Scott,

Stock drive train...so...not so extreme but...
http://www.ultimates...&cat=500&page=4
The body is extremely modified.

Bobbing is good but an exocage seems
like it might tax a Subaru too much.

Weight is the root of all evil for our cars.

Several on the USMB; I'll let them speak for themselves.

I would like to draw your attention to the custom suspesion done by Brumbyrunner in OZ. Lots more up travel, minimal gain in down travel, and a sweet custom setup.

Scott. PM me your mailing addy, I've got an extra copy of the Subarubicon dvd I'll send to you. You'll get a look-see at Mudrat's Weeble Wobble and Lumpycam's Unhatched.

I'll also add in the vhs to dvd copy of my "Favorite Footage" that shows my Bobbed Brat at the end.

Here is what it looks like as of last summer w/ 7"s of lift, 6" lift frame, 7" extended struts (not a strutcap extension) and coilover rears. 5spd D/r, nissan T-case, 17" bobbed bed, lift off front end:

Not like that though now. It's under decontruction, for a reconstruction. It's getting a new frame, new suspension, all kinds of new stuff. 90% custom built. Will be different from any Soob to date when it's done. Can't talk about it though, real hush hush, If I say too much, the "people" will lock me back in the basement again!

Oh, did I mention the ER27 above??

Well, its not super extreme, it still has ISP. But it does have 8in of body lift with the engine sitting on a subframe, divorced Nissan t-case and some real fat 30" Swampers.
As of this time it hasnt had a real test yet, HP style. I hope to before winter hits :brow:

bobbed = to shorten or modify say the rear section of the body to give you a better angle against a hill or a tree its common on the toyota pickups around here to have a shortened bed

like cut off the rear end after the wheels right?

cause shortening it before the wheels would make it easier to flip backwards on a hill

Just makin sure I know what you mean :)

The term actually comes from the Bobcat. You know, bob tail (or the lack of)? The term is even used in trucking, which means to run without a trailer behind you.
