For Sale Automotive / Big Tires and Bling Rims For Sale
« on: January 18, 2019, 07:02:46 PM »
I have changed my mind about using this set of rims and tires, in favor of more conservative SR rims on Pearl. For Montero, at least equivalent of 2" lift needed to steer. For Max, 3" lift on Gen 2 like Pearl, uncertain for Gen 1.

Tires are Firestone Destination MT, 315/75-16
Rims are Helo 750, 16x10

I had the centers of the rims milled to fit over the Montero & Mighty Max 4wd hub.

Asking $1,000, no shipping at this time

This is Monty. My wife and I purchased this, our first financed car, in the spring of 1995. We were setting up to camp for our second wedding anniversary: went 1,500 miles from Redlands, CA to Flagstaff to Grand Canyon to Sedona to Pheonix, AZ, and back over Chiriaco Summit on the 10 to Redlands. The Montero avaraged 15 mpg for the trip, including trailer. We had to stop in Sedona to let the Jeep Tour Group go passed...we were going up the Staircase with a trailer...Jeep leader just frowned at us on little 215/75s next to his rumbly 350 CJ8....we had 4lo and locked the hubs, but did the trail with open axles and a trailer!

About 10 miles from home, the exhaust manifold melted due to a clogged pre-cat. The paint above crisped a bit. Replacements were still available for $600, more than our monthly income at the time. Retired Monty after 3 years, 60K miles. First of 24 Mitsubishi we've had.

Montero Ranch in the beginning. :)

Life is moving on, kids in college out of state, and will literally be selling the Ranch in order to live more freely.

I have lots of free things, if only folks would visit. I have five vehicles for sale, and a 6th I may consider, as I save for a down on a new,.new truck to haul my camper trailer around.

I apologize now for the time it's taking me to respond to otherwise past, simple things, like pulling parts and getting shipping estimates together...

Come shop The Ranch, bring a trailer or box truck. Purchase or get free stuff. Pet live sheep and goats.

Parts cars include: 1980 D50, 1989 Montero LBW, 2002 Montero Sport
For sale vehicles include: 1983 Montero #277, 1989 Power Ram 50 extended cab, 1994 Hyundai Excel, 1980 Dodge 1.5 ton 4x4 service truck, 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab 2wd
The surprise, possible sale vehicle: Pearl, my turbo Mighty Max with everything I've collected for her... :(

Overwhelmed, understaffed, home most weekends

Don't know what I'll be doing yet with my new ride. She has a 302 and AWD, mileage will not be great. A rumbly muffler will be a must.

What else? Stock or mod?

I have a few parts cars at Montero Ranch that need to have things scavenged from. Unlike Pick-n-Pull and other DIY yards, I will not charge a $2 entry fee.

Bring your tools, trailer, and kids. Your tools can be used to remove parts. Your trailer can be used to haul things away. Your kids can pet the sheep, goats, and chickens, possibly even our barn kitties. If you're lucky, you can catch the pigeons and take them, too.

If the child is older and wants to drive around a pasture, you could let them operate my / win....we have grass to mow on about 6 acres!

Parts cars include: 88 Mighty Max 4wd, 89 Montero LS, 02 Sport
For sale trucks and Monteros are described in the For Sale Section of the Forum

I have the following hard parts gathering cobwebs:

1. (2) two core 3.0L shortblocks: one with 228K original miles, the other a Tarco rebuild that dude left the oil pan off of. Both might have a good crank and various reusable bits
2. Several hoods, front and side doors, various fenders, 2 rear doors
3. Non-lockup V6 auto trans
4. Shake your stick, see what I might have

Starion parts include:

General Discussion / Bumper Manufacturer ID??
« on: March 17, 2018, 10:16:05 PM »

Trying to identify a plate construction winch bumper. I'll have better pics later, but this is where I started searching from...similar in appearance to CSI products and Rough Country, but dissimilar almost as much.

Any clues? No maker marks I found inside or out. Nice welded construction, doesn't appear custom.

Just imagine being Emily, newest Mitsubishi owner at the Montero Ranch.

Imagine Scar getting lots of replacement parts and someone eager to wrench and learn.

Then imagine using the back pasture of the Ranch grounds for the sole purpose of doing brodies and 4w drifts, blazing the 2.6L rpms and chasing a herd of sheep! The pasture is about 650 feet x 150 feet.

Change in directions for me, away from a roof-top tent. My purpose is to make the next California abode for myself after the house and ranch bits are sold. I had been thinking of a roof-top tent, like an Autohome. Despite planning for a significant expense, economics win out often.

2. Has title, too!
3. And, for California, a permanent trailer identification!

All the wood, siding, and roof are in excellent condition. All the canvas needs to be replaced, but I'll be able to research insulated fabrics for winter-ish camping as part of this restomod.

Second things first, going to lift and cut for my 38" tires, ready little Jake for off-highway camping behind Pearl.
