    I just bought a 2012 MDX; I wanted a 4×4 truck for camping/overlandish adventures and really thought I was settling for a City vehicle until I saw your build; very nice! After seeing your ride I would like to follow your foot steps on the suspension and tires and was wondering if you needed the lift kit to fit the slightly larger tires or could you do the tires first and lift later? Did you add the Tema4x4 2″ rear spacer in lieu of the 1″ rear spacer in the readylift kit?

    This is an awesome conversion. Good Job. How much ground clearance do you have now? Is there anything else you would add to your MDX?
