Hi guys, here is a build but not going to be the usual stretch articulated rock crawler, although yes it will be a mud toy 4x4 trail fun Zuki it will have more DRAG oriented look to it, (just the way i like it)


It will take me some time and work but will be getting there eventually,


here is with what i will start, a little banged up body 87 Samurai but the good thing is, it is rust free,

And this is a couple of examples more or less of what i want it to look like when finished!

Also straighten up the tub a little,

NEXT will be taking off the body lift, and put it down to normal, Too lifted for my tastes, but the axle under leafs stays!!

A friend of mine built one of these a few years ago. It was very cool. He ended up converting it to propane.

I wish samurais had a hard top that you could take on and off that replaced the targa bar. That's the only thing i dont like about them, i hate the cloth tops and the targa bar.

You should fab up a "jeep like" top for the samurai, then after donating one to me for R&D, start selling them to the public.
