General Information

Outback Limited
Dark green over silver
Bought in Sydney NSW in 2014 with no history sight unseen by myself. Stock as can ever be, reall nice straight car. 158,000kms. Had a friend look at it, make the purchase and thrash it to see if anything broke before i flew over from WA (to make sure it was reliable enough for the 4200km (2100mi?) drive back home). 2000km of his front diff later, had a new DR5MT fitted under warranty and i had a new HD clutch go in while the box was out. Sweet!
Ripped out the useless fog lamps and replaced them with spotlights for the drive. Made it home no issues at all.

Since then, its been a slow build from parts sourced from anywhere and everywhere for offroad, camping, scavenging and for touring Australia. It now sits nearly kind of maybe a completed project if there is ever such a thing!

Wheel and Tire
215/70r16 Maxxis highway terrain tyres. My chosen tyre, havebeen the best performing tyre ive had and have taken insane amounts of abuse. I have had a decent amount of flats due to the places i drive sometimes. Highway terrain allows for gradual wheel slip and stops sudden grab. Saves the CV's from damage.

I run factory alloys or BBS 16x6.5" which i beleive may have come on an import SF Forester STi.
