Ive got a pair of 20 liter NATO jerry cans, and they will be full. I do need a new spare tire though... Will definitely be bringing some spare axles and the puller tool for them, and plenty of bailing wire and zip ties :lol::banana:

I was looking at some of the Subaru off-roading vids.. And i noticed alot don't have lifts.. They just have the fenders cut out.. what do you do about the back door? Do you weld it? or just relocate the rear seal?


The rear seal is way on the inner part of the door frame. I haven't needed to cut that much out to afect the seal.

Yeah, I figured that out when I measured where to cut. It's all done now, and I'm installing a winch on the front bumper.

Does anyone have a spare CB antenna lying around? the one I have barely gets signal past 30 feet away, since its only a foot tall magnetic one.

I for the longest time was aginst welding the rearend, but after I did I will never have a wheeler without one, the driveablity of the rig does not go down whats so ever, and you will be very limited on where you will be going, If EC is anything like Walker, You will beat your car harder with out a welded rearend, just trying to get a run at the big things, or you just wount make it without a pull.....................

So, how does one weld the rearends in these cars? I might just do that then..

you're saying that I can drive it around town and long road trips with it welded? I'm not gonna blow up my CV's?

You can always pull an axle out in the rear if you are going to go for a long drive, but for the most part you can leave it in. All you have to do it drop the rearend out pull the cover off and weld the spider gears. Fill it back up with fluid and put it back in........... I'm sure there is a thread abou it somewhere on here.

Sorry Zap for gettin off the subject here.

:grin: No problem. I think it's a good idea to let the new guys know what's up. Cuz ya see, about the second time we're having to pull out a new guy cuz he didn't believe us, that's when folks start getting impatient and less fun is had. Feelings get hurt, tempers flare, all that. ;)


Wolf, you'd do well to listen to Jeff, he's been wheeling these Soobs for teh better part of 10 years.
Do a search in the off road part for welded diffs, there's plenty of threads there that will help you.

Maybe put an add in the wanted section of the classifieds and ask to see if anyone has an extra they'd sell cheap.

I didnt belive people at one point, but Troy (sti-wolf) has a pretty open mind, I think he is taking it all in an will have it down pretty good in a short period of time. He has a way better start than I did back in the day........
Posted Image Posted Image That was WCSS3 and it took me a while to take in what everyone around me told me. Like weld the rearend, lift, and good tires. At a certian point you start to know what you like for the way you wheel, I liked to use lots of the skinny pedal and I would go through Rear axles like mad in Gen2's so I went to Gen3 Wagons and put an EA81 in it, over time I have found you can do a lot better wheelin by not standing on the gas, I try not to even break the tires loose on real technical trails, but in the next couple of weeks troy is talkin about coming back up and we'll hook him up with a lift and welded rearend............................

The easiest would be Chinook Pass.
Stay on hiway 410 till you get to Buckley, then take hiway 165 all the way to Evans Crk ORV.
I'll see if I can get a Google map up for you.
