new wiring loom, major work, all brake lines, brake master cyl, etc, everything under the hood "reverses" so all stuff on firewall on right has to go on left side. I am not sure but I think the engine mounts change to allow steering to clear as well.
Engine and trans don't move, neither does air intake but thats about it. Its a major expensive and time consuming job. Worth way more than the truck ever will be.
inside, new heater, new dash, new wiring loom, pedal box has to move, heaters are definitely different, as ducting changes significantly. not sure on seats as some had an offset to align driver with steering column, but I think that was on the earlier models.
2015 5 dr Grand Vitara 2.4 (daily driver)
1971 V8 HG Holden with 383 stroker 9" torq lok and TH350 trans (the toy)
Mitzi RVR 2.0 (not one of my better buys)
the 2013 3 dr GV is now the off road only toy
