Shawn- I'm curious about how much my Brat is worth and if my topper adds to the value? -Calvin

I think it makes it a little ugly but if it adds functionality for you then its worth it. I personally like the open bed, rollbar and seats in the back look the best.

This is one of those heavily asked questions. A little searching and a little reading will take you far. As for this one, I'll toss you a freebie. Only other manufacturer that used the 4x140 bolt pattern was Pugeot, specifically on the 504 and 505 models. Good luck hunting some of those down with proper fitting lugnuts ;) (yes, you need the factory Pugeot Lugnuts to make most of the wheels work, and yes, luckily enough the thread size and pitch is the same).

Anyway, welcome to the forum, take care of your new baby. I'll be ressurecting my 85 in the future.

I believe there is a thread in the offroad section that covers your question.
