How hard is it to find this car with a DR?

You just have to look harder.

I would think in Colorado they would be pretty easy to find. Although when I was looking for a DR wagon I couldn't seem to find one for the longest time and I live in Washington where they practically grow on trees. Keep looking.

I believe you... We used to get them from Japan. they are the same box as the Legacy, just with the EA front diff and housing.
You could always buy a car with the single range and change it to the dual setup.

with a DR?
Yep Its a 87 RX 3 door Turbo 5 Speed with D/R trans
This is mine Minus the white hubcaps and the Kid in the back.The wheels were replaced with the 8 spoke wheels and the kid is from the previous owner who took the pics

The dual trans came in a lot of the wagons, but to my recollection (and correct me if I'm wrong) ALL RX with manual transmission has the dual range ALL WHEEL DRIVE, not FOUR wheel drive, this unit is special and quite hard to find as only the RX and some XT6(I think) had the AWD unit with Diff Lock.
Fit and function is the same, except the 4wd D/R box has an option for front wheel drive, four wheel drive, or Low range four wheel drive. These will interchange with the AWD units, I believe. The gearing can be different, though, so be careful switching them around.( since the ft diff is part of the trans, a matching rear diff will have to be found)

ARe the 2wd's set up for a bolt on application if i wanted to convert one to a 4x4?
All the ones I've seen don't have the nuts in the body but I have converted a 2WD using this attached method
Lots of work but if you want it... anything is possible
