Are they still zuks?

Dont take this the wrong way cuz im a big fan of the built rigs. But, when all you have left of a sami is the body i dont think they should be calles suzuki's anymore. Theyre still samurais cuz thats what the body is but i dont think theyre zuks. Its kinda like building a ford streetrod but stuffin a small block chevy in for motivation. My scout runs full width dana's but theyre from another international therefore its still an international.

Im not postin this to make anybody mad so please dont take it that way. Im jus wondering what ya'lls opinion is on this.

Re: Are they still zuks?

If you want to get anal about it, changing the axles is no big deal. Dana is not IH. Hell, in South America the TracKick has a Dana rear axle....

You can buy a LWB in Europe with a Peugot diesel...that is from Suzuki directly.

Isuzu and Jeep ran the GM 2.8...

Toyota and Jeep run the Aisin AX-5 5 speed transmission...

Dodge doesn't own Cummins...

You see where I'm going...

Does this mean that a 4.3 powered HT running wagoneer axles is no longer wlecome at Suzuki runs? I'd hope not...

Re: Are they still zuks?

I'm with Billy Bob, Hell most J**Ps are not nothing more than a shell and I bet you still call it a J**P. I still run all suzuki parts but I would gladly run with a fellow owner of a Samurai even if it did have the following
4.3 Chevy
700r tranny
Atlas II t-case
Ford 9" axles
some wild coil suspension
Damn wake me up I'm starting to drool!

Re: Are they still zuks?

Mine hasn't been referred to as a Suzuki by me in years... it's a Zuki... and no matter what I do to it, it will always be a Zuki. Is it a Suzuki? No... yer right. There is something to be said for maintaining the Suzuki'NESS of yer rig, and I plan on getting another and keeping it Suzuki'FIED. But this one I have now with the 2.9 and c4 tranny will always be a Zuki eventhough it's no longer a Suzuki. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

It sure as hell ain't a Jeep!
