    Standard Issue

    As always, the plan was to keep it standard – and as always, it was doomed from the start. So when a fatal fault on Ben Langley’s Shogun presented an opportunity, the lure of the spanners was all too strong.

    A Better Kind Of Bling

    By far the majority of modern double-cabs come out of the factory blinged up to the nines. Ian James’ L200 dates from a time when Mitsubishi had already figured out that building lifestyle trucks was good for business – but despite having only a modest level of eye candy about...

    Keep On Trucking

    When you prep trucks for a living, you’re used to working quickly and efficiently. But even for one of the country’s leading pick-up specialists, being given a ten-day deadline in which to complete an entire build meant it was time for all leave to be cancelled.

    Black and White

    It’s hard to know what’s going through a car manufacturer’s mind when it comes up with something called a ‘Black Edition’ and it’s painted white. Still, the contradictory paint scheme on Dean Jones’ Mitsubishi L200 means it looks all the better for the mods he’s made – and there’s no...

    You Only Live Twice

    After 95,000 miles as a farmer’s bale-carrier, the average pick-up might be forgiven for thinking it’s earned the right to a quiet retirement. For Steve’s Emmett’s L200, however, the day it passed on to its second owner was when life really began.

    Family Fortunes

    For Marc Rees, green laning is the perfect way of spending quality time with his son. When mum and sis are away playing with ponies, what better way to make the most of a Sunday than to jump aboard the family toy and explore the countryside? And as for that...

    The Future's Orange

    Paul Longden painted his Mitsubishi L200 orange so it would stand out from the crowd. Obviously he’d decided that a 14” bobtail job, suspension and body lifts, hardcore bumpers and a set of wheelarches you can see from space weren’t doing that already…

    You Make Your Own Luck

    Jonty Beales reckons he’s had the luck of the devil while building his Shogun. There’s a lot of reasons for that – the main one being that when he made such a left-field choice for the  only 4x4 he’s ever prepped, he was boldly going where few have dared to venture.

    25 Years Young

    Andy Allen’s Pajero spent most of its first quarter-century as a standard three-door diesel. But then he started turning it into a sorted machine for playdays and green laning – and now it’s set fair for its second.

    The Shock of the Old ♦ Group Test: Mitsubishi Shogun vs Toyota Land Cruiser ♦

    In a world of soft-roaders and 4x4s that claim to be at home in the city, it’s a shock to come across a couple of real old-fashioned off-road family trucks. But the Mitsubishi Shogun and Toyota Land Cruiser are exactly that.

    Building a truck for long-distance off-road work is a big job. Wiring it up to be a state-of-the-art mobile filming unit is bigger still. Doing both? Well, that’s enormous. Especially when you’re given all of ten days in which to get it done...

    You hear a lot about the blinged-up versions of Mitsubishi’s legendary L200 pick-up. Ian James’ 4Life is less chrome-clad than some – but it’s way less standard, having been prepped to live up to its name both at work and at play.

    The Mitsubishi Shogun has had a bit of a patchy history in Britain. Since arriving in 1982, it’s become a smash-hit off-roader, then a byword for lavish glitz, then a forgotten 4x4 supposedly left behind by the rush to soft-roaders.

    Labour of Love

    Chancing on a Mitsubishi Delica certainly wasn’t part of Mark Openshaw’s original plan. But two years later, not only has he taken it on as part of his everyday life, he’s slogged away at turning it into a genuinely impressive off-roader. Think Delicas aren’t really off-roaders? Think again…
