Lots of updates. More to come tomorrow.

But I got the Raingler net installed. Had to mount a bracket that came with the kit behind the B-pillar trim.



Finished product



The top two corners strap on to the two D-rings. The bottom two, I got a bracket to bolt into the lower seatbelt mounts. Basically unbolted the seatbelt mount, then put a bracket between the original belt mount and the bolt.

All 4 corners tighten down with the strapping. It is actually pretty taunt and I honestly dont think there's any way from the dogs to go through it.

Over the weekend I met up with Blake. We shot another video for the Primitive Racing engine and trans skid plates.



trans


engine


The install was SUPER simple and quick. Primitive included straight forward instructions and there was only a few small pieces of hardware that's new for the kit (everything else was reused OEM).

After the install, we took the toys out to play

Little behind the scenes. 3 wheel motion



Pictures surely dont do it justice, but the rear wheel is probably 12-14 inches in the air. I could easily stack 3 fists together under the gap. Thought about putting my head down under as reference, but after about half a second I figured that's probably not a good idea lol.





Then I switched things up and drove into a bmx jump hahaha

broke the cap off the ramp





No real damage done. I popped the fog light shrouds off, but not big deal.

Shot of the skid plates from under the car

Seems like your approach angle is bad. You should address that.

Also went out and did some exploring with a friend in his Crosstrek.



Another "does not do it justice" picture. This incline was I'd guess damn near 45 degrees.

I seriously would have never guessed that the first time I drove the Crosstrek in the "snow", would have been in Sacramento! lol

This was on my drive home from work today. Took a little over twice as long as normal, per the obvious reasons.
