Finally got my OB, looking for people around the El Paso area to venture out with, see what my OB can do, talk about set ups, and all around good advice!
What about recommended tires or lift kits?I am not in your area, I live In NY. However first I would recommend getting all the skid plates, Engine, Diff, transmission, mid sections, and etc as much as you can. Secondily, I would recommend having Torq locker installed in your rear diff. Link Below. This may not work with you exact model, the link is just to show you what I am talking about. This is like having a locking diff or a wielded diff, but still always both wheels to disconnect from each other when turning. Then the third option is more off-road lights.
I was thinking aftermarket for sure, for the skid plates I was thinking aluminum I could just make my own instead of buying em, good idea?Wow it's a 2021 I was not expecting that. It's still relatively early days in figuring out what best fits the Gen 6 but people are experimenting with the new IronMan 4x4 suspensions for Subarus
I recently got the new Ironman 4X4 2" Lift System for my Gen 5. I was excited to test it out after installing it and so..I did. TESTING SUSPENSION TRAVEL: I built a sketchy ramp from scrap wood I had. It was not a good idea. With the sway bars disconnected on the factory suspension (and a 2"...www.subaruoutback.org
I'm beginning to research lift options for my 2017 Subaru Outback Limited and was wondering if anyone has any experience or input on the Ironman 2" suspension kit.www.subaruoutback.org
For tires - are you going to get aftermarket wheels or stay stock? If your stock wheels are 17" then 225/65-17 Falken Wildpeak AT Trails would be good.
Something like 17" Method MR503 would be perfect if you want aftermarket wheels - be careful not to get too heavy aftermarket wheels.
Of-course, I would recommend lift kits and tires. Most people usually start with these. I usually start with the skid plates first. Only because of my off-road experience, driving on paved roads. Yes I said correctly. I was driving down a paved road at 1am driving to a race track, doing 50mph, which is speed limit for the road I was driving on. By the time, my headlights picked up a 6-inch down tree branch, I was driving over it. The road was not lit at all and still not to this day. Since my accident of busted control arms, struts and a dented up Engine Oil pan, I now am worried about driving on that road at 1am.What about recommended tires or lift kits?
As far as skid plates, mine are aluminum under the engine. It mostly is a sheet of 8awg Aluminum, you are paying for the craftsman to drill the holes in the correct spots and the shipping. If you can order a large sheet of aluminum and thick, than all power to you. If you go that route, I would even recommend covering the entire undercarriage. You may need spots or access panels to drain fuilds.I was thinking aftermarket for sure, for the skid plates I was thinking aluminum I could just make my own instead of buying em, good idea?
