I found this one at pick n pull yesterday. Probably the cleanest one I've seen. Complete with fake leather door pannels and power windows. I kept looking at it but couldnt come up with anything I actually needed

Should have grabbed the doors.

Just go down to the one for the cat and do that, it's almost impossible, unless you want to get ran off the freeway. But I managed it on some farm roads :laughing:

Well I ran into a buddy of mine who I haven't seen in a long time. He was into these stupid track kicks before anyone I know. Had one on 1 tons and 47s at one point :laughing: I asked him if he still was into suzuki stuff and if he was interested in a decent shape 2 door. He said he has been looking for a good deal forever and has a 2000 4 door with no motor/trans/tcase that he would trade..

Extra body parts and rear axle shafts, plus whatever else I can think of, then when I'm done, the scrap yard should take it since it has no engine.

Good thing you switched doors, looks so much nicer now :flipoff2:

They arnt all rusted out, smashed on the bottom, the drivers window rolls up easily, and they have door handles. So I got that going for me

YotaAtieToo 08-29-2019 10:14 PM

I'm offended now

They are much more smashed now :laughing:

As they should be

Started on the sami case swap. First thing was to get the transmission supported. I was able to use the stock mount from the 1st Gen tcase with a little modification. Slotted one hole and sanded some ridges off. Didn't get a great pic, but it almost bolted up to my modified stock crossmember, I just cut the flat bar off and moved a little forward and to the passenger side. I plan on replacing this with something a little beefier when I build the full belly pan skid.

At first I was going to try to use the stock style mounts on the mighty Kong, but the driver side mount would have been inside the cab :homer: I decided to just build a full width crossmember off the bottom of the MK and brace it up and out to the wings.

This is the start of the passenger side, had to test out the dimple dies :laughing:

2big bronco 09-05-2019 09:23 PM

Wheres the updates

YotaAtieToo 09-05-2019 10:06 PM

Funny you mention that, I was actually just out there.

Here is what I came up for a crossmember. :confused:

https://i.postimg.cc/x8Lsnrjc/20190905-190142.jpg

Roughly mocked up under there. Exhaust will need a little modification, but not much.

https://i.postimg.cc/cJjT31rv/20190905-204343.jpg

Driveline angle seems steeper to the driver side than I remember when I took the measurements :laughing: what do you guys think? Too much? It's not going to be a highway cruiser, but in low range it may see the same rpm. I my be able to shift the trans over a little bit to help, but not much. Moving the tcase would mean some major floor work.

https://i.postimg.cc/VstZjt9m/20190905-203438.jpg

Now that I think about it, it's just roughed under there. It could be cocked, making it look worse than it is.

YotaAtieToo 09-08-2019 08:42 PM

Well I got a lot done today, didn't take a single picture though because I was trying to keep rolling.

I ended up cutting the exhaust right after the o2 and right before the muffler. Right after the o2 it dropped down and then went straight into the muffler, plan is to flip it so it stays high until right before the muffler.

Turns out the front drive line from my burnt 4runner is going to work in the rear. It's a little short so I used the same spacer I had as an adapter (same bolt pattern, but very slightly smaller pilot.

Hopefully I can drive it tomorrow.

YotaAtieToo 09-09-2019 08:38 PM

Well it's a fail, vibrates and makes a horrible sound.

Driveline only or got t-case issues?

jr4x 09-10-2019 07:52 AM

In all you guy's parts piles do either of you (2big bronco) have a grill or left front fender for a first gen track/kick? I'd like a grill from say a 95, need a fender from a 96+.

Driveline. Tcase is good, I actually drove the sami it was in on a snow run last winter.

Just got in a hurry, it shouldn't be too hard to move it about 3" to the passenger side.

Not sure how to tell what year a fender is, but the guy I'm supposed to trade with says he has a bunch of extra track kick parts.

Are you going to be in CA any time soon?

Shane, your ecu is still on my shelf, it won't go with the sidekick. If you need it, I'll get it to you asap.

jr4x 09-11-2019 11:58 AM

I'm coming to ridgecrest this weekend. Then I'll be in Reno in october. Got friends coming from paradise to one or both of those events.

I didn't think there was a difference in the body parts from 89 to 98. But my white one is a 96 with a left front fender off and older one and it doesn't line up right, body lines not even the same. Looks like 89 to 95 are one, then 96 97 and 98 were a little different. The grill on the 96 up looks like crap to, they made it different just to be different and I want the older style.

I'm pre-running ridgecrest in the tracker thursday and friday.

Wilson gave them to me, they came on his sami. I got it registered so I figured I'd try them out on the last trip up with no trailer. The problem is that they're ~2.5" backspacing and still need the 1" spacer in the front. :barf: so they rub really really bad in the front.
