New here, and newb to 4x4.
I have wanted to start 4wding my whole life, but never had the money to do it.
I found an NL Pajero 2000 3.5L being sold, lowballed my offer something shocking and the fella accepted.
He thought the car was toasted... it costed me $600 total to fix it, and $400 total for general extra mods and "didn't need to be done" replacements to be safe.
In total, I picked my bad boy up for $2500, with 6 months rego.
Since, I have explored the North East Vic High Country every weekend, and LOVING it!
