Some of the threads have kinda made me think, everyone knows that zuks get it. With that said you know that I know that you know that the Zuks that really get it awnn aren't really Zuks anymore. Ya they have the body and some seats but what else? What do ya think? Do you callem a Zuk if there really isn't much left of the original truck <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

O' my POS, I think it's Zuk. The only thing I have is those Toy axles, that leaves about 75% of it Suzuki. Ya think? Some of these guys are running coils, 22r's double stack toys, d44's, an extra 10-20" wheelbase, and the list goes on. Tell me thats a Zuk. Who knows.

Well lets see, I still got a zuk frame, zuk motor, most everything in the bellhousing is zuk,zuk body, even a stock zuk interior. Not zuk are toy axles, tranny and tcs. Consider what people on this bbs call a Jeep or a "Cruzah", with no original maker drivetrain left at all, tube chassis etc. In the end if Fat City can call it a Bronco, I have a LONG way to go until it aint a zuk.

Scwafish, you forgot, the registration still says suzuki Samurai. I know when I pay people to call my vehicle what it is, they must know. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Sure why not? People with Jeeps that have been heavily modified still call them Jeeps so why wouldn't the same rules apply to a Suzuki?

Who cares what you call it. It's not what you buy, It's what you build that matters!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/smokin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Zuk axles & Toy axles are made by the same company (Aisin). So 'upgrading' to Toy axles is kinda like going from a Dana 35 to a D60 in a Jeep, huh? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">


And the Brand-New Samurai's in Europe come with a Peugot turbo-diesel option. Does that mean that Suzuki isn't selling Zuk's any more?

IMHO, I really think if all you have left is some of the body and some pieces of the frame than it's not a really whatever it is you started with. Come awn. What's everyone hanging on to, I think some of ya are in the nile. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

I am not denying anything - my truck started it's "life" as a Samurai, so that's what I usually refer to it as (either that or a P.O.S.) Anyway, for whatever reason you want to have this philosphical discussion about "What is Zuk?" Well, 'seems to me that if you're all about a vehicle being "ALL SUZUKI" then you should be 'wheeling a stocker with factory options. Once you start making modifications deviating from Stock, it is Not what the manufacturer intended the truck to be so you are 'violating the spirit of the designers' if you wanna look at it in a genetically-perfect way. Fine by me if somebody wants to keep his stuff stock - either it's stock or it Ain't.

For Me, I will modify my junk in a never-ending attempt to make it as best it can be for what I like to do with it. I will put the best parts on it I can afford or make, regardless of where they come from. If somebody don't like it, Who Asked You anyway? <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

I guess I can't hang out on this board anymore since my zuk... I mean vehicle previsously known as a stock suzuki doesn't have enough original content (rice) to be considered a OEM or zuk. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">
