Subaru makes a factory accessory for a steel skid plate for the engine and diff;

Engine under guard (steel) E515EAL000 (Serbia)
Differential under guard (steel) E515EAL200 (Serbia)

In South Africa they show an engine under guard of aluminum.

I think that the Primitive plates provide better coverage and also have a transmission plate as another option.

There are a bunch of other neat options like tire repair kits with a portable air compressor, illuminated door sills in a variety of logos.

You would now need to figure out how to buy those accessories and import them in to the US. Subaru USA must of had a shopping list of accessories they could offer in the American market and scratched off a bunch of things.

I saw the best prices on Subaru’s EU website. I don’t know how shipping would work though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I like it because it’s OEM and the plates I’ve found aren’t that expensive.
Do you have links to the other items you mentioned?

I went to the Subaru web sites for those countries and looked at the accessories. Google translate helped me in navigating around the pages.

I had looked at South Africa, Australia, Brazil, Slovenia and Sweden. In my mind it was a rough cross-section of the markets and what they might consider to be important.

The Australian model has rear-front view cameras in the lower corners of the outside mirrors. That was pretty neat, they had a few pictures on how it is useful for backing in to parking spots.

It's a stormy evening and I was watching lots of youtube tonight, even some of Bruceyyyy's stuff.

What got me started on it was thinking about the 3.6 and E85 fuel. That led me to the Brazilian web site as most of their fuel is E85.

Found the steel skid plate on a global site from searching the part number:

Subaru Global | Cover!

Wonder if it's something a dealership would be able to get a hold of. Nothing on Amazon or eBay.
