Welcome to the club!
If you're new to the brand, I highly recommend you check out the "New to Subaru" thread
as well as the break-in procedures
since you have a new Subaru vehicle.
You are one of many former Jeep Wrangler owners who switched to the Subaru XV, known as just the Subaru Crosstrek in North America.
Since you've got off-road adventures in mind, I would highly recommend contacting shops such as Primitive Racing, Gorilla Offroad, etc. to verify skid plate availability. I've also heard rumors that Subaru of America may make the internationally-available factory skid plates available in the USA again.
