    Cbetts' 2020 subaru Crosstrek Premium 6MT Build

    Now that my Subaru looks off road worthy, I feel inclined to post my build . . . .

    I first came home with it brand new in June 2020. It met my initial requirements:
    • Four wheel drive (well, this is all wheel but I can fix that later)
    • Manual Transmission
    • Had to fit in my garage




    My first alteration was to liven-up the exhaust a bit. I put in a Nameless axle-back kit with a 5-inch muffler.


    Next was a short-stroke shifter kit along with a Hurst Tee grip.




    There wasn't much chrome on the car, but it was enough to bother me. I replaced the Subaru logos and PlastiDipped the rest.

    Next, time to cut the car! I picked up a set of RRW bumpers on sale.












    I had to finish removing the reservoirs in front of both front wheels. I put in a new bag style reservoir for the windshield washer deleted the intake resonator.

    The stock tires are so small now! I had to fix that. I ordered Black Rhino "Unit" wheels (15 x 7 5x100 +15) with BFG KO2 tires (235/75r15). Now it looks like a proper vehicle!

    The bag style reservoir What’s old is new again. I remember the old bag one you would hang on front of grill to try to cool the water in the bag.

    Craig, I have never seen another Subaru done up as your is. You may be a trend setter in the Subaru world.

    Thanks for the kind words! There is actually a significant off road Subaru community in SoCal.

    It looks like the tires and wheels made it; completed the "look". I like it!

    I got tired of the tires rubbing when making turns so I removed the little flaps in the fenders.






    I found a Pelican case that fits neatly next to my spare, I guess I found my tool box!
