Gen 2 Montero / Re: Transfer Case Issues
« on: July 07, 2019, 11:00:14 PM »
Was out driving today and happened to try putting the T-Case into 4wd. When it is in any of the 4wd modes the T-Case slips. Everything is fine in 2wd, but in 4wd I get little to no power to the ground...  Going to investigate some more hopefully tomorrow. Any thoughts on where I should start.

What year is your Montero?

The video is for Gen 3- are the seat mechanisms the same?

Google "montero bed" and it pulls right up.

For Sale Automotive / complete locking 9.5" axle for leaf sprung gen 1
« on: December 28, 2018, 09:57:08 PM »
I have access to a complete hub to hub locking disc brake rear axle out of a 99 Sport limited with the 3.5 engine and 4.63 gearing, also includes dash switch and air pump. These are quite rare and are an easy swap to upgrade your leaf sprung first gen. Asking $500 plus shipping.

I have had the OME complete setup on our 98 for three years, it will get you wherever you as the driver will dare to take your rig. The progressive rate of the rear springs allows you to carry more weight without sag and remove the rear sway bar for better wheel/axle travel.

General Discussion / Re: Aussie locker ?
« on: July 14, 2018, 11:29:45 PM »
I really like the Aussie locker. I had to put in a sr front diff. 4.63. So I still have 4.9 front and rear with factory rear air locker. 9 rear. Yes 9 rear factory locker. 4.875 sitting in my garage.

I'm sort of still kicking myself for not grabbing the 4.90 axles from a 93 SR a few years back, but I would have lost ABS and needed a different flange on the drive line for the rear to bolt up.

Gen 2 Montero / Re: How are you dudes locking up your spare tires?
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:27:54 PM »
I recently lost the lug key to the factory wheels on our 96, went down to the parts store and for $12 I bought a kit that will remove more than 90% of the locking lug nuts on the market, kind of scary to think it's that easy for thieves.

General Discussion / Re: Montero with 33s towing 4k pounds?
« on: March 02, 2018, 09:19:57 AM »
Ugh, threads like this make me cringe when people ask how unsafe they can be but stay "legal", usually when they post a question about towing they have little to no prior experience with towing and definitely shouldn't try towing at the limit for their first experience. I would reach out to your friends and ask if you can borrow a truck and not worry as much about having your rig impounded, hurting your rig, or even killing someone. If you have absolutely have no other options (not likely if you really try) then at least throw some stock size tires on there so your engine/trans/brakes are not being worked so hard. Sorry if I sound a bit harsh, but I grew up around trailers and have towed a lot including across the country, I have seen the end result of others not towing safely and a dead child is something you never forget. So please tow correctly and keep others safe.

For Sale Automotive / Re: Unloading a bunch of parts

I can do pictures, I don't have the receipts from the initial work done. All I can tell you is they were taken in to get a full valve job, resurfaced, and cleaned. Like I also said, they come with brand new head bolts and brand new head gaskets, which are all dealer purchased, genuine Mitsu parts. Send me your email or phone number and I will get you pictures tomorrow.

Sent you my email address on Thursday, let me know if you got it.

Looks like prices could range, $50 to $65 for shipping. We can do $50 if you want to go for it. Let me know.

Can you post a few pictures? And is there an invoice/itemized bill or work order from the shop showing everything they did?

I assume you mean the 3.5 heads? Yes. Freshly rebuilt heads that have never been torqued down to a block.

Can you see what shipping would be to 84010? Thinking I may need these sooner than later for the 96.

Do those heads have new valve seals/guides?

Gen 1 Montero / Re: Rear door table
« on: January 22, 2018, 10:07:48 PM »
Easiest part now. Took some wire rope, used ferrules to make loops, and then attached the ends. An extra hole in the corner of the table, and on the eyelet. Done.

A couple of decals because you know that improves the flavor of anything made on it.

Great concept but looks a bit flimsy, have you used a stove or cutting board on it yet?
