Wanted: Geo Tracker or Suzuki Sidekick Toad

Recommended Posts

Greetings! We're looking for a 2-door 4x4 Geo Tracker or Suzuki Sidekick for use as a toad. We're hoping to find one that meets the following criteria, but we may be open to others:

  • 2 door
  • 1st generation (1989–1998)
  • White in color
  • No rust
  • Manual transmission
  • Includes tow bar and base plate

If you have one (or know of one) for sale, please let us know!

Just as an FYI, I have a friend that tows a 2wd 1st gen geo tracker (manual transmission) 4 down with no issues. You see mixed reviews on this, but it seems everyone that does it has no issues. Usually you can find 2wd tracker/sidekicks much cheaper than their 4wd counterparts if not having 4wd wasn't a big deal to you.

@BlueLghtningThank you for the tip! I'm hoping to do some offroading with the vehicle, so I would like to find a 4x4 if possible. 

Thanks!

I certainly understand I would want to do the same. Good luck in your search. BTW, we have seen a ton of these in the South West like AZ over the winter.

I'll ask my neighbor if he's interested in selling his.  It sits 99% of the time.  He has a Suzuki X-90, 4x4, 40k+- miles, decent shape.  If you're interested of course.  Located in Bismarck ND.

As great (and rare) as the X-90s are, we're hoping to find something with a <bit> more space so we can take our dog with us on our adventures. Thank you for the offer though!

That's our issue with it.  Nowhere to put the mutt.

Haha, I haven't thought about one of those in years. They were never very popular for sure. I'm not sure if they were quite as capable as a tracker/sidekick, but they could still be fun. Do you know if it's a 5spd? I'd be curious to see what he wants for it. It's just my wife and I so we could make it work. I'll do some more looking up on them. 

Can you find out if it was real 4x4 with a transfer case with 4wd low / 4wd high / and N? For some reason I didn't think they were, but I don't think I've ever even drove one. 

Edit: The X-90 does a have a real transfer case. It is more car like though with a bit longer body, lower ground clearance and from the specs, I'm not sure at 6'4" how well I would fit in it. Still interested in hearing about it.

Sounds like you want a Suzuki XL-7.  Same as the 4 door Sidekick but stretched 7" for more cargo room.
