As you have mentioned, I am not taking a chance on putting in the 'Spider' Box. Hopefully after my return from Ladakh (if I can make it this year.. so not doing any planning will just take off), I should have some of my stuck funds released so might indulge then!!!

The diff breathers are pipes from the differential to ensure that there is escape mechanism when the diff gets heated. However while fording as the diff cools fast, there is a potential for water to get into the diff and bad things can happen... So it is advised to pull these pipes as high as possible... will try here in Bangalore and revert.

Cheers
Totally understand not trying on "insi pinsi spider" logic over whatever. Thanks for educating me on the breather - I thought it to be some such contraption, but my Pajero sure does not need it

I may go for Ironman suspension & liftkit with monster tyres...once my finance is in place - if at all I do it Have no problem with stock setup as of now.

Thanks for answering querries !!!


Cheers

Small Correction :

In #165 I mentioned by mistake that the Hertz Sub is 8" - it is a 10" sub.




Thanks

What say ?? I also thought of the rear bumper, rear door, door handles. Not that any of it needs replacement, just thinking aloud. Basically it makes for a good donor car.

Maybe get hold of a SWB 2 door someday & fit the stuff in it with body lift kit & 33" tyres

Don't know if I should sacrifice my engine which is Japanese with the HM Pajero engine (though it has only done 30K) That is the tempting part.

Need serious inputs from fellow Bhp-ians



Cheers



This engine is available now the garage owner called me, to check if I was interested. Well I am not, if anyone is, PM me for the details.




Cheers

Thumbs up Re: Mitsubishi Pajero 2.8

U P D A T E

My Pajero is finally growing up !! It is gaining 2" in height ! An Ironman liftkit is ordered & paid for. Thanks Rahul for the help. Thanks Zac for doing the needful.

So now the Pajero will ride a little higher but more importantly a lot better with the Ironman setup. Looking forward to the kit & then the install.




Cheers

The goodies are in mail right now. Will post pics when I get it installed. BTW an Ironman kit is also available for the Grand Vitara. With the kind of driving you do, I'd say look at it seriously.

Well the Ironman kit is finally in my hands. Will post the pics in a bit. 4 Shocks, 2 Coil Springs & 2 Torsion Bars = better road holding & handling - body roll

So here are some pictures of the Ironman 2" liftkit components

The 4 Shockers
The 2 Coil Springs
The Two Torsion Bars

And a whole lot of improved handling..I certainly hope so.

Enjoy !! Will post more pictures of the fitment & the before & after, once I have them fitted.

@ Razor total damage is touching 55k, sure hope it is worth it !!





Cheers
