jim cole was over to my shop recently. jim is known for some of his moab builds and his suspensions for buggies and broncos.
sticks his head into the cabin of my 4 doo, looks around, and says "i always wanted to build a montero, they are some of the best balanced rigs out there" . coming from a man who knows.
but we knew that already didnt we?
i say this cause id love to repower and modify but i do love the way these rigs behave off road, a different engine might lose me that sense of balance.
Dang it Toasty. Great minds think alike, I had that same idea and there was a crashed 2001 limited in GA with all the needed parts cheap but I do not have the time for another project. Enough with my turbo setup still in the process, I might even outsource it to a friend to finish it up.
