    Close T.
    Pretty sure that Suzuki actually built it, then it was rebadged.

    Suzuki, or isuzu. Then flare on top the fenders look like an Isuzu

    Actually I didn't know that there was such a thing as a Geo Tracker before yesterday.
    Well I bought myself a 1997 Geo, sight unseen, and plan to get it running, but some mud tires on it, and use it as a trail ride, because its small and light. It should fit where big rigs can't go, and if stuck, be easy to pull out. I used to have a Wrangler, sold it 3 years ago, and been wanting something smaller.
    The seller has told me it has serious problems, including a blown head gasket, and more. When I get it trailered home, first thing is yank the engine and transmission, and rebuild them.
    It might be ready for summer 2021 trail ride season. I plan to remove the rear roof, and leave it off permanently, for that open air experience.
    Somehow in the future, figure out how to attach two winches, front and rear, so I can pull it forwards or backwards, since I have two 8,000 lb Mile marker winches off my jeep.

    Google pics to show how the top comes off.
    It will be black when I am done.
    Painted with rattle cans, for easy touch up if flopped on its side, hits a tree, rocks, and anything else that is possible to be run into. unnamed (2).jpg

    Look at the weight, 2339 lbs, and tiny size, is what makes them so good offroad. The old suzuki, basically its twin, is popular around here. I'll be cutting weight off of it, then adding weight via bumpers, tires, winches, second battery, and such. Should be around 2600 lbs ready to roll. Hit stuff hard and fast, get high centered just push it off, or drag it off with a winch. Stuck in a hole, no worries, easy to pull out. It was annoying to see the cheap little rear wheel drive things going, where my jeep couldn't.

    After i regear it nice and low, use a sawzall on the fenders, and put some very aggressive tires on it, should be fun. I only paid 500, but will spend 350 hauling it here on a backhaul a flat deck is making next week, and probably 10k on parts, a lot of shop time, it should be fun.

    I'm excited!
    I love having a beater to smash around in. I hated it when I banged up my brand new Jeep...this thing I would laugh.
