Installation and Review of Sky Manufacturing’s Samurai Light Tabs.

Editor: Eric Bewley

Springfield, OR -Sky Manufacturing and Off-road Design has provided Samurai enthusiasts with another fine product. Samurai Light tabs are designed to take the place of the factory windshield brackets allowing the owner to attach two off-road lights in this optimal place. We received the windshield light tab install kit via USPS. The kit contained two light tabs, 6 stainless steel socket head bolts and washers, installation instructions, and decals. The parts are laser cut and jig welded. Overall, our impressions of the kit were favorable with the exception of some welding splash and a finish suitable for metal protection not presentation that led us to repaint the brackets before installation.

The following installation steps will illustrate an easy install and a great finished product. If you run at the dunes, at night, or just want a little extra light. The Sky Manufaturing Samurai Light tabs make an excellent choice.

COTTAGE GROVE, MN - We're extremely excited to tell you about Trail Tough's new offering for Suzuki Sidekick, Geo Trackers, and Grand Vitara. What is exciting is not only that Brent and his fine crew in Medford have bridged the gap between the stock gear set and the 4.24:1 low gear set that may be too low for many applications. They have solved one of the fundamental issues that has plagued Suzuki enthusiasts since we started wheeling the Grand Vitara and Xl-7 or at least, began transplanting those engines and transmissions into Samurai and Sidekicks.
