I recently purchased a 1991 Montero LS with a 3.0 V6 and automatic transmission. The plan is to create an expedition vehicle on a limited budget. I will do my best to document all the repairs, upgrades and modifications along with the costs.
What I have to work with:
-1991 Mitsubishi Montero LS (LS was top of the line)
-3.0 V6 engine rated for 139 hp and 172 ft lbs torque.
-Aisin Warner A44DL 4 speed automatic transmission (Did you know this is same tranny that was Toyota vehicle so this tranny with bolt right up to NP231 and other jeep and toyota t-cases. So, bolting up a doubler or an Atlas would not be a big deal.)
-KM100 Transfer Case
-9" coil sprung, solid rear axle with LSD and 4.62 gears (ARB and Mitsubishi both have air lockers available for this axle, most 1992-2001 Montero were fitted with a rear locker which is a direct bolt-in third member.)
-8" independent suspension front axle with double A-arms, torsion bars and Aisin auto-locking hubs. (ARB makes a locker for this axle. Gearing solutions are available for both front and rear axles if needed through Mitsubishi.)
-Driver side suspension seat from the factory
-31x10.50R15 BFG KO's
-Power Sunroof, windows, A/C, inclinometer, new tires etc.
-Dual bouncy seats
-Aisin manual locking hubs
-Camp Chef Stove/oven/grill combo
-Custom drawer system
-33x9.5r15 BFG KO tires and
-Mombossa Roof Top Tent
Here she is, she has the extremely rare 2 tone paint job and rare alloy wheels.
Idler Arm $12
Roof Top Tent $300
