The x-90 is essentially the same as a 16v Sidekick, but with a different body. Everything that can be done to a 95+ 16v can be done to the 90.

Re: Whats the low down on the X 90?

I was thinking the same thing. I came acrossed two last week in the middle of nowhere for sale. A black one and a weird purple one. I figure some day when I have time I will stop and look at them. But, I was wondering the same question. What can or can not be done with these little vehicles? Would be a neat off-roader for the wife... Wonder if she ever reads this BBS....

Re: Whats the low down on the X 90?

My sister has had an X-90 for about 9 months, and she absolutely adores it. It's a blast to drive too. I love that little thing!

Until now, it's been stock. But thanks to my influence, she hasn't been able to leave it alone. Since it has the same chassis as teh SWB Sidekick/Tracker, any suspension components that'll work for the 'Kick will work for the X-90. We installed the Old Man Emu 1.5-inch lift to upgrade the tires 2.5 inches from stock 195/60-15 street tires to 225/70-15 Yokohama Geolandar AT+. Ground clearance, traction, handling, wheel travel, and ride quality have improved substantially. And it's gone from a cute little "car" to a tough-looking little brute.

As always, with any Suzuki modification I make (on my truck or my sister's) you can expect a full write-up on Off-Road.com in the near future.

Re: Whats the low down on the X 90?

Glenn at RRO said you guys might doing a build up artcile on the X using the OME lift kit. I would really be interested in such a review/install as I have been thinking about adding one to my X.

On a related note, there is a guy on the X-90 BBS on yahoo that is in the process of putting on a 3" Calmini sidekick lift a 2" body lift 30x12.50 MT Baja Claws on 15x10 MT Classics. He is going to swap out to a lower gearing using sidekick parts. Should be a nice ride when he gets done.
