full exo cage built off rear bar,

Why did you buy this vehicle?
for a camping weekend, vehicle didnt fuss me as long as it was a 4x4, but fell in love with its capablilties

Welcome aboard, they are an awesome rig mate. I had one before my current rig. It went awesome with a Body Lift and Swampers.

I was talking to someone about a exo cage tonight because I was looking at putting a roll bar in mine in future time because the roof just scares me, i know that if it rolls im gonna be like a can of sardines.Then i actually looked at my inside of my car and saw that it really not that much room for a roll bar set up. Do you know of any good websites i can look at?
thanks Josh

i dont think u will be like sardines.. more like a can of pumkin soup!!!! na they are not 2 bad in slow rolls...

Josh, Vitara94.

There are a wealth of good forums with lots of technical info for the Vitara (or Sidekick as it is called in the US).

Locally, there is:
outerlimits suzi section, Outer Limits 4x4 Board :: Index
Auszookers auszookers › Forums › Home
and North Brisbane Suzuki Club - Index

There are heaps more overseas in the US. Good luck fellas, they are a lot of fun, but it is hard to get used to having a wheel off the ground! Makes them very photogenic!

Here was mine

Fellow Vitara Owner

My current project is a 95 4 door Vitara. Would love to keep in touch to compare experiences. I think the Vitara is an underated vehicle by most dedicated 4WDers, but quite capable out of the box and more so with the right set up.

Best Wishes

reduction gears go great...... tested them out on the weekend...

gipsy they area a great car...very reliable, i have taken mine to qld quite a few times, been to fraser island, melbourne-through marysville, down to tasmania(just over christmass went there solo)

spare parts are cheap... or even better buy a second one for parts(i did) very capable and it suprises most ppl, they tell u no dont do it u wont make it, but i make it.. i have had ppl follow me through tracks that have spend 50g+ and i move over for them and they have said na i just want to watch u!!
