A strictly off-road affair.
Starting with the suspension an over the axle spring conversion took place to increase ground clearance with custom shackles to accommodate the leaf springs out of a jeep Cherokee.
RANCHO shocks and springs are used all around and they provide a somewhat stable ride considering the total 5 inches of lift that this samurai has.
15×10 inch alloy wheels are wrapped around in all-terrain 31×10 tyres. giving the samurai plenty of grip to conquer any terrain.
Still, Suzuki powered!
The Samurai also benefits from an airlock system in both differentials while the clutch has been upgraded to a performance unit.
What initially drew me to this car for a close look was the fact that it was entirely coated in Line-x which is fitting for this type of vehicle and certainly give the car heaps of character. Plastic flares borrowed from a Jeep, cover the 10-inch wheels while making the Suzuki slightly more aggressive-looking.
Custom front and rear steel bumpers were made mainly for added ground clearance. Lastly Led headlights and extra piaa spotlights make sure that fun can take place during the night as well.
Bringing the samurai up to standards.
If you ever been in this kind of vehicle before you know that they feel sketchy -regarding safety features, so the addition of a roll cage has been deemed a wise decision.
Despite the harsh ride and incredibly slow acceleration, I wouldn’t mind having one of these JDM- bricks in my driveway for the occasional off-road excursion.
