I bought her in 2010 for 275 bucks off craigslist.
She had a blown headgasket and had sat in a puddle for the last year or so.
The very first thing i did was add off road lights.
So i eventually replaced the headgaskets on her because the XT i was driving at the time was falling apart faster than i could fix it.
Of course i wasn't satisfied with low Lucy looked so i added more headlights and an LSI grill.
As time wore on, more fun things happened like bigger tires and outback struts, and a 4WD switch for the automatic
Then i decided to advertise our cause and put stickers everywhere :cool:
So now we jump ahead a year, i and had moved from Washington to Montana. Before i left, i had gotten even bigger tires, broken out the low hanging lights, 15" rims, build a roof rack, put roof lights on it, inherited a trunk rack, added HID headlights, and installed CB equipment.

While i was at it, i decided to put a 4" lift kit on it, because why not
we've got a plasma cam and machine shop as well so it was very easy to make my own kit.
Things were going great until i got two flat tires in one day, and said to hell with it! i'm buying new tires!
That brings us to how Lucy currently sits!
For the future, i have a 5 speed D/R transmission that i am going to transplant. more to come when that happens!

Winestone metallic! Nice car bud, looks like a super sweet ride! For a really sweet price, no less. Good luck with the trans swap and other future upgrades. Cheers!
+1 this thing is awesome!

You will be very happy with the BFGoodrich KM2. They are a heavy tire, but are the best I've had so far. They also wear really good for a Mud-Terrain, they last.
Yup, KM2's for the win! Great tire all around.
Good build story as well. Looks like a fun build.

Did you need to use anything else from the outback to get the wheels centered in the wheel wells, etc?
With that lift you did, did you drop everything 4"? Like the engine crossmembers, trans crossmembers, diff, etc? What angle are those front strut spacers cut at? Any alignment issues? Have to do any fender bashing?
What does it ride like?
Loving the safari look, one tough Lego!
