I don't have a pic, but....

many years ago I was playing on a construction site after a good rain (in california, that's rare). Anyhow, here comes a Toyota Land Crusher (old style) this thing is built, 35-38" boggers, sounds like a V8. Teenager with girlfriend as co-pilot.

He plows across this acre size puddle (about 2' deep mud/water). Right smack in the middle he runs out of momentum and buries it up to the frame.

He did this because he saw me going in and out of this "mud field". So I pull up next to him and ask if he needs a tow. He smiles and says "I think so". I tell him that he's the one that has to hook us up. Keep in mind that I'm driving in the same stuff he's stuck in , and with absolute ease (no tire spin, nothin!!!)

So I drive around him and back up to the front of the TLC. He slogs out, knee deep in the muck and hooks up (my) 30' tow strap.

Here's the funny. I slowly pull away till the rope is tight and give it a bit of gas. My tires just spin, and I don't go anywhere. Seeing that I'm not sinking at all, I give it more gas. Then more, then more. He's slinging mud too!

I'm shooting four 20 foot tall roosters of mud and he's not budging. Imagine a marlin jumping around at the end of your fishing line in the deep blue. I'm boucing left and right, slipping, sliding.... nothing.

Yep, he's just too damn heavy. I unhook and pull up to him. He asks for a lift to the gas station, I didn't mind. On the way he tells me the story of how it's his dad's truck, etc, etc...

Moral of this story, POWER TO WEIGHT. He had all that power and i had no weight.

I had the same problem. I had a suburban, got rid of it. I got a chevy swb pickup, still have that, but now I just bought a samurai. So hopefully I can find the 4.3 v6 I want and not have a problem with either power or weight. I know I'll incounter other problems but oh well you build it for what you need it do.

I have a video of us (bunch of zux) playing in this deep puddle, then a Mog with this cocky moron getting in it after dissing us (Zux).
He gets stuck in a first attempt and a Samurai pulls him out.
One of the best moments cougth on video ever!
The video is on a DVD and I wouldn't know how to copy it on a computer . I'm dumb with computers.

yeah my main wheeling buddy is a chev 3/4ton (FULLSIZEJRU on the board here)with fourtys nice truck but we went out wheeling a month ago or so and he got stuck in a pretty bad hole so i figured id just give him a pull so i hooked up my 8274 and dug holes with the 38s till the axles hit and all that i could do was pull my self out of the holes, BUT he does have a well large winch(30,000 with 300 feet of 9/16 cable) so he just pulled himself out, i guess we just wanted to see if my 3000lb sammy could do the job for future reference i guess i couldnt with out being tied off to a tree
joe


not sure if its a brand war its just that suzukis are better

Hey!

I've got no issues with other 4x4s. I've been yanked out buy just about every make there is!

The thing with Samurai's is they've always been the red headed stepchild. I remember in the early 90s, I'd show up to a 4x run and (most) everybody pointed and laughed BEFORE the run. AFTER the run it was always "wow I cant believe you made it!" and "I can believe that little POS could do that!"

Well back then I was on 30" tires, no gears and open diffs. A lot of high rpm slams to get through, but my baby survived MANY years of abuse.

It'sd only in the last few years that the Sammis have gotten respect.

my 2c

One of the guys in Gad Zuks got pix of a Sammy pulling a stuck H1 Hummer off a boulder on the Holcomb Creek trail at the Big Bear Bash... classic, the H1 driver heard it well into the night, especially when Hi-Lift jacks were being raffled off after dinner.

The Freak in a pic you can SEE it in


edit: NO, that isn't the stuck I pulled Brook out of.

It was really just a bad carb on a steep hill, but I took the pic anyway.

I dont have anything against other brands either, i own a chevy pickup, but like Reflexx said its fun to see the red headed stepchild be in the spot light, and besides I'm sure everyone would agree that most of the time it's not what you drive, but rather how you drive what you have. Ofcourse there are some exceptions . sweet pics guys

i agree. I drive a jeep cherokee but i am extemely impressed with what these inexpensive "not cheap" little machines can do. The simple fact is that samurais can be found for cheap and can often out perform a jeep with a suspension that costs as much as a whole samurai rig.

Its a lot of the driver. I have seen a guy in a stock tj out wheel a guy in a tj with a 3 inch lift and 32's its all relative
