I like it.

Did you get your Foreter lifted? If so, how many inches?

Also, did you have to change out your shocks or struts?

I am thinking about slightly lifting my forester as well.

Thanks

Looking good! I'm running the same bull bar, a lot of people in my area park by feel. :mad:

I like what you did with the fog lights, is that a coating you applied?

I'm suddenly a fan of the silver color. I'd been pretty set on getting one in blue or sage green, but I dunno, you make the silver color look bad ***.

I really like before and after shots but i miss something important:

Could you please list the updates?
Lift?
Tyre size and wheel spec?
Hood wind deflector (where do you get this one)?
Bumper bar.....

Thank you :)

Love the before grey wheels! What did you use to make your handles black? Got any pics of the headlights at night?

It looks awesome. How was the install? Line up, etc.? I've been searching for bull bar/light bar for some time now.

Yes, it is a mix of of 2 lifts. First basic 1.1" from Primitive Racing (with kings springs), plus 1/2" strut spacers which gives around 1.6" total. I'm on the same original struts.

@SGForry

My modz are a long term project, some have change since the first stage.

When I posted those pictures 2 years ago, here a list of the modz :

1.1" Lift Kit from Primitive Racing with the king springs
1/2" strut spacers (give a total of 1.6" lift+tires diameter +1.5" (0.75" more lift) = around 2.25" total lift
Primitive Racing skid plate
2" Black Horses sport bar
OEM Subaru hood deflector
Weathertech Windows deflector
Dual xenon + led daylight from Alibaba light housing with HID conversion kit.
225/65/17 Yokohama G015 AT Tires
17" FastWheels Seven Gunmetal gray

Since, I have crashed my front bar, I removed it...lol, at least it's the bar who took the hit, saving my bumper. I also downgraded a bit my tire size, cause I think they were a bit too big (28.5" diameter), since I don't have a turbo... Stock tire diameter are around 27", I run now 215/70/16 at 28" on 2001 Subaru GC8 16" wheels , less rotationnal mass leave me more acceleration response.
