    Grand Vitara

    Just picked this up to be a semi useful second car. It's a 99 Grand Vitara 2.5 v6 manual with 2.5" lift with new arms etc, rancho shocks, 5.12 vitara diffs, manual hubs, winch bar and MTs. Body and interior are pretty neat with less than 200k on the clock.
    Needs a couple of lockers and a winch, but I might work up to that

    CalMini bumper and suspension, someone spent some serious coin.

          Yep. Without the crap shocks too. Looks like a good purchase

              The guy I got it off has owned it since 2001. He said the calmini shocks were way too firm so he chucked them out. It rides really well with the Ranchos.

                So basically calmini have some awesome engineering in there suspension designs, their lift kits are almost worth it for the arms and geometry alone, but their shocks suck. So looks like you have the best of all worlds. bumpers are well designed also.

                  Rear should be LSD? Prolly get away with fuckall need for a locker unless you wanna go the really gnarly paths.

                  Seems well thought out/right coin in right places and in good shape too:D Be a few good long weekends of fun in that bug.

                    Definitely no rear LSD! Struggled to take off uphill in the wet in the way home.

                      Yeah, for a while Calmini seemed to favor just supplying the arms etc and letting you choose the springs and shocks.
