What is your best &worst mod.

Was just reading one of the better 4 wheeling mag.s and was wondering what everyone considered to be their best Samurai mod. and why. And, while we are at it, what would you consider your worse mod. and why.

I will start by saying that my best mod. so far is around the vehicle lighting. I like it because it prevents dark spots while backing up in the woods at night, as well as lighting to set up campo or repair anything that needs repair on the trail. I should also state that I have not made any preformance changes. My worse mod would have to be thehome made panels for the sides on the inside back and tailgate. The reason is that they look like crap and have no function other than covering the space.

Now it is your turn.

Re: What is your best &worst mod.

Hydrolic assist steering was by far the best!!!!!!!!!!

The worst was a remote engine oil cooler that didn't lower the temp. I will convert it to a tranny oil cooler, which WILL work!!!!!!!!!

Re: What is your best &worst mod.

Best mod: 4.16 gears. Now I climb hills I couldn't before with ease and my stock t-case buddy needs to be winched up.

Worst mod: exhaust mod (you figure it out). While welding on the new pipe, left a piece inside that rattles like crazy. ping-ping-ping.

Best Mod-4.16 case
worst mod- This really is a good mod but a real PITA and the wallet cause I can't weld. It's a spoa with rears upfront and mlinks and CJ's in the rear. Lots of unexpected stuff keeps poping up.

Best mod - SPOA & 4.16 gears (yea, I know thats 2)
Worst mod - Giving away the back seat before we had young-uns. That's why my sig says 3 seats. I had to build a mount for a toddler seat for my doughter.

Re: What is your best &worst mod.

my worst mods by far were building the 1.6, that was a total waste of $$$...why didnt i go with a 4.16 t-case or a 4.3???

best mod would be the swampers or my baseball shifter tough decision, however you cant go wrong with the TSL SX's

Re: What is your best &worst mod.

Best mod was the toyota engine/tranny swap.

Worse mod, was all the work moving the t case back, new crossmember, custom drive shaft for front and rear, bending t case shifter to clear e brake handle, cuting new hole in tunnel hump for t case shifter and tranny shifter, rigging up the hydraulic clutch, and getting a gm alt to bolt to a toyota engine and wire to the zuk electrical system.

Re: What is your best &worst mod.

My best mods are actually two. OME springs (SPOA) and t-case gears. My worst was exhaust headers. A waste of money, but they look good.
