We love receiving letters from our overseas readers like Dennis Marcelo from the Philippines. He has spent the last five years rebuilding his FJ45 into what you see today. He tells us, "Your magazine has been a wealth of knowledge for many of us over here and has continued to help us complete many projects."Thanks for being a reader, and that's a great looking rig you got there Dennis!
Mike Yager of Garden Grove, California, has been building up his Suzuki Samurai trail rig for quite a few years. The basic structure of the Samurai makes it a great choice for many wheelers who want to start with something that is a little lower in initial cost. He has added a spring-over axle JP-Eater YJ kit with Superlift 1-1/2-inch-lift springs, '85 Toyota front and rear axles with a Detroit Locker in the rear and a Truetrac locker in the front. Future modifications include performance upgrades and making enough room for a larger tire size.
