From the experiences I've had over the past several years with off roading my Forester(s), you don't need ANYTHING to take them off road, or even in some very hairy situations. Most of the craziness...

I think you're getting a little paranoid. Give it some time to collect more data. I doubt you've done a couple of tanks since the service and may find that it goes right back to where it was.

Yep, but putting the car in a race will also break things too.....it just comes with the territory. The rear tabs are weak for sure, you would want to do some sort of reinforcement. I did the "angle...

Based on the options you have given, and the reviews I have read, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a pretty solid vehicle (and off road capability would be incredible). My next choice would be the VW.

But if you upgraded to a "proper" brake master cylinder, then the stock brakes would then benefit if that is the case. My argument on the matter is that upgrading to 4-pots alone is not worth it,...

I need to start using a tripod more often for my pics. Hand held with a fixed 50mm non-stabilized lens just doesn't get the same sharpness as you get in your pics.

Sounds like a decent deal for sure. You can't even get a used 04-08 XT with higher miles for that price. Just realize that it does have that many miles, regardless if they're highway or not. So the...

Use the winters for crazy winter conditions.
