    Default Arctic Pajero

    Spotted this at Arctic Trucks recently. Looks very cool methinks.

    These were taken earlier during the build phase:







    And the finished product:







    I have not driven it yet and only have the pics at this stage.

    Were the modifications only on the wheels and arches? What other kit did they add?

    I'll post more when I have the facts. Don't want to speculate.

    Knowing other convertions it's likely to be 35" tyres & rims, koni suspension, body lift, suspension lift, body work etc.

    I will make a mental note of that and look/listen for it specifically, when I have it.

    Those are CRAP looking wheel arches and rims.Looks like an afterthought.

    Without being nasty, that looks like a huge waste of money for the likely R 140 k that it cost.

    I really don't think it will have improved the offroad performance that much and it harldy even looks different.

    The 35 inch Hiluxes at least look like they've been lifted etc.

    Must be due to the fact that most of the Mitsus can fit 35s without modifications (almost)

    I dont know why but this one looks better. Maybe it is the tyres? Also the front wheel arch extension design seem to be different, arching up faster and in one piece?

    Anyway. This one I like and I am glad the Arctic are at least doing something on the Pajero's. For a long time it was really a struggle to get any custom fittings for the Pajero's but this seems to be a lot better in recent years

    Because it is - like most other accessories fitted to 4x4's today.

    Then again, I don't think people fit these accessories for looks but rather to be functional.

    I would love to know how this would change/improve the ride of the Pajero - on and off the road.

    The problem of the ones in the original post is definately the wheel arches!! They are fugly and come down too much not doing anything for the vehicles lines Look at the arches on this Gen4. They are more 'open' and fit more to the original design.

    This Gen 3 Arctic also look delicious.

    Will it do something off road? I am sure it will if properly lifted and different gearing put in place. Will it benefit an overland off roader? I dont think so, but it will benefit a trail rider. Still it does look cool if done properly I think?

    Those arches are not finished ... here are the right guys to speak to - http://www.brettakantar.is/

    PM me if you want Gunnar's e-mail. Unfortunately they cannot supply my SWB with arches.

    Isn't the whole idea behind an Artric truck to have high profile tyres....
