That's definitely in the plans man, but without the lift that I'm saving for I can make any progress in that area because I'm already at all i can fit.

Considering MDXs come stock with 18", you should be easily able to fit more.

Tire size has nothing to do with rim size. Of course I could get a bigger rim for my 31' tire that's on there right now but I'm not going up from a 16' rim until I get a lift and atleast 33"in tires. It would just be a waste right now. I'm looking to run 33's and 18' to 20' in rims.

Rim diameter size has everything to do with ground clearance. you clearly don't understand wheel and tire sizing then.

Actually, overall tire diameter has everything to do with ground clearance. Wheel diameter only plays a part in selecting a tire that fits said wheel size.

Thank you Toyomatt! Rim has absolutely nothing to do with ground clearance or tire diameter. Rims/wheels are a personal preference. Tire size is what really makes a huge difference in ground clearance. So (Brice.Hayden) before you say I don't know what I'm talking about, check your facts. No one gets bigger rims for "ground clearance" that's bs. Ever seen a 16in rim wrapped in a 40in Nitto mud grappler? Then you'd understand.

Moved LED bar to up top (mounted on roof basket) Spare BF Goodrich M/T and cone just for fun. Also finally cleared my headlights of the Orange pieces!

Your pilot is looking great! I am about to purchase a readylift kit soon. I also am looking at transmission coolers. My wheels are 16x8 with 255/70/16 AT2 grabbers. Not much we can do with suspension on these cars. I'll let you know if I find a good suspension kit.

Here's mine:

Very Very nice man! So hard to find people making pilots offroad capable so it's very encouraging to see another person doing it! I should also have the readylift suspension lift kit in about a month and a half! Also, what spacers are you running because they look great! Or is that wheel offset? And you've got that right man so hard to find anything suspension or shock wise. I'm going to see if I can make Rancho shocks work in the back, but I don't even know f it's possible! I want way more lift than 2' and 1' in back so im trying to figure out was how because Id love to fit 33's! I'm at a 31 right now with no lift and stock wheels. I don't rub at all.

I think your Pilot looks great, before and currently! I thought an led bar would look great in lower bumper grill and when I googled it yours was the only second gen pilot I saw with it.I'm glad I an able to contact you. What was the procedure in installing the led bar in bumper and where did you buy it?
