once again any info or coments would be appreciated
I know that it may be more common to buy an XY ute over an XT ute ,But if you are going for a ground up rebuild , i think it is wiser to pick an XY for two reason's...One is that , the XY seem to have a better resale value which is important if at any stage you have to or decide to sell your completed/incompleted project and hope to recooperate cost's in some way. Also , XY is more practical...Ventilated Disc's , Colapsable Steering Column[Ask anyone who has tried to pull out an XR-XT Steering Box before...One word ,'Nightmare']Also , an XW-Y Booster will not fit straight onto an XR-T Firewall without significant modification. Many people do this conversion as XT Disc Brake part's can be hard to find or not very servicable[I don't think they make XT Disc Brake Master Cylinder Kit's anymore???]In the end ...pick the one that you really like the most ...as it will be your car , and should be a statement representing your tastes and values , practical or not , it's all about what you want !!!
