Here is the 03 H6 L.L. Bean gettin high. Mom loves the cushier ride and easier entry/exit of this mild lift.

The lift is our newly designed HighGuys 2 inch 3rd Gen Legacy kit. Check out the thread in Vendor forum.

Just thought I'd post this, since the transmission just went out and the rust means it probably won't get fixed (that's 2 for us this year...). it's my Dad's.

'94 Legacy GT wagon (yep, raised roof). Essentially a home-made first-gen Outback.

stock 2.2 and 4.111 5MT
BG Outback struts and springs
WRX wheels with 205/60r16 tires
t-leg front brakes

Posted Image

how it looked when we got it 3 or 4 years ago. $350 on ebay :banana:

we put about 100k on it since then.
