Hey, This is Tom. I have a "Type 2" as you call it '87 Suzuki Sami. I built it myself. It has 6.25 lift with 33's and a stock 1.3L that i finally got running right. I still have some things i would like to do, but i'm in no hurry. Put high steer on it and that took a couple of times to get it right. Now i need to get it shocked up and caged. No pictures yet, but all yours helps me along with mine. Its fun. Well have fun and be safe.

Names Earl, trying to find a sami-just hard to do in northern CO without paying over 2K (for a stocker to start project).
I'm a electronic tech. Been into hot-rods and 4x4 for 55+ years. Just sold the CJ7 a week ago. Have a '29 Ford AA 1 ton dually with a blown BBC that is my daily/tow rig.

Hi, I'm Jon. I have being messing around with Samurais since 1989. I have several "type 2" Samurais. I currently have eight (8!) running/driving Samurais and about 4 more Samurais that are parts vehicles.



I recently picked up a stretched LWB project from a friend that was building a LWB "type 3" DD rig. Coils front, 1/4 elip rear. (I think he finally gave up when he realized that the suspension couldn't be designed to be street worthy about 30mph.) Last week another friend and I cut and welded a "new" stock Samurai frame to fit the LWB body. The stretched Samurai will now be a "type 2" with a SPOA, 16 valve, F/R Spidertrax Sidewinder Axles, 4.625 gears, 33" tires, and a GRS II.

This has left me with the extra LWB frame with all the links and 1/4 elip. I am entertaining the idea of building a "type 3" Samurai based off this frame. The body will be cut behind the cab and it will have a small flat bed in the back. I will run Toyota axles (which I already have) and 35" tires. I would probably run a 1300 but possibly with a Sidekick auto/transfer/Samurai transfer combo.

He ya'll, I'm and I have been around zukis for about 12 years I guess. I have several of the little things, two that are modded some. First one is a 86 with a 5.0 engine, auto trannie, Yj rear springs in the rear with buggy leafs, Yota springs in the front with M/L's, 4.30 axle gears welded both ends. T-100 rear axle and 85 front with spacers. Second is a 88 1/2 with tracker rear axle, sammi front with chrome axles and birf rings, with 5.13 axle and 5.14 T/C gears locked both ends with engine mods, lift and lots of other crap.

Hows it going. My name is jeff. I have been into samurai's for maybe a year. Problem now is I am hooked on them. I built my whole rig myself. Only regret is I wish I would of just put 33's or 34's on it instead of 32's. I drive it everyday to the cemetery ( I am a gravedigger ) and I try wheel it every once in a while. This year I went to cow mtn once. Also did the rubicon ( Drove it 4hrs there, stayed 2 days to play, and then drove 4hrs home) Did not break any parts or get stuck.

But here is a build list:

YJ Springs with TT brackets and missing links F/R
Sky stage 2 FULL over the top steering with FJ 80 Rod ends
Spydertrax Coated brake lines
Spydertrax drive line spacers
Sky front shock hoops and Sky Rear shock mount
Doechstech Shocks F/R
ALL new Energy Suspension Bushings
AR Soft 8 wheels 16x8
32x11.5x16 Trxus MT tires
2" Billet Wheel spacers
Strong 1.3L motor
Aluminum Valve cover
Chevy 100 amp Alternator
6.5:1 T-Case gears
HD T-Case mounts
Full TT Skid Plate
TT rear spool
LockRite if the front
Trail Tough DBL Tough Axle shafts
SideKick PS setup
DT header with all new 2" JK Fab exhaust with Spintech muffler and HF Cat
MySide2 Kit with Harley carb and AN Braided Fuel Line
Real HID 4000K Headlights With Ballasts and HELLA Glass H4 Lenses
Custom JK Fab front winch bumper
Smittybilt XRC8 5.5hp 8000lb winch with 100ft Synthetic Rope
Custom JK Fab Rock sliders
Suspension seats that where adapted to Samurai seat rails
RCI Cam lock belts
Small JK Fab Interior cage (Mainly for seat belt mounts)
Full 2 1/16 Elec Gauges (A/F, Oil Press, Water Temp, Volts)
Factory Tach Dash Cluster
Kenwood Stereo with Phonex Gold Component speakers in the rear and sonys in the front.
CB with Antenna

Before:



After:

Sorry if I posted without first reading (i.e. "another 16v turbo"thread). I wasn't really paying attention. As far a Suzukis. I first wanted one in high school (graduated in '87 in the thick of their production). I bought mine on 2/14/1998. My girlfriend was pissed I dragged her out to buy a car on Valentines Day. It is an '87 Hard top-bone stock.It now has a 16v ,p/s ,a/c ,GRSII ,ARB air locker f&r ,Rancho 9000 ,SPOA-yada-yada-yada.

Not quite a type 3 but happy with it some what.
Toyota 4ac engine.
6.5 to 1 tcase.
stock axles with 34s will be going to 35s.
Side kick steering box Toyota corolla steering pump.
Over the top steering arms.

Kind of a buggy will be redoing the back side for more storage

Type 2
Spring over 31/33", built sami axles, Stock Motor, 4:1 T-case
This is the where people say they have the most fun, fun little rig that is very capiable... But storage is an issue with any distance/camping trips.

Type 3
Toyota axles, 33/36", 1.6 L motor, 6:1 T-case.
These guys are always looking for more and are never happy. Most guys have plans to go bigger, but a few say they should have just stuck to 33"s and sami axles.

Type 4
Built Toy/dana axles, 36-40", Bigger motor yet, Links suspension, cut up body and caged. This is where I'm at - I want the performance of a buggy, but still need the road worthiness and weather tightness of a door slammer. People like us are never happy, period. but the rigs do perform well.

Sure some of you might not agree with me on this, but this is how I look at it.

Type 1 is useless - don't leave your sami stock.
Type 2 is perfect for weekend warriors and you will probably have the most fun getting your "stockish" sami to follow much more built rigs.
Type 3 is just a transition, rigs don't stay like this for long because stuff is alway breaking.
Type 4 is just for those guys thats are nuts.
4rnr did a great job of writing this, just seems to be missing the final rank.

Type 5 Built axles, 38-42" tires, far from stock drivetrain, Linked front/rear, excellant approach angles, cage tied to frame in many spots. Vehicle weight is of more concern than OEM sheet metal. Crazy enough to loose the windshield, roof, doors, and most the body and will wheel in any weather.

Type 4 guys slightly respect body work and heaters, and are kinda nuts.
Type 5 guys are nuts.

i'm joey and i'm 21 makin sure i make everyone happy and post in here. currently buildin a 90 Samurai i guess it'll be classified as a type 5 once i have all the parts installed.
it started out as a dd for my dad when he bought it new then slowly racked up 530k miles so i have finally decided to make my jeep a little more streetable and build an all out trail slut.
