Read the story behind the first-ever Lifted Subaru Ascent modified for off-roading. Here you will find the list of mods and upgrades turning a large SUV into a perfect vehicle for rock-crawling and exploration. See photos, specs, lift, off-road tires, and more.
This is something I would consider in say 5+ years (larger lift and custom front bumper/winch). However, the lift indicates that he has a 4" spacer lift from ADF. Obviously that is not listed on their website. Also, they did not recommend to go over their 1.5" lift so how did this dude get them to make it?
One thing I wish the Ascent had was bigger wheel wells. Our OEM tire size of 29.6" is embarrassingly small. Even my 30.55" don't look big enough. From that website it looks like he's running 32.6" 265/75r17; that's about right for serious offroading
