I'm starting a full business making Subaru parts intakes, some bumpers, bull bars, headers etc.... I need product ideas. If there's a part you want made better that you already have? Send me a picture and give me a description

A winch-mount front bumper and swinging, spare-holding rear bumper with gas can mount(s) would be nice. rocker panel armor/sliders, maybe some integrated skid plates with said products. maybe its just me, but I'd really like to see an extended, long travel set up similar to what the prerunner guys run; but when you start spending more on suspension then your car's worth things can get real impractical real quick...

Skidplates
Light guards
Roof racks
Roll cages/Roll bars

I bet you could get a pretty good EA series strut bar made and people would want it... :Flame:

Any plans for dual port EJ headers?
(I still need to order my SPH! Hell I was the one who suggested that whole idea! My check from da gumment aint showed up yet... :-p Damn Student loan disbursements take FOREVER!!!)

Custom cat-backs maybe? (or cat to muffler at least)

Lots of tube bumpers!

That's all I can think of.

I'm going for mainly headers

east coast folks need exhaust parts due to rust.

both daily drivers i've had to weld back together and my buddies we just did last month and another forester needs more welding....all 2000+ model Subaru's.

but, all older subaru's have rusted away so the market around here for old stuff is almost non existent. my last 2 1980's Subaru's I bought came from Texas and California.

Dirty Wagon Industries? DWI for short, might be kinda catchy.. may mislead customers to think you only make things for wagons though..

Soobtubes/Soobtoobs? STS for short? Considering the round nature of your products..

I'll let you know if any more pop into the ol noggin.
