The governance of the samurai in sannine

After many years of 4×4 driving, the Suzuki samurai is the number one choice of the majority of top ranked offroaders in Zahle. It is maybe the only 4×4 that can move in the hard and difficult winter offroad conditions of the sannine mountain; between the valleys and the frozen lakes on the path that leads to the top of the mountain reaching the” French room” on an altitude of more than 2500m above the sea surface.

A rough region with a snow overdose, low temperatures and amazing Views to the Bekaa’s valley from one side, Beirut and the sea from the other side.

The samurai with its Short wheel base, Light weight, Low center of gravity, Leaf springs is a Heavy duty Classic 4×4 that can be easily modified; Front and rear differential lock, higher ratio gearbox, Bmw 318 or VW golf engines and some have installed 2 consecutive gearboxes for slower acceleration with higher torque, which allows the samurai alongside its deflated snow tires to move on surface of snow even when it’s not frozen.
