  • My Delica

    Been lurking here a while and finally got round to this.
    Its a 3/97 Delica Super Exceed, 2.8 intercooled turbo deisel -4M40.
    Since getting it stock standard I have 2" lift from Ironman - coils, torsion bars and shocks, 1" lift from 31" wheels, fitted the flares, bash plate, snorkel,a fire exstinguisher, tinted the windows (all roof windows too) as well as some other bits and its now only a four seater.

            Glad you like

            Top heavy ?? I think it is no more so than most fourbies with some roof top luggage ( think Troopies for eg ) and I put all my stuff inside, heavy stuff down low.

            I'm booked in to do the 4WD training course at the end of the month, after that I reckon I'll join the club properly and do a few Big Day Outs ( forumites included).

                    Actually I was pretty impressed with the articulation on the Delica on the Training Day. Bit more wheel travel than the Pajeros

                      Is this coz the deli has a 5link rear?(not sure if it is 5link) as aposed to the gen2 paj 3 link?

                        That's an awesome looking Delica mate. I love them, i'd love to get one. Good to see one off road, i only ever see them onroad.
                        What's the fuel consumption like with the 2.8 deisel? Do they still have a 92L tank the same as the LWB paj?

                          G'day Rexy,
                          It's a big rig in person and it's great to see some pics of it's capability off road. I'm sure it would give my swb a run for it's money! You're not going to get too much use out of the winch with that sort of performance

                            Eastie - the winch is still unused

                            5 Link Suspension...??? Not sure what that is exactly BUT the solid rear axle appears to be connected to the body by 5 points and the drive shaft.....

                            Fuel ecconomy depends a great deal on driving style -
                            Lead foot 15L /100km
                            Off road easy / moderate 4WD 13 to 14 L / 100km
                            I usually average 12.5L / 100km with aircon. 60/40% city / hwy
                            The tank is small 60 L ( + 15 L with warning light)
