I have had my PUP with 21's for 2 months now, and I am in the mountains of northern NM. To say our roads are bad would be a serious understatement, I equate them to dirt roads with black paint. Having said that, I have already driven 9 miles of dirt road with the MY, and it did fantastic. The ride is stiff, but no where near my older Subaru STi, and the MY corners better than the Suby. I try not to hit large potholes of course, but there are sections here that cannot be avoided, as the cross the entire lane. So far the ride is good.
