older discussion[edit]

Over a decade after its production run ended, it is more popular than ever, with modifications and major upgrades (including a lift kit) now available. For all things BRAT visit, and for more broad Subaru matters.

For general trivial information: In the later 1980s and early 1990s at the wrecking yards (auto salvage yards selling used auto parts) where I worked very few BRAT parts were sold. What WAS in great demand were the seats bolted into the BRAT's bed. Owners of pick-up trucks bought them to allow passengers to ride in the pick-up bed in semi-comfort and to allow them to wear seat belts to increase passenger safety. I rarely see a BRAT on the road in the USA today.Obbop 01:43, 17 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
