I defiantly agree with you guy on the He's pretty lame on REALLY wheeling that thing.... It was for the Forester it self, all of his videos suck when it comes to 4Xing that thing.... Needs to get some REAL videos up...

OR

I'll build mine and put some real ones up :headbang:

NOTE: Wheeling Sucks... Foresters a beast, and not getting its full potential....

Because, does he want a Subaru Forester?? Or does he want a Rock Crawler?

The Forester actually does really well off road. Mine is far from as modded as this one, and very capable.

And the owner of this Forester, built it all himself, in his shop. So that says something too.

Very good point! Yeah I read its lower geared front and back VLSD, and it's a 4" lift. Really nice build!

One thing I seem to not see, is I don't think anyone makes higher than 2" that I can see. So I may have a market if people are willing to buy. :)

It's quite custom. Extended struts and blocks etc. He may not being used to it's full potential in this video, or in general, but that doesn't take away from the build quality.

Me? I'd argue with that. Almost wore out my winch when a lifted one with M/Ts and LSD showed up at my cabin to wheel. :brow:

Nice! I remember seeing a thread on nasco, but havnt seem his site! That pretty sweet! But holy Jesus! 400$ for a 2" lift! I can't even see a price on the 4"! Haha. Looks like I have my work cut out for me!

Haha that looks like a narly hole haha I'm surprised it came out. :brow: I know my stock forester does better in the snow than my buddy's lifter sammari and I had bald tires! Yeah I wouldn't be running an LSD either, full AAE LOCKER baby! In rocking climbing I'd beable to go anywhere. Haha.

How many inches if yours lifted? Haha.

Current vehicle? Only 3 inches of lift plus the tires that are 2 inches taller than stock.



I've had some 12-14 lifted Subarus in my time though.
