History
I came out of a store, saw the Sidekick and a towbar on the front. I went over and started talking with the owner. He told me he stopped RV'ing after his wife died in 2010 and he hadn't really been using it. I asked if he wanted to sell it, and he did, so I did!

130K Miles, 45K of them are towed miles. Engine runs strong and burns no oil, and the interior and exterior are excellent. Can't wait to get it hooked up to my 1997 RexAir Class A RV.
1997 Suzuki Sidekick JX (Dark Gray)

Modifications

Drivetrain
1.6L 4 cylinder engine...that's all I know.
Interior
Needs a armrest so I'm looking into that.
GOT IT! Got the center console (armrest) and installed it this past weekend, 6/1/2019
Exterior
None at this time.
Audio
Radio works and actually has a good sound.
Suspension
I think it needs new shocks...they look like the original ones. Nice thing I noticed, no rust underneath!
Wheel and Tire
Here I'd like to buy some decent tires, just for highway travel in summer and winter, and a little off road messing around, nothing too crazy.

Speaking of crazy, when I bought the rig, I didn't really look at the tires very closely as the tread looked good. But check out the cracks around the bead...terrible. According to the DOT code, they're over 18 years old!! YIKES!
