I just don't understand some people.
Me & Chris go to one of the local custom shops to buy a Toyota hi-steer from some guy thats doing a samurai build up. He got it from one of the vendors & it came with all the wrong tie-rod ends. Instead of dealing with the vendor--he sells it to Chris for almost nothing.
It is a very sweet zuk, he's spent more on parts than I've spent on my whole rig.
Jp eater kit w/ new leafsprings
Toys with 5.29s & disc brakes in rear
new driveshafts ft & rr
6 to 1s with a mighty kong
35" Krawlers with fake-locks
bumpers ft & rr with all led lights & HID headlights
Anyways, this is a partial list. But getting back to the point......... We had a 4-wheel ride for toys to help the needy kids. Donate a toy & go riding all day. It was a big event with a good turnout, it was in the paper & on the news. The day of the ride I showed up in my Cherokee & dude's samurai was one of the ones parked by the road with the banners tied to it.
After the raffle & stuff everyone got ready to ride. We had a police escort through town all the way to the trailhead. (that was a first!!) We start heading up the trail & guy parks the samurai & hops in with someone else!!! I pulled up and asked him why he wasn't taking the samurai on the ride. His reply---------he didn't want to get it SCRATCHED UP.
You've got to be F'n kidding me!!!!!
I should've known. The lights & coffee can exhaust should've tipped me off. What is this world coming to??? A man builds a perfectly capable off-roader but doesn't want to scratch it. Never in my F'n life........................
Just had to rant.
I'll get some pics. of it & post 'em up.
