Ok. first up is my '86 Brat. 3" BYB lift kit, rear disc brakes, Genuine Subaru 14" Chromed Alloys. Otherwise, entirely stock yet, even the radio. Only 90,400 miles on it. Dash is perfect, seats are perfect... Purchased it in '99 with 75k or 77k on it.... This one sees no winter salty roads, and no offroading... will be my son's first car....
next up is my '82 Brat. Offroader definitely.... in this pic it had the following...
5" lift (combined BYB, SJR, RX front springs, and some home-brew stuff
5 speed swap, xt6 clutch set-up, custom driveshaft
weber 32/36 with 155 mains.
MSD 6A Ignition, Accel SuperCoil, recurved distributor
ea81 with Delta torque cam and ea71 pistons
27" SSRs on Toyota wheels
custom bumpers front/rear, 4500# winch
remote oil sender unit
welded rear diff
probably lots more I'm forgetting.....
and after a few years of wheeling, and breaking stuff, and modifying it to be stronger, I finally had enough of the limits of the IFS/IRS/gearing and the breakage I was seeing. needed too much of the skinny pedal to keep up with the others.... so now it looks like this (mostly. more pics soon with bumper and cage, etc...)
unlifted it, and put the engine/trans back in their stock locations, and had my fab guru friend Chris (BlueJeep) redesign and fab everything....
