Bryan, that's just sick.
You're gonna have fun removing all that crap...
When I think about the time somebody spent to do THAT, it makes me wonder....

Holy crap! That is freaking unreal! Have you driven it? How does it ride? How do you steer, or see how fast you're going or anything????

My god, that is wild.

You have to wonder much money was spent on material, let alone the time spent/wasted as Frog stated.

Nowhere:

That lowering kit looks like the same one on the "lowrider" parts truck I had last year.

If you actually plan to drive it, carefully check those lowering blocks. The ones that were on my truck were made of a low-grade cast aluminum. One was already cracked when I started taking it apart. The previous owner had driven it to Kansas City from Utah -- the low profile tires were worn slick from use.

I'd hate to see you in an accident!

BTW, They must have made a buttload of gray Zuks... Mine is the same color...

Re: My slamed samurai! LARGE!! 1024x768 is advised!

HAHA, THANK you all for the comments, keep them coming!

</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
This was a show car I built and no longer have space for. As you can see I have put a lot of time and money in to it. The paint was $3500.00 &amp; done by a shop in Colorado Springs. Interior was $2600.00 also done in Colorado springs. It is all button tucked crushed velvet (the real crushed velvet). The front seats are captians chairs and swivel. There are mirrors on the dash, doors, ceiling, with custom steering wheel cover, and guage cover. Bid is for my samurai and the trailer it is on. I also was going to put hydraulics on it so i had all the necessary brackets made-they also go with it.There is no transmission but it will only run you about $200.00 to get one, the motor is blown but I do have a motor that goes with it, I can have the motor by in thru a shop I deal with.

Here's my plan. Keep the lowering blocks in the front (good ones, I'll check them out) and put the bone stock springs in the back (vs the one main lead right now, it'll still be low, but with real springs, I do not plan to go hydraulic [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]). However, in the front, I'd like to the RUF spring swap with the lowering block inplace. Me thinks I can still have a "lowered" samurai with a nice soft suspention setup that's safe.

I'm not sure how it'll look, but there are some 295*50*15 (25x12x15 low profile) tires that I'd like to see how they'd look on there. I do like the "low" setup, but for suspention, I don't think so. It's on the frame right now, well, no, like 1/4" before it bottoms out!

For the engine, I'm thinking stock 1.3 for right now. I'll have to get a clutch kit, tranny, and intermediate d-shaft for that to work. In the near future, I'd like to go either N/A rotary 1.3 (carb or efi, I dunno) or a turbo rotary. The rear end will be my main problem. I'm wondering how the mazda transmission and driveshaft will like the non centered rear 3rd member. I'd use the rotary engine, rotary manual tranny (building custom motor mounts, transmission cross member, transmission mount, and custom rear driveshaft (mazda + samurai)). Wonder if I could incorperate a cv joint in the back to compensate for the strange d-shaft angles? I don't want to go to a yoter or kicker axle because of the width change (the rear would be REAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLY out there then!).

Anywhoo, 2wd setup up front, 13b rotary, new tires, and suspention fixing.

I think it'd be reasonable?

I'm open to debate! Also, should I lock this thread and create a new "project slamed samurai" thread so everyone does not have to reload the pictures EVERY time?

The gauges are right underneath that black rectangle behind the steering wheel (a cover was made to velcro in there).
