Safari Pilot

Decided to post pics of my ride to see what people think. All the work done, I did it myself with help from a friend. I have a ready lift kit on stock rims with 260/65R18 with goodyear duratrac tires. I had to install wheel spacers to offset the rims. I also upgraded the stock rotors with slotted and crossed ones all around. I still working on more mods.

Awesome! Now all you need to complete the look is the famous chrome dood. (Well, famous around these parts, at any rate.)

I think so, I count 4...
But I would like to know where those rocker switches came from. I like the near OEM look of them.

The pic of the missing lug was found the next morning. Up late working on my ride. The switches I ordered off EBay. Thanks for the feed back. Working on more mods, next is grill insert and then spare tire rack.

Be great to see shots of the entire truck.
The Duratrac is proving a popular alternative to the BFG MT and Goodyear MTR tire amongst the guys I wheel with.
Switches are Carling Contura V, the type I used in my truck: Custom made is possible https://www.otrattw.net/

Did you put the TRD locking differential in there? How and where did you find a diff to put in there? And at what cost was it to do that?

I'm all stock, no upgrade on differential or transmission. All I have is drop in K&N air filter. When I go offroad, I just turn off the traction control. I have only used the diff lock once. I been testing out different combinations and found out turning off the traction control changes the grip. I think having good tires and turn off traction control is all you need. The 4wd system on Hondas is not like others. Just experiment with it and you will found out.

Hey JDMTECH1983, I see you have a custom made roof rack for your pilot, can you post more details about it? mounting points location, manufacturer, attachment method, weight rating, instructions, anything helps! thx
