This is my 2013 Forester XT Touring. I was sold on the AWD and the turbo motor, what a great combination.

Subaru AWD in action:


Bought this thing new in late 2012, traded in my Honda Civic and abandoned all things Honda (drove them for 10+ years).

First trip when it was still stock was to Lake Travis in Austin:



Did a carbon fiber wrap on the upper part of the grille:



Went with some bigger tires and installed some Rally Armor mudflaps:





Went on a Colorado to New Mexico ski trip. This was a cover used by Subaru of America on their Facebook page.



Went to the local OHV Park and got a little dirty:



Installed a Primitive Racing front skid plate and added front and rear recovery hooks, now a permanent addition to the vehicle:



Hanging out with the Subie Bros at Cars and Coffee Dallas:



6th Street Austin empty at 6am, factory HID's



The carbon fiber wrap was peeling so I decided to redo the grille with platidip. I also added a Forester F badge on the grille:

Rear mudflaps kept getting ripped off on the trails, so they had to go:

Installed a 2" lift kit from Anderson Design and Fabrication:



No sway bars for maximum wheel travel:



Took a trip to the beach in South Texas, PINS to be exact:



Installed some 02 WRX wheels with larger tires:



Doing some trails out at the local OHV park:

Thanks!
Yeah I'm waiting for a sport grille to pop up used somewhere, I'll probably jump on it.
