JDM Gen 2 Profile - V20-V40
« on: May 15, 2018, 06:36:24 PM »
I've recently found myself at the helm of my own blog, JDM Journeys, with some encouragement along the way from some giants in our little community.

Today I published a profile of the JDM gen2's you guys can now officially import into the states. There seems to be a few more available locally now for some of you, and others may be considering the import route, so here is a quick Cliff's Notes on what you can get in a JDM market Pajero up to 1993 (which makes it 25 years old).

I like it but not to be too picky it needed to be edited before going to print. One example, a Gen1 shorty has a 92.5 wheelbase, a Gen2 shorty is 95.3, you used the shorter number for the Gen2.
The LWB has a similar difference between generations.
It might only be me who sees these things so maybe I should stay out.

I measured it myself but obviously I flipped the 5 and 2 and meant 95.2 inches. Thanks for the heads up. I shall correct.

Really if that's the only error you can find then I'm ahead of 99% of other online articles from any genre.

There are little details but you provided a very nice presentation. Being this is written for the States as time goes by there are more details on the engines but with the time cap involved it is not important yet.

I kind of wish I could just scrounge up many of the JDM parts we never saw so they could be retrofitted. Rear heater would be nice to have.

Thanks guys. As anyone who writes a blog knows, without feedback you feel like you're talking to yourself sometimes. Nice to see a few folks tuning in. I'm on a once a week or so schedule right now, as long as I've got something to write. We'll see what inspirations I can draw from...

Very good information and well written. Id be very interested  in swapping my 3.5 for that diesel and 5-speed. I'm not interested in a rhd though. Is there any information or companies catering to that?

Not in my sphere of contacts but who knows? I have seen some online references to the 4m41 by itself as going for 5k just for the engine so I can't imagine it would make sense from an economic standpoint. Almost better to buy a full truck?

 Diesels basically swap themselves.

Well Di diesels directly inject themselves at least...
