on a up note... no pun intended, he started right up, with a small puff of smoke, and the only fluid loss was mabey a 1/4 cup of break fluid. kinda strange. now the question is do i fix or no? all i care about is function, and the only thing not pullng its weight are the windows ie windsheild(obviously) the pillar behind the drivers door is bent in about an inch and a half, and the rear gate has a 1/4 in. gap,and sinse i bring my 2 yar old son with me sometimes (not last time) i will not put up with exhaust in the car. but mechanically he is good to go, absolutly no alignment probs etc.

I think he said "drifting". Lesson learned: lifted rigs are not meant to be drifted.

well you can drift all day if you counter steer, and keep it to a low speed.
my brother was behind me and i couldnt see him in the rear view any more, so i tried to slide sideways to a stop, but because of blown struts and honda springs in the rear, i more or less bounced into a roll, ithink on my last bounce i may have landed in a small rut tha didnt help things either. none the less i knew someday i would roll(i like to drive wrecklessly on logging roads if i know the terrain) this time it just ended wreckfully...
i thought i woul roll in the snow though, none the less i dont care that i rolled, it was fun.

yeah i know, but i am startin a ea81 hatch rig and this one will be my daily. if i can find a feee loyale body ill just do the swap, i have dome it before, and it didnt take that long. engine, trans, lift, running gear, interior, 6 lug etc. plus it is still full of dust all the time from sinking it up to the windshield in mud. my old loyale had fallen off a cliff and i could never get the back to stop leaking exhaust, so i baught the red one and swapped EVERYTHING.
