Post Big Bad Forresters?

I have yet to see a U.S. Forrester that is really modified for offroad use. There is so much that can be done to that truck with off the shelf items. About 7 inches of lift can be added without any fabrication or heavy modifications. Gearing is available for much larger tires through the Austrailian dealers. It would seem with the parts readily available that someone would have set their Forrester up with large bore soft spring coilovers, fat all terrain tires, body armor etc.

For the record when the STX arrives that is exactly what I am going to do to it. I like the Forrester but the STX is a must have.

I love the Forester, I think it is a great car, just not my style. Sort of like a 55 Caddy or a 77 Cj5.

Sorry for the extra R

Now THAT is how it should have come from the factory!

And then you go up and out from there.
