Our 2017 Subaru Outback Adventure Build /// This MomSter Wagon transforms from Soccer Mom during the week to Adventure Mobile on the weekends. Dailed in with all the latest and greatest to keep dad happy and mom looking rad (lol).

Subaru Outback Adventure Build

Subaru is well known for their safety, reliability and holding their value so the jump to own one was easy to justify. However, in a sea of soccer mom subies we needed ours to stand apart, do more and carry a bit of off-road swagger with it. Taking some inspiration from my Toyota Tacoma Build was easy but Crystal made it clear she didn’t want me to get carried away on this one…

  1. Great build man! Whats the rtt model youve got going on there?

  2. Love the Subi, I’m considering doing a very similar build. With the lift, bigger tires and rtt what is your city and hwy mileage? Thanks 🍻

    1. It displays an average around 18 when I drive it and slightly higher when my wife drives it lol

  3. I love this build! what roof rack are you using to support the CVT Mt. St. Helens rtt? this set up is perfect for my family. Thank you for sharing

    1. This is actually the Thule system that came with the Outback Touring edition. Works great!

  4. How does the 2 inch lift affect the ride quality? Same question for the tires. I love the ride feel of the OB but want the lift and thicker tires.

    Also any plans to change the shocks to something made for offroading? Thanks!

    1. No change in ride quality that I can really notice. There is a little more noise from the tires but that is to be expected. I have looked into some strut options to upgrade those but haven’t found much info on quality options yet. It is on the short list though.

  5. Looks great. How are those wheels holding up? First I’ve seen anyone running them.

    1. They are so solid! We don’t thrash this car by any means we don’t baby it either while out on the dirt roads. The coating is strong also because my wife doesn’t have the best depth perception and has slid the wheel across a few things and no paint chips or even scratches that didn’t eventually disappear.

  6. Awesome, thanks. If you don’t mind, one more question but about the tires this time. I’m hesitant to pull the trigger on the BFGs because most of my driving is around town. Does like, everything still run smoothly? They seem really heavy. I just want to make sure I’m not messing up the car for what I do most, you know?
