Default 92 amigo sas

so here is what i started with a 1992 isuzu amigo i picked up for 430$ with a blown head gasket , it had a 2 inch bodylift on it so i put some 31's on it





then added a smittybuilt xrc8 winch to it with a custom winch mount



got pretty bored with that quick so i did a spring over in the rear and balljoint flip in the front and added some 33 procomp mud terrains



then i picked up some toy axles pretty shure 83 front and a 90 4cyl rear

more pics to come

You make your own brackets, or is that a SAS kit?
What springs you using?

Man- I've been wanting to build one of those for a few years now. They always looked to be about the perfect wheelbase as long as it wasn't lifted too high.

What is the wheelbase on it anyway?

Your's will look sweet once it's got the new rubber under it.

Looking forward to the progress on this one!!!
