Default Hello from Arizona, USA

Hi All
My Urabus: 1986 4WD GL Wagon. I bought it in 1999 with 153,000 miles on the clock. I am the third owner, and it now has 366,000 miles. Has been Weberized with a 38/38 DGAS. Currently on jack-stands for axel and brake R&R.
Looking forward to learning more about repairing and upgrades. Would like to start getting ready to burn high percent Ethanol. Hopefully the big carb will allow for this. Will also be looking to at least add a 2" lift for desert rambling.

G'day & Welcome Mike - seems like you're getting a pretty good run from the GL.

Hi Mike,

I am not too far to the north of you and I went with 2" SubieLiftOZ partly because his kits have been extensively tested in the OZ desert. There might be bigger lifts available for your model, I really know nothing about pre-95 Subarus.

366k is just awesome!
