  1. How is your CVT doing? Did you do any upgrades to it – like oil cooling etc? I really like Outback and it is "on the list" when the time comes to do some road trips in Japan.
    PS: I cancelled my rage from yesterday. Sorry for that 😉

  2. Great video. Is there a way that if your sleeping inside to have the windows down half way and keep the bugs out? Kids like a screen or mesh type thing?

  3. Question on the LP front guard, do you know of any sites or particular forms where one might find a used one? Has it ever come in handy or for mellow overlanding/off roading would the lower frame only with skid plates be sufficient?

  4. Question – BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 Off-Road Tire – 265/70R17 121Q work for Subaru Outback?
    Or 245/60R18 ?

  5. I’m getting a 2” lift on my Subaru Outback and I was wonder if you had to do anything special to get the ko2 245/65/17 on your rig?

  6. Always glad to support a local. I'm also interested in the Outback as a commuter and small camping trips as well being that my main ride drinks gas like a fish drinks water lol. I've also taken a bunch of photos at the same spot that you showed your Rubicon.

  7. Bought a 4runner for overloading. Pretty sure this vehicle would take me every where i would need to go. Nice build

  8. Really nice build but seems overkill for what the vehicle can really do. I mean, it's a great awd but it's not a 4×4, no locker, independent suspension… There is a lot about the style in this lift and "adventure" hype. I come from the Jeep world and had a JKUR that I sold, then I bought an Outback 3.6R since I now do more long run expeditions with occasional gravel and dirt roads. I don't think all that accessories is a good thing on a vehicle so limited. Respect anyways for the quality of the work and all the money put on this project. Even if it is useless to me, it sure looks cool and if you like it, it's great. Regards.

  9. Great video and write up on ExPo. I'm seriously considering an Outback for our next family camping/backcountry travel car (to replace my aging 4 dr Taco). I'd been planning up moving into a 4runner, but the costs are so high even for used, the Outback seems to hit most of my travel car concerns. But, I'm curious about the off road handling. Does the Outback have a locker or anything like the traction control systems of the 4runner?

  10. Stunning setup.. what is estimated cost to replicate build ? Does the front guard effect the front sensors for collision warning/adaptive cruise control

  11. I don't have a winch on my 2018 JL Wrangler, so in the backcountry, when I go alone.. I bring an 8,000 pound capacity come along, with tow ropes..
