Re: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Reminds me of the time this jerk told me his stock 2wd S-10 could outdo my Zuki on the trail. The audacity of the alpha-male attitude of typical Heap owners. Just because it says Chevy, Ford, or Jeep on the front doesn't mean it's invincible, or even able. It just means it was expensive. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Let's not get into how expensive things are on vehicles, this Zuk has them all beat from what I have seen.

What axle was it, 10 bolt?

Hey, don't take my post to mean all large 4x4 owners are like that. I didn't mean to make a blanket statement. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

No, I didn't mean that, I just meant that my Zuk has been anything BUT cheap whenever I've looked into parts. Bearings and seals are expensive, carbs, carb related garb (sounds kinda catchy), ignition coil, brakes, and it seems like just about anything else I can find.

The only thing I have seen that's cheaper is the exhaust pipe (not muffler or cat), lockers, and some aftermarket stuff.

Yes, some other SUV's are more expensive on parts, but from my personal experiences Jeep and Scout are a lot cheaper, not sure about other brands.

Re: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I dunno, I've watched Samurai prices starting get outrageous in relative terms, but I still get gearing in both diffs, t-case, and a good header for what my buddy paid for one t-case set in his TJ.

That could all change if people keep insisting that Sams be widely puiblicized and covered every week in 4WD rags. Oy vey!

Re: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

A ROLLING STONE GATHERS NO MOSS?!?!? I'm a Chevy fan and that's all that I've owned for most of my life. My first 87 S-10 yakked it's pinion gear at 165,000. Yes I've owned 1 HEEP and it really was a HEEP, what in the hell was AMC thinking with that 258? Ihated that truck from day 1. JEEPN no offense but once bitten twice shy. But I am looking at a Scout though. The latest S-10 nightmare taught me that I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER S-10! It's ZOOKS from here on out! My new tow rig will probably be an ISUZU rollback diesel.Are all of the Scouts convertables?

Re: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Eventually I will own a vintage Bronco, or a Scout... I like how muchthey resemble a Zuki with the targa removed.
