Nice setup, what size are your tyres and what roof cage is that?
Also, where did you run the wiring for the roof lights?

I have just bought a 2004 XS that I want to setup similar to yours.

Cheers,

Hey Bigfoot

The tires are BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2LT215/65R16 D. I would not go any bigger.. I ended up having to cut away (and bang away) lots of the cladding in the wheel wells to stop the rubbing when turning.
The tires gave me about another inch of lift.

The wiring was run through the headliner, then up through the rubber of the roof rack tracks.

It's a Kuat Vagabond 2, bought it at REI.
