Traxda website states keep it under 30.5 inches which would be a 265/50/20 tire. There's the YouTube passport that someone has tried to turn into an overland and he was able to get bigger tires in by cutting the rear wheel well area. I have the 1.5 level kit going in later this week and going with 265/50/20 open country at2s

I just ordered the 2in lift.. Looking at wheels and tires now. Interested in this topic. Def not trying to go cutting up the passport to fit wheels under it. Post what you find/decide on.

You can't have it both ways, you either improve the MPG or improve its off-road clearances.
Incidentally I've heard that white vehicles get better gas mileage - so maybe a paint job?
No, but I can optimize it for my purposes. You've really got nothing helpful to add on this forum. You're one of those toxic "can't" negative energy people. Def ignoring you from now on.

I got sucked into watching some of his videos over the weekend. I like the look with the mods, but he's borderline abusing a new vehicle. To each their own, I guess. I'm interested in some tire/suspension upgrades, but not planning to tackle that sort of terrain.

Finally got them put on! 2” lift. 265/50R20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers
Traxxx leveling kit? So 30.4 inches fills the wheel wells pretty well. Did you call the speedo? How much room from rubbing at full turn? Much stock compression will it handle before rubbing? I'm installing the kit tomorrow. Won't get off road wheels until the summer. Have 18s and Blizzaks on it atm.

Traxda 1.5 front and .5 rear with 265/50/20 Toyo open country at. Would loved to have gone bigger, but no option to cut and can't buy multiple sets of tires to see what fits
Any issues with installation or AWD, sensors, etc? Did you have a 4x4 shop install or the Honda dealer?
I just purchased a 19 sport and had 265/50/20 Nitto Terra Grappler G2s installed. Pretty tight at full but they fit

No issue with sensors or AWD. Have a friend who has a repair shop with lift and he was able to install in about 3.5 hrs. Only install issue was that we were sent the wrong size washer. Called traxda and was able to get one from hardware store. I have rubbing only when reversing at full turn

Sorry another question because I can’t decide between Jsport lift and Traxda lift
Were you or your shop concerned about the split spacer in the rear (coming loose, etc)
How does the front spacer work since it doesn’t have the hole like Jsport
Trying to justify the cost difference as I do want to save money but don’t want to go cheap either

Didn't notice much difference between the 2 kits from pics when I looked online other than anodized on the jsport. I haven't seen the jsport parts in person, but have seen a passport and Ridgeline installed. If you go back through the forums from others, looks like some had issues with clunking from not tightening

I've also been thinking about which one I should get.

I think I’m going with Jsport, even though it costs more. I’m concerned with the rear split spacer, and the fact that the front spacer does not have a hole like the Jsport spacer. The Jsport rear spacer is one piece. If you look at a picture of the passport front coil, it has a piece that sticks up so not sure how a spacer without a hole would work.
