There are a bunch of guys in western wisconsin that have insane Trackers. They are truly on the cutting edge of suzikis and trackers. One of the guys runs a website I think. I will try and find it for ya.

Uh I guess he doesn't run it but his screen name is Mikerpm4x4. Search www.zukiworld.com for his posts.

Those rigs are sick! I witnessed him roll his red tracker and posted pics in the flop thread. Cool guys and a lot of fun to wheel with.

Hello hcgalvin, welcome to the forum! :welcome:

It's only as wide as an FZJ80 with 315x75x16's ;) WMS to WMS is what, 63"?

I think I'm 107" wheelbase. Could be 104". Haven't measured in a while. Guess I should.

Couple more pics (before the camo Krylon job)





It's fun. :D

Stock motor, OTT Industries' Kicker 3, and their Hi Steer arm for my FJ80 axles, Wrangler leafs, 6.4:1 Trail Tough gears in my Samurai case, E Lockers (of course), and I converted to manual hubs in the front. I'm using the stock rear FJ80 sway bar, and a Sammy sway bar in the front.

You guys can see lots of pics at the address in my sig. ;)

Nice site BTW! It's awesome how you communicate out here!

Little something I picked up last year to mess with.  Right now i pulled the 39's and put the 38.5 Boggers on - drives little better - not near as bouncy :cool:  Have it getting new steering and hyrdo-assist this week.  After that is done I am debating on even running the 39's again - they were just a little big but worked well on the rocks.  Well anyways - on to the pictures.

I hate to be the dork to exhume an ancient post, but I have some questions since I am doing a very similar build to this.  :smack:
I am going to run a L52 with dual cases in my Trackkick.

How did you deal with the transmission shift lever? Offset lever or a remote setup? By my measurements, the existing lever would be under the radio.

How did you set up the master cylinder for the clutch, or did you adapt the cable onto the clutch fork?

A buddy has a Sidekick that has over 300hp, and I was supposed to go help pit for him in Redmond this weekend.  But that fell through, due to him having surgery.
