Anyone near Bellingham WA?

Reason I ask is i got a reply from SJR Lifts about doing his own kit for the 05-09 series.

He said he'd do one if he can get access to a vehicle.

Home sjrwa@yahoo dot com to contact him directly

I have no current interest in lifting my Outback, possibly lowering and inch. But, I have looked at their stuff a good bit. But...there are no kits available for $150. You are dreaming there. They have spacer kits (up to 2")for up to Gen-2, and older for $300. True lifts for like $800.

Primative and Subtle Solutions already have spacers available for about the same.

Not saying we shouldn't provide a template. A 4" or 8" lift on a Gen-3 might ???? be viable. AVO TurboWorld has a DBW throttle "black box" that has off-road settings, allowing for more response down low. Maybe that will help. Otherwise, you're never going turn those big meats without a low-range. If no big tires, probably no big lift.

traildog - I just re-looked - now I'm not sure where I saw that $150 price - my mistake. And spacer kit is more of what I meant vs a lift kit. 4" is the most I would go for myself - not trying to out climb any cjs in my OB.

Not many members up here but a few do have Gen3's. Not sure any of them want to raise the OB. I will bump this post for good luck though.


Common sense, isn't common.
