    Still the most viewed build thread. 169,517 views and counting!

    We need an update... Did you get the tcase gears installed or the light bar? Any new plans?

    I am in the process, very slow process for me, of going through the rig front to rear and checking/fixing everything up for the Moab trip we have planned for September. Right now the front bumper is off so I can weld in some reinforcement on the ends, mount the light bar, and repaint it so the rust is gone. Most of what I'm doing is really rust control from it's year in Sitka. The other big things are install the tcase gears, replace all of the suspension bushings as they are looking a little beat up, the rear main seal, and probably valve cover seals as there is a little oil leaking up there. Also I want to see if I can figure out where the oil is coming from that the engine is burning on startup. I'm guessing probably spark plug seals at the valve cover but I'll find out when I do the rest of the valve covers.

    Moab will be awesome! Typically, the smoke on start up is the valve stem seals. Those were replaced when the heads were gone through so maybe something else or they are showing wear? Could also try different oil type (Castrol high mileage synthetic - or ?). Tcase gears will be sweet! Hope you can get access to a lift...

    That Montero is a nice off-road rig. One of the best builds I've seen.

    Probably the coolest Montero project that I have seen! Great build!
