What does your common sense tell you?
Other than the hideous cloth interior on the 3rd gen they are very nice rigs.
Sounds like the dealer mostly wants your Tacoma, they are a very hot seller right now and is worth a bit more than they are offering you.
Yes, a 2003 would be a 3rd generation Montero.
Apples to oranges, gen 2/2.5 vs gen 3 are not the same vehicle.
Seeing as 33's come in a 9.50, 10.50, and 12.50 width it's not strange at all, plus some tires are not true to size.
A search over on 4x4 wire will pull up info.
Someone might expect something more along the lines of a trailing arm and air bag setup at that price point, good luck.
Still for sale.
You could have went with a 235/85r16 or 255/85r16 and likely not had any rubbing.
That video reminds me of my time in Europe, spent 28 months over there and it's so green and beautiful, thank for sharing.
Every rig I have ever seen built by these guys is top notch, someone is going to be getting a heck of a setup for the money.
Any pictures of the trailer suspension setup?
Just out of curiosity, when did they change their laws on the cat converter? I ran an aftermarket unit on both of my cars when I lived there. I suppose it may depend which county you are in as well.
Loss of power/acceleration is one symptom of timing being off. As for the thermostat, if a lower temp model was used then it will open sooner and not allow the engine to get up to optimal running...
Most of our Utah trails have big rocks, but my appetite for hardcore trails has decreased a lot the last few years in favor of more scenic trails with fishing involved. Maybe I'll start with the OME...
Holy crap, no wonder most guys were only averaging about 11mpg from what I read.
Brake dust shields, and they are perfectly as they should be.
I may even look at the option of running a set of the Interco radial tires in 34x10.50, they measure the same diameter as a 35x12.50 km2 but will weigh a bit less, also will clear the fenders better.
I have multiple sets of tires for it in the garage as well to swap out as needed, but when most camping and off-roading activities here are over 7-8000 feet in elevation the power suffers a lot.
But the problem is you see I don't know how to slow down and take it easy, my man brain says to give it more gas to go faster.
So I'm on the fence about upgrading to 35's, my original plan was to order the OME coils and torsion bars along with the 2 inch body lift and raise the gas tank. My question for those who made the...
Oh yeah, 2000 was kind of their bast@rd child transition year, forgot about that.
Ray, if you have the winter package with heated leather seats then you already have the rear diff lock, no need to buy one if you already have it. Good luck with getting it set up, these are a pain...
