Just bought a Samurai! Excited, but in need of advice.
I just bought a samurai.
It had been sitting for a couple years, but is in really decent shape.
Its got a shackle lift, a breeze steering stabilizer, and a few other suspension mods. Its not too bad of a ride for its height, i was surprised.
The engine is a stock 86 1.3L Samurai Engine, it runs strong once you're done messing around with the carb to get it started...
Which brings me to my problem. I am trying to figure out what steps i should take first to get this samurai to be a reliable daily driver. I understand it will take work.
I am going to be working on it with my Dad who is mechanically inclined, but you guys have a lot of up-to-date experience, which i find very helpful.
Any suggestions on what my priorities should be?
What modifications are crucial first steps for a daily driver?
All of you're help is greatly appreciated.
