New owner of 88.5

The wife and I just bought a Zuk tonight, she bought it and I have to put all the money into it. Anyways, I am going to go with the 5.5" SPOA from RRO, a rear lock-right, the 4.16 gear set, 12x15 or 10x15 gumbo mudders on black rock crawler wheels and a front loop kit. I am going to fit a tow bar in there somewhere also, this is going to be strictly for trails and fun. Anyways, I have been reading a ton of all of your posts and I have not seen anywhere the name of the axles in the Samurai. If someone asks what axles do you have, do I just respond Suzuki?! Also, I am not too familiar with third members, when installing a lock-right will the pinion depth and backlash have to be set up again? One more, can you all throw me some ideas on a good front bumper that I can hook the tow bar too, the capability of a winch mount is not important, I always wheel with buddies. Any other tid-bits of information is welcome, I have already picked up alot from all the posts already.

by the way check my profile for my web site for trail pics, the link to john's page is pretty good too.

Try to keep the tires in the 10.50 wide range or beef up the front axles, You would need Birfeld rings.
the axles are suzuki no dana etc here. (Unless you add them.) Lockers are easy to install just check the
lash after. RRO has a nice front bumber too. Good luck with RRO, Glenn's speed in getting orders out
really is not at all constant (You could wait awhile.)
