Well I appreciate you sharing your vast knowledge, grossgary, because I've been checking out some XT6s to buy, but I really want to use it for off-road as well as on-road. I had no idea of the differences between the cars. Someone should make lifts for those things.

the XT and XT6 are two very different animals for lifting. the XT being an EA82 platform can utilize the EA82 lift kit. the XT6 can not. the front struts, suspension, hubs and other things are different. if you want to put together you're own custom kit you're golden, but if you're looking for something to bolt up the XT kit will not work for the XT6.

i talked to AAA about supplying XT rear lift items and EJ series (impreza) stuff for the front in the hopes that would work since impreza struts can fit on the XT6....but that wouldn't work either for some reason. i forget why, but you could find the AAA thread (it's a long one) about the christmas group buy and see commentary there.

good luck and post pictures, i for one would hope it's an XT6!!


Good point! I'd virtually completely looked over that point!

I do remember that thread.....seems to me the front strut extensions would have worked, but the engine/tranny crossmember blocks were all different...but I could be wrong
