    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    Thanks @JakeH for starting this thread!!! The GX is an AMAZING vehicle! Very, VERY capable off road in stock configuration (I have '07 Sport)!! I've got the up-size from stock tire 70 series rather than stock 65s, and this rig is AMAZING!! And also quite comfortable, quiet, powerful, spacious...

    AWilson013's GX 470

    Love this build (long-time-no-login here for me)! So you have the RCI aluminum skid for GX 470 with KDSS? Rad! It looks different than the image on their website. Does yours cover the first 2 cross members as this one advertises? I like the angle of approach in your skid better than as...

    Subaru owners: Let's see your expedition rigs!

    I was just about to propose the same. ;) He started simple on it but then went big and sold it! I see you're in SW UT, so there are known three Aussie DR SF transmission in UT, you, myself and a bother buddy here in Moab with one to go in his 97 outback. ;) @PGGRS, how long have you had...

    Sweet 08 XT awesomeness!!! My favorite OB is the 08-09, either an XT or an H-6 limited Quick tip on the lift. Save the spacers and mayyr 06 Baja springs to those 04 shocks and struts. The baja springs will give you lift and stiffening ride improvement for daily AND load bearing. Ooh and nice...

    And while you're down there, hunt for a dual range gear box to swap into it. It'd be a straight swap and doable in sito, but bring it back Stateside and change the low gearing to the GL low (1.59:1). Dual range 5MT awesomeness IS doable in the US!

    steep hills and slow "crawling" are certainly the clutch-death of [USDM] stick-shift Subarus. HOWEVER, there IS a solution, as alluded to by machine1! In the 90s when Subaru went to full time AWD, they dropped the dual range gearbox in US offerings, BUT they can be attained and they're a...

    Tribeccas are FAT and a direct swap into WRXs etc. i think the RSB bolts to teh outside of the link though and people swap the front too, but only with disconnects would you want either of these on the Fozzy.

    Forester: ExPo Subaru Project

    i think STi and possibly WRX steering racks have different spline counts to the steering linkage. details to consider before thust ripping one at a yard and buying it to discover other problems when under the fozzy. My factory rack got a dead spot around center and it turned out to have slop...

    RSB from a gen 1 outback (UBER plentiful) should be a straight swap and is 18mm. I swapped on into my legacy then swapped it's factory 15MM bar into my wife's 02 outback sport ( the impreza outback), which shares the forester platform. As such I'd be confident a gen 1 OB RSB will swap into your...
