I've been researching and want to find out how much a bumper would cost for WRX fabrication. Except all funds are going towards a much needed motor rebuild.

114K miles (most of which was on 20G powaaah) and still kickin'!

I think you could use the stock bumper beam and weld on some 1/16" aluminum plates to make it more streamlined and a improve approach angles. that way, you maintain the safety of the stock beam and don't have to re-design the bumper to car attachment. Something like this:

Interesting indeed...I've always wanted to learn to fabricate, but it makes sense where the main bolt hangers for the bumperbeam to protude out for D-Ring attachment points. I once tried snatching another rig out of the trail and their bumper & d-ring attachment point ripped right off. OOPS for poor weld points.


Thanks for the tip!

nice...I was stuck up to the doors in red Carolina clay in my 1979 Blazer...it took a Wrangler and Landcruiser to pull me out. chain hooks through my frame holes...now the holes are elongated...D hooks are much better.

Question for those of you with light bars on the front bumper... do they help protect the front bumper? I do some dirt roads and stuff out in the NY country, went through a mud puddle that was deeper than i realized and it cracked my front bumper and broke two brackets. I was wondering if a light bar + a good skid plate would help protect from that.

08 WRX - stock suspension, w/ plans to upgrad to stock 09 suspension.

I.E.

the skid guard from rally innovations might help in a light impact but it won't protect the bumper in a hard hit. I don't think their light bar will do anything to protect the bumper.

the skid plate is a good idea if you're gonna be running dirt roads. it'll keep the oil pan pan protected.

I would grab a skid plate from Primitive Motorsports. www.get-primitive.com

They make different skid plate application thicknesses. But your light bar really won't protect against much. Basically good for what they say they are good for. Holding lights. Skid plates are what are good for protecting your underbody.

can't wait to post in this thread. I came to the realization that I now have too many scratches and dings to keep my car in super clean street mode. So I'll be selling my coilovers and BBS's.

Heres my rally prep plans in the works:

mounted 215/55/17s on my stock wheels
purchased stock 04 STI suspension
pre-paid and on the waitlist for a jackson rally 1" lift kit
primitive racing front skid plate
trade my hks carbon/ti for a catback w/ less bling and better clearance
light bar with some hellas
rally armour flaps
eventually some sort of custom rear bumper/hitch

Forester suspension is easy to install and manytimes if you find it on NASIOC it's dirt cheap too.. managed to snag mine all 4 struts/springs and top hats for 200 bucks shipped... so if you want to go that route put a add in the "Wanted" adds

I agree completely. 2003-2008 forester suspension will work well on 02-08 impreza sedans and also on 02+ wagons if you add some aftermarket camber bolts to get back some negative camber.

^certainly a good recommendation, but I'm just not looking to go that high.

I'm only running 215s on stock 17" wheels. I don't want to go any bigger and sacrifice acceleration. I daily drive my car atleast 80 miles a day and I only plan on exploring some fire roads, etc. Not to mention I got a great deal on the sti setup, and the lift kit.

...if I ever do get the itch to go higher/bigger, I'm sure swapping 04 sti suspension for the frosty setup won't be too difficult.

Just got my tires mounted today and although I'm still waiting on the lift kit, I'll be ripping out the coilovers and putting the sti stuff in tomorrow. pics to come.

Heh,

I have some new pics to post of the Outback.

Let me put it this way, I bent the lower spring perches on the rear struts


Oh, and I picked up a 98 Forester S to tinker with.

Suby #14, currently have 4 in the driveway (for 2 drivers! )

Okay guys. I finally have some offroad pics. Right now I have just stock 04 sti suspension and 215 tires. the 1" jackson rally lift kit has shipped out so it will be on this week. my front skid plate is also on its way. rally innovations light bar is coming soon aswell. maybe flaps, I'm undecided about that.

heres a few for now. the first is how my car looked last week for a comparison...

It's an 83 that I converted from front wheel drive to 4X and then added a lift. It also has my hatch's motor and 5 speed dual range (hi/lo) tranny. It has an LSD in the rear. It's almost done as far as road worthiness. It'll get its dings pulled and fixed, then I'll repaint it black again. I'm trying to think up some kind of scheme for the hood that would involve Soobs and wheeling. I'll take that design to the Art Institute of Seattle and hopefully get some starving student to hook me up for a reasonable price.

I believe it is the only lifted 4X coupe on the planet.
