This is a very rare 1989 v6, auto dodge raider
The engine is the 3.0 v6 sohv with multi-port fuel injection, a factory option for 1989. This one has a three speed automatic transmission with over drive. The four wheel drive is part time & auto hubs make things very easy. Original mileage on this raider is 174k, they get 15-27mpg. Cruise control, a.C., am/fm/cd four speaker stereo, suspension driver seat, independent front suspension with rear coil springs all rolling on fresh 31×10.50x 15 gt radials mounted on stock aluminum rims. All this add to the very comfortable, responsive ride driving this 89 dodge raider.
I myself have been repairing & restoring these two door model dodge raider/montero(18 years) since 1998 & I used only the mitsubishi service manuals to help me bring them all back to safe, reliable & fun once again !
Step out of your box and give these stout v6 two door models a try. You will be surprised!
All the maintenance has been brought current
The new work & repairs I have done include:
Brake system: new master cylinder, (5) rubber brake hoses, front pads, rear shoes & fluid. The e-brake & pedal adjusted back to spec. New pads & shoes are now bedded
Steering & suspension: new front shocks, sway bar bushings & four 31×10.50×15 radials.
3.0 v6 engine: rebuilt. New rings, bearings, timing belt & tensioner spring, oil & filter, gaskets, seals, o rings. The valve job includes new up graded valve guides. No leaks!
Fuel system: dropped & cleaned the fuel tank all the lines then added a new fuel filter. Recalibrated the throttle body. I also repainted the fuel tank & its rear skid plate.
Coolant system: cleaned & flushed radiator, new cap, some hoses, thermostat, water pump & fresh anti-freeze.
Emissions system: the o-2 sensor has been cleaned. I found & replaced the missing air canister, filter, air pipe & mas. The cat is working well & original. If your county has tight smog let me know I can dial that in for for you the buyer
Exhaust system: from in back of the cat the piping & muffler have all been leveled to free the exhaust flow.
Transmission (auto): cleaned everything, adjusted bands installed new filter, pan gasket & atf. Lubed & adjusted the linkage back to spec’s.
Transfer case (parttime): flushed new gear oil & seal.
Axles: flushed front & rear axles & added new gear oil. Disassembled, washed, cleaned & inspected the front bearings & auto hub assemblies. Both assemblies have new grease & hub seals.
Electrical system: tested the gauges, switches, bulbs, fuses, cleaned then & replaced them as needed. Places in the harness have been restored with the exception of the cd stereo which has 4 speaker support.
Heating/air conditioning: removed, disassembled, vacuumed, washed all the ducting & fuser grills. The heater core has been flushed. All the cables & pivot points have been cleaned & lubed & readjusted.
Interior: cleaned washed & shampooed, the floor, carpets, headliner, door panels, & the front & rear seats. All the latches, hinges, handles & window regulates have been cleaned & lubed.
Exterior: new tinted windshield, gasket & blades! Five (5) matching stock aluminum (alloy) rims with stock hub caps. The rear bumper, grill, headlight frames, wiper arms, window wing frames, mirrors, rear side grill, & wheel wells have all been refinished. The gold on black finish has taken the nevada seasons very well. After a good was washing, rubbing out & resealed is looking fine once again. Two door models can seat four comfortably its rear seat has three positions & comes out for greater rear storage area. The only thing on this raider that’s not stock is the roof rack.
All the above work has been done to factory spec’s & is in fine working order. I’m including the factory owner’s manual, bottle-jack & tire iron as-well- as a clear nevada title in my name all fixed for $5,280. You can also use pay-pal. Also I ‘m not looking for advice. Thank you
