Oh, also put on an "our we there yet bashplate" - perfect fit, one man job, took less than a beer to remove old plastic one and install new one thanks to David Wilson, quality stuff.

Today I ripped my front and rear bumper off as well as the plastic around my front tire. Was planning to do this eventually so that we could build custom bumpers with better entry angles, and fit better tires under the car, but a few rocks on the trail decided to speed up that process lol. Will be making a video about the trip with the incidents but it won't be up for a while. I'll upload pics if I get the chance.

Ah well it will give you the incentive to do the mods at least!

Our last trips usually dictate our next mods. Welp, it's time for that custom bumper now.

No kidding, wasn't really sure what upgrades were needed past tires and clearance until we put the system to the test. Should be an interesting and informative build

Well not today but yesterday.

Now my Forester is out of warranty i'll be doing the services myself. So yesterday I did.

Oil change
Oil filter change
Air filter change
Upper engine clean
wheel rotation
Fuel additive added.

I did get a "P0172 Powertrain system too rich bank 1" after I did the upper engine clean. But that cleared after I went for a 10 minute drive.
