  1. Suspension and Handling
    Hello All! Recently bought an automatic 2005 Forester XS at the end of last year. It's my daily drive, however I live in the PNW and value off road capabilities so I was looking at doing some modifications to bolster it in that aspect. After reading posts on here I'm considering a 2 inch ADF...
  2. Lighting and Electrical
    I want to get some off-road lights rigged up on my Wilderness, but am having trouble coming up with a good mounting plan. Anyone mounted anything other than ditch lights on their SK? I have been searching in vain for a grille mounting solution, or even a way to mount a light bar in the small...

  5. Offroad Fozzies
    Hey there! Just drove out to Utah this week to pick up a 2015 2.0 XT that's in great shape. I've been without a car ('08 4Runner) since the beginning of August from a hit and run. The previous owner definitely put a lot into this car and I'm looking for some advice on how to get it set up as is...
  6. Forester Shopping
    Hi all, I'm buying (or trying to anyway) a 2022 Forester. I'm choosing between the Premium and Sport trims. My only concern with the Sport, and I might be thinking too hard here, is that it won't be quite as good on bumpy dirt roads and light offroading (e.g. to get to campsites, etc) given...

    Hello I’m a newbie to all of this and have been working on getting my SH forester ready for trails and such.

    Hey, I've had my 2004 fxs for almost a year and I love it. My biggest issues with it comes when I go off road. I'm not someone who goes rock crawling for fun but I do like to go camping, fishing, and shooting in remote areas and sometimes it is a pretty rough drive getting back there. I know...

    Hey everyone! I'm new to the forum, and fairly inexperienced with subies. I have an 03 Forester XS with 143k miles on the original motor. I bought it pretty cheap ($2,500) with the intention of overlanding it. I noticed it's a bit sluggish during acceleration and on an incline. I've done the...

  14. Brakes
    I bought an 98 forester so I was disappointed to find out that it does not have a LSD especially since I do some overlanding/offroading with it. I was debating getting a lsd but I also have read they are not the most effective. And a LSD would only help split torque in the rear. If only I could...
