This is an unmolested 1988 Suzuki Samurai.   The suspension has not been cut up. raised or modified.   It is driven almost daily. so the mileage is accurate as of 6/1/2013.

This Samurai has the original 1. 3L engine. 5-speed transmission. and 4-wd transfer.

The car was recently painted (within the last 3 years) and has new ABS body graphics installed.  

The entire interior was stripped and Rhino coated.

The convertible top is less than 3 years old and in near perfectly-new condition.

 

Here is what I have done (just in last two years. ):

I had PetroWorks do a complete major tune-up and replaced the catalytic converter and they smog'd the car (in 2012).

All five (5) tires are new (less than 4000 miles) Guardsman Plus Radials. from Sears.   They include wheel locks on all tires (including the spare).

All shocks were replaced with Rancho brand nitrogen gas shocks.   The steering stabilizer was replaced with an oversized Rancho stabilizer.

I added the PetroWorks 15-gallon poly fuel tank and hardware.

I added the hard to find windshield fold-down kit.

I added the Hi-Power headlight wiring harness and relay kit.

I added the "Clicky Starter" Relay Kit.

I installed the engine hood hold-down handle's.

I installed the 105-amp GM alternator kit.

I added and wired a third brake light (from a 1991 Suzuki/Chevy Tracker).

I re-installed the missing rear seat and hardware (including seat belts).

I have replaced all five (5) of the inner panels with black aluminum diamond plate (installed with 8-32 stainless steel Allen screws).

I installed new complete carpeting kit.

 

So what doesn't work. ?

The radio is complete crap.   It blows the fuse.

The inclinometer ball is spun around and does not indicate the angle of the road you're on (who cares. ?).

The windshield wiper sprayer hose (or sprayers nozzles) are plugged.

The driver-side headrest is broken.

 

If I was going to keep this car. what would I do. ?

I would re upholster the three (3) seats.   The front seats are fine. but the back seat really needs a new cover. and I would prefer that they match.

I would install the 1. 6L engine.   I even have one completely disassembled (and on an engine stand) that the buyer will have the first-shot at buying.

I would rebuild the trans and transfer case.

I would replace the radio.

I would replace that stupid inclinometer-altimeter assembly with a oil pressure. oil temp and ammeter gauge-set.

 

The buyer will also have to put up with my crying when he picks it up!
