      Just received my set of H&R Lift springs, but it will be a while before I get them on. These will have to do as 'before' photos

      From what I've read, anything beyond a 9" wide wheel, you need closer to a 25 offset. Not sure if anyone with experience can chime in.

      Sucks about the 21's. I guess if she's willing to pay for them, why not

      nice progress on the build. with the more offroad tires what was the difference in overall diameter vs stock? Just curious if it's thrown off your speedo.

      The roof rack idea is cool, the thing about most of these cars w/ the factory rails it's a PITA to remove as they're usually bolted from the inside and getting to those bolts require you mess w/ the headliner. Is it the same with this Atlas?

      I don't know the exact difference, but the speedo does read a bit lower at higher speeds.

      And yeah, to pull the factory rails you'd need to drop the headliner. For now, I'm hoping I won't have to do that.


      Got the box squared away for our fam vacation coming up.

      I currently have the rhino rack pioneer platform rack that came off my 4runner. I'm waiting for them to come up with an application for the atlas so I can throw it on

      Springs haven't gone in just yet... But I hope to have them in before the middle of October. We're headed down to Overland Expo East, so getting them done before that is our goal. We did just get our lightbar, so getting that mounted and a fairing sorted out should finish up the roofrack for now.

      Nice, i'm really leaning towards doing a spring lift vs a spacer lift as the pricing seems to almost be the same.

      Been following on IG for a while, loving the way this is turning out. You have been part of the reason i'm leaning to white again over PGM or Silver.

      not much progress, but we're headed down to Overland Expo East tomorrow. Element LED lightbar still needs to be wired up, but it's mounted at least.
