thought I'd drop in to this thread, since it's such a bustling hub of activity!
not even a post a year! but I like to hear myself type so...
I'm around palmer lake, colorado. bought my Baja at monument motors (subaru specialists & real good people, I highly recommend them)
I honestly didn't much care for the baja (my need for speed demanded an STi) but the wife loved it, and so that's what we got. and since then it's really grown on me. there's a lot of decent trails around here, so I imagine we actually throw that thing around in the rocks more than most people. the front and rear bumpers are pretty rashed up from dragging over things, and the undercarriage has all kinds of bumps and bruises.
If anybody wants to go hang out and see what their 'roos (and skills) are capable of, drop me a line!
