If "pretty deep" means more than 4-6", buy a 4x4, not an AWD. I don't care what kind, Tracker, Land Rover, Jeep, Toyota, but get something made to handle off road. Subarus are something of a poser 4x4 machine. It's not what they were designed for. The OBS is made for forestry roads and the such where a little extra traction and ground clearance helps.
