My 2008 NS Pajero (ex-police) has many mods. The engine has a chip, custom three-inch exhaust and accelerator module. The body has a two-inch lift. Itís also got 32-inch Mickey Thompsons; underbody protection; custom drawers; tilt-down fridge slide; SmartBar with Warn winch; LED light bar; roof rack; a jerry can; and gas cylinder holders. I have also fitted a lock-up kit to the tranny and in-dash offroad navigation. My favourite spot is Stockton Beach.
This ute is my pride and joy. Iíve had it around a year now and am yet to get it stuck. It absolutely loves the mud and makes my old D4D Hilux look like a toy. Itís got a worked 350 Chev; custom stainless 4-1 extractors; dual three-inch exhaust dumped at cab; 60 Series diffs, gearbox and power steering; four-inch West Coast lift and shocks; 35-inch muddies on Sun Rims; Big Fuel pump; custom tank; and nine-inch HID spotties.
I bought the Jeep in March this year. The best places I have been so far is the Scenic Rim, The Springs 4x4 Park, Glass House Mountains (this would have to be one of the best) and Bribie Island Ė all in warm and sunny Queensland.
Iíve had it since new. Itís pretty much stock with Tough Dog suspension, BFGoodrich KOs, a bullbar, and Lightforce 240 Blitz driving lights. Itís done 80,000km Ė half of that has been off-road. The best place Iíve taken it is to The Gulf of Carpentaria via Lorella Springs. I have also taken it on the Gibb River Road twice, up to Mitchell Plateau once, and up the Nathan River Road twice. Itís also been to Cameron Corner, and itís done a trip up the Strzelecki to Innamincka, then on to Haddon Corner and Birdsville. This is a well-travelled Triton and I love it.
