    I just got the Crossroads lift kit installed on my 93 Sambar. Quite a job! I did a detailed review and a complete write-up of the installation, complete with pics. See it here:

    Thanx, Acerguy--I hope it will be helpful to other owners. Maybe it will keep them from making some of the same mistakes I did ;)

    Thanks for the how too and the link, i just ordered a set. This is a lot easier of a kit to install than other companies out there that need fabing to fit.

    Cant wait to get these and follow your write up :)

    Some of they guys who sell these trucks said not to put a lift on a sambar, said it will take out CV joints all the time. How does yours run?

    Ive had a three inch lift on mine for awhile I had to make limiting straps on the back so the cvs would not pull out and pop but other then that been fine.

    Think you would still need the straps on a 2 inch lift? What size is the crossroads lift?

    Well im really not sure I was at the point on mine where maybe a inch would of helped but I had already made it and didnt want to do it again. Now with that said after I installed the lift I had to put weight on the rear end springs so I could put the shocks back on and they would of worked as a limiter but I was afraid of them pulling apart with the way I drive it maybe If you took it easy it would be okay.

    Ya this thing is for moving cows around the farm so it will be driven pretty hard! What size of tires can you fit on it with the 2" lift? 23's?

    I have big horn 25/8/12 on it right now I had to trim a little on the bottom of the doors maybe 1/2 inch, and when I put 2000lbs of logs on they rub my fender flap things

    I printed his instructions a couple months ago, if you ask him to put them back up I'm sure he will. Definitely the best instructions I've ever seen for a lift kit install, walks you through it step by step with pics. NOW that being said, even with good instructions it can be a PIA install, some of them go very easy and some you have to fight but either way the end result is very good, the lift kit lifts the truck perfectly

    Too bad that he doesn't even have any mention of his truck on his website...not even in the "previous projects" section. :(

    rwb31: I'd suggest sending him an email. Must be a contact on his website.

    Looks like he went to the dark side, with the UTV.

    He's got bikes going back decades, but wiped all traces of the truck from the site.
