No head light washer.
I need to get a FSM for sure.

Also, does mine have the 54mm hex or 2 prong socket for the front wheel bearing nut ?

54mm would be ~2" nut. I have not seen a nut that big on any Montero I've had. Sounds like you are talking about the bearing retaining lock ring. It is a two prong tool. Most people get a six prong for a Chevy pickup, 3/4 ton IIRC, and grind off four of them. It used to be around $15 at car part chains. The Mitsu tool is way more money.

Sounds like you have a swapped in bouncy then. The package was known as the off-road package and had the bouncy, HL washers, are rear LSD.

You can download an FSM from MitsubishiLinks.com.

Yes the retaining nut for the bearings. I keep seeing a 54mm socket when I Google for it.
So a Chevy 3/4 ton in what year range ? Or doesn't matter ?

Beings I'm in a wheelchair and the Monty being as high as it is. I've thought about rigging up a hydrologic jack to the seat, lower it to get in and raise it when in. Hmmm gonna think on that one.
I've welded a mount onto the steering column for my hand controls already.
Won't be long and I can take it out off roading. Wheel bearing needs repacked or replaced. Won't know that till I open it up lol.

Guess it's ok to link to my post. It won't let me upload the pics on here. Go to the last post and there's the pics of the controls.

Ok I'll get the 6 prong socket and order a full rebuild for the front bearings, no matter what I'll put in new bearings and seal, may even do the needle bearing just because.
Save all the old stuff as spares.

Now for the rear outer bearings. From what my book shows is another bearing retaining nut like the front ?!?!
Google pics shows a press on ..

What's right ? Looks to be tapered roller type as well.

My front axle tool is from Performance Tool, item W83010. I am sure it came from one of the chains here in Cleveland OH. The remaining pins measure 2-3/8 on center from each other.

I have not done any rear axle work. From what I recall on those who have, it's a pressed on bearing. I think the FSM even has procedures for cutting off the old ones.
