Extended tow tongue / ball mount
« on: November 15, 2015, 01:34:01 PM »
After checking a Mark IV with front box behind our Pajero, we need a few extra cm to be able to fully open the rear door. ( We want to avoid the angle park solution if possible because we dont want to be limited in an emergency from accessing the contents in the back)

We have the standard Mitsubishi hitch, and wondered about the extended options available from Hayman Reece and or Mr Hitches ( which appear to be cheaper)

Comments ?
Travelling as often as we can in our Mark IV Murranji and NW Pajero

I use an extended hitch from TJM behind my Paj with no problems. Reduces the max towable trailer weight to 2.5T but no problems with a Tvan and lets me open the rear door with the Mk3.
