I have a Honda Element with around 355000ish KM's and I'm very on the fence about putting some money into it. I'd like to make it more capable off road and maybe make a little more power because its pretty underpowered but I don't know if its worth it with all the kilometres. Any advice?
While 355+ is to many for an engine build or anything. Why not invest in mods that can be transferrable? Aux Lighting, Tires, Wheels (assuming its a common size/bolt pattern), Roto Pax, Awnings, roof rack, basket, things like that. That way when the vehicle inevitably dies, you can pull all your goodies off and transfer them to another rig and not be to worried about losing all that investment.
Lift Kits, Bumpers, Crash bars, hitches, things like that, stay with that vehicle.
You dont need power to overland, just style!
