    Pitchblack Rally Recce Raider Build

    Great stuff. Love the plodding pace. That's how I work too. And totally relate on the weather we've had here in the Mid-Atlantic. Very conducive to car projects. Not complaining at all if Winter wants to stay off somewhere else while we get stuff done.

    School Me on Rear Differentials - Gen 3 Montero

    Oh my goodness, I can't believe I'm about to try to do this. If I'm wrong please don't roast me Mr. Toasty sir, or turn me into anything unnatural. If the Mitsu LSD was simply a torsen-style LSD you'd be exactly right, but the "HYBRID" system that Mitsu used (and still uses on the Challengers...

    Driven Over Land - Short Film

    I really enjoyed following along as you posted pics of the trip to your IG. My boys were stoked to see the Gen 3 Monteros in the video. They're so used to seeing Toyotas and Jeeps in all the videos we watch that I think it was a shock to see their beloved Mitsubishi out there making dust. Made...

    2003+ Idle Relearn Procedure for 3.8L Montero

    The re-learn procedure is located on page 6-26 of the owner's manual under the heading "What to do if the engine speed becomes unstable after the battery is replaced." Everything idle-related on the 6G75 engine is logic-based, relying on sensor inputs and outputs to regulate engine rpm. It will...

    The War Rig build thread. '03 Montero Limited

    Man, I was really looking forward to the report of the trip you had planned out. Such a gut punch to have the engine seize up just a few miles into things after so much prep. What were you using for an air filter with the way your snorkel setup is built?

    I just noticed that your hitch tucks up much tighter than most I've seen, definitely higher than my Hidden Hitch. That U-Haul is a good one.

    2nd times a charm build thread

    I'm interested to know how you mounted your running board lights to the sliders (and curious as to why you put them underneath where they'll get smashed when the sliders are doing their thing). It looks like you just used zip ties, but did Rocky-Road supply any solution for mounting them with...

    Sierra Nevada Challenge 2018 *NOW with 20% more pictures!*

    Carnage indeed. But judging by the pictures I can see why people hazard it...beautiful spaces out there. Been looking forward to seeing you guys' pictures and videos, so thanks for sharing.

    Fuel economy and odd auto tranny behavior gen 3 montero

    To get a good bead on your mpg woes you'll need to check your fuel trims. You may be running rich, in which case you can then start chasing gremlins in the MFI system. Healthy fuel trim numbers should give you 16-19 mpgs.

    If you come through Virginia on the TAT and need anything (even just a beer or two) give me a shout. My '03 would love the company.
