Yep I think you are right it is the Samurai Chassis drawing - all I could find.
 


Wheelbase is 10cm different I think. Do you have a LWB Vitara drawing by any chance?

search using escudo or sidekick there seems to be more results for those names than vitara

Getting back to my "Road Rail design", I did some sketches based on a print out of the LWB Vittara chassis, sort of part trophy truck, part sand rail, part bouncer. Unfortunately I suck at design or drawing but I sketched this>



Then today  on one of my google trawls I found this uncannily similar  awesome looking thing

Now I don't like the Jeep grill just the flat hood but I just love the layout and form  - obviously it's not designed to mount on a chassis but that shape of a low-ish slung cockpit between the wheels look great.

There is a sketch of the frame somewhere so time to get to CAD, wood sticks and duck tape


your drawing looks like its on a print out of a lwb sj chassis not Vitara  leaf springs and weak  solid axles
