While Subaru designed their Forester Mountain Rescue concept for high altitudes, there’s no question this truck has attitude. Rare is the Subaru with this much ground clearance. The Ski Patrol rides to the rescue with an Air Lift custom driver-adjustable ride height suspension, 9500 pound Warn winch, DeeZee (grill guard and custom side steps) and Bushwacker (custom trail armor, fender flares, tail light guards, rear gate guard and lower door cladding) gear.
The Forester Mountain Rescue rolls on custom reversed “near zero” offset Subaru steel wheels wrapped with Yokohama Geolander MTS 30×9.50s. The way is lit by Subaru Baja Sport activity lights in front and Visi Light LED spotlights up on the roof rack.
In the back of the unit, Specialized Vehicles created the custom diamond plate load floor. Custom interior side paneling and storage compartments and a Dee Zee steel compartment separator are all business.
Under the hood, a 2.5 liter DOHC intercooled turbo Subaru Boxer four-banger delvers 224 horsepower and 226 foot pounds of torque. The power finds its way to the wheels with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a 4.11:1 final drive ratio.
