As for control, high-center of gravity BoF vehicles need low range a lot more than a Subaru does.

I may have moved on because of where I live and where I go, but most folks on the 4Runner forum need nothing more than a stock Subaru with better tires (yet spend thousands on great but unreliable high-dollar race suspensions that only a few people actually put to intended use and thousands more on mostly worthless bumpers that weigh down the vehicle everywhere).
I used to have a wrangler rubicon and the guys I wheeled with had a great term for those type of owners, mall-crawlers.

Great looking setup. What’s next on the list?

That looks awesome! Love the wheels and tires. How did you mount the switch for the light bar?

I really like the wheels even though I bet they are a pain to clean. After being a professional detailer I've come to like simple wheel designs lol.
