conversion from AWD to 4WD
could i take a transfer case from a 80s loyal and bolt it right on to a 2012 wrx? and if i can what other mods will have to be done to it. im just curious about this so if there is anyone that can help me please let me know if that could work.

Why would you want to do this?

psinuse 10-28-2013 05:12 AM

No it won't bolt up.

Nathan21 10-28-2013 09:25 AM

I agree with RayRay!
AWD is so much better then 4WD

Haw1es 10-28-2013 09:29 AM

Calwrx17 even though it won't bolt up, why were you thinking of converting it?

RayRay 10-28-2013 10:09 AM

There is no reasonable explanation for this

After seeing the pictures my sister takes on Colorado trails in her Jeep, I think I have a clue as to why the OP is asking this question. However, it might be easier to mate a Subaru WRX body with a 1977 K5 Blazer chassis.

Then buy a jeep Fol. :rolleyes:

BLAZE2099 10-29-2013 05:39 AM

Nah, I'm with sleepr. I've seen similar for trailing. That's a good idea.
Besides, jeeps suck

arewmors 10-29-2013 05:46 AM

That is a good idea Randy, that sleeper stated. And I do agree, jeeps suck. It's just maybe a lot more work than someone may want to put into a fairly new car, but if you have the time, moneys, ability, and knowledge, then I'd say do it up. Please post pictures of the build along the way, because I definitely want to see this! :D

Calwrx17 10-29-2013 08:26 PM

my whole reasoning is because i just want to make my wrx different from everyone else's. I've already put a snorkle on mine and i am still wanting to find someone that has a newer forester that is willing to trade their suspension with mine so i can lift it up 3". and i have a CB radio in it as well.

BLAZE2099 10-30-2013 05:14 AM

I get ya. Check out
I'm sure somebody over there would love to trade suspension.
May cost you a case of beer and bloody knuckles though.
