Good day fellow members,

I recently upgraded from my 2005 Colt Rodeo (1UZ V8) to a 2010 Pajero Sport 3.2DiD GLX. The car is just in another league. It doesn't go where the Colt went (or as easy at least) but seeing that I've modded the Colt quite a lot, it's understandable.
I've got a few small problems that need to be sorted with the PS and a lot of upgrades in mind so I will pick your brains from time to time.
So, here goes:

1. Name: Henk Bekker

2. Birthday and Age: 6 October 1979

3. Town & Country Of Residence: Beaufort West

4. Home Language: Afrikaans

5. Occupation/Business: Business owner / Mechanic

6. Family Status: Divorced, remarried, 3 kids with first wife and one with current, ages 16,12,10,4

7. Membership Of Other 4X4 Clubs & Forums: Mitsubishi Owner's facebook group,,, Kamp-mal facebook group, Vatikaki offroad facebook group, Western Cape 4x4 and difflock facebook group.

8. Current 4x4: 2010 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 3.2DiD GLX, silver

9. Current Modifications: Maxxis 980 A/T tyres

10. Modifications On The Wish List: Offroad bumper, front and rear with enough protection underneath for all the important bits, Rocksliders (current running boards are very low), 50mm suspension lift, Bigger mud terrain tyres (285/75R17" maybe?), decat, EGR delete, big bore exhaust, software upgrade, Satnav/media unit and who know's what other ideas I might stumble upon.

11. Vehicle(s) On The Wish List: Sold my 330d and replaced it with a Handsak (i10) for the wife but I really miss my 330d so who knows, maybe again one day. Ultimately my dream is a R34 V-Spec Skyline (hey! i'm allowed to dream, aren't I)

12. Previous 4x4s: SVM 3000 jeep, Nissan hardbody 3000i double cab, Colt rodeo 2.8Td (which was replaced with a 1UZ)

13. Last 3 Offroad Trips: Karoo National park, Camdebo National Park, sommer every obstacle I could find around town. (Colt was too thirsty for long trips)

14. Favorite Destination: I would have to say, I love the Karoo so the more time I can spend in the Karoo National Park, the better.

15. Other Hobbies: Love gadgets, computers and generally anything mechanical related

16. GPSr & Map Data Used: Garmin with T4A maps

17. Rate Your 4X4 & Overlanding Experience: Still on my to-do list

18. Photos Of Yourself & Your Vehicle:
This was Ou bees. Miss him quite a lot!
So there it is. Happy to meet y'all!!

Welcome here

We are a quiet bunch if friendly folk.

I am sure you will miss that gas gusler but give the big four pot diesel a chance to get under your skin and you will appreciate its attributes as well.
