I took my Forester to a cell tower site the other day. I couldn’t make it all the way to the top for one it’s my personal vehicle not a company and two it’s not a rock crawler. Anyways there was one spot in the road that I had to stack rocks to allow me to get over a big rock. Once I did that the Forester kept on trucking. Starting to really like my Subie. Pictures attached doesn’t really do justice. The hill is super steep and makes a turn.

Pics and videos NEVER do justice to how steep or deep or rocky a road or obstacle is. Every single time I go out, I try to capture the crazy terrain I've driven up and every single time, I end up disappointed with the photos or footage.

But it's quite impressive what these cars will clamber over. AT tires $$ will take it to the next level. Some lift $$ is helpful too, not just for clearance but for approach/departure angles. You'll want to fill your trunk with recovery gear $$. Hmm, and some auxiliary lighting $$ can be helpful. Welcome to subaruforester.org. We'll help you spend all your money. :lol:

I have been looking at lifts lol. How much does the lift bother gas mileage? I drive 2 hours a day to and from work not counting when I drive to job sites. I definitely need to keep the best mpg as possible.

It's hard to get photos that capture the feeling you get looking at them in person, as a photographer when I'm out mountain biking and want to get a pic of a sick line it helps to keep the camera frame parallel to what level ground would be with vertical 90° framed trees in the background, also getting a reference like my bike or your car in the shot gives a good perspective of size and grade of the hill. And a few steps back never hurts ha.

Idk there's my 2 cents, hope it helps😁🤙
