    Gen 3 Montero - I think I have a blown head gasket

    Hello, I bought my Montero about 6 months ago and have driven it thousands of miles, its seems to run good and the idle is smooth, and hasn't given me any trouble so far. It's a 2003, with 85000 miles. I was checking all my fluids yesterday and opened the radiator cap to find a white foam, to my...

    New Dobinson Gen 3 Montero/Pajero Lift Kit Option

    Chris, what do you think of the the Koni heavy track shocks and struts? I noticed they are in the same price range as the Bilsteins. Which way would you go?

    New Dobinson Gen 3 Montero/Pajero Lift Kit Option

    Are they sold in pairs? That looks to me that they are $1200 for the struts and shocks alone.

    New Dobinson Gen 3 Montero/Pajero Lift Kit Option

    This Dobinson kit is $1500 with the coils included, so the price seems comparable to buying the Koni shocks and struts, and a different manufacturers coils separately. Where can you buy Koni raids in the USA?

    Gen3 Montero aftermarket suspension sheet

    Where are you seeing the the RAID shocks fit 3 gens? I'm only seeing that they fit gen 4's. Is there no difference between gen 3 and gen 4? All the parts websites I see say they don't fit our vehicle.

    Gen 3... 265 vs 285. Help me decide

    I just got 265/75/r16 on mine and I can tell you there is a difference in gearing already. I can only imagine what it's like to go to 285/75 without regearing. I went with the same logic as you that it will be for long haul drives and daily driving more than anything. The 32ish inch tires look...
