Gen 2 Montero / gen3 springs on a gen2.5
« on: April 26, 2019, 10:01:03 PM »
Ok quick question guys... I was gifted a pair of springs from a gen3 (OME2917 with 1.5" lift), but I have gen2.5 they look closely matching (albeit much stouter), but can't tell until I remove the old springs, but before I go through the effort does anyone know if they will fit a gen2.5?  Thanks guys!

Gen 2 Montero / Re: New front, and rear bumpers available now.
« on: February 18, 2019, 01:53:52 PM »
I don't make them I just stumbled upon them while going down the rabbit hole last night... They seem reasonably priced, but shipping from GA would be a killer, and the pic of the front bumper is on a gen1 so I'm curious if there's a specific one for the gen2's they just don't show a picture of it...

Wow Shovel that's awesome thanks!  Ive been eyeing those on the Chinese version of the Monteros, and wondering how to get one.  Since I don't (nor ever had) a facebook account i would have never known this... your the best!...   just one question.  Are those original Mitsubishi part #'s?  Where would one acquire this unit by these part #'s?  As soon as I know... I'm ordering one.

great, thanks guys... this is 98 sr I just picked up... the light worked the other day, so i thought it may have been a problem in the rear end... good to know in fact i might just take the other bulb out so its not shinning me in the face... unless the "rear" wheel lights indicate something specific.

cool thanks I'll try that... all the other monteros I've ever had these lights never came on, must've just been a coincidence that they were all burnt out or something.

Gen 2 Montero / 9.00r16 tires
« on: April 23, 2018, 07:16:42 AM »
anyone running 36" tires that's what 9.00r16's equal.   I currently run 255 85 16's equivalent to 33x10 which I love but expensive... and the 9.00r16's are cheap on eBay.

thanks toasty...knowing that it can be done, and has been done gives me confidence to pursue this...and if it's relatively straight forward...I'll certainly keep the post going for all you to drool over... however i drive my rig almost daily so it might be somewhat slow process... cheers

Gen 2 Montero / gen2 PTO and bellhousing
« on: January 28, 2018, 09:13:06 PM »
     Ok...so some scouring the web, and I found mention of a factory PTO for the gen2's V5MT2 transmission which I have...I didn't find a lot, but defiantly found reference to it...I found more about the gen1's.   So I took a glance under my rig, and sure enough there's a 6 hole plate on the passenger side of the the transfer case for said PTO...not only that there's access holes in the plastic underneath to allow the PTO shaft to go to the front.  Anyone have info on this? It would be sweet to put one in... And does anyone know if our transmission "gear box" goes by any other designation other than V5MT2?...possibly other Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep applications...the reason why im asking is that theres possibly a PTO that'll fit a different application including ours.

Oh and how 'bout the bell housing on the V5MT2?  Is there any other bell housings that'll fit? preferably toyota/Chevy/or possibly ford?...I know this sounds like an odd question, but I'm searching for a "semi" easy solution to mate a OM617 mercedes diesel to the V5MT2...I'm no stranger to swaps...Ive done several mercedes to toyota's.  Often time's transmission "gear boxes" are used in many different make vehicles under different designations, and if its as easy as swapping bellhousings for something that an adapter plate is already exists for...the easy peasy...just putting the feelers out...you guys have been great so far.  thanks
