Darkhorse, I actually have access to a few 94-95 Montero SR's at one of the local yards. Anything special on those that is a good upgrade? I would like to upgrade the rear end eventually just to get rear discs. Does it matter if the rear comes from an auto Montero since mine is manual?
Check the badge in the engine bay but I'm 99.9% positive it's basically the same (4.625 vs 4.636 which are both called 4.6 gears in the Montero realm) the only issue I can think of is the variety of flange patterns they used on the pinion but that's easily overcome. Oh and getting the ebrake to work perhaps. Nab the coils and front upper a-arm as well as the calipers and rotors to upgrade yours all at once. No idea but maybe the master and booster since you're a yard hound.
I would sell my superwinch manual front hubs, and I have that early grill as pictured in the 4g63 swap one above. .
