You transformed your wagon into a very decent off road vehicle.

What's interesting is you decided to spend the time and effort to modify a wagon for off road use many suv owners refuse to entertain driving in off road conditions. My guess is only die hard off roaders will try with some beefing up theirs to help prevent off road rash. And front wheel drive still doesn't stop you from going off road. The large skid plate is very innovative to protect the engine from collecting unanticipated large rocks looking to put a dent in the engine or xmission. I'm sure rocks are disappointed with your lifted wagon.

A beautiful lifted mod. Maybe not street beautiful but it looks gorgeous in the woods. Very purposeful looks.
Hey thank you for your response!

This project has come a long way since getting stuck in open fair grounds during rain season a few years back. Sure I could have bought a capable vehicle for off-road, but I haven't seen many people use a Saturn for this kind of application. Besides, Saturn's are pretty resilient like the cockroach.

Yes, you'd think that SUV owners would use their vehicle for it's intended purpose. Although it's really satisfying parking this thing next to those shiny lifted pavement princesses. Perhaps it might be a status symbol for them? I don't know.

Yup, two kinds of pavement princesses, although I'm not talking about the truck stop kind.
