    Question Pajero underbody protection

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some advice on underbody protection for the Gen4 SWB Pajero.

    I could find a lot of resources on this forum for the Gen3 and even more so for the Gen2 but not much for my model.

    Can anyone recommend specific configuration options, suppliers and fitment centres for my model.

    Thanks

    Thanks - I dropped him a mail this morning already.

    I'll definitely see what he comes back with. Guys are welcome still to post replies on this post - maybe someone wishes to advise an alternative.

    So OK I got a quote from Lynx4x4. For the bashplate, transfer case protection plate and fitment they charge R6,450 inlc VAT.


    It's more than I expected.


    What is the recommendation from this forum? Is it too expensive? Is it worth it? Is it really going to provide that much better protection over the standard protection fitted?


    I don't know. Please give me some input.


    Thanks

    Lynx4x4 stuff is Excellent quality and is well worth the money. The plates that you are referring to from them is 200% better than the standard stuff, which is basically just dust covers. Not sure what they charge for fitment but I would do that part myself if I was you. Pretty easy stuff and will give you an idea of the difference in quality from the standard stuff.

    At least do the front bashplate first as the intercooler on the gen4 is pretty expensive to replace and will get damaged with the standard plate easily when doing rocky off road trail in anger.

    Cats - what do you need to install the front bash plate? Do you use the same bolts or must you buy stronger ones?

    Same bolts will work, no problem. You just need a spanner/socket and some strong arms/jack as the replacement parts is a bit more heavy than the tinfoil it replaces. It is also a bit uncomfortable to work under the car on flat ground, so if you have access to a lift grab it, but not undo-able.
