bheinen74 Nice, I really wish they would have looked at original Subaru colors from the 80's era Subaru BRATS. Grace Beige would ahve been perfect (that is the color of my tan BRAT)
can go to paintscratch dot com and look up a 85 subaru and find the color code for exampls. Each year had own colors back then. would have really been nice to keep it to Subaru like color

Funny, they do look much better on this Outback than they did on the Crosstrek.
Yep, exactly right. (And they're for sale)

The roof rack and winch mounts are impressive in that they don't look like add ons. You've certainly provided some good ideas to work with.
Thanks so much.
Yeah, the craftsmanship was something else with this car. Everything was specifically designed to fit the exact contour of this specific gen car.
Like you said, there's a difference between this and when you buy universal parts.

Nothing needed to make them fit.

I have a 2004 and am planning on installing 215/65r16's on it. What did you do to get them to fit on the Desert Outback?

What are they from? Is it from some late-model OB?
They look like Crosstrek Hybrid wheels to me.

Hey thanks. Yeah, it was a close call and barely fit, but it did.
Either the winch was going to fit behind the bumper or we weren't going to do one at all. I didn't want a big honkin' winch hanging off the front of an Outback. Less is more.
But we did need to fabricate a custom bracket to secure it safely back there so you can actually use it.

This spoiler is from Japan, but the American ones I think are identical.
There's 1 on ebay right now. If you keep an eye out, you can find used ones pop up here and there.
