Hello everyone,
A little about me I've been driving offload with all types of vehicles for as long as I can remember. About three years ago I traded a Banshee for a Samurai and have been building on it off and on. Currently I'm finishing my pole barn so I can have a dedicated shop area. As soon as that done I plan to finish the Sami. My plan is to finish installing the engine and trans from the BMW 318ti donor car along with Dana 44's that I got from a good friend and do a link suspension. I've attached a pic so you all can see. I look forward to your input. Thanks. Click image for larger version

I work as a firefighter so I know all about being thick skinned. Thanks for the heads up.

Welcome. This board is full of assholes and retards. It's also full of people that are very smart and good at what they do. Tread lightly at first (pun) and get to know the regulars. Dumb mistakes and bad attitudes will be attacked like a chicken leg thrown into a tank of piranha. Also, the 318Ti motor looks good. When the cam timing changes at high rpm, the little thing will go ape shit.

One last thing, read this:

Thanks all. I can't wait to start working on it. There is a lot to do still. The electrical on the pole barn should be done next week After that comes the two post lift and drywall. So by the end if the month I should be ready to go to work on the Sami.
