Making a Subaru Trail Ready???
Posted 29 December 2003 - 08:35 PM
1. I want to run around 30-31" tires so I plan on about 6" of lift, how would I go about making a 6" lift?
2. Gears? I hear you guys talking about a divorced Nissan T-Case, What is this and how do I go about doin it?
Thats about all the questions for now, but I'm sure there will be more to come.

He's done at least two of these now - and there's of course unhatched - Lumpycam, the man who started it all by designing the first Subaru with the nissan T-case swap. There's a lot of fab work involved in that, but no one on the board except Mudrat79 can really tell you what all it involves, since I believe he's the only one on here that has done it (correct me if I'm wrong guys....). Lumpycam of course knows - but he's not seen on this board often, and lately not at all that I can tell....
The lift itself is actually pretty straighforward - you just unbolt the engine and drivetrain from the vehicle, and lift the body up - putting blocks in-between. On the 6", there's usually some x-braces involved to stiffen up the lift peices. The lift itself has been discussed many times - do a search for it. Subarubrat's web site has good info on it as well.... look him up in the member directory.
If you go with 31's, you'll probably want a little extra power - either an EJ engine transplant, or a H.O. EA81 would be in order probably. Just a heads up.
