1.6 injected vitara
3spd gm auto (early vitara)
choped vitara transfer

37" bfg stickies
trail gear beadlock alloys
longs up front, drive flanges
poly perf rear axle shafts
psc 2.5" ram and res
14" x 2.5" foas up front, 16" in the rear

flexed her up, no binding on the shocks at all, only on the front shaft at the centre bearing , added sum more tube on the front and a place for the cheapo chinese winch when it gets here then spent most of the day welding the front end up, got to notch the front bar to take the bumps and shorten the stroke on the bumps to 2", then next is the gussets and sume more tube around the place then thats the cage pretty much done.

so bought a winch of ebay and wasnt happy with it, had helicoils in the housing for the main hold down bolts, ended up shortening my 6000 warn winch and rebuilt and re greased while i was at it, made up the mounting bracket and did the 2 front recovery points aswell.
