Default New samurai

I was sick of dealing with the rust on mine, bought a roller.

Now I need to figure out how I want to build it. Plan is at least to combine it with what works on mine then move on from there.

You could put a 2004 4 cylinder drive train in it for 700

Wait until people start wrecking the new Focus RS and swap the drive train, then you'll have drift mode.

I've heard the v6's don't really fit well, I would like to do a 2.0l swap but that might have to wait a while.

I already run the 1.6l FI so that is an easy swap. I may just throw my 1.3 in just to see how long it can go.

Yes, but I'm not sure how many parts, all depends on what engine and what axles I use.

I thought you meant 2004 tracker or vitara stuff. Jeep stuff will not work for many reasons ranging from wwii to length of drivetrain.

That's what I used on mine. Sometimes it can dent your sheetmetal behind your hinge etc. Using some heat to loosen up the factory loctite, or cutting a slot with an angle grinder then using a large flathead sometimes works too.

My old one doesn't have any factory picture left, most everything was apart about ten years ago when I did the body swap.
