Yeah, he did a lot, for a car, well done with that front bumper re-design and a thoughtful lift. But there is a difference between being on a trail and completing a trail.

Yup. Moab is the world capital of rock crawling-and this is not a typical US overstatement. There is everything there, with the hardest trails being really for buggies. Unfortunately, some of the trails that actually go places are also above a SUbaru's league.

Fins and Things is among the mild difficult trails, known for AA and DA requirements; there are no obstacles. Otherwise, dry slick rock is very friendly for traction. It gets its name from wet conditions.

I have driven 29 trails around Moab itself but there are at least two dozen interesting trails I cannot touch, the extreme 1-2 mile long trails aside, in addition to some that I could do, but am reluctant to take all the beating. There is a ton a Subaru can do there, but it is really Jeep/Toyota territory.

The rest of S. Utah is much more Subaru friendly on the whole, though there are individual trails here and there that are too much.

Moab is awesome, it's my #1 destination if I ever make it to the US. Google "Lion's Back Moab", it's an awesome climb but unfortunately is closed now with the new owners unwilling to accept the string of serious accidents there.

Superu_legacy has done some of the difficult tracks there is his dual range lifted BD Legacy sedan with rock sliders. With damage though, I think you have to accept damage as being part of doing these hardcore tracks

His build thread here:

He is a close friend.

Not really. He only did Lockhart Basin and could not get through without Toyota help. Lockhart Basin is among the milder difficult trails. He will be the first to tell you just how limited a Subaru is out there.

He now has a GX 470, which is a Prado derivative, and is very happy with it. We drove two moderate trails together in spring.

Excluding the toy Subaru in Mickey's hot tub, I am not sure I know of any Subaru other than SL's 95 Legacy, to have certainly and fully completed a difficult trail around Moab.

I am sure your Foz and Rally's and Kevin's can handle quite a few of the difficult trails there though.

If you do come over...I will take you to the best of what Southern Utah has to offer... There is a lot of that!

In Australia from 2012-2014, there was a factory lifted Liberty sedan - the Liberty 2.5X or 3.6X.
They came with a 50mm lift and 225/55R18 tyres instead of the usual 215/50R17 or 225/45R18.
