Many hardcore Samurai owners have stretched out their wheelbase to make them longer, and more capable on the trail. But did you know that the Samurai came as a long wheelbase? While the stock Samurai has a short 80-inch wheelbase, the long wheelbase (LWB) Samurai came with a 94-inch wheelbase, making it more appealing to experienced offroaders.

The problem is that they were sold in Canada, and not here in the United States.

Here is an excellent example of a 1987 Suzuki long wheelbase samurai that’s been modified for offroad.
