And, what is the total weight of the vehicle, as of now, with a full load of fuel and 4 of your best well fed buddies? I think you did do a weighing long time back; have you rechecked it any time recently?
There will be a slight slope with a couple of washers raising the front.


Total weight with recovery equipment, full tank and 2 pax I took last time was 2620KGS. Done just after winch was fit.

Forgot to upload two pics from the last DIY.

The table with the two stools folded. Doing a rattle test now. If it rattles, I will stick a layer of thin bubble wrap to the underside of the table:

Stowed away inside. The slight lip of the L section prevents the table from sliding in the front.

EDIT:

Still experimenting with clamping options and designs. Has to be firm and secure.

You see a clamp for two pipes - another DIY is offing. Details soon.

Glad to know youíre all safe and the vehicle has minimal damage.
Iíve never off roaded, let alone drive more than a thousand kms in my life. Once I get a few miles under my belt I think I might try off roading a bit. Donít know what to learn and where to start first.

This is for offroad in off camber / side slope situations.

To counter a skid is when you turn in the same side as your rear - it is for On road / on dirt track
A topple in reverse? Youíd have to turn away from the direction if youíre topping while reversing right?

I have started a structured training school.

Doesn't matter which direction, front or back - always turn in the same direction as the perceived topple.

What brand of Awning do you have on the Pajero? I have been trying to source one for mine but it is so very expensive. I have been looking at Ironman 4x4 and ARB..any other choices??

I have the Foxwing awning from RhinoRack/OZTent. Had sourced from Australia with the roof rack. We had done a group buy for around 4 roof racks and awnings and shipped by sea so it was reasonable for us.

I had earlier bought an awning from aliexpress and it cost me landed 18K - with shipping and duty. That was a straight awning and not the 270į one like the current one.

So the locks came from Aliexpress and I updated the drawer with the proper latch type lock. Surprisingly came within 20 days and not the usual 2 months.

When I had fit my winch, I had to cut out a piece of aluminium cover to access the free spool as seen in this pic:

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attac...n-16-home.jpeg

I didn't like the cut out on the right side as seen in the pic. I had the cut out section and decided something needs to be done.

High strength neodymium magnets to the rescue.

Step 1:
Drill holes:

Step 2:

Use a rivet gun to rivet the magnets to the aluminium sheet:

Step 3:
The end of the rivet extends at the back and is not flush:

So use a blunt punch and hammer the rivet flush:

Step 4:

Voila it fit nicely on the vehicle:

The magnets are really strong and takes an effort and leverage to remove it. So not worried about it flying off with the wind.

Yesterday at the Bandra sea link toll I noticed a sequential speedo reading! What luck!

Hi Tejas, love ur build and have been following u since a long time in Tbhp. I too have a 2010 Pajero which i want to start doing overland trips. I am on the lookout for a wheel spacer for the Pajero to make the wheel track distance slightly wider. May be a 30mm spacer. Would u have any idea about spacers for the Pajero in India.. .. thanksMitsubishi Pajero SFX - Project Overland Conversion-img_20201030_165343.jpg
