Re: Lift for Looks
Thanks everyone for the suggestions, but I'm still looking for some info on lifting the body. I mentioned before that I'm not touching the suspension on this one, I'm just looking for some lift for appearance sake. This is one of mine that stays on the road. But now I'd also like to hear about the crash worthiness that was mentioned. I guess my opinion is that Samurais are, as my girlfriend calls it, "tuna cans" anyway. In other words they don't really offer a lot of crush space. Any accident severe enough to part it from it's frame is probably too severe to matter. In addition, it seems everyone here that's lifted theirs has added some body lift as well. I'd be interested to hear what you think, and also what about any experiences with commercially made lifts. I'm not looking to do any fabrication, just install the pre made kit. (I know it's easy to fab up something but a health/medical situation prevents that)
Are there any problems I may encounter with the lift, like the coolant hose situation mentioned earlier, or gaps that need to be filled etc.
