Hey mate ,
what a awesome rig you have there!!
love the front bumper cut!!!!!!!!!
and DIY skid plate looks sweet
something im yet to do
would you ever install a winch?

I love lots of light, so i think your plans to get some led bars would make your outback look really cool and help alot to see in really dark places,
I just noticed I think you and I have the same led in our boot!!
very bright and very cheap
I Reccomend them to everyone

ohh we do ? thats great. yh i still have second light and thinking where to put it ... maybe on trunk door like when you open door up that light lights up outside area in back and to sides. i think would be cool.
then i wanna better backup light. put stronger bulb in original place or add some extra led bar but not sure where.
winch would be cool. and i saw people kinda fitting one even under bumper. so maybe for future i will.
maybe front and rear cameras as well. or even 4 of them for surround view.
whats your plans for your car into future?

yes it looks the exact same as mine, i installed 2 of them on the inside of the boot door and they shoot light out the rear of the car ,
i will try to find a website better than photo bucket so i can upload photo's
i like your idea of making the reverse light brighter
i would do this also
i have some spare small led bars which should do the trick lol
but i need a dual battery setup before i add anymore
camera's would be a great idea also

For me i would like to trim my front bumper like you , maybe even try to get someone to help custom fab a arb style front bar, with winch mount
i want a skid plate, custom side rails replacing the skirts
and im not sure if i should go 2inch lift or 3 inch lift
but a lift none the less

yh cut bumper is free thats why i did it. and its still legal. i was thinking just add some bar maybe under bumper but more i drove with it and i never even touched it , so i think i dont even need anything there more.
rear bumper i will do next i think. as mine is well long and its really comes in the way everytime. i saw some ideas already to cut it.
really the best way to know what you need change to your car is driving it in different situations on diffeent angles so you will see whats going on and what you could change.
yh you should lift it will look great.

still that power loss slow acceleration laggy performance problem as per this thread: https://offroadsubarus.com/showthread.php?t=7471

i mean even 1997 legacy outback does 0-60mph in 10s and i do double that time ..i have some serious problems with something there. or my fual goes badly, but then i have LPG system so my gas goes badly as well , or my air goes bad, or then my exaust bad. or nothing of those but something else. like computer messing with something. so then bad sensors... again which ones ? O2 or some others.

thought i need add some extra mini led bar for reverse lights... just one problem there , i measured voltage and with just ignition on it was 9v on reverse bulb. who so low ? with engine on, its goes some up but not fully and its not stable 12v still. so when i connected 2 mini led bars from reverse circuit i had them lighting not fully . so must find out whats will voltage drops there



this just with one bar connected. thin then it was good voltage. and its good difference. but its bad place for lights . i should be mush more spread if it would sit just under actual light. still much better then oem lights





here is problem with voltage droping when i turn on AC same time or other lights. its big difference . and its problem.


new interior middle light 9 leds. before was 6 leds and was little bluish , now light is more white/yelowish and much brighter

and end result on reverse lights. removed oem bulbs completely. they wer rusted corroded and i need to change those sockets ifi wanna used oem ones again. but why i need them when i have this much light now on reverse. and if you stand from rear you dont even see them because they no lighting up at all , because i hide them under rear plastic light and they slightly under angle down too so they give most light just to ground and some front.

so end result from this to this






and they very invisible there same time they wont blind anyone. it feels like light just coming from license plate area and it goes down. and with extra bright bulb in reverse light bulb place you would blind people if they stand there and driver if he sits in car behind your car. and with this place where i put it you wont.

nice reverse light upgrade man.

ive been thinking about the same thing, just thinking i should have it wired through a switch to the reverse light so I can drive with normal reverse light in city and switch "extra" reverse lights on in the bush

insane amount of light from those little led's !!
