That's pretty sweet. You just don't see too many Luv's on the road any more. I drove around in one many years ago. It was diesel, and if I remember right it was an '80 or '81. I worked that truck hard and it never let me down.

I gotta agree, that looks awesome!!. They are pretty unique, granted there's not much aftermarket support, but they look nice. How much lift? What size tires? I know I've got info on the LUV somewhere around here....what are the specs? Late.

I need a bigger engine!

To answer...

To answer your questions I put a 2 1/2" body lift then cranked up the t-bars in front ,subtracted the blocks they had between axle and spring added air shocks.Its got 235-75-r15 tires til I get some more aggressive ones.And your right there is absolutely no aftermarket support for these lil' haulers my biggest help is I have a parts truck ,but I have to hunt for parts or improvise and fabricate.Like my bumpers and lite-bar.

That's a nice front bumper!, I like it. Oh man, and u have a parts truck nice!; at least u don't have to search the junkyards for an luv part. 29" tires, not bad. Glad u weren't "all about" the Jeeps and more common rigs like Cherokees. U decided to be different & unique, that's cool!!. I don't check in often, but will be on the lookout for your build. Take it easy man. Late.

I need a bigger engine!
