Offroading Subarus

Where we modify and drive flat fours

Glovebox Radio and Amplifier

Because the tread plate panel eliminates a spot to put a radio (not that I listen to the radio, but my brother insists I need one) I got my brother to make me a radio and amp holder under my glovebox. Next thing I know I don’t even have a glovebox anymore! Here’s what he came up with. There’s a captive nut welded to the body just above the glovebox insert. He made this to… Read More

I looked for a while and almost gave up on the idea of A/T’s or M/T’s for my 14″ Sunraysia wheels. But then I found I could get Kuhmo 27×8.5/14′s pretty cheap.
