I want to change the front bumper so I can fit a nice size driving light kit in it and not looked rigged. Any suggestions for a 01 Leg wagon?

Bajah. Then you can fit a front mount as well.

...or a 2002 bumper.

I have been looking at the Baja hood for the extra air flow and found out that it is alum. I know I can fit up to a 04 bumper from a GT or Outback. I am worried that the Outback would be to wide looking for the car. I would like to put a pair of projectors in it.

Search for Baja Hood and you'll get a few good threads. From what I've seen, the Baja hood is NOT aluminum, but steel. A few guys have tried getting the B4 hood from overseas, with mixed results. Some get steel, some get aluminum.

yeah, this is old news. baja hood is NOT aluminum. the new body style legacy and forrester hoods are aluminum. and i'm not sure that ALL new body style models are that way. it may only be the turbo models (which have the hood scoop, so they are the only models that matter anyway).

It is not just the turbo models. I drove a 2005 OB while my car was getting a new short block compliments of SOA. The '05 OB had and aluminum hood. I was quite impressed at how light it was.

Right now my car is N/A, but not for very long. I am planning a 05 LGT swap in the future, that is why I want the Baja hood with the scoop. I am wanting to put projectors in the bumper, But with the current one on the car they dont make anything for it but the wimpy OEM light.

what size driving light are you looking for? I have a pair of 4" driving lights behind the grill of my '99 outback and your grill should be bigger than mine, maybe an option instead of buying a new bumper?
