New to Suzuki BBS, Have a few Questions...

Hey all, I have been hanging around checking out all the good info! I am an EX-Jeep man (cj7,cj5,yj,& 2 TJs)--my Dad has an 88.5 Sami that I can remember trying to talk myself out of liking back in the Jeep days. I am now trying to find a decent Sami to buy/will be buying one with in a month if I can find one. Couple of ? though, I have found a couple late models that have no ac--live in TX and cant live w/o ac--will the older model ac units (the whole works) fit in the newer model w/o much trouble? Anyone live in my area who knows where I can find parts? I have really enjoyed all the info, alot of my questions have been answered just by the "search". I look forward to posting again---esp. after I get a zuki!!!
Thanks!

Re: New to Suzuki BBS, Have a few Questions...

welcome aboard our happy lil family man. i dont know of any reason that the ac wont swap from a early model to a late model zuk. if you got a line on a late model efi zuk, i would jump on it even with no air. that efi is sweeeeet on one. as far as parts your way, i have no idea, there are a few fellers on here from texas though, prolly need to hook up wit them.

Easiest thing to do is get a Sam with onboard AC, But Sam with AC are hard to find.

I was ready fly anywhere to buy one and drive it home.

Search Net for Sam with AC and hardtop found only four for sale in all of North America. One in Canada,one in Calif. one in Tenn. incrediably other just up road from me in Ohio.

Sam found using excite.com classified.

Did this 1999 as net as gotten bigger and better you find
one near you. good luck...

I know it's hot in Texas but when you turn thgat AC on you're gonna feel like your hung up on something and your Sami will slow to a crawl. I've had 2 with AC and it wasn't worth the trouble of finding them.

just my $.02

Seen many neg post low power output on Samurai my Sam has
plenty of power.

Can only speak about power of Sam in picture pic shows front pass side but what you do not see still tied to rear frame is 1" rope this little Sam snapped it instantly while pulling out new huge extended cab ford pickup truck that was stuck in mud last week. Replace rope with two heavy duty tow straps Sam dug in and pull truck from its mud trap.

Samurai in pic is pure stock, when AC on max and stuffed with 200lbs hand tools and power tools note very little power loss run 55-60Mph easy and normal.

Use cheapest fuel you can get, stock Sam like it.
Use best trans and gear lub that money can buy.

Re: New to Suzuki BBS, Have a few Questions...

Going slow and being cool are beter than going a little faster and being hot.I don't see that much difference in having the a/c on or off,its still slow.If you don't get one with a/c its not hard to put on yourself,takes about 3 hours to do the install.If you find a unit in a junkyard or other palce DO take it out youself that way you know how it goes back in and you get all the fastner's and fitting that way.If I was looking a installing one today I'd also look into a 134A retro-fit as R-12 has really gone sky hi this year
