  • New Snorkel and Long Range Tank

    Well, I've finally got some pictures of my SWB Diesel Pajero, before and after having an Airtech snorkel and a Long range fuel tank fitted by TJM on the Gold Coast.

    With the new muffler it does seem a little bit more noisy than before but with the windows up and stereo going I don't notice it anymore. The snorkel doesn't seem to generate any extra wind noise. I haven't had a chance to use the pump on the long range tank to transfer fuel to the main tank yet, but I'll see how that goes later this week.

    The only major disadvantage I have come across so far is that the factory tie down/recovery points don't fit any more, so at the moment I have nothing at the rear of the car to attach a snatch strap to. I think the only option I have will be to fit a tow bar (for another $500), if anyone else has any suggestions please let me know.


    Some of the photos are shown below :-

        In theory its 65 litres. In practice I'm not sure if I can get all of it pumped over into the main tank. I'll know more next week when the tanks empties and I'll see how well the transfer works.

          Yep. Looks like about a litre in size. I'll have to keep a closer eye on it than before. There are some pictures under the bonnet in the link to the Picasa web page.

            Now I know what mine will look like.

            I have the red shorty as well - but also have a Smartbar and i did get the tow bar fitted. Mine is a lot dirtier to

            What was the overall cost of this if you don't mind mentioning it.

            I look forward to see how you go as I am interested in both those extra - initially the aux fuel as I have found the shorty a bit limiting (fuel wise) when towing the camper.

              Hi Jeff,

              It all looks great! With the sub tank does the rear hang down like a long wheel base or do the photos not really reflect that very well? Any side on pre and post photos?

              Cheers

                It was about $2600 for the snorkel and the tank fitted. Both snorkel and tank are for a trip to Cape York later this year and in a few years time I'm hoping to do an east to west crossing of Australia (when I get some more long service leave).

                  Josh,
                  It doesn't really hang down too much at all and is not really visible from the side. I'll try and grab a better after photo on the weekend.

                  Here is after :-

                      Are you going to upgrade the struts and springs for the trip should be a good trip this year due to it being the year they do their grading of the road. This only happen every 2 years.

                        Looks good.

                        I was supposed to be going up to Cape York myself this year but the extra cash spent on the car getting the X instead of the R put an end to that so I'm spending this year prepping and will go next year.

                        I'll be very interested to see how you pack and a report on your trip.

                          Heading off after the Qld School hols are finished, about the 10th of July.

                            As the car is only just over a year old I was probably not going to look at the Struts and Springs until after I got back from the trip. However, I'm going to keep an eye on how it rides now with the extra weight of the tank and fuel and probably a tow bar.

                              For weekends away I normally just fold the rear seats forward and everything but my OzTent fits in fairly well. However for the Cape trip I'll remove the rear seats to give me a bit more room. If I need more space, I also have a roof box I can bolt to my roof racks and this is great for bulky but not overly heavy stuff.

                              Its a shame you can't get to the Cape this year, but it gives you something to look forward to for next year.

                              Bye Jeff.
