Dually rear wheels....now that's gotta be a first? Would love to see that.
I'll take a combo of what everyone said, put it in a blender and should have an awesome rig. But for me it will just be my "Project Cheap" since I don't have the cash to even think about half that stuff.

My Ultimate,

Hatchback
3.0 H6
T-5 RWD transmission
Atlas T-case 4:1 or higher low range,
Unimog or C-303 Portal Axles, possibly even Hummer axles, Lockers of course, with the Cybrid H-6 steering pump
38-44 inch Swampers

And of course all the fun little additions that make life worth while, winch, welter, on board air.

With all that weight, i would certainly think that the Hatch would need serious reinforcement structurally, as well as for safety.

Yeah, i know, its not much of a Subie anymore, but putting the H-6 through an old D/R tranny, and then trying to turn some serious tires, you are the weakest link good bye.

For the purpose of this project, what is the definition of a "Subaru?"
And what is the intended purpose of this offroad "Subaru?" Is it to be a rock crawling buggy? Desert racer? Multipurpose trail rig / daily driver? Heavy expedition vehicle or light weight?

First thing your gonna upgrade is your career to afford all that.

Skip the stupid golf cart and lawn mower; youll get done with the uber'ru much faster.

Be sure to post some pics when you get done :rolleyes:

I want more of a go-anywhere-and-never-get-stuck off-roader, rather than a die-hard serious rock crawler... But anyway, here it goes:

My '95 Impreza L with the 2.5 motor already in it
AA 4" body lift kit
Outback struts
Scorpion springs
Some infamous super-swampers (wheels, undecided...)
Upgraded bushings and mounts all around (already have a few of those)
Baja XT 4.44 VTD 4EAT modified with a front LSD along with the rear LSD
Upgraded torque converter
Tranny oil cooler
Full under-body armor
Roll cage
Custom snorkel of course
Exhaust routed to a higher point on the car (for water)
Sealed chassis (water, there are a few holes that need plugging)
Water-protected battery and other engine area components
Gutted interior w/ rubber mats (for cleaning ;) )
Roof mounted spare tire
Extra luggage rack on the trunk
Extra fuel cans located in the trunk I guess...

What else am I missing?
