tracker rear 3rd member

just wanted to let you know that my brother and i found a cheap way to do a gear change in the samurai. we got a recked tracker for the 1.6 engine. also we wanted to use the gears but didn't want to buy another front 3rd memeber so we cut the rear 3rd member out of the tracker and put it in the samurai axle. the axles fit right into the tracker rear gears. it works great. the trick is measuring everything carefully and remeasuring. if you want any info let me know. i will try to help. this is a cheap gear fix if you have a tracker sitting around. for $500 we got a 1.6 30inch tires and the gears to go with it. a pretty good deal. trackers are great. . . . for parts.

Even better, the tracker/kick rear 3rds are tough... I got one in my zuk. Run 33's and can bark the tires with no problem in 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd in high range... Never given me a problem yet...

Re: tracker rear 3rd member

if you take a look at trail tough you can see what brent does with the tracker rear ends in the zooks,i just put mine in full size had to extend the drive shaft 2 in.[caution] do not use drive shaft spacers to much angle.i have been running mine for about 6 or 7 thousand miles but i did not hook up the emergency brake cables,they hang down to low.probly going to go with the em. brake on back of t case.but i think you just have to take the offset out of the one side the use the samurai axles and backing plates, but not sure, just have not got around to checking it out. my 2 cents worth. mike

87,88.5 spoa,32.5x11.5 5.12 f&r and the rx7 motor is at the shop hope to get it in soon.
