    1988 Montero 2 door SAS

    Hello,

    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!

    That thing is sweet. Are they hard to come by and how bad do they rust?

      Thank you!!

      Actually pretty easy to come by (sold in the states mostly as dodge raider), rust is not really an issue at least on the ones that I have seen... pretty popular on So Cal.

      Here we have a lot of them, so parts are cheap for them haha
