New shoes!!! From a 2019 Passport with new 265/45/20 Michelin tires. Costco took forever to put them on as they had to "confirm" that they would fit and not rub. I told them it would be fine.

Figure I would share some quick photos of my '16 Pilot Touring AWD. Has 78k miles. Upon moving to NV I really got into exploring the trails out here but for a bit I only had the Jsport skid plate, Thule Canyon XT basket and LED lights throughout. Recently added the Truxxx 2" lift kit, KMC KM721 18" wheels and Nitto Ridge Grappler 265/60/18 (30.5"). Hopefully my next time at the lake I can actually use my camera for some nicer photos at sunset like the images before the lift.

Future Plans:
Adding the Thule basket extension this week
Full size 30.5" Nitto spare (need to measure if it will fit in the oem spot otherwise tow hitch and a rear mount)
Steel Braided brake lines
Brake Rotor upgrade (Kinda prefer slotted over drilled but haven't researched this in years)
LED Ditch lights (Nolodesigns hood mount or maybe basket mounted)
Nolodesigns rear diff skid plate once it is released

Service History:
Dont get me started lol. Really only had the Injector issue just outside warranty but my extended covered it. Main problem is Honda techs. Started misfiring and ultimately needed a tow back to the dealer AFTER the injector replacement when it was running smooth before, just had a CEL. Before injectors they sold me on the carbon clean solution a few weeks before. I did have pumps get replaced under warranty but possibly because my wife used to daily this and would love to run it to E which is bad since fuel cools the pumps usually. Lastly, did my timing belt at 77k miles along with the oil pump seals, well when it came home it leaked all over the driveway of my new home.

The injector and timing belt issues were two different dealers here which has me question the tech ability at the dealers. Being a former Benz tech I hardly trust dealers after seeing so many hacks working at Benz, can imagine other brands. Previously we had a few VW and never had these types of issues, maybe lucky but loaners for even oil changes was nice back then.

Aside from that, the transmission was always a worry point for me but whatever. I love this thing, will be nice not having any payments soon and hopefully if the trans ever does fail there will be a nice supply from junk yards.

I like the wheels and tires. Would like to do some similar things to mine. How is the road noise with that set up?

Traxda 2 inch lift F/R, 245/70R17 Blizzaks on KMC Bully wheels. Enjoying the lift and exploring local forest roads. I don't think car camping is my thing but I like to find nice views in remote places.

My Pilot is working out great since I got used last year. Added OEM hitch and wiring with Redarc tow pro elite brake controller. May add transmission cooler at some point but still within weight for pulling a Jayco 154bh. Have more recently added crossbars, led fog lights and inchannel window molding. Next on list is full size spare and roof basket.

Love our Pilot...need to get the front windows tinted soon, maybe some new shoes when I need to replace the tires. I just cant stand all the chrome! Anyone know if vinyl wrap to cover most of them is easy to install, and lasts? Mainly want to black out the bottom trims.
