You need at least 6" of lift, as you need to put an extra front crossmember stacked under the one you have. You need to build a subframe to support the t-case, custom shifters, and at the end of that you're putting all your power through the rear transfer gears in the transmission, which I've stripped the teeth off of a couple times running just RWD.
All in all, it makes more sense to drop a subaru body on a pickup frame than go through the whole process of transfer case and diff installation. Accept the limitations of the subaru and wheel within them. If you need something more capable, get something with a frame and solid axles.

I don't think 6" would be enough and 4" definitely wouldn't cut it at all.

Looks like this will make it much easier to get a tough transmission/tcase combo under a subaru. AND probably do it in a more compact package than any other divorced tcase option...which means less lift.
If I were building a lifted subaru. I would be all over this!! But I've already made the switch to toyota....
