Started with a b-e-a-utiful rust free Samurai. All original with a cool weber carb, exhaust, and header. We started to tear down!!!

Got that little old 1.3 out of the way to make room for the 2.0 going in.   [thumbsup]

Cleaned up the used motor and I've got to do some oil gaskets and await a clutch before we drop this bad boy in. 
General Chit Chat / It's raining snakes
Walked into the shop today.   Sat down and thought I heard it raining.  Looked up and there still is a 1' rattle snake sliding around on my clear plastic ceiling.  

I can confirm I was not planning on dumping a load into my pants, but I do believe that the time has come for a change of underwear.

What should I do with it?

General Chit Chat / I don't know what to bring?!?!?
Seeing how we are always in a time crunch this year I'm only bringing one rig.  So I'm asking you guys what I should bring to wheel at zuwharrie?

General Chit Chat / Uwharrie Stables offroad course.

Just so I don't have anyone yelling that I'm not putting enough buggy content in that build...

I'm just starting a thread on what we have done to the shop. 
First we started with a storage trailer, then emptied 4 bays of a local storage building. That was covered in 1" of dirt.

Well I finally broke down in the samurai for the last time. An hour a way from home and I blew an alternator and something went haywire in the electrical system. So Ive had enough long distance samurai drive, and I found a smoking deal on a dually.  [thumbsup]

96 cummins with a 5speed!!!
It was really cheap so I figure I can fix it and paint it for less than most trucks cost. Spent all day cleaning and fixing little stuff. Like the radio would stay on, and the trailer wiring. But anyways, I thought I'd post something of a build thread on it. Seeing how I didn't do any for the beater.  [black_s]

Also like to point out that this weighed more that 2 fully loaded samis full of tools and parts along with a bed full of tires.

So is it still gonna be the third weekend in April, gotta put in time at work.  [thumbsup]
Has anyone done this wiring harness themselves?

Ive gotten rid of all the ac stuff and lights, but I dont know what else to trim down seeing how im using a 3 speed.
General Chit Chat / The Ack Show!!!

Samurai Tech / Body lift or 2 inch soft ride springs.
I am at the point where I AM going to 33's so I just picked up the 4;30s and need to decide on what to do to clear them.

I love how soft my wore out broke in 5 packs are, because they don't wrap at all and ride really smooth

BUT, in doing so I have a turbo setup off Samtracks Tracker, which needs either the motor relocated, or a body lift to clear the turbo correctly with no cutting to the hood, witch may be done with going back to stock mounts,  I Loathe the day I bought the Petroworks mounts.  

So it comes down to should I relocate the motor and springs, or body lift and keep on trucking.
General Chit Chat / The awesome power of a 1.3!!!
Well when you turbo it and make 350 hp 

General Chit Chat / Ultamite Tow Rig

Had the opportunity to let a small group of people come wheel at the family hunting grounds last weekend, DeVinney and Ecoast couldn't make it, but samtrack and Paul came out and we had a blast.  And just to let you all know. My Sami barely made it off the main roads, I just road with jason the entire time.
General Chit Chat / Craigslist GOLD
