after years of searching for a used hard top for my tracker, I found one. pretty excited about it. it is in decent shape. it is hard to believe how rare the used ones are. now that I have one they will be around every corner.
Iíve seen some here and there but usually they were asking way too much for them and in some cases, more than new. The others were in really rough shape.

I finally got my 28" 235/75R15 tires mounted on and took the Sammi out on the trails. Ride is rough, need a lift, but I have no tire drag and had a ton of fun taking the sisters-in-law out. I did have to remove the front bumper and mount and need to get a heavy duty one. For now, my turn signals are tied up to the grille with electric fence wire!

I have a decent lift on mine but one of these days I hope to do a ZOR escort YJ kit with SPUA. Maybe one day Iíll have the means to fund it.

I'm running that kit...  I highly recommend it.  I wanted to keep the COG as low as possible.  So, I'm SPUA with 2.5" OME YJ springs and 31's on 15x8 wheels with 2.5" backspacing.  I had to trim the front fenders just a bit.  The flex is SO NICE (after the springs broke in a little).  Keeps the rubber on the rocks.  Mini spool rear and Lock-Rite front.  The rig's capabilities are beyond my driving skills/courage.  It'll take me where I want to go.

I have a decent lift on mine but one of these days I hope to do a ZOR escort YJ kit with SPUA. Maybe one day Iíll have the means to fund it.

That's the thing. I want a lift, but I only want to buy one once. YJ is the smoothest without a doubt, but I'm not sure I need it. I want the CG as low as I can get it and to be able to drive it on the road without it getting too squirley; it's not going to be a hardcore off-road machine or anything.

I'm with you on that.  A stock samurai goes 98% of the places I want.   I want to keep mine lowish, and add some lockers.  I think that will get me the the latest 2%

I have a friend who rode in my Samurai and got hooked, then got his own. 87 tintop. It's got a small lift on it, but I'm not sure what it is. The only thing I could find is a sticker on the leafs that says "Made in Canada". Is it about a 3"? I did notice it rides noticeably smoother than my stock Samurai. 28" tires.

For me, a small lift that'll fit 30" tires is the perfect setup. The YJ SPUA would just be the cadillac option so to speak; just enough lift while smoothing the ride out. Or at least imho anyway.

Stoked to say that I've added a ZOR rock smasher and low profile winch bumper to my Suzuki arsenal a few weeks ago. Got the rock smasher scuffed, cleaned, etch-primed and painted and it's ready to install in a day or two when I find time to go to the parts store and get a pitman arm puller loaner. Did the same for the bumper and took my time scuffing and cleaning it. Spent weekend before last doing gradual/multiple coats of etching primer then this past weekend applied multiple coats of flat black enamel. Left it hanging to dry for 24 hours thinking I would install the next evening but to my dismay, a quarter of the paint sloughed off like nothing when just taking a glove across it. I am all about DIY but I talked to a local powder coater who for $150 will blast it clean again and put a matte black coat on it for me. Was trying to avoid going this route but just want it done.

Hope everyone out there is doing good! Don't forget to vote - Trump FTW!
