Hi all, I\'m New/back/been gone, just saying hi
Hello my name is David Ulrich, and I'm a Sidekickaholic.
I started building my truck (lil Suzy) about 6 years ago, (I Bought her in 91) and when I finished had modified her as far as a Sidekick could be at the time. I built her as a mud bog truck and had a lot of fun keeping up with the guys with the big trucks on the trails. Currently I am rebuilding her to be more Mountain friendly, since my move from Memphis to Denver I discovered that mud trucks don't do all that well in the mountains of colorado. So she is on Jack stands again, I am reworking the suspension and will be adding a full roll cage and some other goodies as well.
Lil Suzys current modifications include:
Calmini Winch Bumper with 6000# Ramsey
6.5" of lift, 2.5 home made body lift and 4.0" Custom Calmini/OME Suspension lift
Skid plates and nerf bars
Calmini Header and low restriction 2.5" exaust
Onboard Air (modified Air conditioning compressor
Delco AC 150 amp alternator
Lockers front and rear
Superwinch locking hubs (second set First set was replaced under warranty when I blew one of them up)
and a bunch more stuff.
I am sorting out the bugs in my hybred front suspension and when i am finished hope to have the most articualtion that can be had from a Sidekick front Suspension
I am also going to work on the rear suspension maybe a four link setup, I am going to stay with the Suzuki T-case so I have to work around the driveshafts slip yoke. Anyone have any experience reworking the rear suspension, what has worked, not worked, idea's? I don't want to do the Calmini thing because I know I can get more articulation out of a custom setup
anyway, being new to this list I wanted to introduce myself and Lil Suzy I have attached a picture of her for those of you who have never seen her.
