    Correct. Although some reckon it's not the best doing 4H all the time, as over time the viscous coupling in the transfer case can get worn prematurely - yet to hear of someone who had this issue, but it could happen I guess.

    That being said, if you do, probably need to change the drive train oils more regularly that the prescribed 60k km.

    Brilliant! Thanks.
    Iíll do a tank with just 2H. Then 4H on the next tank. Will see how it performs in my regular day to day drive.

    It does not make a huge impact on fuel consumption.

    You're right. It doesn't. But the drive quality is better on 2H for me. After driving for a week in 2H then 4H last week, I got 630km for the tank and 615km respectively. But the 4H to me was much louder in the cabin and more sluggish in pull aways.

    The only difference I could ever pick up when driving in 4H was that the steering was slightly heavier/stiffer due to the front wheels being driven. I always left mine in 2H so that I had a more comfortable spot for my leg/knee to rest in.

    Guys, this week I became the proud owner of a 1999 Blister fender, 3.5. Yesterday we took "Flint" on his first field survey and he handled the sandy terrain and the heat very well. Super impressed with his performance.

    This is my first Pajero so all constructive advice will be much appreciated. So too any information about parts availability and all the other important things I might not be thinking of.

    I fully agree with Dirk. My 2nd Pajero was the same as you now have.
    The only "unique" maintenance is the cam belt and sparkplug change every 90k km. This is quite a big job, but a must and thus well worth the effort.
    Those lovely four cam engines have one Achilles heel; they are prone to develop noisy "tappets". The hydraulic lifters sometimes can get noisy. This was almost always due to less than perfect oil or less than perfect oil change intervals. The general consensus at the time was to use Caltex Delo oil as it has superior cleaning properties. I also preferred to run my engine with the oil level about 5mm above the full mark as it seemed to keep the "tappets" quiet.
    There was an option to have the lifters replaced with ones that were not prone to get noisy. If you don't notice any noisy tappets, then maybe your engine has those improved lifters.
    You have what some consider to be the best Pajero model ever. Sure they became more refined and modern over the years, but the Blister is the last of the more robust models.
    Enjoy.
