At least suzi is out there fighting the granitic beasties thanks to your work on her. All my stuff sits or gets used for commuter duty, sadly.

If Montero parts can be repurposed for suzi, let me know.

suzi the psychic made me real proud.
we ran the rubicon, west to east. nice to see lake Tahoe!
unusual to have so much traffic, and suzi and I are real slow, but we refrained from being too much of a trail plug.
ran with a fine group of "self sufficient suzuki enthusiasts"(zukiworld).
let's see if this video thing works.......

suzi the psychic has put on a new face.
I think i'm gonna put a hi lift mount in front, over the winch. found a use for her old sway bar- became part of her "bumpers".

while I've been messing around a lot of rocks recently, and i'm mabe just a poor driver, i had bent up the piece of angle iron I had added "to brace" the a/arm mounts(and attach skid plate). I replaced it with some square tube I had found.

miss bitchy and suzi the psychic are gonna go play 8/15-19.
I think i'm looking for front axle parts for suzi- if I get a couple of sets together, I may attempt a "hagan widening mod" this winter.

suzi the psychic back on pavement.
she needed a bit of adjustment for hwy travel......
i have completed(with a great deal of assistance) a most excellent adventure.
some details will follow.
info.... the cheap 2"x20'harbor freight tow strap w/hooks is surprisingly durable.
i mean - really.


blabla091413
still haven't totally inspected dusy damage, but there seems to be little.
i have a new draglink coming to replace "the spare" i will probably carry forever, now. also tie rod ends and ball joints, because they were worn anyway.
i expect to relocate(mabe replace) the fuel tank, and fuel delivery.
some armor modifications, such as replacing my original skid plate, seem worth it, and shouldn't be a big deal.
i want to mount my hi-lift on suzi's butt somehow, take some weight off her nose.


still --- too early to disable her - still have mabe two more runs this season?
we will see......
