Please submit your vehicle specs in the comments section when ordering, submit your VIN if you're unsure, we ask that you measure the length of your current torsion bars and include that information as well.

The Rock Crawler Kit 

This kit has been tested on dozens of gnarly southwest trails including the famous Rubicon and dusy-ershim, others include pyeatt draw, the back road to crown king, hackberry trail, moab and many others across the country.  The kit was designed and engineered with American rock-crawling enthusiasts, evaluated and improved over the course of ten years before being brought to you.

Some items are kept in stock with distributors in the states, some items are made to order, depending on our inventory at any given time you may receive most, half, some or none of your kit immediately followed by the remaining items as they arrive, typically the springs take the longest but are consistent, our suppliers are outside of our control but we will work to get your parts as quick as possible, if you're ordering this kit in a time-sensitive situation; plan ahead! We don't react to expedited requests, we simply can't. We appreciate your understanding and patience as you wait for the best and ONLY complete kit engineered for rock crawling with the Mitsubishi Montero.

We understand that everyone sets their truck up for different purposes, if you’re going hard and plan to really use that rig off road; let us guide you into a solid set up. This lift kit could be overkill for you, this kit was designed to support the biggest and baddest rigs of the southwest, this isn't a mall crawler lift kit that will get you street cred and a little more ground clearance, this is full hardcore, for fully built Monteros.

You need to modify your rig additionally to really get the most out of this kit, but there's a number of configurations, so you'll have to make the call, you're deep in the land of modified suspension here, This kit will change the on and off-road manners of your vehicle.  This is what we use on the more built rigs and we're making it available to you. Enjoy!

If you need advice on what other mods to do on your truck to make it the most capable in the rocks, please join our forum and ask while building your rig. Everything has implications and you're doin it at your own risk!

These kits are what Montero's conquering the Rubicon trail are running. They're designed for repeated suspension cycles, the suspension flexes and travels more than ever before. the ride will be softer. If any of this sounds intimidating or scary to you, hop on over to our combo-breaker kit and get a more on-road friendly kit.

Rear spring options  1", 1.5" and 2.5"
Basic info on all of our coil springs:
Made in America
Powder coated black
Increase progressive rate from 1.5 to 4.1

Torsion bar upgrade

HD Torsion Bars
These replace your dying or dead over-cranked factory torsion bars with a more progressive and heavier duty unit with increased load carrying capacity. Designed for use with a metal front bumper skids and winch in place, these bars will handle the extra load.

Front 5100 Bilstein Shocks
We’ve custom spec’d and custom fit some 5100 series Bilsteins to make your truck ride like you’ve never experienced before. Plush on-road handling for comfortable driving, like a high-end SUV should be, off-road is where the 5100 really shines soaking up all the terrain without fade. You'll find handling to be somewhere between a trophy truck and a Dakar rally champion.

Rear 5100 Bilstein Shocks
1" gets stock extended
1.5" gets mid travel
2.5" gets long travel

Adjustable Panhard bar
You can't go 2.5" and get full travel without one of these and if you're that deep in modded truck land, you're probably putting the montero to work and want this high grade racing component. Maximum flex, adjustability and extremely strong. You'll bounce off rocks that would bend the stock bar into a bad rear-end alignment issue.

Long travel brake line
We've sourced a long travel brake line to help you get the most out of your suspension travel.

Going for the 2.5" inch lift? It's advised to consider poly bushings in the trailing arm. Look up Siberian Bushing for uprated bushings.

Once you're in the 2.5 inch lift, long travel shock area, you're deep in the rock crawling area of using your Montero. This means accelerated wear on your suspension bushings. You can beat that thing down to worn out bushings and still keep slogging through trails, but if you're trying to keep your montero operating in it's prime, upgrade to the best steering and suspension bushings you can get.

This is a complete lift kit for:

Gen 2 and 2.5 Mitsubishi Montero  
Gen 1 V6 only - leads are available for 4 cylinder leaf sprung models. see that section

Montero Sport - Coil Sprung only!

Suspension is engineered around the full size gen 2 montero, results may vary depending on chassis type and constant load.

This lift kit includes:

-ADD Long Travel progressive springs - soft and terrain loving

-OME Torsion Bars - Extra weight capacity to carry an ADD bumper, and/or winch plate and winch you'll need out in the rocks

-Bilstein 5100 series front and rear, nearly trophy truck level of terrain soaking shock technology
-Adventure Driven Design adjustable panhard bar
-Extended Rear Brake line - get flexed out without damaging your rig.

Where do you go from here? Practically anywhere! but we'd suggest a full set of poly bushings, chromoly idler and ball joints and some of our skid plates and sliders if you're not already armored. Drive Wild!
