After reading about member rides and such, I have decided to hang on to my Suby long term and make it an off-road capable daily driver.
I have fixed all vacuum leaks and did a tune-up and the car now runs better than when I first got it. Idles like a dream and handles the freeway no sweat. I replaced the spare wheel in the engine compartment with a full size wheel that I got with the car.
First hop-up is this from Craigslist. Picking it up tomorrow for $85 from approximately 1.5 miles from my apartment.
Plans for the future are to rebuild rear diff (bogs car down in 4WD mode), lift, off-road wheels/tires, light bar, cargo basket on roof rack, and fix body dings/dents/paint. Oh, and I have to recharge the AC as soon as possible. I had the system evacuated to fix a leaking shrader valve and haven't come around to recharging it. Need to do it this month since we'll be warming up pretty soon down here in Houston.
I'll post photos of the Loyale tomorrow.
My main hobby is RC drag racing. I am a co-founder of Gulf Caost RC Drag Racing and the co-owner and chief designer at Urban Assault Racing which I started with a friend after I lost my job.
Thank you so much for all the information contained in this forum and I am glad to have joined.
Edit: This is my second Suby. First was an 87 XT back in '97. Had it for about year before selling it to a friend.
