If you want a Jeep type vehicle, get a real Jeep or a Toyota Landcruser. The only thing that Samuri has going for it is that it it is light enough for 2 guys to pick up and move from any obstacles you may get stuck on. Other than that it is underpowered, parts are weak, too small.

Looks fun, but $6,500 for a 14 year-old Suzuki is a lot of money. I guess the question would be whether or not you trust the guy that did the work. If so, it sounds like a good buy if that's the sort of toy you want. > FULL 6-POINT ROLL CAGE SET UP FOR AIR TANK, RCI 5 POINT HARNESSES Nice extra protection, but are you sure that's legal in your state? In mine, most additional safety features on vehicles are not.z

This Sami is pretty stable. It will go up things that I will not go up and very tuff despite some remarks. It is being sold due to the fact that a Jeep Scrambler is already being built. It will go up just about anything in Telico Plains,TN. You can put a floor jack under any tire and lift it as high as the jack will go and all 4 tires still touch. It is hard to jack up with a High Lift!

That thing doesn't look wide enough. I still want a PreBan MilSpec HumVee Wagon. Not the Civilian model but straight off the showroom floor Military model. I will take it with the Turret and I want a detachable 30Cal Minigun a detachable .50 Cal and a detachable TOW rocket launcher as options. Ben

Having been the President for a large four wheel drive club for several years, I can say that there are some folks here that have some large misconceptions about fourwheeling and Samurais in particular. Factory Jeeps are hardly build for serious rock crawling...take a look at any 4WD magazine and you'll see tons of upgrade parts for Jeeps. Their axles were notoriously weak...that was the main problems with them. As far as other trucks, I had two Land Cruisers, and from experience, the engine, while full of torque, had very little horsepower to push such a heavy truck on the road. Many, including me, went to fuel injected 350's. The axles, however, besides the birfield issues, were never a problem. I've seen guys do some crazy things with 400+ horsepower, and destroy transfer cases or just absolutely unload on a huge rock, but the axles held. They're kinda between a D44 and D60 in strength. Larger trucks are of course a problem on tight rock trails, so you don't see them much. Samurais, while extremely light, have some stout-for-application parts. their axles are modeled directly after Toyota Land Cruiser axles. They're exceptionally strong for the amount of power and weight that the Sammi has. The axles, even with 33's, are the last thing to worry about on this rig. With good gearing, which it gets from the Petroworks T-case, the load on the clutch willbe minimal. The only things you'd ever have to worry about on this truck are street and highway power, and on-road clutch wear. The 5.13:1 ring and pinions will help, but they spin up quick. The only problem this truck will have on the trail is its lightweight. There are very,very few places where this could be a problem. Examples would be the top of Holy Cross City trail in Colorado (that big almost vertical rock) and Surprise Canyon in Panamint Valley, Ca (I believe that might be closed now). This truck would breeze through the Rubicon like it wasn't there. BCR308, I love your truck dude, but I got out of that about 3 years ago... Wanna buy my spring-overed and linked Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 with ARB air lockers F&R, '92 Chevy FI 350, SM420 tranny, extended wheelbase, full roll cage, 5 point harness, Warn 9000xi, Rancho 9000s, and slightly too-small BFG 33X12.50 MT's? I'd sell it cheap. Its really sad when you put that much time and money into something and then you decide to walk away.

Agreed. The head of the state police in SC for decades, JP Strom, strongly believed that the only reason someone would add safety equipment to a vehicle (like wider seatbelts, stronger latches, add more points of contact, wear a helmet, etc.) is because they intentionally drive dangerously. That's some seriously faulty logic. I have car insurance, but that doesn't mean I intend to use it. Of course, this is the same guy that argued that not requiring someone to sign for ammo when they buy it would cause the murder-rate to skyrocket.z

The little Suzukis are suprisingly durable offroad vehicles. Their bad reputation stems from idiots driving them in an asinine fashon onroad. As to the new "jeep" incarnations, I'll take a MB/GPW, or a M-38A1, thanks. Big V-8's, and slushbox automatics unless heavily modified tend to just make deep ruts, and leave interesting bits of metal on the trail, or in the backcountry.. I've seen two cylinder 4X4 trucks that will outperform near any off the lot condition "suv".. -Meplat

All the pics posted look great. Specially the HumVee. However, give me a Land Rover any day.

Sami's are great, but the short wheelbase can make for some fun on the trail. One of the benefits is supposed to be that they are cheap to build. That does not appear to be the case with this rig. Dude, it is a trail rig, where are all your dents?

Green_Furniture, It would be perfect for you. I would look nice behind the Porche. Mejames, It is not a school bus. It will fit into small places thus no dents. Thanks for all the input guys bcr308

Nice Rig!! I wish I had the cash. I have been looking off and on for a stock Samurai to do a build-up on, but people think they are worth their weight in gold, that and there just aren't that many around any more...supply and demand I guess. I think I would like to do one with a 4.0L, nice mix between a small block and a 4cyl...
