    1988 Montero 2 door SAS


    So I want to share my build with you guys, it is a budget built and a work in progress

    It started as my daily a (still a daily) 2.6 gas Montero, ran it on 33s with no lift just a little bit of trimming.... suspension components started dying, so it was time for a rebuild or....

    so gathered the parts (Dana 30 and 35) cheap parts and lot available, 4.88 gears, heims and all the metal

    Front suspension is a 3 link, steering we designed a contraption of a hi steer for it, cherokee coils all around, stock rear, rubicon express front +4.5, procomp es9000 shocks, 4.88 gears, flipped Discovery II front radius arms on the rear, its pretty stable and nice as a daily, suspension works a charm and well I am pretty happy....

    but looking for more as always

    it is a light build, not something extreme by any means, the plan was just keep it on the road and make it more capable, now I have been thinking about either redoing it, or looking for another one either a second gen body and chassis or one like mine, add 40 cm to the body and move the rear axle with it, get a chevy 350 with an SM465 14bolt rear, most likely dana 60 (if possible) at the front and run 40s or narrow 39s

    Pura Vida!
