LJ80

I ran across an LJ80 convertable with no engine, tranny or t-case. It has plastic seats and no top. Body looks pretty good. How difficult would it be to put the LJ80 body on a Samurai? Is it worth the effort and expense. Does anybody have an idea what this LJ80 with no power train is worth?

Thanks,

-Farther

Re: LJ80

Dude,
Keep the chassis & mount all your Sammi trans onto the LJ and make the most of the 10" shorter wheel base.
Try getting hold of a set of SJ410 axles - they fit nicely. Forget the LJ engine, gearbox ( you always lose 3rd ) transfer box is too weak & axles are cheesy, but hold on to those 4.55:1 diffs.
Springs are the same length but look how close to gether they are then just think about the flex.
To get the Sammi 1300 ( or SK 1600 ) engine & 5 speed Sammi box under the body you'll need a 2 inch body lift and still have to cut & widen the tunnel near your feet but it's well worth it as the little LJ is so light.
I got all the above on mine with 33s - it's great - makes a Sammurai look cumbersome.
If yo uneed any help feel free to contact me on

Easy fit?
Driveshafts mate up?
Perches?

Re: LJ80

The Noddy Mobile - Jeepn - It's a British thing - You wouldn't understand.

410 axles fit - perches same width.
Flange patterns - you use the 410 tbox & props - all the same - as SJ diffs are offset & LJ diffs centred.
Use the 410/413 transfer box brace
Easy ? - it's a chassis up build but its easy on the LJ as the front unbolts from the tub but I think it's well worth it. Most parts bolt together - welding is mainly for the engine & t-box mounts. Transmission tunnel needs to be cut.
Widening the wheel arches is upto you & your state laws.
Its the Jeep that Suzuki built better.

By the way if you can get a copy of the March Edition of the UK Mag "4X4 Off Road & 4 Wheel Drive" you'll see it on the cover & a 7 page article on it listing most of the mods.
They liked it because of the colours.
