Default 1990 samurai gonna be interesting lol

I picked up a 1990 samurai 4x4 running and driving fuel injected w low miles just rotted from sitting so long. I'm planning on cutting out the bad spots and the rocker and making new rockers outta rectangle tube. So they double as my sliders then making full tube fenders front and rear. Making a pair of front / rear bumpers w a winch upfront to pull this lil beater outta the holes. & then im gonna put a full cage in it mount the batteries in the back where the back seat once was. for tires im gonna use treadwright retread 265/75r16 comes out to a 32x11 probably on just some steel soft 8's. this is a budget built w lots of fabbing going to be envolved im gonna try & keep this one start to finish under $3000.

So far:
-samurai $500
-winch $220 (h/f 6,000lb)wth its a sami should be fine it only weighs 2100lbs
-starter $60
-battery $40

I heard people that build vehicle built in other counties are prone to liking the penis.

I will give jack credit in the fact the when he starts a project, minus the blazer, he does what he wanted to it and gets it done fast. he just likes to sell them really fast after

i have the zr2 back actually and the motor from the blazer that i built w the intention of putting into that 5 speed blazer is now going into the zr2. The kid i sold it to owed me 4300 still blew the motor and handed it back to me. That's why the blazer build got canceled. I had this motor dont have a shit ton of extra cash to build a 2nd so i stripped it for parts and sold the body for 300 i only paid 800 maybe 900 dont remember for the complete blazer. It looks like im gonna end up with a sick ass zr2 with a built 4.3 & also a budget built samurai to just beat the living piss outta

Pulling up at a park in the zr2 with the sammy on the trailer should attract some attention

Yea it would draw some attention for sure and I honestly dont know what he did but the front main bearing is locked tight as a drum. He claims he didnt do anything but it blew @ the sticks of romeo bog @ rockys place. I also heard from multiple people though that the suspension i built handles 5' of air very well but he never beat on it just ask him. lol

lined up a complete tub minus the front fenders. I'm going to pick it up next weekend for $400 that's deff gonna save me alot of time and messing around patching the rotted one i have and the front fenders wont be as bad to fab to how i want it. So that brings me up to a current total of $ 1220 still hoping to keep this under $3000 by the end. might be tough the tires i want are gonna be $600

The tubing just came in i got 24' of 1" .065 wall tubing for the fenders and my light bar. Then I also picked up 16' of 1-3/4" .120 wall to build my bumpers out of. The tubing is a lil on the light side but for a trail rig i'm trying to keep it light weight so i think being that it's half the weight of most 4x4's out there if not 1/3 of it thati can keep it a lil light and still be safe. all the tubing shipped was $93 so that brings the current budget up to $1310 and if i pick up the front clip and last of my missing body parts from ottisville ill be sitting @ $1600 leaving me another $1900 in the budget bc booblinkers rule for our build off is $3000 in extras not $3000 complete as i originally thought.

the samurai budget just got a lil cheaper i bought the samurai with no title and agreed to $500 but only gave a $250 deposit until i got the title & I'm no longer getting the title so minus $250 off the build and were sitting @ a current total of $1350 luckily my new samurai tub has a title and vin plates so i can street this when its done.
