    Lil Cootah' #boulderwheelin

    Ok guys need some helpful knowledge. I bought this little rig real cheap! It's a Suzuki samurai frame stretched in the front with a 3 link rear! It's on 5 lug Toyota axles with a rebuilt 22R and Toyota auto tranny.
    Looks well built!
    Question? Does anyone know what bolt patter the Yota 4x4 axles with only 5 lugs is? I'd like to run my spyderlock 5 on 4.5's on it if possible!!!
    The plan is to put a GotPropane kit on it this week. Any better suggestions???
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Didn't think there were 5 lug Toyota 4 wheel drives? Sure it's not sami axles? They're basically smaller Toyotas. If so, it's 5x5.5.

    I wouldn't mess with propane. Weber carb, or EFI.

    Two wheel drive Toyotas are five lug 5x4.5 but that doesn't explain a five lug Toyota front axle. I'd go Weber or EFI propane works if it's right but is expensive and can be a pain.

    I would just beat on it like that, unless you want to upgrade the sammy axles to toyota so that you can really beat on it. I might know someone interested in the sammy axles if you decide to swap them out. The 22R and carb work pretty well. If you are going to pony up to change to anything from the carb go ahead and motor swap to a newer EFI motor. Unless you can grab a propane kit off an old forklift for super cheap. Downside of propane is that it is a bitch to tune so that you don't stink.

    Are you positive? Samurai is 5x5.5. 2wd Toyota is 5x4.5. I don't know what else is 5x5 other than new jeeps.
