your best bet would probably be a fulltime 4wd, found in gl-10s and RXs. an AWD tranny out of a newer subaru would probably require a lot of fabrication and cussing.

I'm wondering if the part time d/r 5 spd tranny is a good chioce. It would be easy. I find it has served me quite well and I always had the notion that a car in 2wd gets better milage. I like having the option to shut of the 4x4.
The power and clearence have always been my problem. I'd like to have the EA82T but don't wanat to do a swap. I'm just going to find a mint turbowagon. As far as clearence goes, I have seen many lift kits here. Maybe a lift and some big tires would go a long way
