Smile Is my Suzuki really a Samurai in disguise?

Hello.
I am hoping someone can help me, seriously...
I am trying to learn as much as I can about my Suzuki, but not finding much luck or success on the internet so far.
From looking at recent pics it appears to be close to a Samurai, but I don't know?
The "official" name on it it "Suzuki Caribian".
The year is 1993
This is a used vehicle that I bought in Thailand 3 years ago.
I am having your typical mechanical issues, but no where to turn for help.
I'm hoping if I use a name that is recognized by the western world, dark secrets might come to life for me.

Thank you in advance for all that you might be able to tell me about my great little toy.

Post a pic.
The 1993 Suzuki Caribian also came in a long wheelbase model.

Default How do I post pics?

Thank you for the thought that some pics could be a big help.
I do have a couple of pics that could surely help someone wiser than myself.
But... now I need to ask for help in how to post a couple of pictures...

I can get by with a 'puter but don't consider myself thoroughly competant.
I saw a button that said "insert image", but then it requested a ' URL '.
I'm not too sure how to proceed from there.
I'm assuming that URL means I am suppose to send web address where pictures are posted somewhere in cyber space?

I was hoping for the little box where I could guide it through my hard drive & click on the file name...

Any advise is appreciated. Thanks.
(I feel like the newbie that I am <sigh> )

When you post a pic, the pic actually needs to already be out there on the web somewhere. Then when it asks for an URL (internet address) you put in the address to that picture.

For example:
web address - http://www.billjohn.com/wallpaper/billjohn_sands.jpg

picture -

Smile Disguised Samurai pics

Thank you Bill John.
That is a beautiful picture that you posted.

I think I have finally figured out how to upload some pictures to this forum.
I uploaded 2 pics.

Lets see if this works...

Thank you for the patience & baby sitting.

Let's try again...
By the way, that is a really nice looking Zook!



I went to where you uploaded it in the gallery and dugdown to the full size pic.
Then I right-clicked it and selected properties.
The address (URL) is what I copied and put in between the img tags.

Fantastic looking Suzuki!
Wish I had one!
I love the roof
The grille looks like SJ413 or very early samurai
Its got sills like a SJ413, but flush repeater indicators like a Samurai.
never seen those flares before, but could be the plastic SJ413 ones painted.
Did Thailand buy the Suzuki spare parts dept?!
Do you have round or square heater vents in the dash?
Whats the chassis number? Should be stamped in the chassis rail behind the right front wheel
