The basics:
I inherited a Woodland Green, 2005 Forester X from my late grandmother. Once it was legally mine I jumped right into the mods.
You can follow my build on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/darkgreenfozzy/
Mods I have done so far:
  • Added a CB radio: a Uniden Pro 520XL
  • Made semi-successful efforts to reduce the wind noise issue.
  • Painted the fading silver rims matte black
  • Painted the tow hooks bright red
  • Replaced the front struts and mounts with KYB Excel G struts (reused the springs)
  • Installed a Primitive Offroad front skidplate
Mods I have lined up (waiting on parts):
  • Replace rear struts with KYB Excel G
  • Install Anderson Design & Fabrication 1" spacer lift
Mods I plan to do in the future:
  • Replace rear bushings (I'm not sure exactly what they are called, but they are part of the rear suspension, near the diff)
  • Better tires for off road driving. Looking at Yokohama Geolandar A/Ts
  • Install ADF MOLLE Storage rack
