Default The BushSkinz SWB Paj

Hi Guys,
A number of you guys have been interested in our vehicle and the mods etc, which we have done. Now that the list of things still to come is getting a lot shorter I thought I would post up some pics and list the accessories fitted to the vehicle. There is more gear going on over the coming couple of months so I will add pics and update as things get installed.

Okay so hear goes it the list of mods to make our little 2007 NS Pajero SWB 'X' in to a real adventurer:

2 inch lifted suspension (soon to be replaced with either Bilstein/Lovell's or Koni adjustable/Lovell's)

32.5" Maxxis Bighorn Muddies on the OEM 18" rims

Uniden CB hidden with only mic neatly located on the dash, with 2.1m GME Antenna for the outback trips and a t shirt duck tapped to the top as a flag when required

Dual Batteries with redarc isolator, remote over ride under dash, All rounder maintenance free 80amp battery, TJM battery tray, 70amp cabling to the 3 HD power outlets in the rear.

TJM Airtech Snorkel, Still needs a little silicon to make it completely water tight before the cape trip.

Pioneer 7" double din DVD head unit, Pioneer 6.5" splits, Pioneer 6x9 rears, ipod connection, 3.5mm aux input and various other inputs.

Sound Deadening house insulation between outer panels and the chassis in the rear.

Annoying seat belt reminder unplugged

ARB Deluxe Steel winch bar, with custom panel trimming to improve clearance to the front wheels.

ARB high output compressor mounted under passenger seat.

300w Inverter mounted under passenger seat.

Mio GPS system

Thule Sports roof bars.

Thule luggage box.

Rhino alloy luggage tray.

Ironman Awning passenger side.

Billet Race Craft Front and Rear Diff Breathers, Transmission and Transfer Breathers.

Custom Bed/Storage unit with cooking bench and fridge slide for the Waeco.

Spider Diesel Performance Unit

ARB Camp Light and LED camp light for the kitchen

Mitsu gear - Factory Rear Locker, tint, tow bar, chrome door handle protector and mirror protectors etc.

And of course our BushSkinz 4x4 Intercooler, Sump and Transmission Guards along with our new BushSkinz 4x4 Rock Sliders!!!

Still to come in coming months:
Rear Awning and custom corner piece to connect the awnings
Custom Stainless steel water tank in storage unit
Ironman 9500lb Electric Winch
Aux Fuel Tank
New Spotties

The best thing about this setup is that it takes about 60 seconds to be setup ready to sleep for those quick sleeps on the side of the road, and 5 minutes to be setup with awning out, bed made, table and chairs out and a drink in the hand. But by far the best thing is that it takes about 5 minutes to pack up and be on the road again.

Below are a few pics that show most of the accessories, I will add more as the remaining few pieces get installed.

Thanks Dave, I must say that once a vehicle is set up well for camping it makes life very easy, rather then having to spend that last part of sunset setting up tents and tarps etc. You can pull a chair out and enjoy it because even in the dark it setting up is so easy.

Could be just me but I always find that we seem to pull in to the nicest places when the sun is going down.

Also the easiest way to keep the Mrs happy is to make her life easier in the kitchen. So if things are easily accessible and easy to operate you can spend more time sitting rather then having to help find everything

Cheers,
Kieron

Thanks guys,
Picked up an ARB rear awning yesterday (Ironman at this stage don't have a rear awning) price was reasonable at $230 however I have had to make the mounting brackets to attach it to the rack as the mounts are optional. I believe they are optional on the Ironman awning as well however they were included in the awning they sent me for some reason. Once the brackets finish drying I will mount it up to the car and post up a pick. Unfortunately I have left it to late to have the corner piece made before the Easter long weekend which is a bit of a pain seen as it is raining so much.

Both the Ironman and the ARB awnings are identical in build aside from one has a black cover and the other is gray.

On other news I have decided that I am not happy with only having an additional 65L for the aux tank. Simply because I only want a maximum of 2 jerry cans on the roof and for the canning trip we want about 200-210L on board. So we are going to do a custom tank probably out of Stainless Steel, and cut the shallow well out of the back, rough estimate is that I should get about 90-100L based off of the measurements I have done. This will be a big job so with everything else it won't get done till after the cape trip in June.

Cheers,
Kieron

Ok guys so hear is the pic of the ARB rear awning. There are a couple of very minor differences between the ARB and Ironman in the legs but essentially do the same thing and the rest of the build is the same. For my money which ever you can get at the best price and the size you want is the one to go with. neither are better then the other in terms of quality.

Cheers,
Kieron
