Doctor Saab, I am no whiz kid with offroading knowledge, but I have a feeling that most serious offroaders would tell you that a Pajero is a comfortable, unreliable SUV, at least in Pakistan. The weird part is that Pajeros get superb reviews abroad. That is usually because they come with petrol engines as standard versus the aged diesels in Pakistan.
If you want to seriously offroad, roll with the guys who contribute to these forums, your best bet would be a LC, Defender, Nissan Patrol, Jeep or Willys. All these 4x4s were made to be abused
