O.K here we go......... I played with a few Samurai and during that time...I realized that they had 2x4 rectangular tubing frame. So when I started building my truck, I located a frame from a friend and started cutting off everything that I didn't need. I also figured out that if I reverse the bottom spring plates on the rearend, I could move the rearend back 6 1/2" and move the shocks from the back to the front keeping the same attachment points. I also installed a mid 90's S-10 4X4 rearend. (I even added the free swaybar that came with it) And used monroe 5752 shocks (for VW split window....I think) I am now getting the parts together to do a "Zipper" style quarter elliptical frontend that will extend the axle 12" to 16" out past the end af the frame. Overall wheelbase should be very close to 115".
