension) stick with it, be like chalk and cheese ... as the Pajero Sport is a revamp of the Challenger (similar ride & less room) but a very capable 4wd ...
with a much needed and improved transmission and new euro compliant steam engine (fill that catch can ) ...

we all know our vehicles are a compromise,we have to make our choices .sometimes the choices are complex tradeoffs ,i know the ps is actually a triton in disguise

These type of aftermarket hooks bolted onto a modern thin chassis rail of a Triton, Challenger or Pajero Sport will fail as the chassis metal is very thin, factory loops are much stronger but the factory hook will open up if the load is applied to the end of the hook. The Mitsubishi front loops on the Pajero have been test by MMAL engineers (there is even a video on it) and not only did they pass with flying colours the monocoque body of the Pajero did not distort. On any modern 4wd you should use a bridle between the 2 front points to spread the load unless it is a very light pull. A recovery hitch or just using the hitch pin of a HD tow bar is fine on the rear.

Problem is there are too many of the "old guard" that are hanging onto 1970's and 80's ideas in 4wd clubs. You can fit "rated recovery points" but none of these are actually tested on the vehicles they are designed to fit. I have seen more aftermarket points bend and bolts sheer and not a single welded factory loop fail.

OJ.
