Alcan 5000 Prep: Lights, Heat, and Recovery Gear

Mitsubishi Pajero Diesel

We’ve made a second appearance on Tim Esterdahl’s Pickup Truck + SUV Talk, this time to further discuss preparing our our 1991 Mitsubishi Pajero for the 2020 Alcan 5000.

Hey, what could go wrong? (We hope nothing!) We’re taking the Terra Tractor, our 4D56 turbo-diesel-powered ’91 Mitsubishi Pajero on the 2020 Alcan 5000 winter rally. This event will take us all the way from Kirkland, WA to Tuktoyaktuk in the Northwest Territories (along with 40+ other teams), and finishing some 5,120+ miles later this February. And yes, I said February in the Arctic. In this vid, we talk about more preparations. This includes lights, fuel, recovery gear, and more.
