  3. What did you do to your subie today?

    General Forum
    Not sure, TBD. Brand name quality lights are big bucks. Want to run LED lights for the lower power draw but you can easily send $300 -$500 on a set of two and I want to run four. Leaning toward 6 inch round style.

    The door panel must have been removed because the technician forgot to reconnect the wire to the mirror. When starting the vehicle to leave. the instrument cluster showed the info icon with the BSD not active. Also the power mirror would not adjust. Went back into the shop and remedied the issue...
  9. ('19+) BFG KO2 255/55R18 on Stock Sport Wheel ???

    Wheels and Tires
    Only the add weight of the tires made a noticeable difference. Requires a heavier foot on the gas to make it go. All of the other items combined add up to nothing more than the weight of an additional passenger. Even the wind drag from the tent had little to no impact on driving and mpg. I...

    Stones in the lower door trim. Could actually see them via the drain holes located in the bottom of the plastic door trim. My local Subaru dealer removed them at no charge.

    Received my SSD light bar today. Overall quality is good, rugged material. Welds are solid, but not the most beautiful. Black finish is fair to good, could be better. Came with mounting hardware and license plate bracket. Approximate weight is 10 pounds total. Price was $200 + $30 shipping. I...

    Thank You Stock Falken tires are about 26 pounds each. The BFG K02 tires are about 45 pounds each. Added about 20 pound to each wheel. Lift kit parts ( mainly the Top-Hat spacers) add about 30 pounds. The tent is 116 pounds.

    Started making a machined aluminium oil drain cover plate to replace the OEM plastic part. Cover plate will mount with 5mm cap screws replacing the plastic push rivets. Machined an O-ring groove on backside of cover for a better contact surface against the Subaru aluminium engine under guard...

    Just noticed 2019 Sport has something rattling inside passenger door. Recently returned from a road trip that included driving on gravel and dirt logging roads. Will report back after determining what is making the noise.
  16. ('19+) 2019 - Auxiliary Lighting - How Many Watts Maximum Draw can be Accommodated?

    Lighting and Electrical
    Just ordered a SSD light bar for my 2019 Sport. I want to run four round lights on the bar however I have concerns on the total amount of wattage that will be drawn from the electrical system. Other posts have shown that the battery is not the most robust, dying out in short time from leaving...

    Lighting and Electrical
    Check out the YouTube video link for an install of a SSD light bar on a Crosstrek. The manner in which the bar connects to the Crosstrek is different from the way it connects to a 2019 Forester (different part altogether), however the hole drilling that is required is similar in nature. I will...
