Made sure it was in 1st gear with the parking brake set, and towed it home with no problem at all. So, IMO, flatbed isn't necessary, but dollies aren't recommended for long distance tows.
    Four wheels must be up or down. It doesn't matter, but they cannot be split. You can't have front moving, back not, or vice versa. It will destroy (in a few hundred feet!) your center diff.

    When I say 4 wheels up or down, I mean off pavement, stationary.. or on pavement spinning.

    It doesn't matter how you do it, it just needs to happen.

    Ok, so this will be helpful. The repair shop said that the fuel pump was only delivering 6psi, their repair option was to buy the full full pump assembly from Subaru at $520 + rushed shipping. So I instead figured well if it is just the pump I will replace that first and hope it isn't something in the assembly that is messed up. I bought a walbro fuel pump off ebay. When we went to go install it we noticed as soon as we pulled the assembly out of the tank that the fuel pump regulator was twisted and the o-ring had popped out the sides. We were able to take it apart, get the o-ring sat back in the housing and pressed it all back together, and now i get 40 psi, WOOT! I am only using that as a temporary fix because that is just messed up how it came apart like that, but when i get a new regulator i am going to install that walbro pump along with it since i have it anyways. The bastards at the shop freaking dinged the front a little and really put a smack on the rear bumper, creased my rear plates and chipped the paint on the rear
