*Also included is all my stock of miscellaneous Suzuki and Toyota parts that I have left. You’ll need a truck to carry the stuff. 

*Clean & clear AZ title in hand registered to me.

*Please keep in mind that while the vehicle is currently registered and street legal, you’ll not want to use it as a daily driver or register it in a county that has emissions testing requirements. Its purpose is limited off-highway use. 

*The gearing is super low. So, bring a trailer if you want to drive above 50mph to get home.

*The rig was built around running 33X10 inch tires, so yes, the 35’s rub.

* The motor was rebuilt less about 5000 miles ago in 2009. Because I’m crazy/retentive, I did a motor refresh last year that included a head gasket, all the seals & gaskets on the front of the motor, radiator flush, new thermostat, new spark plugs, new fan clutch, new water pump, new timing belt & tensioner, new belts as well as adjusting the valves.

*All shocks and bump stops were serviced in February of this year. The anti-wrap bar bushings were changed at the same time.

Final Thoughts
I built this rig never intending to sell it. A lot went into its build. Its been around for a while and evolved from the intent of being a daily driver to a trail rig. Does it weep a bit of oil from the trans and T-case? Sure, but not enough to leave spots on the driveway. It’s a Sami that been wheeled after all. That said, this rig is in tip top, ready to wheel condition. Do the upgrades, don’t do the upgrades, no matter. It’s ready to roll as is. Or go crazy, back half it or turn it into a buggy…all the parts are pretty much there. 

Asking $6500. 

The only trade I’d be interested in is a late model, lower-ish mileage RT or SRT Dodge Magnum, Subaru Outback or Forester (can add cash on my end depending on offer).
