Not everyone that buys a Subaru is going to get extreme with their all-wheel-drive vehicle, but there are many who want even more adventure. When you want to go off-roading you’ll need a lift kit and other adventure accessories for your new Subaru Forester, Crosstrek or Outback. Even though a stock 2019 Subaru Forester may look civilized, underneath it’s all about escaping the mundane. But it’s easy to retrofit the small SUV for even more extreme adventures.
The fifth-generation Forester comes standard with it’s highly-capable Symmetrical AWD that will take you just about anywhere. But to get completely away from civilization, you’ll need a lift kit and skid plates for protection underneath so you can get through scrub brush, a river or a rocky trail without damaging your suspension.
Lifting a new Subaru Forester increases its ride height beyond the standard 8.7-inches, increases overall clearance, and will give it much more off-road capability. A two-inch lift kit may not seem like a lot, but combined with larger wheels and tires, it can mean all the difference on getting caught up on a rock or gliding over it. Here’s a list of the best lift kits and off-road adventure accessories for your Subaru.
