I know it looks scary but chopped the back end off today. gonna flatbed style the rear with a couple crossbar tubing for support.Next is removing the rusted front fenders not sure if they make a flat tube fender for a samurai like they do for yj's but i may have to fabricate some.

Great Offroad vehicles.

I had a chance to buy one (well...sorta )
A gentleman I worked with bought one for $600. I offered him a little more, and he says "ill take $6k for it"

I know, cool story bro.

Yeah i had been looking for one for a couple of years. They were always priced crazy high or they sold what seamed like instantly.
I took the fender flares and bumpers off today. didnt get a chance to take any pics of it but there was alot of rust underneath them. So looks like im gonna be doing alot of trimming.
Try #2 for pic upload
