Very nice Pajero!
Very nice Pajero!
Not sure how tall you are but I'm short enough that I can easily sleep in back of my 96SR so I built a folding bed platform to allow me to do just that. It may be worth considering for your build up.
Here's what mine looks like in back....
So far I've had it on some pretty rough trails w/out a hiccup.

I need a new rig too. Retiring the Toyota. Don't know if a Pajero is the thing for me. Are the turbo diesels anygood? I refuse to go petrol for expo rigs.
New goodies for the wagon, A complete front end rebuild less bushings. LOL might order a new set up since I am in there. not sure though. either way tight steering will be nice.
And what is to be my underbody air tank. needs a clean up, but for free you cant complain. with a body lift in place it will sit jsut above the bottom of the frame. so nothing should hit it. its made by cat, so it should be tough regardless.
Today was a good day, still collecting parts right now. but that is still good.
Got a deep cycle battery, 105amp hour heavy duty
And an isolator to control the dual battery setup:
Relay, this part was free!! thanks to the electricians at work for this one, it is to control the pressure switch that will run my air compressor and tank setup. I have a spare air con pump, not sure if I want a belt driven pump that can really crank out the cfm's or run an arb electric compressor.
And the engine goodies, top end gasket kit for the diesel engine. cant wait for this part!!!
What type of roof top tent is that? Also what type of awning are you using?
BTW the rig looks great.
