I agree which is why I placed in a Dana 44 in back axle, 3:63's gearing, Tracloc, heavy duty springs factory ordered in '99. I figured if I was going to buy one new I might as well do it right... Kept the 5-speed manual, Rag-top, for authentication - just wished I ordered Air Conditioning, a Block Heater and an Old Man Emu suspension, but Bilsteins work well enough.

Sounds familiar...thousands of dollars later you have one built the way they should have been.

I was quickly researching outbacks and it seems they are top heavy, so it this what gives them the bite to get out of the mud and snow?

Exactly... always the case isn't it...

I've not heard this. In any case I don't think that has any real benefit, weight is weight. Their prowess in mud and snow is likely due to a number of factors. First would be their AWD system. They pretty much invented the technology, it's much better than all but maybe Audi. Ground clearance is another factor (highest in class), and this includes a relatively 'smooth' underside which does help them over things like snow and mud without hanging up. They also seem pretty well balanced front to rear.
