Going up to 11 inches lift and taking the T case plunge

I hate to loose the front wheel drive but I think the benefits will be worth it.

Is there any way around it? Stainless steel stubs?

that is just unbelievable. defnitely interested in seeing the final product. Just remember, you'll have it in your power to run over every normal car on the road. Use these powers wisely young grasshopper.

but I'd be getting worried about diff stubs with 33" tires
I am worried about the 30'ish tires and smoking them up at a light now, it all becomes relative. Like driving an XT6 with cybrid and air suspension, tickin time bomb.

along with that using that wide of a tire is going to help towards breaking those stub axles.
8" seems plenty sufficient. i've already almost rolled my car a few times. and i have 4 inches of tire sticking out of the fenders. which helps for trying to keep it from rolling over. your just trying to compete with the rest of us, huh? gotta have the biggest? you heard mike is going to be going 10 so you went 11, and heard 12 was too much. 8" was perfect and anything over 10 is crazy. and unpractical in my opinion, not that it matters.

I am sure my handeling will take a hit but right now it is FAR better than stock at 8 inches. I haven't just left the suspension stock, the spring rate is much higher so you don't get the bobble and sway. The adjustable shocks are a huge help in going from a compliant suspension to a stiff road going suspension.
wider is better

Since I am going T case I can feed the thing with any engine and tranny that will fit. I gave some real thought to an Isuzu or cummins 4cyl turbo diesel. But in the end I decided I had to keep it Subaru powered.

still uses CV's up front.
The car will drive with rear wheel drive, and then when you engage 4wd through the T-case, it becomes 4x4.
T-case = No more front wheel drive

Hey Mr. Subarubrat.....when this is done I gotta see this thing some how some way....

Also glad to see your making the plunge. It's a good mod to do, and you really don't have to worry bout much with the ER.
Did you grab the shaft from the nissan tranny to the T-case? With that, you don't have to do a lot of work, it plugs right into the Subaru tranny. I got both my drivelines made up for a Benjy, thats making the rear one, shortening the Nissan front one, and replaceing the front U-joints. Not too shabby. Keeps the pics flowin!!!
