The "General"

Discussion in 'Subaru Sambar' started by Ohkei Dohkei, Jun 11, 2019.

  1. Was it designed for a Sambar or custom mounted?

    No, it was for a Jeep Wrangler. I bolted it to the winch plate that I welded to the front crossmember. It'll push limbs out of the way, but I wouldn't try to push start a F250 with it.

    Well the wife took the Sambar for a spin and she is taking it to work tomorrow since she is a teacher and her school is driving around the neighborhoods of the kids they teach as some sort of parade. She only turned on the wipers 4 times!

    God Bless all the teachers, as well as all the people in the Medical Field, Law Enforcement, Fire and Rescue, and any one dealing with the public during these trying times!

    I agree completely, that's all the more reason I take walks in the woods, hunt, fish, etc...!

    My son and I have spent the last 3 days in the turkey woods. I drove it around for 2 days and the fender flares worked like a charm and kept 98% of the mud off of the truck. All my tire rub issues have been resolved and the world was good. My 16yo son took it out solo on day 3, and it came back covered in mud. I don't understand what could have happened? :rolleyes:

    On another note, we did some fishing in the afternoons and guess who did the boat launching? It towed the boat no problem. I did have to downshift into 4th a few times on long uphill climbs, but it was really painless. I did get a few looks tho.

    Took a trip down to the river! Hooked several, Steelies, on the ol' fly rod! Very rewarding! Catch and release! That's just the way we like to do it! Were allowed to keep two! I'm okay with letting em go! Just me and my 12 buds!

    Hey Ohkei, i'm currently diagnosing a problem and i'm not 100% sure my plug wires are on the distributor in the right places. We have basically the same truck, any chance you could get a clearer image with which wire goes to which cylinder?

    I meant down on the distributor part if you can, there isn't quite enough light for me to see which one goes where. Thanks!

    Ohkei,
    I like the way that you think! Make it easy for down the road, just in case! One of the huge benefits of having a dump/scissor lift bed is access! It really is a tremendous benefit! That being said I was able to weld mine on! After I fab.'d it! IMG_0050.jpg IMG_1006.jpg IMG_1007.jpg IMG_1008.jpg IMG_1009.jpg Some pics, to help explain! Since, I'm strictly off road, I removed the tail light's, and tin brackets, leaving the wiring for future, possible use if needed, or wanted, and I fabbed a piece of 3/8 steel, and welded that in place, to mount the newly fabbed "z" style, shaped brackets to! I went with a 2 inch square tube, because it's easier to stand on if needed! Easier to mount the brackets, and hitches to! I've allways been a dual purpose, kill two birds, with one stone, practical kinda Guy! I do agree with you, we can only haul so much with these! It does make a very use full step though!
