are you sure you want to turn this truck into a crawler?
Its a desirable truck so you could always sell it on ebay to fund a nice crawler project.

But if you do want to go ahead then the first thing to be done Would be a 4link setup and go from there.

there was a guy who made a custom emaxx crawler it was awesome eh combined solid axle and independent suspension into one.

I have never seen a mountineer i person but I would say go with tmaxx shocks.

I wanted to do that too I even started making a scale course but when my clod came it turned otu it wasnt that scale so I guess that is a good excuse to get a pajero or better yet another mroe scale clod
