We'd prolly have full 6" suspension lift kits by now for Subaru platforms; but people whine about paying $400 for a simple 3" body lift. People pay thousands of dollars for suspension lift kits on other vehicles and that's why they have aftermarket support.

Part of that comes from people not wanting to put that much money into a car they only paid a couple hundred bucks for. I was just thinking that it would be cool to have the first rock crawling 'Prezza not many off road 'prezzas, but I would if I had a properly equiped ride, it's stock now, but the shocks are shot, so I was thinking while I was in there, I may as well see what I can do to make it more capable off road.
I'd say lift it, put bigger tires on it, then actually bust up CVs on the trail. Then let us know what would be the best way to implement some heavy duty custom CV joints.
I think youll notice you want low gear reduction before you blow any axle assemblies.

*edit* yeah, the gearing is an issue, I am thinking either a divorced atlas Tcase or a D/R conversion. though mine is an auto so it would be nice to keep that for off road.

Go to the local J/Y, snag a few front drive shafts from Cherokees, break out the welder and tell us how they do as axles on a Sube.
