Most of you have seen my latest motor, had it about 3 months now. Gone back to my roots with another suzuki 4x4 smile This one won't be getting b.astardised like the last one though... much tease

It's standard bar a minor fatboy kit, an A bar and some side steps (or "rock sliders" as I call them)

Me being me I've been off roading it a bit, and recently I borrowed some bigger tyres on alloy wheels from mike (my little bro) for an off road event this weekend. Pics from that can be seen here: click me (dial-up viewers put the kettle on) The white samurai is my old one, now owned by my bro.


Here's some of my own pics:









C+C's welcome smile

Oh, err it's now minus the mud flaps as they got in the way today, and plus a small, hardly noticable modification to the back bumper after using my right foot too much on a steep incline (skipped sideways into a rock smack )

The back bumper's not a problem, sounds worse than it looks, and everything still works.

Most sites are pay and play, that one's in Mouldsworth quarry, inbetween Chester and Helsby and costs 25 for the day. Open on the first sunday of every month. There's a small site in Bromborough that's free that I'll have to show you sometime. I think it's council development land but it's been untouched in years, there's plenty for 4x4s and crossers alike.

As for future mods, I don't want to do much as I'll be returning it to standard to sell before I go to Oz next September. I can get an easy-to-fit 1.25" lift kit for it for 100, as soon as that's on I'll have some bigger tyres underneath it. I want to install a CB radio too as they come in really handy for off roading days.

Main aim is to stop it looking like a hairdressers car!

You still thinking about a Samurai? If so stop thinking and start doing!

maybe not a samurai, but a 4x4 of some kind. The only thing thats holding me back is a garage to store my beemer whilst im using it, cas I aint paying for insurance for both at the same time!

Lol, me neither mate! Hence another reason why I don't wanna do much to it. What I've got lined up will drastically improve the off road performance and get things sweet in the looks dept. too, so I can have a little play about in it every now and then and still keep it looking smart for road use and cruises... or that's the plan doh
