I will let Chris tell you the full story but as well as patrol axles, the blue one has a 1.6 16v turbo!
Good luck with the build Chris, it is going to be a great rig when finished.

is that a swb body on a lwb chassis, or have you just extended the chassis?
It's not a question of how much you spend on your suzuki, but when your money will run out

no its not a long wheel base i extended the chassis back and i will more on front,
all my frends have a long wheelbase zukis (like the blue in the picture) and handle way better
than the short one, i like more the short one better with the axles sticking out of the frame i will
also make it a tuber
