Sorry to drag up a 3 month old thread, but wow thats a nice LJX. I owned a Suzuki SX4 that I had tuned as a super street car, and I know a lot of SX4 guys have gone the other direction and lifted it and made it a capable off road car. A few members on my SX4 forum have LJX, Vitaras, Sidekicks, and Trackers, really great cars. Yours looks great, have you done a lot of work with it?

Basically its been underserviced. I am gettting it up to date, shaking it down. Did all the tune up stuff, changed all the fluids. Replaced all the speakers and radio. Went up 3 tire sizes. Lowered with HR lowering springs. Replaced shocks. Installed hitch. Removed roof rack, spare tire, spare tire carrier, blocked upper grill. Painted front skid plate black. Painted brake partrs black. Upgraded to ceramic brake parts. Changed brake fluid. Tinted wiondows.

Up next is 1.5 inch wheel spacers, possible 1 inch body lift, tri header and 2 inch exhaust, upgraded front nad rear sway bars, possible egr delete unless header does this. May grid dizzy to allow more advance. Replaced cam gear with a 5 degree advanced one from 3 tech. May send head to 3 tech to get ported, polished, bigger valves ans a performance cam.

Think I fixed the rke, but I dont use it. Fixed the ac/heater as it was full of yard waste. Fixed cruse control as it was out of adjustment. Tightened front sway bar ends and upgraded to urthene bushings.
