    Re: Heating a tent when off the grid camping

    When my kids were small we had what were called beanie suits made up. Basically like a padded sleeping bag with arms and legs and a hood.

    Re: Roof Racks - Dynamic and Static Loads

    I think we got a little spoilt by older vehicles that could take a bit of weight up top. My old Paj had the roof sill that the roof rack sat on. No way would I be comfortable doing this in the Gen 3.

  9. Re: Pajero - Overland and repair - Build log nicknamed Poncho

    My apologies, bit late in mentioning this. The rear wheel arches have some inset bolt holes. We used these to make up brackets and mounted the aux batteries on them, one either side. Worked very well.
