Default Biggest tires on stock 91 Tracker and cheap mods?

Hey guys
Haven't spent much time over here on your board, but you guys are about the busiest board around. Anyways, my buddy just got a 91 Tracker so he could go out and play 4x4 with us. Bone stock, 1.6L(?) fuelie engine, 5 speed stick (again, I think it's 5 speed), teensy little road tires on the stock rims, and 151,000 miles. Drives great and gives him no problems what-so-ever. Offroads pretty good as it is right now, even with the grandma car tires. Stuff that my Blazer and my buddy's 78 Chevy pickup have to slog through he just skates across in 4hi, 2nd gear, and 4,000rpm![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Anyways, we were discussing some mods for it, so I told him I'd ask you guys.

-What's cheap and easy to do to it? He's getting married, so lifts and rock crawling gears are out of the question.

-What's the biggest size tires he can fit on it stock, without rubbing, taking the bumper off, or cutting the fenders, and that fit on the stock rims?

-Any problems he should watch out for?

Thanks guys.

on the cheap.. best things to do:
Get some 1" spacers and a 2" body lift from RockyRoad 3+ inches of lift for a couple hundred bucks, the 1" spacers will give you a bit more than 1" up front. Should clear 235''s or 30's, maybe even 31's but I'd stay away from 31's on the stock rims.
Spacer install:

Hey, Guys, I just got one of these little Trackers, too.
I love the gas mileage, as opposed to my Jeep, but then
my Jeep never has gotten great mileage... I'm a-workin'
on it! Somewhere between 25 to 30 mpg, for the Tracker.

Oh, also, I couldn't believe how cool this little engine
ran. It ran so cool, it was almost pure on the "C"; I thought at first that the temp gauge was broke, or something!

Yeah, got to drive the little Tracker home, last night,
from out in Longview, to Dallas. About 200 miles or so, total. All I can say is that I put the top down, and turned on the radio, and had a great trip home, all the way in 5th.

In Dallas traffic, out to Longview and back, and the little
thing was just a hummer... never missing a beat!

Even my wife, who *NEVER* likes any of the old cars I
pick up, actually liked seeing this one parked in *her*
spot in the garage! Wow...

Take care, will post laters!

Rory,
...hmmm... TxTracker? Now, that's a handle!



...My Buddy, PPillard, got me interested in 4X4ing. I love it!

Welcome to the Wide World of Suzuki!!!

Now, install the 6" combo lift, some 32" mudders, a locker or two and some gearing reduction and you will have a little rock crawler that will impress the snot out of you.

You can go to http://www.zukiworld.com and check out the Calmini Customer Appreciation Run on the Rubicon write-up and see some killer pics of Kicks/Trackers in action.
