I know alot of you guys live not in Michigan where Foreign cars are more common, i just have a question about how well does a Daihatsu rocky do off-road, I think i have only ever seen one in my life, but i know they are more common out west and in the New England states. Just curious?
I have never seen one off road personally. Most are lowered ghetto sleds. I saw one on Pirate a while back that had some extensive work. For the $ I would not bother investing in one being that they are IFS and the aftermarket support is not very large. Plus parts... I would assume are more expensive because they are more rare.
Since we are all Suzuki guys around here... go with a Tracker!
I hear they make decent wheelers. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Well of course a tracker is better [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
I was just curious as to if they got wheeled or not, and since i am close to Canada, I think if i was to get a Tracker it would have to be a GMC Tracker or Asuna (Pontiac) Sunrunner [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
We used to have a guy in our club with one. It wasn't
worth much off road as a stocker. He lifted it and replaced
the IFS with a solid Tracker axle, if I remember correctly.
He was running 33s and it did quite well. I still see him
on the street from time to time.
those rockys are neat little vehicals. i kinda wanted to get one but they are no where to be found around here. i did see some for sale in nebraska but they all needed mechanical attention (motor work/clutches etc) and parts i am sure bring a premium $$ here in the states so i never got one.
i wanted to find one that had the removable hard top and was the 3spd auto with air. i am told they drive much nicer on the highway than the trackicks with the gutless 1600 8v engines. off-road they are just waiting for a set of toy axles. too bad more weren't sold here in the us because they are being built as wheelers in other parts of the world.
