Question Where does it fit LJ/SJ 70

I was just looking at the history of the suzuki once again thanks to another member here at Suzuki LJ10 and LJ20 Info etc. www.lj10.com and the LJ/SJ 70 is not in the time line anywhere on this page or any other suzuki websites

Anyone ??

HI....
Sorry it's an SJ 70 built in 92/3 for some reason I keep thinking it's an LJ
from the out side it looks like an LJ 80 series sierra

Ok, found one on the net. It looks like the SJ70 was basically the same model as the late model US Samurai. EFI motor and steel fenders. Looks like it was still leaf sprung. That would be the 1989 to 1995 Samurai.
Does that help?

Wow. First 'carby' I've heard of with steel fender flares.

I wish I had more info about specs for models outside the US. I have most of the US brochures/specs lists, but only a few from outside the US.

Well, as long as you know what you have, you should have no trouble getting parts from the Zook Vendors. Most of the good ones here in the US will work with you on what you want to achieve - and then ship worldwide.

I understand that these suzuki's have been sent all around the world
however on two particular suzuki websites that I cant find at the moment
there is no mention of the SJ-413/SJ 70 model, everything on the web I have seen on the time line has not included this particular model and not sure why

now I'm even a little more confused after reading this website

The History of Suzuki Samurai

AKA SJ-413 / SJ 70 sierra
