Here, California has similar rules. However, from all I have read, Subarus on snow tires are only asked if they carry chains. If it becomes as bad as to require a Subaru on chains, they just close...

Yes, it will, that is why I said "offroad traction control" which Subaru VDC is not. The x-mode enhanced version might be, never driven that. As for a little wheel spin, that is a good thing even in...

I replaced the differential gear oil on the OB every 30,000 miles/48,000km.

On the Tribeca, I replaced it at 120,000 miles (bought at 108,000) and will probably never replace it again.

Yes, talk to him/NachaLuva/SubieLiftOZ.

The one thing to remember is that your angles will only improve from abysmal to poor. So, if angles are an issue where you go, the lift alone won't do.

Test line 1
Test line 2 no extra space on my end




Test line 3 double-spaced on my end


EDIT: yes, it did it again. If I double-space, it makes it triple spaced.

Why are posts double/triple spaced?

Kevin,


Any idea why posts are double/triple spaces? I have to edit every single post to eliminate bizarre spacing that was not there in my draft.

That sounds like a good analysis, Rally. I guess it would be a great platform for a dedicated rig but not good for a daily driver.

Well, that's great news.

I wonder what Toyota will do here: their full size trucks as well as the 4Runner and the GX Lexus are all due for replacement.

I don't know. The 2017 seems to try too hard to look like something it is not, half-sporty, half-cute. The 2018 is an unapologetic box that stresses ruggedness which I think fits better. Do I like...

Bottom line is, I buy tires every other year. :) And then there is the odd year when the Tribeca needs tires as well; 2020 looks like that kind of year.

Just don't lift it...should be pretty easy to roll it over end over end when climbing anything really steep.
