Hiya. Name is Grant, and im from south carolina, lived overseas for 10 years for USAF and Work, now im here in CT. 

Got my third subaru for my new car as i needed a pretty much dedicated offroader/overland/road trip car and it fit the bill. Used to be a jeep guy (jk w 2.5 inch lift, 33s, armor etc) and found that it was a bit overkill as im not a rock crawler, or a big mud bogger (but everyone likes to get a little dirty right?) so I swapped to alternatives and have been very happy with it.  Many plans for it that will come in the next few months before camping season gets into full swing.  Currently just have some 245/65-17 AT3 tires and yakima rack with extension.  Still waiting on an Anderson lift kit, king springs, primitive front bar and skid plates as well as a few other things for camping (arb awning and room, water system with pump and heater, etc etc)

looking forward to spreading the gospel in the northeast to get more involved!

3" of lift, all adjustable control arms, 13" of ground clearance.  I used this to explore the dunes and deserts of Saudi Arabia camping almost every weekend for a year.

this one will end up like that.  the new 2015 Subaru has a different strut top orientation.  the spacer lifts have to be made a certain way to adjust camber and castor when you lift it, so the guy has to redo the lift kits for the 2015.  once its done, it will be on the way. its a 2 inch lift with a rear subframe drop to keep wheel position, and ill also do a 1" spring lift

I know Country has been going out a lot. Post in the Wheelin Sunday thread about looking somewhere to go this weekend and Im sure youll get his attention. I have to do ball joints on my YJ before I go anywhere but we could always take the GFs XJ if we get a good turn out

I have a crv also.  the weak AWD system led me to not mess with it lol.

mpg says like 20? Dont really care though.  I bought this car for overlanding purposes pretty much.  MPG is the last thing i worry about
