Easiest way to assume the position.
Mine are extra reinforced.
Phone has a mind of its own today.
Does anybody here know if an adapter for the down pipe is needed to run a 3" catback on the SJ? I'm getting conflicting info from the Rally Sport Direct crowd. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Anything that fits on a 15+ WRX will fit the same on the FXT, only thing you may encounter is the bumper may need to be modified to fit tips.
Also, I sold mine, so I'm out of the club... buy my axleback people!
@curly2k3, thanks for the info. This is what I assumed was needed:
probably not a terrible idea so you can use the donut still, needed? probably not, in all reality, but wouldn't hurt either.
So you don't want my cargo tray anymore, lol?
Lmao, he’s on his way!
Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Sorry man
No worries, bro. I forgot as well! Your post about having sold your foz reminded me, lol.
@housemusic1 should snag it from you, definitely value for money there.
I need to figure out what I did with all the carpeted FXT mats I bought, don't believe I left them in the car when I traded it in.
Is it a cargo tray, or mat for the rear cargo area? My Outback came with a rear cargo tray, and it was very handy. My Foz came with the black cargo mat, and 2 sets of floor mats. If only it came with a trailer hitch!
cargo tray, at a very reasonable price. https://mnsubaru.com/threads/fs-2014-sj-forester-oem-cargo-tray.52751/
@curly2k3, that's what came with my Foz. I guess I just assumed that was a "mat". I was thinking a tray would be more like what I had in my Outback.
interesting, don't know that I've ever seen that.
Yeah, that's a serious cargo...thing. More like an organizer.
This is a tray, technically. Probably because it has a lip and can actually hold a bit of spilled whatever. I'd think of a 'mat' as more of a flat piece of carpet or rubber that liquid would just run off the edge.
Who here has aftermarket exhaust on their SJ, and would be willing to take me on a quick ride along?
So I got a question here, so I have a 2018 Forester xt and the rear hatch door sometimes have a hard time opening by itself since it's Auto and sometimes it just refused to auto open and I have to manually open it does this happen to any of you guys too?
Ours got stuck once where it wouldn’t open more than a few inches. We found some steps online to reset it.
Finally got around to eliminating most of the chrome, pretty happy with how it turned out.
Decided to go lower instead of lifting the Forester. Went with Cusco Touring A adjustable struts and Mann engineering springs. Wish the drop was a little more but I'm happy with it. The ride is great everywhere from as soft as stock to tight like an STi. Now I just need better tires.
How’s everyone doing lately? Been awhile since I’ve been on. Reaching 60k miles and now with all this extra free time I can tackle most of the 60k service myself... spark plugs should be fun!
I just threw a P0172 Bank 1 Too Rich code and brought ‘er in to see if I could get some warranty work on it, but unfortunately they said the A/F sensor is not covered, so I picked one up and I’ll need to replace that as well. Although, I don’t really now where the hell it is or how to get to it. Doesn’t seem like I can do it from the top of the engine. I really don’t want to pay $35 for a three day subscription to the technical manual. Couldn’t find any SJ diagrams. Anyone have any tips?
Edit: Plugs and A/F sensor are in. Wasn’t that bad... just took a long time. Ended up having to take the bumper off and remove the passenger side headlight because I couldn’t remove the airbox due clearance issues with my aftermarket headlights. Also had to remove that metal engine plate to access the sensor. Took about 7 hours.
Time to bring this post back from the brink. I finally did a little more towards going full panda, OLM tails and reflector tint from subispeed. The setting sucks but it was too damn hot out to move it out of the garage!
Sorry team… I’m out on the FXT train. Watch the FS section for a few goodies soon…
Bringing this one back up, finally got this paid off so adding a few more aftermarket touches to it, specifically some factory rain guards because Subaru and some diode dynamics SS3 fog lights. The car did not have factory fogs so I chose to piece the kit together myself, I am mostly happy with how it turned out.
I almost traded this in on an Ascent, but decided to keep her after all, still looking much the same, minor change with the license plates after I found out MN had black and white as an option.
