Need some help.....Project info needed
08/09/20 05:04 PM
Folks, I am in need of some photos of the frame and front suspension attachment points, as well as some general dimensions of the width between frame rails north of the firewall to the front crossmember. Needs to be a First Gen, pre 2004. Reason is I' working on building a rat rod from a 90 Geo Tracker body ( just cause I had it), 225 Chrysler slant 6, and A833 4 speed trans. Since I've got to lengthen the engine bay by 14" or so, now will be a great time to replace the McPhereson strut front with a independent unit. Using Sportage stuff will alleviate some problems (same 5x5.5 bolt pattern, front disk, etc....
Just looking for a bit of tech help.
Re: 97 4Runner too Old to Keep?

I learned my lesson and I hope my experience helps anyone else out there who may think about taking a long trip with an older vehicle with high mileage and after market parts that are unknowingly cheap. Now when I take it to work or anyplace within my AAA insurance circle, I think about that it has the original fuel pump, ball joints, master cylinder, on its way for a second timing belt, potential CAT if the muffler cement doesn't hold up and keep wondering it its really worth it to keep.
It's great when you have a nice insurance circle for doing such thing. I prefer insurance agencies, which can guarantee the highest quality of service like one called American Insurance ( https://www.americaninsurance.com/
). They have pretty nice insurance quotes for auto insurance, and for house's one as well.

I am cleaning up The Montero Ranch, V2, and plan to vacate my property sooner than later. I have bunches of parts and stuff, still. If there is something you want, visit and wrench, and leave with the part(s).
Parts vehicles include: 1980 Dodge D50, 1988 Mighty Max bits, 2002 Montero Sport.
A for sale vehicle, no title: 1989 Montero LS LWB with sunroof
By appointment, as I now live in Oregon.

poor Leah is the victim of someone running a red light and having frame 1.25" from being repairable.
Oregon inspector wrote up the total, but we still lost big on this little car.
as i'm not aware of the exact suzuki details, i've no idea what crosses over.
Bush bumper for Sportage
08/01/20 05:04 PM
I just bought a 2002 Sporty and I am going to do the usual. Lift and new tires. Tune up. This forum is awesome so thanks to all the contributors. My question is about getting a new bumper and winch put on it. The search feature is pretty much useless on here as far as I can tell. Any tips on new bumper installs or a link to past threads? Thanks and I look forward to getting my new rig into bush shape. Hunting season is coming!!

I don't know much about the proper set up of tire and wheels for the Gen3 Montero. However, I looked it up and found a few compatible wheel and tire packages
for your said vehicle. Whether you're looking for main tires or spares, this might help you visualize your intended setup.

I'm from Florida, more specifically, in Tampa. Lived here with my family for years. Some of our other family members are living right next door, like my brother and his wife and kids. He owns his own 4x4 as well.

This Gen III looks awesome with that bull bar. But this is not so common. Anyone knows the part number or a place where to source it from?

I've been looking for the archived tech article on how-to put a NP 235 T-case on a Mitsu manual tranny. (88' Raider) I'm waiting a 4:1 crawler ratio.
