1987 JLX Suzuki Samurai 4x4 restored , SPOA lift done correctly with over the top steering , extended brake lines, and driveline spacers. Wheelbase extended 1.5" Tires are 33x 12.50 x 15 BF Goodrich MT radials ( if you are wanting a mud rig tell me at end of auction and i will swap them out for 33" super swampers with good tread ) they are on 15 x 10 aluminum wheels! 

The JLX means it has fancy add ons such as a factory tach dash cluster , chrome bumper, and air conditioning, It also has a Suzuki VIP steering wheel which seems unique ( only one I have ever seen ).

I installed new racing seats which are light weight and comfortable ( I want a set for our Toyota now ).

I installed a new MP3 player , new 6.5" 4 way speakers, 8" truck boxes in back. New Halogen headlights with Halos , new sun visors from Indonesia, new washer bottle, new window laces ( no rattles ), new hood release cable, etc.

The engine was rebuilt with new rings , bearings, gaskets, etc. Good used carb sourced from Florida. Stainless rear view mirrors. Dodge 3/4 ton motor mounts. Electric fan on sensor - kicks on when temp hits halfway mark.New fuel pump , new belts, silicone vacc, hoses , new filters. Good clutch. Good shift 'sheets' excellent shift patterns with no slop! 

Recent paint job - fire engine red , called ' candy apple' by supplier. Similar to Porsche 'guards'. Body was stripped, sanded, and painted. Rust free Arizona car! stainless entry guards emblazoned with ' gulf suzuki'.

Replaced master cylinder. This will be my last Samurai so you will get all the extra paint, parts, and coffee cans full of hardware with this car. 

It drives very clean. The OTT steering and stock springs make it a big improvement. The motor was stamped AAAA and 1111 - perfect machining. I found out after the fact it did not need a rebuild, just new valve seals - but since I had the parts I did it anyhow. It is a great Sammy and turns every head it passes. The back seat could use recovering. I replaced the horn but it still does not blow ( will try to figure it out ),I think the heater hose was not clamped tight but it may be the heater core - I bypassed it for now. I have new heat control cables but have not installed them yet.Would make a great around town cruiser or other. If you want to go on the toughest trails I would suggest the 6.5 crawler gears and a rear locker. It is stock gears and open diffs for now. Otherwise you can put side kick gears in diffs or just cruise it around for fun.I was going to make a rear top bow for it but have not yet. You can get a stainless one on low range web site for $99 and get a full top on ebay for cheap.Please email me questins or call 928-640-0631 8am-9pm mountain time. We are gald to answer any and all questions. Please consider a test drive too. We are on beautiful Lake Powell in Northern Az.

ALSO: replaced door handles and window winders inside and out, Also put in a brite tread aluminum panel kit - see pictures !

Great little car for safari or family buggy and way more practical than a razor, raptor, rhino, etc!

American Suzuki Motors files chapter 11, will no longer sell cars in the United States

Mon, 05 Nov 2012

As much as we knew it was a possibility, we have to say that Suzuki's announcement this afternoon that it is filing chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings caught us a bit off guard. American Suzuki Motor Corporation - the sole distributor of Suzuki automobiles in the United States - will realign its business to focus on motorcycles, ATVs and the marine market.
What does this mean in simple terms? In short, new Suzuki cars and trucks will no longer be sold by Suzuki in the United States once current supplies run out. Period.
Suzuki cites "low sales volumes, a limited number of models in its lineup, unfavorable foreign exchange rates, the high costs associated with growing and maintaining an automotive distribution system in the continental US and the disproportionally high and increasing costs associated with stringent state and federal regulatory requirements unique to the US market."

Suzuki recalling 200K crossovers over airbag woes

Mon, 16 Sep 2013

Suzuki may not be selling any new cars in the US anymore, but there are still plenty of them on American roads. Nearly 200,000 of those will need to be taken off said roads - for a little while, at least.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for 2006-2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara SUVs and 2007-2011 SX4 crossovers due to a faulty airbag sensor. The issue apparently results from the front passenger-side floor mat causing the Occupant Classification System (OCS) sensor to malfunction over time, so whether there's a kid or an adult in the front seat, the airbag could deploy in the event of a crash.
As a result, Suzuki Motor of America is calling in 193,936 vehicles to replace the front passenger-seat cushion assembly. That's a whole lot of cars to recall, but it comes as no big surprise. Owners can expect to be notified in October. Full details in the recall announcement below.

Next Suzuki SX4 spotted again

Wed, 05 Sep 2012

Thanks to a sketch of the Suzuki S-Cross concept, we can already see the styling direction that the next-generation SX4 will take, and Suzuki is still hard at work on the production version of the car as evidenced by this latest batch of spy shots. These photos look almost identical to those captured back in July, but we see a little more detail at the rear of the car and get a better idea of the next SX4's proportions.
With the baggy camouflage lifted up at the rear of this prototype, we can see that the SX4 replacement has a very Mazda-chic look to it with downward-angled taillights that stretch into the liftgate. Aside from this, the big news is that we're finally getting a sense of the new SX4's size. Suzuki's press release attached to the Paris-bound S-Cross sketch said that the SX4 replacement would be growing to the compact segment rather than being a subcompact like the current car. Recent reports indicate that the next version of this car will be sized closer to the Grand Vitara, and in these pictures, you can definitely see how much the car has grown.
Still unknown is when we can expect to see the production version of the new SX4, or what will be inside it (available turbo power?), but hopefully Suzuki will not delay things like it did with the Kizashi and its numerous concepts.
