Nice!

I'm building one of these at the moment.

It's always nice to see how other guys have gone about the conversion...

Hey BumbleBee7,

Has that one been lowered at all?

Or is he just running lower profile street tires?

Yes it's lowered front and rear. Front diff was removed and an 8.8 for the rear.

very interested in this build, I have a stock 2wd samurai that I'm currently dropping a Suzuki Swift GT motor in but eventually plan on tossing in a Rotary or 4agze. Do you guys prefer the 12a or 13b? also which tranny is the best to use?
