I was having a slight issue with the rear sway bar. It would flip when the rear end was lifted. Talked to the guys at ADF and they fabbed up some spacers for the rear sway, amazing customer service!



Old boring stock stuff


New improved stuff


Super easy install. I didnt need a lift, or jacks. Took me about 20 mins laying on my back under the rear of the car. Car drives totally normal, cant feel any difference, now I need to test it off-road!

Heading up to the cabin this weekend. Gunna try to play in some snow.

So figured Id get the next bit of wiring done for the next big project now, so I dont have to get under the car with a bunch of dirt under there.

Basically removed everything I just installed and then some lol.




When we installed the primitive skids, I think I remember the instructions saying you could cut away some of the OEM plastic one to attach to the Primitive one. I pulled the OEM out to compare the two:


You could trim some off to get more "coverage" to protect from mud and such. I might do that in the future, but I didnt feel motivated enough to do it yesterday.

So the wire is ran and hooked up to the S-tech. Might do some more work on things today after work.

oh yea no doubt, on hard impact. But I was thinking about using the edges or up the sides. Just to close the gaps up a bit more where the Primitive "falls short". Try to keep the engine bay cleaner... try anyways lol.

Sure glad I decided to work on the car last week... I did have some fun out on a couple trails near our cabin. Made it out to a designated shooting area on BLM land. Ive actually never been out to it in the winter. The trail started as mostly mud, then slowly turned into mud with a snow cap lol.






The last 150-200 yards were pretty deep, at least 8 inches in most spots. I could feel the skid plates make contact on some of the snow/ice in the center of the tracks. If I was in the STi, I would have had to turn around once I hit the start of that. Crosstrek took it like a champ.

Made it back to the cabin without trouble


After the long weekend at the cabin, we headed back down the hill to my parents house. They watched the dogs for us. They were worn out by the end of the weekend.


On the way home, Jax was sitting in his bed resting his head out the rear window almost falling asleep.
