Hi, welcome to the site!

Interesting car in the background, looks like a three wheeled Patriot conversion.

On the build, I'd start with a slightly larger, more aggressive tire, a set of skid plates, and recovery points / tow hooks front and back.

If you're staying with factory 16" rims, the largest tire you can use without any modifications is 235/65/16 or around 28".

A couple of tires that might work are the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W and the Goodyear Wrangler Workhorse A/T.

You might also ask Discount Tire for some input, they've done a lot of work on this board with fitting tires and rims on the Patriot.

After the tires, skid plates, and tow hooks are on, take it out and wheel it, and see if you really need / want the hassle and expense of installing a lift, especially since it's only a FWD.

How can you possibly think you could waste your time building an "Off road" vehicle that is FWD only.......Your kidding right.

You will be limited by your FWD, but like you said, it is your car, go nuts!

Lift, bigger tyres, skid plates, tow hooks, all good starting points

You wanna do these first before splashing cash on light bars, rock sliders, ladders, snorkels, etc. Without the basics, you won't get to utilize the extras
