  1. Anybody need fog lights!

    Exterior
    Is all the wiring for these already in the car? Does it just require plugging into some existing wiring harness plugs? How about the switch for inside the car? I figure that after 10 years I should finally get me a set.

  4. Advice on buying AWD Element

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Do a diff fluid change as soon as you get it. Buy a set of steel wheels and some nice snow tires (I like Firestone Winterforce tires myself) and swap them on in the winter time. Don't bother with TPMS sensors for those. Just ignore the stupid light that will come on. Did this when I lived in...

    You could always get yourself a Harbor Freight trailer and mount the roof top tent to that. Then fab up some kind of platform system you can extend and camp that way. I get the appeal of having a roof top and not having to tow a trailer, but honestly, that's about the best way to go if you ask...

    Got mine from Majestic Honda in Rhode Island. They're not cheap, but my panels needed to get attached properly.

    Might want to have him reinforce your stock rack mounting points, since they're notoriously weak. I'd have serious concerns sticking anything very heavy on the stock mounts even with an aftermarket rack. I was looking at an ARB Simpson III roof top tent until I looked into how the stock mounting...
