Sweet!

Now, Rui, can you just figure out a way to export them to us? How about if you build them for the trail and export to the states as an All-Terrain Vehicle?

It's a fuel injected 1.3 engine, 80 HP
I feel bad about them because they will sooner or later completly replace the sammy for it.
ARB has already got a suspension lift for them as well as an ARB bumper

Re: Jimmy continues samurai legend

I sent a letter to GM legal department concerning Suzuki using the same slotted grill as Jeep since the early 70's. How can DaimlerChrysler/Jeep ignore the Suzuki grill for over 30 years and then selectivly enforce it's trademark against GM/Hummer in 2001?!?! International Scout used the same grill design from 73 to 75.

Because they had more or less slats in the grill. Hummer used the same number.

Basically D/C is looking to go after Hummer to make themselves known, they are in pretty dire straits financially because they've run the company into the ground. Ford used the slat style on their cars back in the teens and twenties, so it's not a Jeep thing anyway, but I think the Fords had 5 slats as well.

Re: Jimmy continues samurai legend

Jeep uses a 7 slotted grill I believe. They don't care about vehicles with more or less. The new hummer uses a very similar 7 vertical slat grill which is what jeep is upset over.
