    I'm looking at a new 2017 base model Outback to replace my 1991 4x4 Toyota Pickup. I came across your post in the huge photos thread that showed you touring around the Southwest on lonely gravel roads, which are the types of roads I tend to take throughout the American West.

    1. What year/model Outback did you get? Any modifications to it (lift kit..)?

    2. What tires and size are you using? I've read horror stories about stock Bridgestone's for offroad use. But after reading many threads about tires, I'm still confused about good off-road tires to use (but which still work well on highway).

    3. Did you install skid plates on the Outback, or any other accessories to help for offroad use?

    4. How does X-Mode work? Is it sort of a substitute for the low range on a 4x4 in certain circumstances? I never went too crazy with my pickup truck, but I always knew I could get out of a jam if I fell into one due to the superb low-range gearing on my truck.
