There aren't many Bajas out there, even fewer are lifted.

Subaru of Gwinnett in Atlanta, GA will be doing one, it'll be ready next week...I'll post with my opinions on how the install went.

They've also got the ONLY 2.5" cat back system available..I'll be writing on that also...it's pretty sweet.

They've also got a yellow one they color matched. I'll try to post some pics

I think MSRP on the ones that are being made is about 600 bucks....not sure...

the colormatch is in some of these pics of the SE region warehouse meet.

just to pass on that the lift kit went in well...it took ALL day, and i've still a bunch of things to do.

One disappointment was that two of the bolts are 12x100's when they should be 12mmx80mm long...I'm on a bolt hunt on monday.

I put the truck back down on her wheels, and it looks great. I'll post with how the exhaust reinstall goes...and hopefully some pics.

what's the actual lift in inches? does it use spacers? and if so where on the frame? How much did it cost? and finally how was the exhaust redone to cope w/ the axle being lower than it is right now mine's got the rattles when it goes in reverse it will surfice for the time being.

Ohh and imo that color matched yellow looks kinda odd?? i dunno looking at mine all day i kinda expect the tonka toy two tone look .

oh well. I'll put up pics of my in dash dvd install when my car gets back.

the lift is about 3 inches. 2" from body spacers, basically wherever mechanicals bolt to the body, there's a little cube of aluminum to lift the body. It's a HUGE job...with a lift it took me 10 hours.

I love the color match personally. we'll be doing a black one (lowered?) maybe on 17's...
