i had taken my work truck(4x4ranger)"off road", nuzzling thru some brush. it took me a couple of days to find a route for some other equipment....upshot is that i damaged the radiator and that a/c radiator. i started looking more carefully at suzi's frontend.
started brush resistant modifications.

suzi and i went on a road trip. we did a lot of highway grind down to riverside(ca) and then another highway grind over the grapevine to visalia, where i finally got off that stuff and headed east..... i was trying to get to wishon.
no road problems, but couldn't get past a gate.
camped along the n kings. i'll check some pics and mabe post.
suzi performed real well.
i discovered the center link is worn- ordered replacement today.

centerlink replaced. made sure to squeeze out as much grease as possible and mess with the boots on the tie rod joints when i beat them off the old centerlink w/a pickle fork.
there must be a better way to do that.... a puller?

i have started a bit of an armor project.
i'm trying to put a skid under the tranny/transfer case.
i see that i'm hitting the front mounts for the(rear) drag links and beating up the front body mount mounting.

i welded some mounting tabs on the font cross beam.
[Linked Image]
also modified the transmission/transfer case cross beam, adding mounting points.
[Linked Image]
i made some struts to bolt to the mount points, and plan on making some sheet metal i have fit.
seems to be happening ok so far.......

Is there a Samurai front axle in your plans? Would keep your body mounts secure.

hey there geoman. i'm still finding little bits of time to play with suzi. i have vauge plans on looking into the georgetown area some this season, and i'm told armor might be a good idea. i'm also told my tires should be bigger or i'll flip.
re: sammie front axle...... i now have the low range gearing to turn bigger tires. i could probably run 33"s, but not without moving the front wheels forward a few inches. this is where the solid front could fit into the picture. the samurai axle would accept my 3rd(5.62).
i've been looking at how others have done this.
not this year.
i suspect suzi would have difficulty moving in high range unless i got a bigger motor.
also- this would force me to rethink the rear.

How is the fishing near Georgetown? Probably browns and rainbow trout in the streams?

Would these work for you?
