BTW, that 4 cylinder duramax turbo diesel would sure make for an interesting swap in a Samurai. If only money was no object.....muwhahahaha

4Wheeler magazine put one in a jeep a few years ago. Worked great in that but at 520 lbs it is ti heavy for a Samurai.

Yea, no doubt. LOL though as for some reason when I read this the first thing to pop into my head was; how cool or odd would it be to create a mid-engine Sami to distribute the weight.

Well, I think I just have a weak battery, and the radio just accelerated the draining issue. With having to drop the baby off at the care provider, the Samurai isn't getting driven much this winter. Sidekick is, though! I still haven't had a chance to see if my new tires fit. I did get one mounted onto my Samurai rim, though. One step at a time!

TGIF yall! Will hopefully get to complete the build out of my rebuilt motor this weekend and with any luck, install it. First though, have to drill and tap that water log mount hole after work this evening.

CBs are awesome. Still have a few and a set from early nineties that have magnetic antennas to attach to the roof of the car. I donít use them often however I feel like they still have a place and purpose even today.

Got my water log mount drilled and tapped over the weekend. Also ran a tap in all the other mounts on the block. Crazy how much junk came out of those threads. Some cheap insurance and peace of mind going forward with my build. While I have everything out I decided to prime and paint the motor mount brackets and the alternator bracket. Also replacing old fuel hose and in general, anything that looks worn or rotten. Iím thinking about replacing the old heater hoses with some generic gates heater hose but not sure if thatís a good idea or not.

I got my factory wheel with 235/75/15 put on last night to see if it'd even fit. It fits, but I don't think I could really drive it without it rubbing the bumper during flexing. I pretty much knew that'd be the case and now I'm working myself into probably getting some 2" lift leafs. I honestly don't foresee getting tires too big, so this should suit me just fine.
