Plans for another toy - abuse me all you like..
« on: August 12, 2011, 02:35:10 PM »
So I've missed the scratching over rocks, bumping into logs and falling into ruts... And I've come up with a good cheap way I could enjoy all that. Of course I still have no job or money at the moment but that is besides the point. I did title this "plans" after all! :P

So I want to get a Suzuki Sierra, running good but couldn't care less about the body.
Then I want to put front and rear Powertrax 1510 lockers in it. They are $209USD ea.
And then install the 6.5:1 low range gears from Trail Creeper. $500USD.
And stop there. No more. Nope, no massive wheels and tyres. No huge bullbars. No electronic this or that. No engine upgrades. None of that, just simple reliable crawling fun. And it would look stock, so plenty of opportunities to laugh at the Cruisers and Patrols.

I'm thinking it would cost about $2k for the Suzi, then plus postage around $1200 for the parts.

So, unleash your hatred as I contemplate turning to the dark side!

Of course this would just be a toy, not a replacement to my Outback or anything.
Haha, the fun of planning 4wd stuff, haven't done this is a good long while!

This plan is suspended until much later. I'll be getting another MY wagon first and thrashing it to bits. Plan to do that mid way through next year. Then maybe 3 or 4 years down the track get a suzi, or different 4wd. Still want the Outback as my tourer though.

If your looking for another MY, $700 and you can have mine. or $750 and ill drop it off. With the 5 tractor tyres. Its running ~jump in and drive off! It even has half a tank of petrol in it! The only reason were getting rid of it, is were building a new toy.
