I 4x Jeeps and I never pictured a Lifted Subaru w/ 27" or bigger tires out running on the same trails I am on.

Even after the loss in gearing, and the loss in freeway power, i still think its more than worth it. Always best to have one for the street... and one for the woods.

[i]...Now that I have the 2.7L six and dual T-case... [/B]
Hmmm... that sounds like a project . You wouldn't happen to have any more details on that, would you? Maybe in another thread, so we don't hijack this one, though

but adam by the dual tcase's you mean the subaru and nissan right?? or did you make a doubler after the transaxle? you'd have no driveline...
if he's talking about the divorced nissan transfercase. you couldn't use the pkdavis lift. you'd be utilizing a subframe. and everyone that's done them, that i know of, are like at least 6" lift.
basically, you make the lift (or i'm sure you could talk to mudrat. these types of lifts are a lot more spendy than getting a pk lift though. lots of custom fabbing.) custom fabbed blocks on a subframe. you suck the tranny and engine back to original position on the body. put a short little driveline out of the tranny to the tcase. from the tcase it goes to the rear diff, then to the front via a driveline to another rear diff, modified into your front engine crossmember underneath the tranny. which makes it so you can put a lsd in the front too!! lower gearing like around 60:1 to 70:1 final crawl ratio. you can also change the diff ring and pinions up to like 4.44:1.
you'd also be the first i've heard of with a EA82 set up that way.
sorry for semi jacking the post.
