My offroad rig

For years I have spent riding ATVs until a couple of years ago when the accident bug bit the wife and we made the decision to try something else. We now wheel in a 88 Suzuki Samurai the I built. Here is a pic:

Nice Rig. What's Under The Hood, Did You Change The Drive Train. I Had A Buddy In College Who Put A Small V6 In One And Changed The Tranny And Transfer Case Gearing. He Would Always Put It In Low Low And Walk Beside It To Be Funny.

Looks like you have it fixed up pretty good. Wish I had a Samari instead of my Geo Tracker (same as Suzuki Sidekick)
