Here she is. 1987 Canadian Long Wheelbase Suzuki Samurai.

A long work in progress. Im trying to decide whether to turbo charge the 2.4 liter Toyota diesel or to maybe put in a TDI or CRD if I can find one.

i would say turbo charge that little sucker. Of course there are tons of Toyota forums out there that, i am sure if you did a quick search those guys would answer any needs you have. I have read someone where they did turbo that engine and it ran great. I know there is a Zuki club here in Colorado, that might have a website that can answer your questions

Sure but I dont know how to post them. I used the normal Img function and it only creates those tiny pics you all see.

Thanks JB. She's been a fun project. I wish they had brought the long wheelbase samurai into the US.

THAT IS AWESOME! Great build! I had no idea that frame length was an option either. I just figured you did a ton to it. Looks great!!!!

Normal samurai's had a 79.9" wheelbase. The long wheelbase jobs had a 94" wheelbase like a jeep wrangler. Mine has been stretched to 100".

THanks everyone. Its to bad they never brought them to the United States. I mean look at all that bed space.

As a 6BT weighs about 1/2 ton, I wonder how the frame would like even a 4bt...

Good question. The frame is fully boxed end to end.
