Dude, I dig your style. Do you have any other future projects for your Fit? I'd love to see how far you can go with the "Wilderness" theme. Don't you wish that we had a AWD option.

Thanks man.. Yeah I have a few ideas that are in the works, my buddy and myself are trying to figure how to pull them off and build them for a Fit.. A LOT of Subie inspiration going on haha.. Won't be too off road, but I want to to be very usable for going camping and stuff like that..


Hopefully soon I'll have some more updates.. the brain is starting to turn with ideas.. after 2 years of " ok this car I won't touch" UGH! That didn't last long haha..

Here is a update on the light bar.. I got it fully built.. priming it and getting it painted so I can mount it up, and then add fog lights

luv it! i sold my rally style wheels, and totally miss them.

I want to do something similar but have the lights coming from either side of the front badge
But I feel the only way to do it is with a light bar
Was hoping to just screw them through some gaps but maybe not that easy

https://www.dropbox.com/s/qfdp83jq2u..._1109.JPG?dl=0

they were 195/65/R15 (virtually no rubbing)

they made the fit 1/2" taller than stock, and somehow i got better freeway gas mileage as well.

they are not true rally tires, but i was very confident off roading them, and they were great at the beach

Awesome, thanks.. We're you lowered at all or stock height? That is the idea I'm going for as far as meaty tire

I was stock height with those 195/65/R15. rubbed only once on front drivers side during a bump at 40 mph. did not rub at all with whole family of 4 in car with camping gear on a 200 mile road trip.

overall tire diameter was 1" taller than stock all in the sidewall. it was great. gave the fit a real unique look

another photo with those tires:

Awesome, I def like the look of the meatier tire.. I just can't find rims I'm happy with to give that rally/off road look yet What width would that be like a 15x6?
