Hey all,
I posted the other for performance mods but have decided to do some off-road mods.

What off-road mods can I do?

I've seen online that you can put a switch for a centre diff lock but didn't know if you can do to a manual Forester?

Any help would be great and to also see some of your off-roading beasts :)

old post - but, no, cannot do the switch mod with a MT as it's AT only.

Offroad mods are many; how deep are your pockets? Lift kits; custom struts; front LSD; snorkel; diff and gearbox breathers; front and rear bars + carriers; sump guard; .....

Sorry, I only just saw this.

Typical offroad mods are:
2" lift
all terrain tyres
sump guard
camera to catch the action ;)

There's a heap of other things you can do but this is a good starting point. I can help with the lift kit, & advice on the rest.

kevin is right, the centre diff lock mod is only for autos, can do a DCCD swap on a manual to have a locking centre diff but it's expensive & not needed unless you do a full offroad gearbox setup with all the extras.

Mine is a 97 SF Foz, you wanted to see some pics, here's a couple of SGs like yours

Mine on the Subaru Extreme 8 Deserts Challenge last year:
