      Thanks Bigbaddave. Will be keeping this for the memories when I cease 4wding. Have seen a Toyota Landcruiser with "King of the Road" on the rear. Time for the Pajero to wear "King of the Desert" tag! Never will we see a Prado able to list a lineage like the Pajero. Good posting. Cheers.

              I had the rare chance to see one of these Dakar models up close a few years ago (actually thinking about it, quite a few years now...).
              Apart from the shape they have not much in common with our standard Pajero's.
              From the short glimpse I could get before they told me off basically the whole suspension system is heavily modified and the body lift spacers seemed to be made of rubber.
              All air intakes are diverted to the inside of the car to further eliminate dust clogging the air filter(s).
              They refused to show the engine but by the sound of it I would say they put an Evo engine it it...

              Having said that I have to admit I never ordered one of the public forum stickers....
              You might wonder why as I'm quite active here for some time now.
              Well, I just think this forum needs more than a tiny sticker somewhere in the corner of a window....
              I see quite a few 4WD's on the roads, but really not so many Pajeros that look like they actually go off road.
              Turak traktors and delivery "van's" for the school runs, but properly set-up Pajero's, with a few dints and scratches?? Very rare indeed...
              I really think it is time for a full size sticker that can be put on the back of the car and another one as a sun screen for the windscreen.
              After all, we are sort of a dying breed here and there are just too many Pajero's on the road that don't have a forum sticker

                +1 totally agree. however if the Paj had better support from the likes of ARB/TJM I dare say more would be used offroad.

                  Not really as too many people I have spoken to told me they don't like the limitations of the indepent from suspension.
                  Seem everyone want to have huge lift kits, although it is getting hard to it right now that engeneering certificates are needed.
                  I think when it comes down to value for money the Paj will always win and so far I never had real troubles with my "low rider"

                    I recall reading that when the Pajero first entered the Dakar race it was indeed straight off the road. Before EVO I suspect. That's what really impressed me! Technology caught up to all entrants after that.
