    I'm not up on my Subaru repair knowledge, but I'd say the engine rebuild kit comes wrapped around your morning newspaper[​IMG]

    Being a Subaru owner I know of a great site for all the Subaru heads, if it's anything Subaru these guys know it. There has been much discussion on lifting your Roo and you can find all the parts to do it there.

    One of my friends had 2 of them. They are pretty neat truck/cars thingys. The back top came off and he had seats in the back.

    Be careful that Subie site is just as addicting as this one if your into building up your vehicle. I had to sell my offroad Subaru RX to break the habbit, I still have a XT6 that's my daily driver.

    One of our buddies always brougt a GL to the pits. He hacked the roof,built a roll bar and beat the sucker like a 4x4. He planned on lifting it. He said he would have to make blocks for the rear susp. and the front susp. and drivetrain cradle.
