Can you do anything with a Gen III? #1056352 01/24/13 04:07 PM

I am going to look at an 05 Montero Limited this weekend and I was wondering if anyone has done anything to theirs? It will be the family/wife mobile but I still want to add on to it if possible. I am still looking for a gen II or II.5 that's not rusted too. The Gen III is dark green and my wife likes it over a van so that's working for me, but they're asking 11 Gs for it so hopefully the maintenance has been done.

You CAN do quite a bit. I have been very happy with mine...havent been offroading in last couple years cause of being really busy. But I have built mine to be able to go anywhere I need to go and probably places I shouldn't...lol. Do a simple search for Gen 3s on the board here and you will find a bunch of topics already on the subject that will answer your questions. Have a good one and hope you enjoy the Gen 3. I know I have. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Body Damage is Cool
Posting pics of your GenIII winching over obstacles is probably not the best way to prove it's off-road capabilities. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

They are Ok but not 1/2 as good as the Gen2 or 2.5 offroad, I have both, they are better suited to touring, IMO

LMAO....ya true, that was in 2 wheel drive after I broke a front axle. Still was a really fun trail and will do it again when I get a chance.

I dont have anythin to prove as far as where i have been with my gen 3....as many saw a few years back i was pretty detailed with my trip pics....lol.....they are a great vehicle and VERY under-estimated as far as their capabilities imo. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

X2....agreed....built right a solid rear axle rig is far better. I never had any probs hangin with the SA jeeps and cherokees tho when i was on rides. ....i just slid a little more on the skid plates goin over obstacles than they did..lol
