To swap or not to swap
OK, I'll post this here, cuz on the pirate board I'll be flammed hardcore. I was going to do a Toyota axle swap in to my '88. All I got is a '85 rear axle without the center section. I got to thinking about the money I don't have to do this and wanted some opinions.
#1- Stay with Zuk axles and add the:
$700 Hawk Suzuki gears(5.12) and Hybred rear housing
$260 long Ind. front axle shafts
$160 front locker...........OR
#2- swap in Toyotas:
Rear end:
$365 toyota third member
$235 lockright
Front end:
$200 stock Toy axle(used)
$214 gears
$235 lockright
$649 All-Pro steering
This is what I'm looking at. Either way I go I'm putting in Toyota power steering. I'm planning on runnig 33" tires, but I have yet to get hung up bad with my 31"s and I can live with them if the Zuk axles hold up. Well....what do you guys think????

88 Zuk
locked and loaded

Yeah, that would be the smart way to go! Lots of people think that if the engine is very bad or it won't run, that they can sale it for under $500! Works for me!

Re: To swap or not to swap
Well, depends on how 'hard core' you're gonna ride that thing. The Zuke axles should hold up ok with 31's. A stock 1.3 engine and 33's would probably be ok too, but that depends on how hard you are on it. A larger engine and you need to be looking at more strength. Toyota axles are a good idea, but whatever you do, be sure it's the way you want to go, that's alot of money to be spending and then doing it over later. Scott Trester - '88.5 Suzuki Samurai
