...this should be interesting. I was wondering if it was possible to upgrade the audio in a Tribeca considering how everything appears to be integrated.

Integrated controls make it trickier, but keep in mind subaru didn't make the stereo clarion, jvc, pioneer...or someone else did. Any competent audio shop can get the headunit wired and working with the stock controls if you have the money.

the whole system works i already checked it, the two small issues im still having is finding longer ribbon cables as they are odd pitched and for some reason my radio doesn't keep presets which is just a wiring issue or radio related. when it warms up outside so i can paint the panel i will do a final install and a walkthru.

Looks like the reflectors need the tint treatment now.

Nice idea! It would blend with the black bumper nicely.

Sweet!! What size tires are those and what size will you be getting?

Did you need to get Hub Centric Rings?

Do you have the specs to those rims i.e. Width, Offset?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm about to get some new wheels for my Tribeca and was going back and forth between 18's and 20's. Now that I see your setup, I think I will be going with 20's too.

Also, did you swap the TPMS sensors, get new ones, run without them?
