I would love to see pictures complete build up from start to finish. I am very interested in your one link, they are kind of rare in the states. Three link fronts or radius arms are the norm here for linked zooks.

It's always been interesting to me how Samurai builds have evolved differently in different countries; mostly depending on what materials and parts are available locally I suppose.

Thanks for taking the time to post those. I suppose I could have looked at your photobucket. What did suspension arms, or links come from?

These are some sweet tires.

Mercedes arms are anchored in two points near the axle. I removed a pin near one arms to increase articulation

I like those too, you guys get some nice tires over there. What do they call these Tires.

I'm sorry I should have tried to understand better, we use a Mercedes steering arm for a high steer here for some reason I didn't understand the entire links came from the Mercedes. we un-pin one side of the arms here too for more articulation.

I looked up the Mercedes G, did your G axles they come with locking diffs from the factory? I am also curious what they compare to for strength, from my reading the "G" series have V8's?

Thanks again for posting your build It's nice to see something besides Toyota axles and 1.6's or 2.0's It looks like your rig performs well for you. Is there anything you would change or do different.

Nice build Giani! When you post pictures, you can put the URL address between the image tags.

The tags are bracketed in the square brackets that look like this [
The first set of brackets in front of the URL you type IMG
The second set of brackets after your URL you type /IMG

It will look like this [IMG]http://blah blah/example/coolpic.jpg/[/IMG ]

That extra space in the last bracket is so that the code would show up, don't put a space inside the brackets

For the guy that asked about the tyres, they have been ripped off so many times now but the origionals were called Simex Extreme Treckers. Then have then been done by insa turbo as the Special Track, Fedima as the Scirroco and Silverstone as the Mt117 - Extreme.

PRobably the most common tread patern over here in the Uk, unfortunaly there limmited to 35's as the biggest, so most of us use Boggers in the competitions.

However i have no ides what the first set of tyres he fitted are.

Some "G" series have 8 cylinders, so your axles should be strong for you.

Did your Mercedes "G" axles come with lockers when they were new? Or did you put in lockers yourself.

What kind or type of lockers you have in the center of your axles; example EZ-locker, KAM locker?
Here a few pictures, which type do you have?

stock G axles have hydraulic actuated lockers. They are a very trick setup and simple. He needs to use the (possibly wrong spelling) Puke tcase because the driveshafts spin in opposite directions unlike every other tcase output. Pretty crazy setup. I've never seen a completely ass backward axle than a G axle. It's a closed knuckle axle that uses CV's that have boots on them. The wheel bearing spindle is part of the wheel hub. I've worked on Yotas, LR's, Suzuki's, and domestic stuff but when I worked on the G axle I could only say one thing...F'n Germans
