    Why to- not be complacent while working on you rig.

    The montero needed a new rear U-joint and I was in the mood to replace it today. So I did what any intelligent person would do and jumped in, started it up, put it in 4lolc, pulled the parking brake, put it in park, and turned it off. Figured since I wouldn't be under it long that I wouldn't...

    Tire pressure on skinnys? 33/10.50/15 Balance beads?

    Just installed some new 33 10.5 15 BFG KM2s on my rig and I was wondering what the general consensus was on road and off road air pressure with a light to medium load. I also went with the balance beads to see if they actually work. Took it up to 70 with no vibrations. What do you guys think of...

    Manual hubs=light flash

    A couple months ago I installed manual hubs in my 95 Montero LS. I was just wondering if it is common to have the 4x4 indicator light flash when putting a load on the engine. The 4x4 solenoids are new. I figure it is just the norm that the system detects that the front is not moving anymore or...

    Jerry can holder/ mount options

    I recently acquired an old 5L jerry can and need a mount and a place to mount it to the Montero. Preferably on the outside of course. Any ideas? If you can add a picture to the suggestion, it would help tremendously. I do have a roof rack, but I only have one jerry can and I don't really want to...

    In the market for a full size diesel truck

    I may be in the market for a full size diesel pick-up very soon. I really like the Duramax/ allison combination, but I know that dodge offers a power wagon that had a solid front axle that can be had with front and rear lockers. Cummings engines are great as well. Just not sure about their...

    Runs poorly on 93 octane

    You read it right!! I decided to treat my 95 Monty LS with premium and it got really mad at me. Hesitation, hiccups, and just angry at me! drained most of it to put in the G35 and filled up the Monty with 87 octane. Ran just fine afterward. Darnest things sometimes.... Any thoughts on this?

    In need of a tow hitch? READ THIS!

    About a year ago I was at a local farm store and found a tractor tow hitch that looked like it would fit the Montero (gen 2). I got the bolt pattern off of it and compared it to the bolt pattern on the Monty and it looked like it would fit. I bought it and bolted it right in!! I've pulled...

    Just got an air locker and need info!

    Okay, found a 1994 SR that still had the rear locker with air pump and switch. Took the rear out, grabbed the pump, pulled the switch. I found it in a pick and pull when I was looking for a condenser fan. (Switched that out already) The price was amazing so I didn't hesitate. Now I need to know...
