Looking good.

As I've driven Scar around with the 35" muds, I think the strongest candidate for Pearl will be these tires that are owned already. This was the initial plan from the start, so the 5.29 gears will be the most beneficial. For the type of wheeling that I expect, I won't be breaking CVs, unless I'm spooled up. However, will be getting the 100mm pieces for cheap insurance.

Options, options, and opinions from smart and experienced fellows.

None of this happens immediately.

Did just that today. I plan to reuse most of the suspension from the Sport. Until I was undoing the cross-member mount, had presumed the front axle to be CAD....happily, not!

Depending on which tires and rims I do eventually use, I've already traded away the 4.9 rear gear set to LT. So, I'd likely stick with 4.625 for 33" or 5.29 for 35". Also, I have one of the unicorn Detroits for the rear and regret not answering Toasty's add for the front Detroit that Earnest now has. At least Montero Ranch contributed the front differential mount to him.

My truck is Starion-fortified, and goes Pssht! No V6 for me, but turbo 4G54.

If you're doing like me, I'm going through this very repair on Pearl right now. The suddenness of this learning experience is frightening? Last Sunday evening, after driving 3 hours home, I met with my friend Brykelle. Together, we dropped the 3.909 front pumpkin she needed for her Max. So, the 'getting that sucker' out included several failed attempts at removing the left side CV joint. I just repeated the same operation today, dropping all the front suspension on a Montero Sport parts car...unable to separate the lower left ball joint...took everything apart.

Pearl on Sunday night, about 11:35:



Sport this afternoon:



Two teardowns in 6 days, quite a bit of activity for me.

Once you have unbloted the lower ball joint bolts and separated the knuckle from the LCA and UCA, the CV slides out of the hub. Now, you can leave in place or pull.

Seats are not compatible. In disgust, I've left the Sport seats out for two years. The cats like them

Front diff is 4.9, but I'll be using a V6 Montero Gen 1 diff with the Aussie locker from L.T. I've not settled on a gear ratio.

Finishing what I can scavenge from the 2002 Sport parts car before I rehome it.

What else can I use on Pearl?

1. Grabbed UCAs just now. CVs, too?
2. Steering parts like box, tie rods, idler?
3. Fuel tank? Has 3 gallons more capacity, and a built in FI fuel pump....bonus over noisy, no longer functioning external pump on truck now.
4. What else?

Just swap your ARB into a 92/93 Gen 2 rear axle, 9" ring gear...

This was the OE piece in my Raider, had been the AM/FM radio and a tray.
