Hello everyone. Thanks for reading my post.
I just got myself an 87 Samurai 4x4. It is bone stock and i need to lift it. I am looking at Rocky Roads 5" Bolton SPOA lift that includes shocks and steering. Can i order this package alone and not be missing anything?
What do you all recommend? I pretty much want a usable lift without breaking my wallet, but i hate to upgrade parts a year later. I just want it right the first time.
I plan to run 235/75 15 for the time being. I will want to fit 31-33"s in the future once i change the gearing. I want it to be good on the road so my girlfriend can drive it, but i want it to be more than capable of going where i am afraid of taking my 07 FJ. My FJ has gone up some crazy stuff, but i almost tipped it on 3n34 in big bear ca. I cant afford to pay a loan on a totaled truck, and that is where the Samurai entered the picture.
I don't want to go fast. 1.3L engine is proof of that. I want to crawl and climb.
I like hard moderate to difficult offroad, but not ready for anything extreme.
Here is what i am looking at right now. Does this sound about right?
Let me know if this sounds like it might work out, or if im missing something.
