Build Threads / The Half Monti
« on: October 25, 2018, 09:03:30 AM »
No more lurking. Time to make it official. Spent the last several years looking for a good candidate semi-locally. I did get sidetracked with several V6 Mighty Max's, but I vaguely remember these being much easier to find not too long ago.



I ended up purchasing a high mileage 1989 Montero SWB V6 locally out of Reno. It has what appears to be a bad head gasket, destroyed muffler and its fair share of leaks, but all in all it the body and frame are in better than average condition. Notable missing features: No LSD, No bouncy seats. :(  I do have a 5 speed though.



The day I picked her up. All tucked away in a garage for 5 years.



Finally pushed her out and onto the dolly. Doesnt look too bad for being loaded with dust and spider webs.

General Discussion / 2001 Montero Limited Going to the crusher
« on: January 02, 2018, 10:31:27 AM »
Is there anything of importance that I should pull off this truck before sending it to the crusher? I have already pulled the motor for another project. I thought about the rear hybrid lsd but Iím told itís the wrong spline. Also was goin to pull the front brakes and rotors but apparently they arenít an easy for for my mighty maxís

Anything Iím missing?

General Discussion / Can I have another???
« on: December 06, 2017, 01:10:44 PM »
The answer to that is yes. Iíve actually been trying to hold out for a gen 1 2 door or a gen 2.5 monti but this 91 Dodge Power Ram 50 4x4 V6 popped up too close to home. Didnít help that she came with most all of the rare options (bucket seats, center console, clock, tach cluster, cloth door cards, sliding rear window, blue paint, Limited slip, etc. Not to mention she has been well preserved.

Now Iíve got to figure out what I want to do next with that 6G72 powerplant. Another 3.8 MIVEC build, or a Twin Turbo project...?

Build Threads / Anyone into Mighty Max Builds here?

Just joined here but looks like most threads circle around Monteros. Anyone here interested in Mighty Max builds? Have a 1990 that I've been wrenching on.
