2003 Baja *5 Speed* *Lifted*

Aren't these awesome vehicles? If you're like me, you caught glimpse of these rare beasts and told yourself, "I've gotta have one". Well here it is!

2003 Subaru Baja with the Majestic Yellow Coloring.

I am the second owner and bought it 3 years ago from a relative. So I know it's been taken care of. Unfortunately the cancerous rusting has begun, which is no surprise to a vehicle of this age. Thankfully you can't see it with the rear door shut, and this is the only place it's happening. I have taken excellent care of this vehicle and am sad to see it go.

Right away at 122K miles we had the timing belt and water pump replaced by the best Subaru mechanic in town. 172,xxx currently. Both sides of the head gaskets look good.

My goal for this vehicle was to get it off the ground a bit as I thought they sagged too much.

I did exactly that. Last summer I had extended King Springs, lift spacers and after market shocks and struts professionally installed by my father who's been an autobody mechanic for 30+ years. So if anything was ever wrong with this vehicle, it was taken care of right away.

Then I tucked some beefy General Grabber AT2 off road tires on steel rims (will include original Subaru aluminum wheels) underneath to give it another inch. It's now sitting a little over 2.5 inches above stock. This was the simplest way with out throwing off the geometry and needing to create custom alignments for it. Believe me, I did my homework when it came to this project.

Subaru made this vehicle for only 4 years and it's really hard to find the yellow with a manual transmission.

I'm asking $7,495obo. I will also be including the Summer tires on the original Subaru aluminum wheels. Give me a call or shoot me a text. Come take it for a test drive. The worst I can say is no. Thanks for reading.
