"Lil Smokey" the V-Yota-Zuk

86 Samurai tub that was titled diesel so it's "street legal" for ever lol.

VW 1.6 turbo diesel.
Painless wiring harness.
Custom fuel tank.
R151F Toyota turbo transmission.
23 spline dual cases with Marlin comp 4.7 in rear.
Toyota axles with:
5.29's V-6 thirds. Arb front & Grizzly rear. Bob longs in & out F&R. Fully loaded six shooters with double sheer on everything.
FJ 60 steering box (I like having a box vs full hydro) but will add assist soon.
Ruff Stuff 3 link kit/heims front & full custom 3 link rear.
Custom drive lines with TG long splines.
14" ORI's all around sitting on 37" Trep stickies on Race lines with disc brakes.
Frame has been cute, 1/4" plated & stretched for a "109" wheel base. Full flat belly.
Just enough DOM tube to keep this as light as possible but can take rollovers regularly.

Very cool rig, have you had it weighed? And how do you like the wb with just 37s? I was thinking about dropping down from 39s and 106.5" wb.

Nice build!

I am starting a similar build. Question, how much of the stock tranny tunnel do you have left in there? how far up in there does the tranny fit?

I have a NV3550 trans which has similar dimensions, it looks like I will have to widen the tunnel about 1-1/2' on each side to tuck it up in there.

Any pics would be great also!

The wheel base is really good for this rig & I have 0 issues.

I completely cute out the tunnel & I think I did about 1.5" on each side and went all the way back to where it rises. I also had to cute the rear tub frame & redesign it to clearance the transfer case & drive lines. Even after stuffing everything up & in to get the flat belly, the tunnel fits very nice inside. You still have plenty of space.

Hey Shaun,
Just picked up my 1.6td hooked to a toyota trans with duals also.

How did you get the title changed over?

Andrew

Andrew, what up man! Title swap through CHP for a vehicle Vin before it became a wheeler. I'm sure you can still do it as long as your engine is newer that your body & still street legal. Hit me up when your ready to wheel. Pm me if you lost my number!

I've never put it on a scale but I have access to one & I'd like to know. I'll post up in a day or two with results. I'll guess now @ 3,200.

You might change your mind once you cute it out & see your tub lose all strength & structure. The tunnel is basically the backbone to the whole tub.

I'd bet right around that too, what's the belly height at?

That is an adjustable number because of the ORI's. I currently have 6 1/5" of shock shaft & my belly is at 24". The rig was designed to be able to operate with 3" of shaft if I wanted to get down really low. However because these shocks are so stable (little to no unload) running a bit higher doesn't compromise stability. It also allows for the suspension to take larger hits at higher speeds. I don't have a lot of seat time on these shocks yet, but so far I'm extremely impressed.
