I think I'm done modding. Got my hella lights, skidplates, mudflaps, floor mats, and hitch.
I swapped the factory rims and tires back on for the summer and was surprised to see my daily commute mileage jump from 27ish to 30ish! When we switch to summer gas there may be another increase as well.

'13 Crosstrek that replaced my '14 xterra for soft road excursions.
Put on some 27inch grabbers for the summer. A couple of vision x laser beams for light and a new muffler so it sounds like a Subaru.
Still am in need of a truck to do truck stuff but this thing is lots of fun! Handled the winter on Nokians great

There is a spot behind a perforated place of insulation right next to the wiring harness. Evidently there used to be something there. If you drill right through that exits near the gas pedal behind a flappy piece of foam. I out a boot in mine but haven't run any wires yet.

thanks for that info...
I did check, but do not have this rubber piece on that location.
All steel, unfortunately.......

It would be a grat place to drill a hole and place a rubber grommet in there tho'........

:beer::beer::beer:

EDIT: looks like you have a aftermarket wiring harness grommet

Ive been pestering subaru owners for thier experiance with towing. Today I got some experience of my own. A home project required a yard of dirt which weighs about a 2000lbs per Google, the trailer weighs a bit over 600. I was under the false impression all uhaul trailers were equipped with hydraulic surge brakes. Next time I'll make sure to get the slightly bigger trailer that comes with brakes. I was over a 1000lbs over the rated (braked)tow capacity of 1500# and it felt mostly fine, just had to pay attention.

I think one of those 13' scamp campers would tow good behind the Forester.

The trailer only lowered the rear of the Forester about 1/2"-3/4"
