I just bought something I do NOT need for my Montero, and I love it

Panasonic CQ-VX550

I already have a radio that works in my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero. It’s a Clarion M508 marine unit that looks simple enough, connects to my phone, and plays music. Basically, it does what you expect of a solid radio. And I’m about to ditch it for something way more interesting; a Panasonic CQ-VX5500. This is […]

Getting Ready to upgrade My Mitsubishi Montero!

My 1991 Mitsubishi Montero is set for some fun upgrades. I recently installed a new Gamiviti roof rack, so I can eventually add an awning. Our friends at Dometic sent over the CFX3 45 powered cooler and the PLB40 portable battery system. Additionally, I also bought the GMR45 radio system from Rugged so I can […]

Tony Montero: My old off-road rig now has a proper roof rack

Gamiviti Roof Rack Montero

I wasn’t going to do it… I told myself I didn’t want a roof rack on my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero. But as I’ve grown to use this a bit more for adventure, my desire to increase its functionality has changed my plans. I want to add an awning to the truck and that means I […]

Tony Montero: A few quick fixes help brighten up the looks!

It’s amazing what some quick fixes can do to a project vehicle. With my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero, I slapped on some fresh exterior parts and the truck looks so much better for it.

Off-Road Testing the Nextbase 622GW Dash Cam in my old Montero

I’ve wanted a dash cam for a while now. Both for the insurance aspect of owning one plus the potential for capturing insane or awesome stuff while out and about. Nextbase recently hit us up to offer a few units to test, and I jumped at the chance. Especially since Nextbase touts its flagship model […]

This is what it’s like to make a car part with a 3D printer!

3D Printed Car Part

There’s a space in the center stack of my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero that could be more useful than it is right now. It’s a little cubby spot, below another cubby spot, below the radio. Some wise individual out there has already discovered a better use for this space, and they’ve done so thanks to the […]

Tony Montero: Let’s Refinish the Face

My 1991 Mitsubishi Montero needs a bit of love on its face. The grille and headlight surrounds are chipping and the black paint I sprayed a few years prior is fading. So I set out on an easy fix to help clean all that up. Yes, I will need to do this again down the […]

Tony Montero: Is it time to get more aggressive with this one?

first-gen montero mods

I’ve had my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero for some time now. I’m happy with the way it looks and I don’t see myself ever selling this one. That said, I am itching to do a bit more with it. And that means I may have to add to it. Initially, I told myself I wouldn’t put […]

Project Cars: Jaguar and Montero updates because why not

tony montero and the jag

I’m a bit overdue on an update on these two. Let’s fix that, and also break the oddly Ford-heavy news cycle at the moment. The Jag My 1986 Jaguar XJ6 is running …well, ish. The engine makes decent power and it’s a great highway cruiser of a machine. Oddly though, the other night I was […]

It’s time for a Montero update

It’s been far too long since I’ve done a full update on my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero. Or has it? I don’t know, time doesn’t work correctly anymore. Regardless, we’re doing one today and this is it. Also, in the video, you’ll find a surprise sighting of an upcoming electric truck that happened to be driving […]
