    what doi you use for Gen 2.5 Tranny OIL

    Kinda. Trans pan is leaking. Getting a new filter and gasket with a timing belt job. Mechanic says all the "official" docs spec DexII. I wanted to confirm why I'm running SP-III before making that call.

    Mitsubishi Montero Dash, Console, and Interior LED Bulb Replacement, Gen 2.5

    Before you go the alarm removal route and risk further electrical system changes (adding complexity and potential tertiary faults to your no start situation), bypass the alarm. This is how those of us without key fobs or fictional valet switches do it... Disconnect the battery. Insert key...

    The "Az Crew" Thread

    Not a day goes by I don't think about it. Rocinante was so much more fun to drive than Fezzik. They really were sporty little trucks. If I ever find myself thinking about [ actually being in a position to begin shopping for ] an old MG or Alfa, I'd really have to consider a gen 1 shortie. Little...

    When Mitsubishi abandoned you, you purchased......................

    That's just the thing, dude. Right now, Tesla's the only one with a high performance EV. Everyone else is doing the hybrid thing (at least, when fuel prices increase). 10 years from now, when US fuel prices normalize with the rest of the world, and most manufacturers only offer $100k EVs, who do...

    When Mitsubishi abandoned you, you purchased......................

    Yeah. I know. Which is to say they decided not to drop a bajillion dollars into retooling to sell a couple thousand $40k SUVs in a market where the most vocal minority - with no grasp of their truly progressive thinking - had likely never actually bought a new Mitsubishi. I've been a DSMer...

    The "Az Crew" Thread

    Checking in. Can't roll this weekend, but am down for January. I can also highly recommend Auto Air & Electric just east of I17 on Bell. Across from Midway Nissan, behind Burger Mania. Mike runs the joint and has worked on my GVR4, diagnosed my blown oil pressure bypass on Rocínante, and has...

    When Mitsubishi abandoned you, you purchased......................

    Until the chicken tax is revealed, forcing the Big 3 to actually compete, the only way we're getting a Mitsubishi 4WD is if they retool Normal for truck production - which goes against their mission. Mitsubishi isn't going anywhere. The lack of product offering in the US is closet fascism...

    DRAM 2, Dirt Roads Across Maine.

    I still remember reading the first one last winter, sitting in my desk in a Scottsdale data center. That was an epic way to spend a quiet, solo night shift. If I ever end up in Maine, or behind the wheel of an old, domestic 4WD van, you will have played a role, sir. Kudos.

    Joinin' the Montero Club with a Gen 2.5

    Bought my truck in March with a hole in the steering wheel near the spoke on the right side, and a craptacular toggle in the same spot at your horn button. There were cut wires in the steering wheel hole, and the toggle ran to the horn fuse. Disabled both but want to fix the horn. SRS light is...

    DRAM 2, Dirt Roads Across Maine.

    It's 54°F and "sunny" here in Scottsdale, AZ, at 0420hrs, but I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this adventure on a quiet night shift in a data center. Much as I love the desert SW, there's just something about the North Woods that calls to me. Hope to make it out there one day. And have an...

    What I really like about Montero

    I walked into a Jeep-Eagle dealership in 1996 to order a 97 Wrangler. Drove home in a 97 Eagle Talon. 14 years and 210,000 miles later, I found myself itching to play in the dirt. Started pursuing rally. Bought my first Galant VR4. Sold my Talon and bought my second Galant VR4. In 2012, I got...

    Journey to Overland HQ

    Very nice. I've been meaning to check that one out for a while. Heard the drive in can be tedious at times, with long, washboard straights. Looks like the truck got a dip too!

    Journey to Overland HQ

    I just put 2&2 together. You're the Troy who drove Chazz's Fozzie on the Mojave? Hope all works out with the passport, mate. My wallet was nicked on the tube my first day in London, summer of 2012. Didn't have my passport with me, but still carry the velcro, Guinness wallet I bought on the...
