    Modest 2002 Montero Build

    Thanks! Actually ended up selling this car a short while back and I gotta say that I do miss this car. The yellow is a tint that I applied to the top. Just as a side note, tinting a light yellow is called 'frenching' lights. Just remove the light housing and apply a clear, adhesive backed vinyl...

    Cabin filter for Gen 2 & 2.5. A quick guide.

    Here's a quick rundown for a cabin filter mod I did on my 2000 Montero. The filter install requires the removal of some plastic mesh above the blower motor. You can replace the filter with the speaker removed. To cut out the plastic, it'd be easier to pull the glove box. The filter needs to...

    Denver area shop recommendations

    Call them up and get a quote. They were reasonable on price when they did a few bushings, axle seals and third member install. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Denver area shop recommendations

    I have had good luck with the 4Wheel Parts shop up by 225 and I70 for suspension work. I've had them swap out a handful of bushings on my car, however they refuse to attempt the rear bushings on the trailing arms that hold the axle.

    Custom Front Seats for Gen 2 Montero

    That may not be the case. The seat brackets I ordered were noted to be compatible, but that was not the case when they arrived. These are a modified bracket from Corbeau. They never got them quite right, so I modified them to fit. Would have been better off making then from scratch in hindsight...

    My Gen 2.5 Journey, a build thread.

    Your build is really coming along! Really good to see the locker install and in action. One of these days I'll be doing the same thing to mine.

    Creaking From Front Suspension

    Does anyone have the part number for the torsion bar silencers? I need to replace mine and am having trouble finding the part.

    Modest 2002 Montero Build

    Here is our Craigslist posting: https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/aurora-2002-mitsubishi-montero/6888377547.html For those that followed this tread- note that the rims were traded out for some stock rims with newer tires- as was the hood. Same vehicle- just a stock look.

    Modest 2002 Montero Build

    Winding the thread down.... After much discussion, we've decided to sell the 3rd gen Montero (this one). It's running pretty well, though a few things have since happened to the car. Quick summary: Aftermarket radiator failed and replaced with a thin Napa unit. Swapped the hood and rims with a...

    Not So Modest 2000 (Gen 2.5) Montero Build

    Thanks- its been a little challenging, but its been a really good vehicle and the wife and I are always surprised with it's capabilities. I also commute in the vehicle and its quite comfortable- though it won't fit in the parking garage when I get around to making the roof rack. Feel free to...

    My Gen 2.5 Journey, a build thread.

    Looks like a good vehicle! Looking forward to the build! A rear locker really does help, as does disconnecting the rear sway bar. Gotta say, the paint turned out really well- If you are concerned about paint, you could paint it with a Raptor-Liner bedliner like mine. Super durable- but a...

    Not So Modest 2000 (Gen 2.5) Montero Build

    The units I picked up are strictly LED. Its a completed assembly from Koito and it is essentially a non-serviceable unit. It works ok for light to medium snowfall, but snow starts to stick when its wet and dense. Take a look at this post to see the entire light module: <<<Link 1 - My build...

    Thanks! It has been a great addition so far and I'm very pleased with the additional functionality. At this point, I've only a few minor things that I'll likely change on it down the road. Before the snow started up, I was able to tend to a few small projects this morning. First up was to...
