ShopZuki Rebuild

by S4/Matt on 12/07/16

We had a cracked ring in our used 1.3 we put in the ShopZuki. This project started as a budget build to save a Samurai that would otherwise go to the scrapper. With all of the spare parts we had, we used whatever we could to make the truck work. But.... somewhere along the line, the truck turned into our shop truck, and the main truck we will test new products/prototypes on. We had everything set up, and the 1.3 began blowing smoke. Unfortunately there was no other way to remedy the problem except rebuild the bottom end. Good news for you! I am recording the rebuild process with some tips and tricks we have learned over the years. I'll release these as short videos, broken up for each operation we do. Stay tuned and help support S4 Offroad! Email us at and order the best parts for your Suzuki or Isuzu today!
