    Gen 3... 265 vs 285. Help me decide

    I don't know, if you can afford to regear, I really like 255s on my Gen 3 with 4.9 gears. I had 31.5 tires before and the added height really helps wheeling, at least for what I've been doing with mine. The departure angle and break over angle increases are very noticeable. It also looks...

    Good for you for helping out. I wish the guy would have left the truck in the middle of the trail. **** those jeep tours.

    Hang in there, I'd hate to see you sell it. I want to see the finished product.

    "Yoshi" - 2005 Limited Build & Adventure Thread

    A few thoughts that seem most likely to me if the issue was not present before the build.... 1-The rings are the issue. You are adding a variable that cannot be accounted for and it would be easy for a small discrepancy to be present (ie they are not square/round). 2-you have a dragging...

    3rd Gen 4.9 Gear Part Num?

    Search the part numbers for 01 and 02 xls models. They all had 4.9s. Any other Monteros, including the 01 and 02 limiteds, all had 4.30s. Look on eBay. I found mine within a few weeks of looking.

    Looks really good!!! Seems about par for the course at most repair places. I’ve resolved myself I will always need to fix something anytime i take a vehicle in. It’s a nice surprise when you don’t, ha.

    Any gen 3 aftermarket shifters?

    Try eBay or carpart. I’ve had lots of success with eBay for used parts.

    Looks good. Where did you order the diff shim kits from?

    Old Junk vs. New Junk?

    So your choices are spend a 1000 bucks and a weekend fixing your current ride, or spend 40k on a new truck? Unless you have 40k burning a hole in your pocket that you have no other use for it, it would seem like a simple choice.

    Self inflating mattress for rtt

    I would go with the Duo, but it seems like its going to be a lot smaller at 77x52. We have a family of four in the tent and cannot give up any width.

    Self inflating mattress for rtt

    I have a smitty built xl and need a better mattress. Has anyone found a decent self inflating pad that is roughly (92x75in)? I'd like to eliminate the foam pad entirely. It seems everything is more of a traditional air mattress or the wrong size. Having 2 side by side would work fine as...

    Sweet build. I went with Arbs and had an internal air leak right off the bat that needed a new seal. I wish I went with Harrop, although the twin air compressor has been so nice. It has made up for tearing the diff apart twice and so far I have not had any other issues. Lol knock on wood.
