Brand new member so wanted to introduce myself. I live in north Texas and have an early 88 Samurai that I bought as my first vehicle in 1992 shortly before getting my DL. After getting it I saved some money and had a local spring shop add a leaf and coupled that with some extended shackles to get enough clearance for some 30" tires. I then swapped the ring and pinions out with some richmond 4.56 but other than that, it's all stock. Unfortunately only after enjoying it for 5-6 years I had a battery strap break which caused the battery to short on the hood and in turn, caused the body to ground thru the clutch, accelerator and parking brake cables- essentially melting them. Sadly, after that happened I troubleshot some but felt overwhelmed and ended up draining fuel and storing it all these years convinced that it was beyond my skill-set to fix and beyond my budget to have a pro diagnose. I've certainly always wanted to get my Sami running again and recently made my mind up that I was going to do just that so I started digging around on forums and tech manuals. What I found as a potential cause was literally a 3" long ground wire that attached to the body right at the battery box. The wire had completely broken off on both ends and must've fell out when the battery strap broke so I had no idea that it even existed. This weekend I bought some new heavy gauge battery cables and a nice fat ground strap and wired them all in and dropped a battery in it. Got inside and turned the key and low and behold, dash lights and buzzer and got it to turn over. Overjoyed is an understatement but also a little sad seeing as for the past almost 20 years, one little wire has kept me from enjoying my Sami. As mentioned though, I'd made my mind up a few weeks ago to get it running again and in addition to reading troubleshooting stuff had come across ZOR's site. Looking at ZOR and others, I felt that the products offered were what I'd go with when I got the electrical bug worked out. So last week I called and got to speak with MY and was completely blown away. It felt like talking with an old friend and the knowledge MY has along with his willingness to share and go over options after asking getting details about my rig and where I want to take it was so refreshing. I won't claim to know all the heavy hitters in the ZUK world but there's no doubt that MY is passionate and is someone who loves ZUKs- but is down to earth and willing to help anyone. In this day and time that is rare and most people won't give you the time of day let alone talk with you at length; so a big thank you to MY. Now that I have the electrical gremlin worked out I'm putting my build list together and can hardly wait to get started refreshing and upgrading my Sami now that I'm able to. It's great to be here and get to participate in the community and hopefully I can help or inspire someone else! Take care yall!

Hello people.
If you don’t have anything supportive to say, zip it. What we have here is successful communication between a young lady and her Samurai. The Samurai is therapeutic and a way for the community to help in Renee’s adventure in what we hope will be a normal life someday. This is not your normal young person. She has proven to be talented and hard working. 2 virtues often missing in the youth of today. So as she asks for technical support and advice, show her we sincerely care and with little effort on our part we can make a big difference in one persons life.

Was going to post a picture of my service truck after a day in the mud... It won't load for some reason.
Anyway, how many jobs can you have where you get paid to go wheeling?
