If you want to add Honda Ridgeline accessories to your pick-up, you might discover that either
you made your truck the most exceptional or the most execrable. Power pick-up aficionados of conventional
thinking already find the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck as unconventional, what with its ‘flying buttress’
bed-to-cab connection and four-door configuration, to mention just two unusual features. If you add some more
trimmings without regard for some sense of rational conventionality, your factory Honda Ridgeline may end up as
the ‘bad boy’ of the block.
Rational conventionality in this sense means that in accessorizing your factory Honda Ridgeline, it is
better to have a unifying rationale why the accessories were added. For instance, adding a full nose mask
without modifying any other external part could make your Ridgeline look from afar like
it suffered an aberration in body paint. People might think you tried to cover up with the mask some
dents or bad paint job after a head-on crash. Like it or not, there are people who think uncharitable thoughts
first about anything before trying to positively rationalize them.
But if you add a rear chrome bumper trim against black rubber, a front lower trim, chrome trims on the
lights, and perhaps pillar post trims, then the pickup would possibly take on a different projection: a
chiaroscuro play of light and dark, particularly if your factory Honda Ridgeline is darker colored like red,
gray or brown. In short, there would be unity in the coloration and trimmings for the vehicle, not a haphazard
slapping on of after-market accessories for its sake.
The following tips on customization will cover Honda Ridgeline
accessories in terms of functionality as the central motivation, so that by adding the accessories, your
factory Honda Ridgeline can work for you better, and look more individualized that reflects your needs to boot.
And there are truly functional Honda Ridgeline accessories you can buy as after-market add-ons.
One of these is a roof rack. Roof racks are quite common in cars to hold luggage, surfboards, skis, even
canoes, kayaks and cartoppable small boats. Because your factory Honda Ridgeline has a rather limited-length
(5.0’) bed space, some items ---most likely light ones like skis, kayaks and canoes—are better lashed atop the
pickup cab so the bed may hold heavier, looser or more bulky items.
Another one of suggested Honda Ridgeline accessories is a bike attachment ---or bikes attachment for that
matter—to hold your two-wheeled transport for exploration, leisure, exercise or all of them. With a bike
attachment –top or tailgate rig-- you need not worry if your bike is safely attached while in transit (it is),
and the bed can be used for other purposes.
Next, if you regularly carry something longer than the pickup’s bed, you may wish to attach a bed extender.
The bed extender can hold your heavier equipment or cargo more securely, such as a motorcycle, with the snap-in
attachments. An additional 16 inches of space is possible with the bed extender which will stop the cargo from
moving, an additional safety feature.
To prevent your wheels from theft, especially if they are custom, you can add wheel locks to your Honda
Ridgeline. Wheel locks require a special wrench to open and they come in either steel or alloy, or
chrome-plated triple-nickeled bright shine.
A trailer hitch is likewise one of the beneficial Honda Ridgeline accessories to add to your vehicle. It
enables the vehicle to tow 5,000 pounds of load such as a boat in its trailer, U-haul trailer or a small
wheeled trailer. The hitch consists of a detachable rig and a ball-mount for towing, or a steel pillar for
carrying a bicycle. There are also hitches for the front, when it is the vehicle that must be towed. Different
trailer hitch styles are sold for specific Ridgeline models. Be sure to know your Honda Ridgeline make and
Lastly, you should have at least a fog light as an important component of your functional Honda Ridgeline
accessories. There is not much need to explain the importance of fog lights, they being common car accessories
in wintry or cold parts of the world. But in addition to penetrating foggy environments for safer travel, they
can replace busted headlights at a pinch.
As a vehicle of its class, the Honda Ridgeline is exceptional, being styled more for adventure than for
work. It appeals more to the younger generation who often goes offroad but enjoys the mall as well. If you are
one of them, adding Honda Ridgeline accessories to your pickup will make it more expressive of you than
otherwise. And if you want an expressive, excellent pickup for both the city and wilds, be vigilant for any
Honda Ridgeline for sale, if you cannot afford a brand-new one.
Finding Honda Ridgeline accessories is not difficult. All you need to do is search online and you can access
many websites that offer the accessories for which you can comparison-shop at leisure in the comfort of your
home. However, be wary of online scams.
