It doesnt look that bad, I'd toss a lift kit on it and drive it as-is :D

that's pretty good.....goes to show how rigid & stiff the chassis are.

Not much to reply to but look at the number of views - think it might be worth 'thumbtacking' for a while?

Same thing happened to a professor of mine a little over a year ago. He rolled his 98 Forester 3 times and was back in a Subaru, 99 Forester, in less than a week :)

I have to agree. I would leave the car as is and drive it. It looks cool that way :) Unfortunately in some sick way I wish the top was more crunched, justifying a convertable soft top forester... install roll bars and turn it into a jeep wrangler idea.

A friend rolled my Toyota FJ RAGTOP in Twain Harte, CA many years ago. All it did was crack the windshield. The soft top and tubing frame supported the whole rig.

Gotta love deep snow if you're gonna do a roll.
