The Gen III is very capable. It can take on obstacles in 2wd that other vehicles can not do in 4wd. I have seen them out perform G-wagons with front and rear lockers. Forget everything you know about unibody vehicles, because the Gen III has a unique sub frame that connects the suspension to the unibody. The Gen III also has larger components than previous Montero's. I has larger axle shafts. The independent suspension is way over built. My biggest complaint about the Gen III is the wheel openings could be larger. I would like to be able to fit 35's on a Gen III.
