Hello gentleman My name is jason and im a zuk addict just like the rest of you guys.

I live in Pennsylvania,USA and have been into suzukis for the past 10 years or so.

My current zuk is a 91 samurai with a custom built suspension lift using Jeep YJ springs and 33" mickey thompson baja claws.



It is built a competition rock crawler that has seen better days. I have some broken parts to fix from last years comps.

If you are on any of the US boards i typically go by Freebird01.

mick

class rules limit me to a stock suzuki front axle. I am running trail tough 4340 chromoly axle shafts and vitara 4.30 gears. right now the locker is in the rear but i plan on moving it to the front once i build a jig to make sure my housing is still straight.

in the rear is a stock zuk axle with calmini chromoly shafts and a custom rear disc brake setup. I run two parking brake handles for cutting brakes and 4.30 vitara gears with an open diff (once the locker is put in the front)

im mainly looking for a factory limited slip whether its for a samurai or vitara. samurai would be easier on me but i am allowed to run a hybrid rear (vitara center with samurai axle tubes)

That motor is stunning, by far and away the best looking SJ I've seen in a long time, it just looks so well put together and a nice paint job to boot.

thanks a really appriecate the compliments! that pic was barely washed and after a full season of competition. it still has a broken t-case and a tweaked spring.

now that i have my cnc plasma cutter up and running ill be able to refine my suspension a bit more. most of the suspension components are hand built as im usually on a shoe string budget like everyone else. the paint is a good 10ft job but i did it myself and its a base clear job too.

she doesnt work too bad but here are some action pics for you guys to drool over Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

i will be becoming a vender on other suzuki boards however with the duty fees and exchange rates it might be a bit expensive to send parts across the pond
