I drove my Soob out of the shop this last week with the new SJR lift installed. Drove it to work the last couple days and it handles great on the road.
Specs:
88 GL Wagon, 6" SJR Lift, AA front Bumper
It was mostly a bolt on conversion, with a few small parts that needed modified or fabricated. I hope to publish a fully documented story complete with detailed photos of each part.
Here's a few photos:

nice, it's like that puzzle in the paper: find at least 3 differences between the two pictures. I see two besides the lift and wheels. :clap:

Great observation.
Besides the lift and wheels.

Hubs are now 6-bolt, notice the 6-bolt Nissan wheels bolted directly on.
Front bumper is now one from AA.
Hood has been replaced with a straight one.
Top roof rack now has the cross bars bolted on.
Front mudflaps have been removed to clear larger tires (215/70r15).
Front skid plate has been extended from under engine up to bumper.
Front broken grill replaced by unbroken one.

It's nice to have a second parts car of the same color.

Actually, mine was missing one wheel cover from each side and I had to move them both to the same side just to get the picture.
