Jonas from Reykjavik in Iceland got in touch to ask about removing the back two seats in his long wheel base Pajero. He also sent a picture showing a Paj with a similar colour to my own.
It’s a later model to mine, with the blister arches. I quite like the nudge bar thingy on this one too and lack of chrome which is something I’d like to head towards sometime soon.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings! Back to Jonas and his experience of how off-roaders are viewed in his rather extreme part of the world. Here’s what he said:
I recently bought a Mitsubishi Pajero 2.8 TD long version. Its blue, and in fact it looks very similar to yours, just longer. It has 33″ tiers, which is fine for travelling in the summer all around Iceland (also the mountains, the middle part of the country). However, its not enough for safari tours in snow on the claciers during winter time. For that they jeep guys here have 35, 36, 38, 44 and all up to 49″ tiers. They dont really call my Pajero a jeep, its only 33″ tiers
