Sorry to hijack this post somewhat but this is a relevant question.
I see you are running 30x9.5 on your rig and using .25 wheel spacers. Is this just to keep the tires off the body when turning or is there not enough clearance overall?
I just finished cobbing together some old trackers and kicks to make myself a street vehicle (4x4 in winter, convertible in summer) and I plan to swap over a set of 30x9.5 bridgestone duelers on std backspace steel wheels from my sami for the winter. I dont want to lift/trim at all if its not completely necessary, but I could go with the coil spring spacers from RRO if needed for a little extra height and wheel spacers if I have to. A tiny amount of rubbing at full lock is OK if its the body or inner fender, I can BFH or trim to get that to work.
For Chris Brown: A Sidekick/Tracker might be for you based on your intended purposes. Here's how I see it:
PLace a percentage on Street and Offroad use/importance. If your more heavily weighted on street driving, then get a Tracker or Sidekick. Its larger inside, rides and handles alot better and has more power in stock form. You can build it for very mild offroading without spending a fortune but making it into a serious offroad runner will cost you a lot of $
If your percentages slant towards offroading, then go for a samurai. They are very capable offroad without any mods and are cheap and easy to mod into a pretty serious wheelin truck. On the street they ride like crap unless you spend a lot of $ on new suspension, have a real lack of power, especially if you increase tire size, handle relatively poorly and have a real serious lack of space inside unless you never carry anything but yourself.
I have ended up with one of each. I started with a sami that I tried to build simultaneously into a nice street truck and a nice offroad truck. I finally realized I couldn't do both on the same truck to my satisfaction, so I got a trackick together to use on the road and retired the sami to offroading duty with a planned larger buildup over the winter.
That's how I see it.
