  1. Crosstreks Off Road
    Hi, I'm new to this forum, but I've been around the internet and the trails for a while. I recently got into modding my 2017 CVT Crosstrek, and I was debating whether or not to add a winch. I hemmed and hawwed a bit about chopping off the bumper, the added weight, how to wire it up, and all the...
  2. Utility, Protection, and Towing
    I was thinking about using the OEM tow hook that came with my crosstrek as a recovery point to pull my vehicle on if it ever got stuck. If I use a manual winch do I have to worry about it breaking off? I'd rather not get struck in the face by a metal projectile at lightning speed.
  3. Crosstreks Off Road
    Hi there all, a bit new to the forum. I have a 2013 XV and was wondering if any fellow Marylanders knew of some good spots to go a bit off roading. Living in Frederick county- I’ve got a lot of time on my hands due to everything caused by the virus. Thank you in advance!

    Hey, guys, I'm new to the forum, but I am looking how to fabricate or a place to fab a front bumper for me up in NY. I dig the Jeep Bumper look, especially with a winch and tow hooks and such. I know some people on the facebook page who had it done, but the shop was in Oregon. If no Jeep...

    Hi Everyone. I think the closest place to Boston likely to have trails is NH. Does anyone know of any trails you can legally drive off road in Southern NH?

  10. Crosstreks Off Road
    Hello fellow crosstrek owners! I'm seeking any opportunity/place for a bit of offroad driving in winter. Unfortunately, they clean the roads/parking lots pretty quickly after snowfalls, as my first winter here has shown :) I'm only aware of Pine Barrens, but it is unclear whether they're open...
  11. General Discussion Forum
    Hey Everyone, Yes, I have a pretty aggressive looking XV, but I could finish the upgrades faster if I had some help paying for them. I am curious. Is there anyone that is willing to help a stranger out? In reciprocation: For Businesses: I will apply decals for your business on my rear...

    displaying some of the XV's stock capabilities. The reviewer says it's "unfair" to pit it against a Land Rover but it performs quite well. Much better, as he points out, than any of the XV's competition.
