Hi All
I'm new to all this 4x4 stuff, but now i have got myself a 1993 Suzuki Vitara JLX (hardtop), it came with a years tax and ticket and loads of history
for the bargain price of £350.....so i'm happy!!
But i have been looking at it thinkng i want to add some mods to it but where to start......got a starting budget of around £400 for stage 1 of the modding so
where do i start???

Gotta agree, get some good tyres and go playing! These things are amazingly good straight out of the box. Once you've had a go you'll soon know what mods you want to make.

I've got 215R15 Greenway Machos, the pic shows them next to the standard 195R15 ATs that I had before.



They fitted without any mods but they just rubbed under the front arches under extreme articulation (no problem with that but I've since done a 2" body lift so it doesn't happen anymore) and they just catch the leaf spring on full lock but that's no problem either, just makes a noise.
