Sorry, Does NOT work on mobile phone.
This is Adam’s second L series Subaru and most modified one so far, this one has a 6 inch body lift with 27inch tyres and does pretty much what all the other vehicles can do.
4WD on any terrain with the right driver behind the wheel, this is not a point and shoot 4WD. It’s a think ahead and pick the right line which is the type of 4 Wheeling most of us like to do if we want a thrill.
One thing that impressed me the most was the amount of space Adam found in the wagon and made every inch usable, I’ll let the video do the rest of the talking, enjoy.
