I'd love to hear what everyone else has done. I truly don't even know where to begin since the only work I've done on my cars in the past has been general maintenance and simple part replacements (radiators, alternators, hoses, spark plugs, belts, etc.).
I traded mine in for a Tacoma. It wasn't worth the time or money for me to fix mine... I had wanted to just do a 6MT swap, which would be the trans + rear diff, Spec B axles, clutch assembly.

The time/money part came up when the 5MT in mine died, and I need something to get me to and from work. Plus, the Taco is a 4X4 with a locker, so it's stupid capable off road compared to the Baja.

If you want to mod it, do it. But it's expensive...
