Hi everyone,

New to the group and looking forward to getting out for a run with everyone. I have a 1999 Tracker with light mods just to get into off-roading. I grew up driving my fathers Samurai in the woods and have been itching to getting back into it.

Sadly I work 4-on 4-off shiftwork so I may miss some events.

Looks like you tried. Love the solid axle swap.

Thank you, I still have to finish welding up a front bumper and mounting my winch. As well as installing a rear spool that is currently on my nightstand.

nice rig 🙂 i love being spooled

It should help a lot, especially in the ice we have now. Not looking forward to taking the brakes apart for installation.

Idk if it's like the Sami, but I did the brake backing plate mod, so I can pull the axles without having to take the backing plate off and open up the brakes...helps a lot for wheel bearing and gear work.

The whole rear end appears to be the same as my fathers Samurai besides the spring set-up. I will look into it, thank you.
