I've been looking for another Montero but I don't know if this has the locker in it. Can someone tell me more about this compared to my 95 SR. Thank you.

LS will have smaller diff versus the SR. No locker unless you put in an ARB. Will also have 3.0l engine instead of the 3.5.

the LS will have a 3.5L engine, not 3.0...

You're right. 97 was the first year they upgraded the LS package to a 3.5L engine instead of the 3.0L engine which came in all the earlier LS'. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I have a 97 LS, and it has given me countless trouble free miles, taken me all over the SW, impresses naysayers with it's off road abilities, and still surprises me daily, and I certainly do not sir to pee smile

I get 3 days off every 25 days working on the Eagle Ford Shale. I'm looking for a gen 2 maybe gen 2.5 but it has to be rust free and not in bad shape. I am interested though.
