Well got this thing rolling around again :D

"Modified" spring pack in the front :D

1.5" YJ's in the rear.

Sliders are done, rear bumper is done, rear shocks are on.

It sits here on 31's on stock Ford wheels 15x7....Tires will be somewhere between 35's-37's...

We still have the new 2.0 liter Vitara motor to put in, PRP seats, Tmax winch, lots of tube work too:D









and the new motor

We are using a kit from Trail Tough, we will let you know how the installation goes.

Also this is an 86 zuk
The instruments are stock? you changed just the dash? Are they for sale already? We do not have 86 sami's around here, so I do not know much about them. I need a dash but I wanted something low profile like yours not the one that petrowerks has for sale, too fancy for a daily driver. By the way, is that a chevy engine? Thanks!

Are those easier to put on than the VW ones ços you can get VW's engines all around brasil!

I had never seen that dash before since we do not have that many 87 samurais in Brasil( maybe one or two, but that is it) and I thought he had changed the dash for an alternative one, it does anyway look nicer than the 93 samurai's ones anyway.
I thought I had seen a chevy simbol, sorry for that, but anyway is not it the same engine after all( I mean the chevy tracker and the Suzuki Grand Vitara)?
And sorry if I ofended anyone. I will be quit and try to learn : )

lmao......... where would we be without newbies :flipoff2: :laughing:

that dash was used between 86 and early 88.... they chenged it in 88.5.... they do have a little more room around the shifter espically if you remove the stearo bucket(slides in and out), thats what i liked about mine, if i ever left the truck at a buddys house or somewhere i slide out the complete stearo instead of just my face plate...

Holy cow-doesn't the front frame addition stick out kinda far? I guess with the 37's you will regain some of that lost approach angle, but it looks like the winch is gonna be sitting a foot and a half from the grill...

Are you planning on having the motor further forward (than "usual") and doing a cowl or hood extension?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it, but it just looks a little sticky outy :D

I guess it was the scale of the tires throwing me off. The 31's look like little stockers, :eek: and the tires (36's?) on Amber's look "right" :D :D
