you must not know this site at all this is the best site if you want to get flamed and called names and crap for asking stupid questions.
now if you use the search function on here or just go page to page in the suzuki section you will find a lot of info. you might want to try my favorite "zukikrawler" BUT you still need to use the search function.

as for your question it just depends on how fat your wallet is and your skillz in general. most sami guys buy used YJ springs and run them the come pretty cheap and if you can fab some stuff you wont have to but a kit to mount them.tires are a different story it's all in the Terrain you plan to crawler.
anyways look around try the other site and see what you come up with

If on a budget go SPOA and some 31's locked front and rear and powersteering also get some used tcase gears or some setup 5.12 R&P for it and you will be off to a good start

Gotcha.....

Guess i did set myself up for that with that question! Thanks for the input! I have seen the jeep springs but am thinking more along the lines of coils and definately gears and lockers.. Did a bunch of research last night and think that would be the best bet have a lot of rock trails around here and want it to eat em up
