I would ripp off bumpers first if you drive on such tracks that bumpers is not problem then mayne you dont need lift nor other mods. Skid plate then way to go.

Yeah, we are going to leave the 14 outback alone, maybe when it needs tires just put geolandars on it.

But we want to buy an older outback to lift, cut bumpers, skid plate, all that fun stuff. Stick with me guys. This would be a wife approved project car.

We have tons of gravel roads to explore less than an hour from home, and about 2 hours away there are miles and miles of off road trails in the mountains, varying degrees of difficulty. The one we took the 14 one is one of the easiest trails.

Anyways thanks for the welcome.

I wouldn't put Geolanders on ANY car, even if they were supplied for free!

You must be living in nice area then. Then 2nd gen is way to go. Cheap reliable lifts easy and dont eat cv axless too much with that lift. And i like its interior much more then newer plastic kinda cheap look. Looks more like those 80-90's japan interiours. Just pick what you like cloth or leather, auto or manual, climate control or no. Go for h6 vdc model and you will get all whistles. Dont save on tires go for best ones. Save on lift or skid plates better. I dont like pay for "name " .
