Back poking around looking at the progress on a few of the trucks I envied. lol Thinking about a Level II next year for a second vehicle, to keep the wear and tear on the Subaru down.
A few pics of how it looks at the moment..

Me gusta...

I keep looking at the 2011s that they just started advertising, how to find the funding...I still like your gen the best though.

Considering you all drive trucks! lol I figured you would appreciate winter/rally mode a little more..




Started snowing a little a few weeks ago so I've got it back to a little more functional height with snow tires and Rally Armors to get ready for winter!

You can get lifts for them,, I could probably put it higher than stock with my coilovers but its still 2" under stock front and rear,, was 2.5" lower in the front but lifted it a little for winter and is actually a much better height, i dont scrape the front bumper half as much as I used to.

I know a guy in town into subarus who does sheet metal and made my turbo/IC heat shield. He measured up a car a little while ago to start making them, I am getting one for sure! the oil pan is the first thing that will get hit down there and that will be trouble. And also one for the rear diff.

I thought I might miss the truck even more when the winter hit, but if anything it would be sitting in the parking garage not being used while I have fun in the Subaru! lol


I do miss the clearance, but the amount of control in the snow with this thing is unreal. Wherever I point it and hit the pedal it goes in a hurry. Even with the crazy amount of snow in the past few days I haven't even come close to getting stuck once while there are cars and rwd trucks stuck all over the place around the city.
