@ChrisCosta416 I saw your rig a few months ago on the 5 and LOVE it! I have always had a niggle to go buy one and I am in the mode now to where I am looking again. Any thoughts that could help me go either way?
First off, I just want to say that I am not knowledgeable nor an expert when it comes to car parts. So please bear with me.
Second, I don't know if this is the right thread to post this but I am looking forward to upgrade my stock 2003 montero limited suspension. I will be doing a bit of off roading (not extreme) next month.
My ideal look at the end of the day would be that my monty will look a bit taller (is 1.5" lift enough?) and it rides smoothly on normal paved roads.
Seeing all the builds that you guys have done so far sparked me to try! It would be much appreciated if any of you can help me find the right parts.
Kings definitely are the smoothest on and off-road. However I would recommend Biltstien and lovell combo since it sounds like you will mainly be driving on road. A lot of folks have had success with that combo.
hey Chris, great build and I'm glad you take and post a lot of photo documentation. Have you experienced brake fade when traveling down from the Sierras or Big Bear? I know there are better brake pads for our NP out there, but I haven't been able to find any stainless steel braided (coated) brake lines. Do you think there is a need? I see them for 1st and 2nd gen, but not our 3rd gens. Have you found any sets or jury rigged your own?
