    I’m getting a 2” lift kit installed as well as some Method blacked out rims and BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2 tires.

    Transformation has begun (pre-lift). Picked some vinyl overlays (smoke and carbon fiber) for the lights and emblems from Subisports.com.

    It suits the car very well... That should be a factory option...

    Looks great.

    Any tire rub issues that you've seen? I kind of want to do this to my Forester

    Nothing substantial. Might have a very small amount in a very tight turning radius.

    The dealership that installed it offers it as an option on new vehicles!

    Looks good.

    Have you figured out if and how much the lift affects fuel economy yet?

    The new issue of TREAD magazine has an article on a modified CrossTrek. I'm thinking of doing some mods to my 2014 Outback. Several years ago I blacked out the rear logo and grill with spray Plasti-Dip, and debadged the back. IMG_3240.jpg
