Suzuki Samurai DIY Slantback

I¬†actually¬†think this is pretty cool. Sure, it’s never going to last, and the round windows are a little very ridiculous. If he would have just sprayed some bedliner over the wood (it sticks just fine, ask me how I know) and used some …less round windows it would be a pretty cool look.

I have to applaud it because it’s got to be a real bitch building that thing and keeping it from contorting and falling apart as you try to hoist it up onto your Samurai by yourself. I’m assuming this guy did everything on his own, because I doubt there are three people in the world who think this is a good idea and I know I wasn’t involved in the process. It must be a weird feeling looking up as you sit in your truck and seeing bare, untreated wood above you. It’s awesome.

Forget rollovers, rain, thefts, and cargo space concerns. If that were my creation, my biggest fear would be walking out to my Samurai in a parking lot and finding that some asshole had installed subwoofers in all of my windows again.

About Mike Ross

I love anything you can drive. But I love it even more if it has a small block Chevy or Ford motor, a turbo, four wheel drive, is a hatchback, or was made in the 80s. My ideal car would be a combination of all of these things, and I'm working on building a time machine so I can go back to the 80's and convince Chevy and Ford to collaborate on a twin-engine, single turbo 4x4 XR4Ti/Fox Mustang/Third Gen F-body and hide one in a mineshaft for me to recover in brand new condition. Look for a blog post about it just as soon as it happens. Or maybe it already did, and I've already posted about it in the future and the internet just needs to catch up with it. Okay, my head hurts, never mind.
