So right now I have a 1989 bronco II- 2.9 liter, 4.56 gears, d35 front axle with arb, 7.5 rear axle welded. 6" lift and 34 x 10.5 ltb's. I used to have a samurai but I sold it for 300$, which i regret very very very much. but now I might be able to buy this same samurai back for cheaper. If i can get the samurai back I'm gonna quit turd polishing and part out the bII. I was thinking i should keep the 34's. those tires would be perfect for a samurai with a lot of lift, toyota axles, and gears. but i got to thinking and my little samurai, stock with 235/75 AT's could damn near go every where my bII can go. Why don't I just save myself some time and money, weld the rear axle on the sammi and buy some 29" swampers for it? in stock form they are very capable and have awesome c.o.g., approach, departure, and break over angles. plus it was a blast to drive around town. Does anyone here keep their sami stock by choice, not due to financial situations, mechanic skill etc? i could definately build the samurai up easily but am wondering if it'd be more fun to leave it stockish. One thing about a stock truck is it makes all trails that much more dramatic and more of a challenge.
