Pajero Off-road Mods / Prep

Post by Miner » Sun Jun 17, 2018 10:01 pm

Folks... got a couple of queries I’m struggling to get to the bottom of so would appreciate your feedback. Got a handle on the bumper trimming, rear bumper mods and skid plates... but also wondering about the following... my car is 2011 SWB 3.8L

16” Rims on Gen 4 SWB 3.8L:

I have seen plenty of Gen 4 3.5L SWB with 16” rims but no 3.8L SWB... are they suitable in terms of offset and brake clearance? Assume its ok as all SWB do not get the 4-pot callipers on the 3.8L LWB? Anyone running them? Currently on OE 18” rims. Looking to run a 16” 80 profile Geolander AT.

Low-profile / hidden towbars:

Got the dealer one fitted (without bull bar and using bush ranger recovery hitch) but would really like to get one of the proper ones that only the hitch sticks out... any idea where to get one? Preferably in AD?

Lift-kits:

My car has done just over 150,000km and stock suspension is about past its best... going to lift rather that pay 8k for new stock suspension. Dobinsons in Ras Al Khor looking like best option... any other recommendations (kits/vendors) DXB/AD ok. Preferably someone capable of replacing bushes and doing alignment.

Thanks for your help. :)

For reference:

16” OE rims will fit the SWB 3.8L. You can run 265x70x16” Yokohama Geolandar AT-S which ride nice and work well in the desert.

2” lift is ok, welcome extra clearance. I used a TJM kit and it feels very good. Don’t forget to adjust your alignment and note that your camber and toe adjusters may be seized... especially the rear camber... you may need to replace all the bolts and bushes on the rear camber bolts.

What about bumper trimming and bash plates for the Pajero?
