Blown away by the attention to detail and build quality leadfootoffroad has delivered to my Foz. (Yes I know I need new mufflers) Proud to be the first SH in the US with this kind of steel rear off-road bumper build. @leadfootoffroad does plan to convert this build to be easily adapted to future Subaru Forester builds. Contact them for build out quotes and general questions regarding this build. I will try my best to answer all your questions regarding this build. This is 3/16" steel and added only about 150lbs of total weight to the rear. Up will be the front bumper..

That is really cool. How does it ride, and how did you compensate for the sag?
Its only 150 lbs and that includes the tire. It rides great only pushed suspension down 1/8". I recently installed an all new stiffer suspension system to take on the heavier loads I will be carrying as well as my new front bumper build that I am currently doing. Here are a few pics of the front bumper build. You are looking at the winch mount its reinforced with 1/4" steel plates where is attaches and the the winch is sitting on a 1/4" steel plate. The winch shown in the pic is just for mock up purposes mine will be similar just synthetic. The front bumper will sit over the winch mount when completed.

Awesome functional stuff @FozRoamer! Looks amazing too! I didn't know you were here as well cause I was just looking at and sharing pics of your car on the portal. That rear bumper is exactly what I want for my lifted Outback.

Expedition Portal. I'll clarify that I didn't post pictures of your car anywhere. I saved them and was showing people. Absolutely love it.
