tell him to look at the stinkin cherokees, they have unibodies, and you can run circles around those dorks.

Look at the pictures of my rust holes in this thing. Then look at how hard I offroad it. The unibody is holding fine. It still goes straight down the freeway at 80mph. Will it last forever? No; and neither will a Jeep XJ unibody cherokee! Yet people wheel the piss out of them. There are lots of beefed up XJ's here in MN. There are lots of beefed up Subarus around the world.

I've done some pretty harsh stuff to my roo... nothing's come of it.. besides the normal stuff that happens when you get large rocks stuck in moving parts

However the body on these babies are solid.
I've sawed them in half and cut them in two, down the middle lengthwise.
They are a whole lot more solid than you'd think.
If you don't have any major rust issues...
I'd think your Subie will take some punishment with out hurting the integrity of the unibody.
However...once you tweek your unibody the car would develop major handling and suspension problems. It would screw the car up big time!

I'll need to do a lot more mild mudding and trail riding before I get cocky enough to make all 4 wheels leave the ground. Only 2 at a time for now
Good plan. Get your rig trail ready, put some miles on it offroad doing some easy trails, and go from there. Learn how wide your vehicle is, how long it is, what you can and can't do.
You wont be bending anything irreplacable!

my friend filmed me jumping my soob about 20 feet across the ground over some train tracks. It was #^%#$ scary. But wow.... didn't even bottom out the suspension.
I've got the perfect tracks for that in Tucson... I jump them 80% of the time I go over them. 62mph is perfect.. smoother than goin 10mph over them.. I'll get pics and vids when I get a chance! I've jumped the legacy in a few other spots.. One was REAL scary I thought I was gonna hit the next up and flip end over end... doin about 80... but I dropped.. perfect in the bottom of the wash.. all 4 tires .. didnt bottom out.. I was thrilled. JUMP YOUR ROO! They like it.
