A friend of mine recently came up to me and asked me about the soob that his parent's gave him.

So I take a look and it's a Full Time 4WD turbo GL-10 5 speed, with the LSD rear. It has a Diff Lock switch next to the shifter. Does that lock the front diff?

Since it's from California there is no rust and only 40k on the ticker.....

Now to try and convince him to sell it....:brow:

The diff lock will lock the center diff to make the front and rear diffs connected at a 1:1 ratio.

WOW... I want, I want.

Yes, convince him to sell (to me :D ), and please tell him its nothing special. :-p

But honestly if he is considering selling, let me know.

Only one way it could be a holier grail...

Have a black/red pimp interior :banana: (though those were only available on the 85-86 models... maybe only 85....)

Actually the only thing that could make it cooler would be that if it was a RX, which would give it the 4WD lo shifter.


But finding a car with 40k miles and in good condtion is really hard to find

So, what is so holy grail about this?? It is probably an 89 GL-10 Turbo Full Time 4WD, which would explain the LSD rear diff, since it was standard for that model year (it was an option of the 87 and 88). Any GL-10 Turbo from 87 to 89 would have the 5 speed with a center lock.

To me a holy grail would be a XT-6 Full Time 4WD with a 3.90 LSD, but then each of us have our own ideas on what a holy grail should be. Another one would be a 1st gen JDM RX, the ones we got in the USA were 2nd gen's.

Sorry bud , no dice. Its a complete running car. He won't give up parts. It belongs to a board member who has it down here for storage right now. I'm sure one day he will claim it.

Are you looking for a manual for your XT? My PB 4WD 5SPD may be available soon... depends on how things play out with some parts sources... Yes, I am being intentionally cryptic because parts are hard to come by down here and I don't want to get sniped:D

Calebz, I'd like to see some pictures of the XT-6, if you can get them. Make sure you get a shot of the rear diff metcal.
