2009 Subaru Forester FXT - Lifted, Locker, Overland Drawers


New member

Asking: $13,500
Location: Seattle, WA

** PLEASE NOTE ** -- Bike rack is not included-- More photos will be up after professional detail
-- Stock wheels included (one of them is mounted on the roof with the full-sized spare)
-- The Overland Drawer System is easily removable and included in the sale. If you decide you don't want it, I would be happy to remove it for you and replace the factory trunk floor (also included anyway).

This Forester is equipped with an auto locker in the rear differential specifically designed for Subarus. It engages and disengages automatically, meaning there is no on/off switch. While unlocked and going around corners the system audibly ratchets- this is to be expected and means that it is working properly. More info can easily be found on the web/YouTube. Search for "Torq Masters Industries Subaru Locker"

I have built out this Forester XT specifically for overlanding, camping, and daily driving. Since this has been my only vehicle for the past couple of years, all modifications were done using brand name parts and proven systems. All maintenance has been done on time and use OEM or better replacement parts.

Sorry, I can’t believe I forgot to include that. It’s still my daily driver until the end of this week, so it may change a little.


Cool rig! Did you end up going for a tacoma for more room or off-road capability? Just curious. Good luck with the sale!

In the end, I needed something with a bed and a little more room. The Forester was a perfect rig for the weekdays and 3-4 day trips, but you know how things can escalate.
