looking for a new 4x4

Post by 4x4troy on 5/30/2012, 4:11 pm

Melissa is getting my explorer and i am looking for something eles now. what i want is either a 89-04 suzuki sidekick/tracker/vitara or a kia sportage...yes i am serious i have some good ideas for one of these. they are small and can fit anywhere and great fuel mileage to boot. they are both ifs front but coil and linked rear with a live axle. but the front is easy to lift because they are not torsion style they are coil and strut. lowing brackets for the a-arms and coil spacers and strut spacers and its easy to get 2.5-3" of lift and run 31's. any way the search/hunt is on......

Plus it'd be hard to sell one of those for a profit.

ok its between 3 now.....
1) kia sportge 4x4
2)mitsubishi montero sport 4x4
3) suzuki grand vitara 4x4

all are 4 door and automatic. the mits has a 3.0 and the highest ground clearence. all are very capible(per videos on youtube). the kia looks pretty cool lifted with big tires and with its light weight and ok power with 4:77 gears it goes pretty good. the zuki is the same....the mits has more power but is heavier and longer and has a torsion front where the other two have coils all around and a arm front.

The stoutness of the Kia parts is suspect. Son #1 has one and everything is smaller suspension-wise.

yes ifs with a arm coil....not torsion. gotta figure out why 4x4 is not working now....has manual hubs so the vaccuum auto stuff is useless.
