No timing belt to worry about on the 6, but no manual tranny available. I have driven my four-banger with five adults and full truck up hills. Not fast, but it does fine. I am sure the six would zip...tomcecc said:6 cylinder -vs- the 4.
I'm up in Boone all the time visiting friends. I actually plan to go get my Masters at ASU once I'm done at Catawba. Know of any good trails nearby? Maybe we could meet up and hit a few of them.Aren't the trails in Uwharrie rock-crawling trails? That would definitely be, intense! If not, I would like to check out that area. I have never really been east except to my parent's new place in Rockingham county. I am also in school, but don't have a 'real' job, so I never know when I work.
Yeah, no mods as of yet except for a Rally Innovations Light bar, which unfortunately severely affects my approach angles. I've already ripped it off once. As well as a magnaflow oval muffler, only because the old muffler 'whistled.' I plan to lift it this summer on King Springs and get General Grabber AT2's.Ya there are some places. Some I haven't gone to for the simple fact of needing a second vehicle "just in case." Not all places need mods, just need to know how to pick a line.
I currently go to ASU, getting my bachelor's, as an "older" student... It is an ok school in a fantatsic area if you like outdoor recreational pursuits.
It be great to go riding. Shoot me a PM next time you come up!
I am not worried about them for snow, I plan on having them as an extra set to swap on when I want to go play. I work at Higgins Automotive (don't know if you've heard of it, we have a few customers in Boone) and we have a set of studded snow tires just sitting there I'm thinking of picking up. I've heard 15" wheels will fit 2000 and 2001 but that they changed the caliper in 2002. Just haven't test fitted it.Dude, I cannot recommend the grabbers. i have them now. Great in dirt, gravel, etc, but horrible in snow. Maybe not horrible, but just like all seasons.
I know about ripping stuff off the front! I am on bumper #2, and I have just cut the bottom off. Plus side is that I know the limits of a stock outback on all seasons!
I am 29 and a junior, but my major is full of older students. Retired mil, ex-shop owners, outward bounders looking to advance, etc.
