THOR #12991
Suzuki Sidekick

I have an outside chance to pick up a 19-something sidekick 4X4. Body is OK, interior - not so good but passable. I haven't driven it as yet so don't have much more info.


Anyone have any experience with one of these as a toad?


Any info, good or not so good, appreciated.


Jim

I've seen lots of them as toads. Put the transfer case in neutral and you should be good to go.

Thanks

Thanks to both replys. This is a manual tranny w/4X4. Setup for towing sounds very like

my old Jeep Wrangler toad stuff.

Is it already set-up for flat towing?

If not you might want to ask yourself if you want to invest a couple thousand into setting up something that old.
