1. I bought both my brats in the south. One from Texas, the other from Oklahoma.

2. Neither of mine are lifted (yet). I hear it is not that difficult, though. Un bolt and put the lift blocks in. The part that you have to be creative on is when we get to rear shocks and steering extension. I believe that's the case for a 2 inch. For anything bigger; you may need brake lines lengthened and longer rad hoses. These, of course, all depend on the extremity of the lift size.

Find a picture of a Brat you like. We can give you a more detailed list of what is needed if we have a better idea.

Do you want an first, or second generation Brat? I don't know it that effects the lift process, or not.

Off-road section has tons of pics, and information on this stuff.

I bought my brat in Utah from a Usmb board member. I did a lot of searching before I found one in decent shape.

Mine is not lifted, and I don't intend to lift her.

Gl on your search and keep us updated!

i helped my little bro get his. he wanted a first gen and it was a pain finding(second gen were fairly common). we are both in texas, he lives in the houston area. Most of brats(first or second) that we saw were in dallas. Litereally could not find any closer than that but his ended up being really nice condition barn find. Was worth the drive and the expense of hauling it home. Keep your eye out and I am sure you will stumble across a good one
