Hey all! I'm excited to be here. I've lurked for a bit, and now I'm qualified to join.
I've owned/rebuilt/built up a bunch of Jeeps ('89 YJ, '93 YJ, '93 XJ, '95 XJ, '95 ZJ) and as of two days ago, the wife had a '08 KK. I also had/have a '93 Miata (in my father's garage, his current rebuild project). And I've always wanted a Subaru, it just fits in with my ideals.
The wife wanted to trade the Liberty for a Jeep Renegade - I wasn't enthused about the Renegade, so I proposed looking at the Forester. It checks most of the boxes for both of us - so after some debate about features and budget, and a fair bit of internet search and research, we decided upon a '17 XT Premium. Various interior bells and whistles for her, turbo and AWD for me, and plenty of room for both of us.
Little does she know the plans I have...

On a related note, anyone need any mid '90s Jeep parts?

Welcome to the club!
I went from a Wrangler AEV Unlimited Rubicon to my 2019 Forester...it was my 4th Jeep. I kinda wish I had the turbo motor because I like to mess with things and think an XT would be a blast. The interior and ride quality on the '19 is quite nice though...almost enough to make up for the missing ponies.
