R200? what's that?  Aren't sccobs either R160 or R180?  And I hear ARB is workingon a 180 locker...

Please educate me on the 200 bit?

 

Also a little lost on the locking hubs mod. . . . what would that do for you?  I've had my (front) spindles and bearings apart but haven't seen the front torn out of a real 4x4 to get the locking hub deal. . . 

 

always great to read your inspirations K!  and as always, great fab and build work!

Ciao

Superu I will be running the Toyota hubs/knuckles to use the locking hub part. I idea being these parts are used on heavier vehicles with larger tires and they hold up, so on the Subaru I should be dialed.

Well I sold my 95 Impreza L. This is good and bad. Good cause we are looking for a 05-08 Forester. We need a stock wagon again.....got a little one on the way!!!! The WRX wagon is a little small to throw the dogs all the way in the back when the baby comes. But this is bad cause now I cannot tear the GL apart to do the suspension for awhile. I will need it for daily duties again.

I may be mistaken but are there GL's out there with rear shoulder seatbelts? I would like shoulder belts for the rear and I would like to have some headrests on the rear seat as my 8 year old is growing like a weed now.

89 gl and late 88's had rear shoulder belt and Loyale's. My 89 Gl has them. So I would assume they put them in all the later models.

Nice rig by the way!

Good news.....finally takeing the GL out of state. We are heading to Prescott AZ for the Prescott Rally. We are leaving a day early so hopefully we can get some wheelin in. Caught up on some maintenance finally. New inner and outer tie rods, brakes, painted front bumper, swapped a/c o rings for the correct ones, radiator flush with new thermostat and new cap. Just a few of the smaller items she was in need of. 

 

Bad news.....come feb 2014 our family will be plus one more (this is acutally good!!!! but bad for the car) I fear it is going to get tight for 2 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. Not sure exactly what this means yet but may need a larger wheeler. I guess if I had the right offer I would sell and build something with more room for us. :(

Hooray for PR!!

 

Hooray for family!!  Kind of in the same boat (sans dogs) with our OBS and my legacy. The Leg has the bigger back seat for the kiddies, but the OBS is newer and more power, etc. etc.

I'm kind of sole on an 09 OB. (maybe a '13 FXT but I need to do that side-by-side comparison ;)

 

Anyhoo, Good luck out in Prescott and say Hi to Jim (from Flag) for me! ;)

Yeah kinda torn right now. Still have a good 4 months to figure it out but reality seems to be setting in pretty quickly. We take our dogs everywhere too, they are part of the family and take up a bunch of space. 

 

Ill be sure to tell Jim HEY!

Well I think we have decided to sell the GL  :(  Our trip to Prescott was amazing. It gave us plenty of time to think about this decision and we need a larger off road vehicle. I will be posting it in the classifieds.
