  • before going 4x4

    pajs seems to be behaving itself now, ill be going over it a couple of times through the week before going to wambat on the weekend. it is not my daily drive so when i get home ive been taking it for a spin to make shure nothing is going to play up.

    just wanted to ask for sugestions as any regular checks you guys do before you go out 4wheelin??? other then cooling system and oils???

    cant wait to go out but really worried about the paj shiting itself while im out..

    Just fluid levels, tyre condition including spare. Jack and wheel brace is in the car. Recovery gear is in good order. Drinks, munchies and your phone should be fully charged in case you need it. And maps of the area. Worst case you may need to call for help from a mate. Would not be the first, I have been called out several times this year, I will be away this week (sunny Brisbane) so cannot offer any assistance should you need it.

      Here's what I usually take as a minimum:

      Phone
      Phone charger
      12v battery pack/jump starter
      UHF
      MAPS + GPS
      Shovel
      Jack
      Tools+Jumper leadds
      Snatch Strap and Shackles
      Snacks
      Plenty of water
      Sleeping bag (it gets cold in the bush if you get stranded as happened to my mate in Toolangi)

      Let someone know where you are going, in case it all goes pear shaped

          Make sure you can undo the wheel nuts. Tyre shops sometimes do the nuts up REALLY tight.
          TIME IS RUTHLESS.
          A Subaru '16 Outback Diesel has finally replaced the NH Pajero. (Also had an NA once upon a time). Still got an 89 Sierra.

            Yeah, A good quality breaker bar and the correct socket is invaluable for making life easier when the wheel nuts are on tight. Even better is a good quality socket set that contains the breaker bar, 21mm socket required as well as other bits for when things go bad:

              In my honest opinion, grab a big 500mm breaker bar. Those little ones in the kits are decent but a big bar makes it even easier again.

                  James I'm curious why is that ? Do Patrols come with a bag of corks in the glove box ?

                            Just don't drive like a twat and you'll be right mate. Go with another car the first couple of times til your confidence in yours is up. Poke all the mud with a stick or better yet get someone dumber than you to go through first. Wombat has some holes that are WAY deeper than they look.

                              At least you got to go offroad in yours. Mine would shit itself at the very mention of offroad.
