'87 Suzuki Samurai w/ 1.3L of pure hell:D

After nearly 20 broken cv's and a pile of expensive hubs, the taco is sticking to the street.Picked it up dirt cheap from a buddy. Sprung over on 33's with a 5:1 tcase.Bought it with intentions to go ahead and 4 link the rear and put toy axles under, however i went ahead and wheeled it once at Mtnside like it was. Lets just say even like it was, i didnt miss wheeling the brown cow!

Heres a couple pics the way i got it. I had to do it in right, so i flopped it in the parking lot before i ever even got to wheel it.






Finally got started on the 4link/stretch last night, these are 33s but i have a set of 36 tsls that are going on when its done. Looks like its going to end up around 100''-102''. Either going with yj or rear springs up front.






Ill have more pics in the next few days as we get more accomplished.

:doh:You can never make up your mind can ya? :lmao:But hey, I respect whatever works.

why not take the suspension from the Sami and swap it onto the Brown Cow. The brown cow is not really your average daily driver:rofl:
Im looking forward to the build! I have never really read up on a Sami build

I had 94 Wrangler, all stock. It was a piece of crap and not very impressive off road. Then got a Sidekick, stock with little biggers tires. This thing went EVERWHERE. It only had the 1.8L and sounded like a pissed off hampster on the interstate, and not much torque on steep inclines, but still.... Yeah, have a blast with the Suke and keep posting the build.

At least you wouldn't have to worry about the torque of the engine breaking any of your drivetrain. :D

I wonder if you could cram a 3.4 in there. :p

Instinctively, you'd lean forward and strain while trying to go up hill. But yeah, it didn't have enough power to hurt itself :D.
