Still in the engineering stages, along with the "I need this too" stage, but plans are;

'82 BRAT GL, ER-27 engine, either DR-4 or DR-5 tranny, T-case mod, 6-lug rims, thinking an 8" but leaning towards a 10" lift (depends on tire size), Rhinoed interior and bed, custom air-gate (by soobme), custom bumpers (by yours truly), front/rear winch mount, on-board air, custom dual exhaust, and more things I have in mind, but haven't worked out the details of, yet. But I'm a working on it.

Been real busy working on other peoples rides, and wrenching on farm equipment lately, but I'll have more time to devote to the BRAT after this week-end.

I have PKs old rig, a 1984 wagon with the 3/2 lift in it. Saw it on the board and flew down and got it, before he changed his mind, again!

Sorry PK!

still going strong.

No Weber yet, but I've got a LSD rear end, K&N filter, pretty rad stereo, and a TWB rack.

See you all in Hood River!

well, most of you have seen my wagon... and the ones before it (pics are spread out in my album...)

the current status is in limbo.. my wagon sits in the customization shop engineless at this time.. it is undergoing cosmetic upgrades, as well as some armor and major drivetrain/power system upgrades... some people know whats gonna happen, to the rest of you it will be a suprise!

otherwise, it has a 2/3" PK lift, and 27" BF goodrich A/T tires on 14" steel pugs.... the rest is to be disclosed later :brow:

Hatch patrol member... dont remember when joined, but back in 99/00 i learned of the board when I met Ezap, and started offroading with him when I bought my first lifted soob (the white 81DL hatch from J-Zigi)

I dont know if I am considered a Oregon offroad member, but I have wheeled a couple times with Mudrat, Hondasucks and Caboobaroo.... so maybe?

also this summer, planning to make the west coast round trip down the the border and back (or at least a pass thru San Diego and all of Cali and the coast)

Thought I would bring this one back out. How have things changed in 9 months?

Well, Mine was a rear solid axle(Nissan) running a Nissan transfer case and 31's. Just installed a '90 Isuzu rear axle with disc brakes, Oh yeah, no more drums for me!! Working on rear E-brakes and better travel up front.

Well, I now have a lifted rig, sorta. Still running the original 13 inchers with 185/80 rubber. It has a 3" lift, but the rear isn't fully lifted correctly yet. I also have an ea82 sitting in the back of my truck waiting to be transplanted into it.

There's a couple pics in my gallery, I've since then straightened and replaced the broken and missing pieces.

Bolt sizes for the kit were way off for the smaller lift blocks up front. Caused many, many problems. Holes in lift blocks were not drill centered. PITA. Looks good though. Jay

These are pretty photos and all, but this is a Roll Call for Lifted Soobs.

Please stick to posting your pic of your lifted Soob and a brief description about it.

Well, I guess I should chime in now that I have a lifted rig. Its an 81 hatch with a 3"/3" lift with 27" Kumho MTs, stripped interior and a snorkel. This used to be owned by Superrallyroo, so if you've seen this car earlier in this post, thats why.

Not much has happened since those pics were taken due to driveshaft and transfer case placement issues. High angle driveline was consulted, and we decided it would be the solution as soon as we get out of Highschool. Not bad for 2 seniors and a junior with limited time.
