Almost complete interior (its pretty nice for a sami)

I posted this a week or so ago but didn’t have any information so here you go. It’s a great little rig it will go just about anywhere and if it does get stuck you and a fiend can lift it out. I daily dive this in the summer here in Houghton it drives decent , just about what you would expect for a bigger samurai. The reason I want to sell it is im looking for a small truck to do the same thing too. I have a bunch of extra parts that can go with it. If you have any questions shoot me an email at ahschwenk@gmail.com.
I have to get $3500 out of it, that’s what I bought it for and I have put endless amounts into it. I am open for trades if it is a decent small truck.

It flexs alright considering the wheelbase, those springs were to soft for heavy jeep as they would settle them out but they work good on samis.
