Default Finally my 1st 4WD

Hi all,
Well after many years of wanting a real 4WD and having a couple of softies (Forester and an Escape)I finally got one. It was about time as I am the only bloke in my family who doesn't have one.

It's a 94 NJ 3.0 manual. I got it for an average price with 300k on it. I convinced the wife that we needed it as I am towing the family to QLD from Tassie and the Escape is not a good towing vehicle.

I do all my own mechanical work so I wanted the 6g72 for ease of repairs.

After I bought it I did a compression check and discovered a burnt valve on cyl 6. The seller disguised it with a leaking exhaust flange. I should have known better but can't do anything about it now. So I am doing a top end rebuild.

I have got new suspension for it and am replacing the fluids and rear transmission mount. It has great tyres, new MAF, unis and muffler.

I am slowly working my way through all 150 pages of Gen 2 posts. I am about 1/3rd of the way through and have most of my questions already answered.

Thanks for all the great info!

Hi Omnius,
Your new Pajero sounds good. There's heaps of great 4WDing in Tassie, such a nice place. Lucky buggers.
Cheers
