Default solid axle swap 97 montero sport

I've recently found out that I'll be moving to Phoenix or nearby area in Arizona near the end of this year for work.

This is a bit premature and might change or I might get this thing up and running since it's not far off, but for now I thought I'd offer it up.

located in South Bend Indiana

I've been slowly working on a solid axle swap for my 1997 Montero Sport, 3.0 automatic over the last few years, I have almost everything needed to make it a driving vehicle aside from the brakes, proper gearing and driveshafts

The truck was a running and driving truck on 32's until the day I decided to go solid axle, then I removed all the IFS stuff and started down this road.

specs:
dana 44 high pinion front
jeep 6 inch lift coils
ruff stuff coil brackets, link brackets, lots of stuff from ruff stuff
ballastic fab joints and some other parts and pieces
3 link front (not finished)
1 ton chevy steering, all brand new in box, not installed
stock AW4 trans with jeep NP231 t case, needs a slip yoke eliminator
ford 9 inch rear diff spring over rear
17 inch dodge wheels
37 inch BFG's

I'm sure there's a TON of stuff im forgetting, but this will get it started.









Price would be around $3,000 obo

oh man, i think 175,000 or 180,000? I just fired it up last fall and it started right up after sitting dormant for a year or two. These engines run forever and the trans is the same as a jeep cherokee (AW4) also solid

bumping it back up.

Just sold my 87 Montero, have some extra cash, not sure if I want to spend it on getting this thing buttoned up or not.

The closer I get to completion of this rig, the higher the price will go. At this time if it's running/driving or not, I can't justify transporting it to AZ with me for the move. I need to lighten my load.

That being said I understand that people like to buy a turn key rig vs someone elses project.

I can coordinate delivery to some extent. come on down, a rental car for a day is $60 for a day, if you buy it, i'll deduct that from the price of the rig.

bumping it up for the weekend, if the weather EVER clears up around here (snowing now) I'll pull this thing out and get some more detailed pictures of it.

things that might not matter to most but;

interior is tan cloth, all very clean, complete, has in floor storage in the read, no broken signal housings, has aftermarket cd/mp3 player, im sure there's other options and add ons that i'm forgetting.
