Owned her for 5.5yrs and no intention of getting rid of her anytime soon... 2011 SWB Gen 4-3 3.8 6G75 MIVECS.

Capable 4x4 in stock trim, been round a lot of places here in the UAE in stock form, laughed at heavily modified FJ’s and Jeep’s getting stuck at the hands of people who can’t drive. People over here have an unfounded and just dislike towards them over here... worst car for the dunes... blah blah blah... forgetting the Gen 3 was a T2 Dakar winner, the Gen 4 is just an evolution, they are used as FIA homologated rally raid cars... etc.

Full of yeast... 3.8 motor is great, spacing of 1-2 in the auto box the only sticking point for me. Super select system is great, especially 4HLc on the fly. I love mine. People who know what they are talking about also do too.

Here’s some pics:













As she stands:



TJM Gold Series 2” lift kit, Ironman 3pc bash plate set, dealer nudge bar, cut bumper, slider steps, TC mod loom, 18” rims swapped for 16” OE Enkei’s and Geolandar AT/S rubber.

What next? Going to stick on H&R spacers... that’ll probably do it....

Those dune look like a lot of fun.
Is their much of a performance market for the Pajero's in your neck of the woods

They are big fun...

Not much at all to be honest... there’s agents / shops for ARB, TJM, Ironman, Dobinsons, Lovells, etc... but beyond induction kits, which I don’t see as being worth the risk with it being so sandy, not a lot else.

Looking to the future for when the exhaust falls off, a performance replacement would be a good idea... but didn’t see much for the later Gen 4 6G75 even online.

Looks good Miner!

No shortage of sand over that way! Did you have someone take the pic of the Pajero in the dip, or are you good at levitating across the sand for pics like that (no foot prints in the sand)?

The NM/NP rims look good too. No brake clearance issues? Dads thinking of doing the same on his NT LWB.

Cheers

Bennie

LWB & LWB has different brakes. 16” rims won’t fit on a NS+ LWB.

Cheers bud. Think I’d come down behind the car so footsteps out of sight. Wasn’t going to go down the front though.

LWB has 4pot brakes so the 16” don’t fit unfortunately. Didn’t realise the old OE rims were Enkei, they’re super light.

17”+ for the four pots.... not sure tte 16” wheels would fit the LWB even with a different offset, the discs and the calliper radius are bigger all in with the four pots?

Thanks Miner and geopaj - I didn’t know that there were brake differences! That’s a shame.

Let’s end this impromptu hijack and get back into pics of the shorty!

Cheers
