Run Around Sue
Hi there. I just joined, and posted this elsewhere when I shoulda posted it here. Rookie mistake, sorry. Oh well, here it is again.
Just bought my first Subaru, a deep blue pearl 2018 Subaru Outback 3.6R Touring, and I just joined this forum. I'm looking forward to picking brains, reading others' adventures, and sharing. In the spirit of sharing, a little about Run Around Sue, I was gonna call her Hannah, as Hannah is spelled the same forwards or backwards, and I was sure this Outback was going to be able to get me there (wherever there might be) and then back again, but I digress. The 0% for 63 months was hard to resist, and, uh, well, I went a little crazy by getting the touring trim level (love the java leather) with the bigger engine (needed to schlep me, my friends and our gear up whatever), which already had some factory installed options (i.e., remote start, all weather floor mats, wheel arches, interior LED lighting). I then wanted some off-road equipment the parts department tracked down and installed. Here is the list of upgrades, and I hope the pic loaded.
LP Aventure 2" LIFT KIT LP Aventure BIG BUMPER GUARD LP Aventure FRONT PLATE FOR BIG BUMPER GUARD LP Aventure SKID PLATE secured with Rally Washers RALLY ARMOR MUD FLAPS RA-MF36-UR-BLK/GRY Thule Crossbar Set Thule Heavy-Duty Roof Cargo Basket Thule Bike Carrier - Hitch Mounted Method Race Wheels 502 Rally | Titanium 245/65R17 Terra Grappler G2 All-Terrain Light Truck Radial Tires CURT CLASS 2 TRAILER HITCH CURT CUSTOM WIRING CONNECTOR #56040 CURT 45785 Receiver Tube Adapter Primitive Racing Rear Diff Skid Plate (dealer threw this in) Severe Weather Kit (dealer threw this in) First Aid Kid (dealer threw this in) Sun Shade (dealer threw this in) Ceramic window tinting on all windows including windshield (driver's and passenger's windows tinted to match color of rear windows)
And here are some items I'm still considering LP Aventure FULL ARMOR OPTION to go on the big bumper guard (gotta do it) CUSCO REAR TOW HOOK (no brainer) LED LIGHTs and LIGHT BAR (probably a good idea) LP Aventure CANISTER FILTER BYPASS (I might ford a river, and it's only $40) WilcoOff Road HITCHGATE™️ SOLO Standard Hi-Clearance (Not sure yet. I like my back up camera and sensors. But the full size spare is taking up precious space inside or up top.) Awning (probably yes)
I’m interested in what others have to say about the Wilco Hitchgate Solo.
Let the adventures begin.
Thank you, Darrin
