Subaru owners: Let's see your expedition rigs!

No pictures of our new Subaru but we got a nice, clean 09 Forester for the wife's daily driver and our weekend adventures.

Wanted to ask if anyone has used an ARB Simpson II style flip open roof top tent on their Subby? I have seen several coffins style Maggnolia tents but no of the other style. Thinking about swapping my CVT Mt Shasta back and forth between the truck and car.

From our last weekender from Yellowknife down to the MacKenzie Highway. Want to explore more here in the future. Drive the winter roads from Wrigley to Colville Lake, above the Arctic Circle.

Jumping on board.. My wife and I bought an 07 Outback 2.5i (100k miles) recently to replace our beloved 98 Honda CR-V. So far it's been pretty exciting.. We racked up nearly 200 miles before deciding to pull the engine out due to a head gasket spewing oil all over the exhaust :Wow1:

There was a quote that goes something like--- the greatest adventures are the ones were nothing goes as planned... :rolleyes: LOL

I am starting a new 2016 Forester XT light-expedition vehicle.


Mods are subtle at this point:
new 235/55R18 Michelin Defender LTX M/S, slightly oversized
Rigid 20" LED lightbar going in
LED fogs
Skid plates will be coming soon

sweet forester, where are you gonna mount the light bar ?
The LED light bar will be mounted on a bracket that comes out of the grill and places the light immediately above the front license plate. I will post pics when it is in place.

That's unfortunate. I keep looking at getting a Subaru but then I keep hearing stories like these. There's the class action lawsuit against the newer ones too.
