sellin my samurai

Well looks like I might have to sell my Samurai. I've got a pics of it here on a post I had earlier.....

Pics

It has:
Shackle Reverse life
31x10.5" tires,
brush guard
winch
looks and sounds like it has headers

1995 1.3 68,000 miles

I dont think they even make that hard top anymore.

I'm gonna ask $3500 for it but ill take offers as well. Im pretty sure ill have to sell it but I wont be ready to for about a month most likely.

Let me know how fair you think the price is too...because if I dont see any interest on here then im gonna start putting ads up at other places. Im gonna need a new truck in January so its gonna have to bo by then.

Re: sellin my samurai

I really hate even thinking about it and I dunno maybe things will change. I've thought of selling it and then maybe next summer buying one already completely fixed up...maybe even an older model one.

The worst thing is that I can probly afford a truck and the sammi(I still ow on the sami)....but the insurance is a bit silly because of an accident I was in when I was 15(someone hit me in the rear).

Re: sellin my samurai

Ive been doing a lot of looking at everyone elses zuk today...now im starting to 2nd guess whether im gonna sell it(more like 256th question myself). Perhaps ill find somethin old and reliable to work with instead. OR I could possible use the samurai for it with an engine upgrade. I need to pull a trailor with a tractor on it. The tractor I think is about 3000lbs. So 1000 lbs more than the sammi.

What engine upgrades should I look at and what are the costs involved? Thanks.

Re: sellin my samurai

My buddy has a couple of tow vehicles he is selling . One needs a little work but is pretty and the other is in primer but I would drive it to Fla ...heck I did and to PA and NY . It is a F 250 with a new clutch ,wheel bearings , radaitor and everything else it needs .. Runs good . The other is a 3plus 3 chevy dually its a 81 with a 454 and Turbo 400 aod .... nota 700 r4 . It needs the CTI electronic shift controller programmed .It has a cowl induction hood , dana 70 w/4.56 and it is very fast . He wants 3500 for the Chevy as is ...it really only needs the tranny programmed and he wants 2300 for the F 250 . He bought a diesel and now he wants to sell the two old trucks . So there are options out there . Good luck with your decision and if you are interested in the trucks pm me .

Samurai is rated at 2000 lbs MAX. Says so right on the hitch. Your 3000 lb tractor plus whatever the trailer weighs is WAY WAY too much.[img]images/graemlins/censor.gif[/img]

If you have to sell your Zuke to be safe don't even think twice. You can get another zuke but not another you!

Re: sellin my samurai

The samurais are only rated to tow 1000 LBS of weight MAX. Not 2000 lbs. This is out of a 1988 owners manual. Anything more than this would not be wise. Not enough brakes.

Re: sellin my samurai

You're right. I sold my hitch but took a pic of the sticker. It says 1000 lbs.

Anyway, don't do it [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]

Re: sellin my samurai

yeah I thought about the breaks idea...but then what about trailer brakes?

oh and btw when I first got my samurai I had to tow a 4000 lb jeep. I didnt ever really go fast enough for brakes to be an issue....but never the less it was done! But I suppose it wasnt safe.

Re: sellin my samurai

I have a 88 F250 SD with a 7.3 powerstroke and a 5 speed, reg cab, it will pull whatever you hook to it. If you want to do some trading, email me some photos of your rig and we'll see.
