Zuk on 42's Build...

Well, I am about halfway through this build. Started out with my Zuk that was on Toy axles, cj springs, and 37" Iroks. This setup worked great and I had run a lot of hardcore trails, but decided that it was time to link her front and rear. It started out fairly simple in my head... now one thing has led to another and she has become a huge undertaking. The first 2 pics are with 37's.

So far... cut frame off just in front of tub, run 42" Rockers without raising the Zuk anymore from where she sits with the 37's, 110" wheelbase, Toyota axles with Long Field Super Axles, triangulated 4 link front and rear with FOX 2" dual rate coil overs, 3 speed auto modified, Sambox II with 6.4:1's, and full hydro steering. This is my first attempt at such a build. i have always done my own work with a buddy who helps me with fab in my garage. But, never have I taken on this much... This pics are not organized and will be random

Link separation is 10" at the axle and at the frame. Upper links are triangulated, lower links are slightly triangulate. Upper links had to bent a few degrees in order to clear the oil pan at full compression.

That is where she sits. Front brake lines need to be routed and the front is done. Then it is time to knock off the back just as we did the front...

98' Ford Taurus 3.0 V6 is what I looked up and purchased from rockauto.com, and you will probably want the connector / pigtail as well ( also available from rockauto ).

Those are big, heavy tires for toy axles.

I like your style jonny blaze. If I had a nickle for every time I passed out drunk, surrounded by beer bottles with welders/powertools running, I'd have somewhere near $1 by now.

Excellent. I'm ordering one of these this week. Been wanting to ask that for awhile.

Smokin' build too.

Zuk on 42's Build...

Damn! Those are big ass tires for a Samurai... Sweet! I'd be tempted to build some custom wider axles instead of using the spacers but this is a cool build!

Steering is plumbed and wired the electric fan today. I was impressed with the fans air flow and how quiet it was. Thank you for all of the comments!

Yeah! I originally was not going to go this big, but talked myself into it after I came across a couple zuks on the trail with 42's on Toylet axles ( built with Longfields ). Said they have yet to snap a shaft and after fallowing them up Patiot, I believe em'. I have also watched Yota extended cabs with 40's on these axles do well, heavier rig and more hp. I don't think I have the hp to snap a chromo shaft regardless of the tire size! LOL. I do like the skinny pedal though! I will find out I guess. If those toylets can't hang, I will have to sell some organs on the black market and pick me up Spider 9's. That is why I got an 8" hydro ram instead of the 6" that is ideal for yotas. I will need an 8" if I ever go bigger with axles.
