LWB Zook?

With all this reading about extending wheelbase and such, would I be ahead of the game if I bought a LWB version? I havent seen many pics of the LWB lifted and such, and the ones i have seen they look a little odd to me but I was wondering if there is a subtantial benefit by buying a LWB zook, and are they all hard top?

Thanks,
Ryan

very hard to find one,,, since they were never sold in the USA... people are getting them from Canada, or from south america..

Re: LWB Zook?

Here is a pic of lwb from a guy on the POR board. (Scwafish) It makes me sick to see how easy that thing goes. The guys that wheel with him are always amazed at how much easier it is for him to negotiate that same obstacles that they struggle with.

Re: LWB Zook?

Depends on what you want to do.

LWB wheelbase is around 93.5". But, the rear overhang can be annoying depending on your definition of off-roading.

No such thing as a 2 door hard top LWB. The 4 doors were hard top.

Replacement soft tops are very hard to source.

Re: LWB Zook?

If you don't mind body work, and the fact that you'll lose some of the body lines. you can make a LWB yourself. After looking at my samurai for over a year in the garage and doing body work on it, it seems to be straight forword.

Re: LWB Zook?

they never made a 4 door LWB samurai... any picture you have seen of them, was a photoshop modification.

Re: LWB Zook?

I used to think that too, until I saw a bunch of pictures of these 4 door LWBs:



Seems Maruti in India makes these as well as a company in SE Asia somewhere.

I am convinced that these trucks exist as there are too many images of them on the web for them all to be a PS job.

Re: LWB Zook?

A couple of months ago, on Izook, there was a pic of Murph standing next to one in England. They did make them, but in limited amounts. Chances are that there are NONE in the U.S..
