Would it be as simple to do a RWD conversion on Subaru's red headed stepchild as it is on the Impreza? The answer seems obvious "Yes, but you are dumb." Let's discuss.

Never actually looked at the Justy 4wd system, but being that the motor and trans are not standard subaru I'm not sure it's as easy. The Justy motor is an inline 3 with the trans setup just like any other non-subaru FWD car.

I believe that the Justy still utililized a Viscous Coupling center differential despite haivng a transverse engine layout. Weld up the center diff and remove the axle shafts and I'd say you're good to go... ...until the rear differential or axles break
