1993 Suzuki Sidekick (LWB)

Aug. 01, 1995 By ORC STAFF

The Suzuki Sidekick is a neat little truck.

I've been incrementally upgrading my beastie since I got it in August of `93. To date, these are the modifications that I've made:

Explorer Pro Comp 2.5 inch lift kit BFGoodrich 30x9.5x15 tires on stock alloy rims "Fender Flares" (more like mouldings actually) Catalytic Converter back low back pressure exhaust Bush Bar Large Roof Rack Auxillary lights Warn M4500 mounted on custom winch carrier / skid plate Class 1 hitch Clarion stereo with 6 CD changer. (Hey, its a long way to the trails)

Things that I plan to add in the next while include:


  • Dual batteries
  • Tail light guards
  • Another 6 windshield washer nozzles (easy mod - header is pre-bracketed)
  • Larger washer bottle tank
  • CB Radio
  • Larger fuel tank
  • Hood mounted spare (Intention is to hang jerry cans off the rear carrier)
  • rear door mounted reverse lights

    And, once the ?en drops a little:


  • 5.83:1 Ring and Pinion Gears
  • Limited Slip or Locking Rear Differential (still waffling which way to go)

    Actually, the last two items will probably be ordered the day after I get in a situation where I wouldn't have gotten stuck if I had them. :)
