Went to a place in town, and thought I would drive around this place, lots of hills, LOTS of ruts from what seems like the Ford Big foot truck!! I drove across these ruts that were about 2- 2 1/2 feet deep, and the bump stops came into play, brushguard, skid plate, er, you get it. I didn't look at the trail I was taking and drove kinda fast over these ruts. (oops) Anyway, here are the pics I got...

That is awsome Rick! :) I am glad you have rear axles in there now.That rollbar looks pretty good in your vehicle.Can you get a nice articulation pic from the back of your Grabber Green Diff. I think that it is an awsome addition to all the other stuff you did to your brat. Hey I really like the seats in there too.Looks really good.

-Just givin ya a hard time about your diff.Cause someone has to.;)

Um, you forgot the red cherry bomb, it makes a nice addition to the grabber green diff! Especially with Christmas just around the corner!

And, I will go back, and take a pic of the car in a rut, but I didn't have a shovel or anything, so I didn't really want to get stuck, but I'll get a shovel and go back there and get a pic.


LOL and if I did get stuck, a ford festiva would have had to pull me out! HA!

You got yer' self a deal Dr.!!! Anytime you want to see it, let me know! I like the roll bar too, thanks!


When I got the car it had like 86+ GL wagon seats in it, and someone custom fabbed the "brackets" with bolts and metal strips. I simply used the same adapter and welded the seat to it. The driver's side was quite tricky, as the MR2 driver's seat has a completly different mounting system than the passenger side. But I just kinda slapped them together. I think that it definatly needs to be welded though!

Sweet! sounds like we have a Subaru Off road convoy!


Now, I have decided to keep off roading to a minimum until it gets lifted, (see bent mustache bar) but I hope it wil come this week, and I can get it in in a week or two.
