    Preface to the 1500 mile trip: In the fall of 2016 I was out on an adventure up the PCH through Big Sur to Berkeley, the trip was before the landslide that closed a section of PCH, but it was during some of the wildfires that summer. I had been planning to visit home, a couple thousand...

    Automatic Transmissions mounts? What's a good brand? Dealer?

    From general wheeling and use of low range with 4.63's the trans mount seems to keep taking a beating. Everyone tells me the aftermarket ones do not fit well, has anyone else chewed this mount up more than once? Is there anyone out there making a direct replacement with decent durability? I'm...

    MOD2016 - Mitsubishi Owners Day at Mitsubishi R&D, Cypress CA

    West Coast MOD2016 had a huge attendance this year (and other years likely, but i've never been before). It was a very exciting event in my opinion and I enjoyed the environment. There was a major lack of diversity. The space was available and even my mid-restoration 1979 Galant Sigma Wagon...

    This report is a few weeks old now. we've been on the road for the better part of the month and we're just getting settled back into our tiny-house in the southwest. If we back up two months, I got a call from a friend asking if I was interested in a transportation job. When I moved to the...

    Rumble strips without rumble strips? Axle shaft bearing early failure warning.

    I'm posting this thread as a sort of PSA, after talking to a lot of the AZ crew I learned that this is a pretty rare thing to happen and none of them had experienced it. Over the last ten years I've had a handful of montero sports and full size monteros. I've only ever experienced an axle shaft...

    Post Your Vintage Mitsubishi 4x4's (Gen 1 MM, D50, Raider, Montero, Delica Content)

    Mods, can this be a sticky? I figured since we have a sticky for full size monteros and montero sports, we should throw a sticky up for the first generation of these trucks but include some of the outliers. Pay some homage to the early days. Post your: 1st generation Mighty Max and Ram 50's...

    17x10 six lug wheels still being made?

    I'm sure someone is going to chime in with the 'so and so brand still blah blah' but I challenge you, if you think you know of a manufacture that still makes a 17x10 6 lug wheel, please verify before taking the effort to post in this thread. They seem to have all stopped for some reason. I'm in...

    Breathing life back into a high milage SR

    I'm 3 days into my vacation and mid way through the rebuild and lift on my 96 SR and thought I'd share. Ring end gaps were high but not beyond service limits, bearings had some smearing but no impregnation into the crank, no texture or grooves on any of the bearing surfaces, I plastigauged...

    Getting the mini-montero dialed in

    Well, I've almost stripped all the chrome nonsense off, just a little bit left to go. thinking about painting the wheels black or dark bronze, threw a roof rack and basket on it. Been tuning the carb a little bit here and there, it's never been subjected to cold air, getting it dialed in pretty...
