Welcome to my first thread here. While I'm not new to Mitsubishi, this is my sole pick-up. I've had 14 Monteros and Raiders, mostly as a parts business. Nonetheless, I am a Mitsubishi guy.
I've had Pearl about 3 years now. I purchased her as a turn-key Starion-powered conversion after blowing the head gasket on my tired Raider engine. Originally, I had no plan or love for this truck, just used as a commuter. Recently, I almost traded this truck away for an old Dodge W400, but couldn't go through with the trade for some reason. Maybe it was fuel mileage, maybe the turbo roosters in my back pasture that excite the family going sideways under boost. Anyway, yesterday afternoon I made a conscious decision that I'd keep the truck. I pulled the 3.9 LSD rear diff out and will be replacing that with a 4.625 LSD diff from one of my Montero parts cars. I'm keeping my eye open for a service body, as the truck will have multiple roles to fill.
What I'm trying to end up with, add 33" tires, too:
