    I just picked up an '86 Sub for cheap!The body is in great shape,No dents a little surface rust.It runs sound even with alot of miles(mostly highway)Only problem is the T-case doesn't have high range.It has a rebuilt T400(put in in Sept.) and 208.I am pulling the trans and transfer and selling the trans for $300.Then putting in a rebuilt T350 and 205 combo I have laying around.It will get a lift,probally a 4" for now since I have a set of front leaves extra.Will probally do a poor mans shackle flip in the rear.Easier than pulling the tank!Oh yeah I paid $600 for it.It also has 4.10 gears with a gov lok in the rear that works.Should make a great family mild trail/DD/tow rig.Now I just need to get busy and finish this than finish the Heep.Brady /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
