    ...ah kasi naka stock form. No offense to stock sammy owners, but mukhang "kawawa" pag naka stock heigth and tires ang samurai. talaga bang nag li-leak ang sammy pag malakas ang ulan? di ba ma-solve ito?

    sa '92 model, doon sa door sill sa medyo taas ang nagli-leak pagmalakas ang ulan. but I think they remedied the problem by changing the design of the weatherstrip which I noticed in the later models. wala kasing rain gutter before the doors so the tendency of the rainwater is to head straight into the gap between the frame and the door.
