May sound lame, but since the Tribeca is the replacement for my wife's mini-van that died, I would like to see direct replacement headrest monitors for the kids sitting in back. Sure missed being able to turn on a movie for the kids on our first long trip in our Tribeca.

You didn't order a rear entertainment system?

It didn't come off the lot with one. Is it possible to order the factory version and install it? Is the wiring there for the option?

You can't add it to a model that doesn't have it. You would have to go aftermarket at this point. Were you not made aware that you could get a Tribeca with a nice fat 9" fold out screen with wireless headsets and a DVD player?

Default Bra

Our front end is getting creamed driving to Tahoe with all the sand they lay down. The paint seems to chip to the bare metal. And the plastic valence is not taking it too well either. Most chips are on the painted bumber surface, the leading edge of the hood, and the front quarter panels just ahead of the wheels. The rest of the car handles the nasty road grime and grit just fine.

I have looked for a BRA for the B9, but so far no luck. There is the front hood deflector, but that leaves 70% of the problem.

I purchased a Dealer Add on to replace the need for a bra or bug deflector. I haven't had them put it on yet, but it sounds like a good idea...maybe someone else here can set me straight if I am wrong...its clear 3M material, it goes up the hood about 10 inches and covers everything including the bumper. Not sure if every Tribeca comes with it, but mine came with the material already on the rear doors where they flare out. Its a clear sticker.

I have had bra's on my other vehicles and they scratch the heck out of the paint once dirt get under it and the bug deflector I have on my truck really alters the wind flow and I get a lot of wind noise with it on. take it off and the noise went away. Hopefully the 3M stuff will work out well...I am a little worried about it yellowing after a few years in the AZ sun, but I guess we'll see when and if it ever does.

It may be something you want to look into.

That is a good solution. But expensive. I think its around $300. If you do opt for this when the car is BRAND NEW with no chips. Since we leased our car I opted for the Newport Pearl Blue (paint code 64z) touch-up paint from Subaru for $10 vs the 3M for $300. I was willing to spend about $60-$80, but after that - LET THE STONES FLY BABY! I got war paint!

BTW - Good luck finding Subabru paint colors anywhere other than Subaru. I went to multiple stores and noone had them.

I've seen the Stoneguard/3M/etc clear plastic coatings work well for preventing this type of damage. Wish I'd gone ahead & put them on my '06 OB when it was new - I've got a "sandblasted" bumper, too.

Just wanted to keep everyone updated on my proggress. Currently I am working on three things for my Tribeca. I have some springs for a legacy that the delear here thinks will fit and lower the car 1.5 inches and will retain the stock ride quality, I also have an exhaust intended for the Leagacy that I am in the process of getting put on. Ran into a problome with the rear Y pipe not being made right but should have that fixed soon. One thing I did do already was install a Sub in the back and I can say that that by its self makes a huge differance in the overall sound of the Stereo system. My front doorpanels are almost done and will house the before mentioned 8", 4" and tweeter. All MB quart Q" these will be powered by an A/D/S Amp so it should sound about as good as one can excpect for doing a low line converter off the factory deck. Once I get this all done I will be working on doing away with the factory stereo compleatly. What I'm going to do is find a aftermarket head unit that will support an exsternal screen and also support a wired remote and retain the stock steering wheel controls and possibly the stock upper display. If I can't retain the stock upper display I'm going to get a differant one and do a smaller display in the same place as the factory unit as with the custom adapter that I'm going to be making it should be equal to a double din. Then I woll just put a scrren in the top for a DVD. Everything I mentioned will be all custom done as I have found nothing that is made for our cars yet. I'm also working on a custom grill that will get rid of the chrome compleatly. should have that done some time this week. If my grill stock from grillguy.com shows up. As this stuff gets done I will post picks.

I was thinking of that, too. I wonder what the spring rates are between the Legacy and Tribeca. The Tribeca is about 1000 lbs heavier. But I use to think my wifes Legacy 2.5i road soft. Compaired to the Tribeca it rides firm. i'll be very interested to see how that goes.

SGT Goltz,

Mind sharing your experience/how-to when you added a sub in the back? I have an amp and some 12s that are sitting around and would love to put them in the back.

Thanks,
PM

I used an MB Quart pwd 254 I think is the model number. I wanted to make it flush with the allready exesting floor so I made the box myself I was going to finnish it up last night but due to the fact that its 33 degree's outside I didn't get it done. I used a low/line converter and taped into the factory deck. Although If I could find out where the subout on these things are I would rather of taped into that. But my suspesion is mine that didn't come with it from the factory didn't have the wireing for it. If you remove the back storage box you will have only about 7" of height to work with so not a lot of room to work with. I'm going to be fibergalsing the bottom of the box soon to get the height of the box down. I made it as low as I could and still clear the sub. And I'm still a good inch too high. I also purchesed some dark gray carpet that matches the rest of the car to re-cover the rear. As the factory tan carpet gets dirty if you look at it wrong. I will take some picks tonight when I get home. And post them.

P.S Anyone know anyone that has laser cutter that can cut some plexi for me? Looking to do it flush with the floor but need it vented some how so want to cut some simple designs out of it and doing it by hand isn't working out to well

I live in downtown Philly where the roads stink.....and this truck is great! I will post pics as soon as I can figure out how to.

Anyone find a front brush guard for the Tribeca yet? LOL. We get a lot of fog between my house and our mountian chalet so some extra fog lights would help a LOT!

I actually saw a Tribeca locally with a brush guard on it. However, it was the type that only covers only the front section of the bumper, similar to the picture below. Also, it didn't have the bar going accross the middle to mount any lights to. It was more of a dress up piece. Wish I had taken a picture of it.

I contacted Romik and they informed me that they carry the side-steps and bull guard for the Tribeca's. I'll post up more as soon as I get pics and more info.

Their products can be seen at www.romik-usa.com
I'm interested in their bull guard w/ skid plate product

Here's a pic of their products. Answers both of your posts I think. I really dig both accessories, but I fear the step may block the puddle lights. Anyone know for sure?

Thanks for the reply SGT Goltz.

I'll probably do the LOC thing as well since getting to the rear sub is so easy and it probably won't make much difference if it's not used.

Now how would I punch through the firewall to run some large gauge wire for the amp? Anyone have any suggestions? I took a look from the engine bay and the interior but nothing pops out at me yet.

thanks,

I like the side steps but swayed away from the bull bar. I'd like it either a bit lower and/or wider. That pic certainly makes it look great, but its a bit deceiving. It only comes in stainless right now, and it doesnt look like a perfect match with the side steps.

YMMV.

If you go to Romik, the main site, not USA site, you can see a different angle on the bull bar for the Tribeca.
Cant link yet, since I have very limited posting history.
