Subaru’s are made with enduring quality for those with a spirit of adventure. That is why we wanted to show you some of the first Outback upgrades you can make that allow you to travel even further off the beaten path.
To enhance this ride’s durability and overall appeal we added some offroad Subaru outback accessories. These rugged new modifications update the styling on the front fascia and add to its angular features. Keep on reading to learn more about the outback mods and upgrades on this build.

When you’re taking your Subaru Outback offroad, one of the first additions you should consider is a set of rock sliders. Sometimes rock sliders are referred to as nerf bars, but they are both essentially the same thing. Rock sliders are metal bars that sit just beneath the doors in the midsection of your vehicle. Once they’re installed, they prevent harsh damage to your vehicle’s frame and help clear larger rocky obstacles.
On this build, we used LP Aventure Rock Sliders which offer a great rugged look and the protection we needed. You can find them as a set with a matte black finish, but if you’re looking for extra customization you can order them in a bare finish and apply a powder coat to them. LP Aventure produces high quality products that we use for our Subaru custom builds. They mostly specialize in offroad accessories for Subaru vehicles which they showcase on a few builds of their own.
After rock sliders, we suggest hooking up a bumper guard on your outback since they add more armor and continue to improve its look. This bumper guard or brush guard helps to improve the styling of the front end while thwarting branches, rocks, or bushes. The LP Aventure Bumper Guard we used on this build also come in the matte black or bare finish for more customization options.
One of the best features of this bumper guard is it allows you to attach different styles of LED lighting. On this offroad Outback build we installed a 20-inch LED light bar that we sourced from LP Aventure as well. In the past, we’ve used a round style of LED lights as shown on this 2021 Subaru Crosstrek build. The round lights provide more of a rally car look while the lift bar is more subtle.
To follow up the offroad accessories on this Subaru we added a few cosmetic touches like tinted emblems. Tinted emblems are an easy mod created with a tinted film that adds an intense character to your ride. You could also smoke your emblem using a tinted clear coat to achieve a darker look as well. What’s nice about these methods is they give the emblem a unique darkened look without replacing it or interfering with the sensors most cars have behind their emblems!
On the subject of tints, we also gave this custom Outback a Window tint to complement its new blackout emblems. Window tints get a bad rep, but they actually protect you and your vehicle from harsh UV rays. It also has the benefit of adding privacy and a stern look. This offroad Subaru Outback got a 35% tint on the front windows only since the back ones are already factory tinted.
When you go to select your tint, you need to keep in mind your local laws, so that you don’t get ticketed. We always recommend a professional install for this modification. Poor tint jobs will bubble and discolor over time. Make sure your window tint installer has a good warranty to protect your investment!
Paint Protection Film
Paint is the first line of defense that prevents rust and corrosion on every vehicle. Using a protective film is a way you can increase your vehicle’s life span. Paint chips tend to damage a vehicle’s value which is why paint protection film or PPF is commonly applied to areas of high impact such as the front bumper, grille, and hood. This is even more important when driving in off-road conditions.
For further protection, a ceramic coating could be applied over the paint after the PPF is applied. Ceramic coating is another protective layer to prevent dirt build-up while deflecting debris and water. It also makes washing your vehicle super easy!
To add some all-terrain inspired character on this Subaru Outback you can apply a topographic quarter glass window graphic. We designed this topographic decal to enhance the feel of the Outback’s traveling roots. It fits perfectly into the quarter glass window behind the second-row windows. Small graphic additions like these can make your ride more personalized.
You could also apply a hood graphic to enhance the athletic character of your Outback. We offer a solid black hood stripe that can be found on the Wilderness edition and a custom topographic one. The topographic design ties in the window graphics and creates more detail to the Outback’s appearance.
Of course, there are other accessories out there from roof racks to tires.

These are all just examples of different options you have to customize your Outback at the end of the day it’s your car and whatever accessories you want to add are the right ones!
