Expert Answers about Honda Ridgeline


  • Availability of Hitch Adapter that Has Higher Hitch Opening without Cutting Capacity
  • The only solution we offer that is very similar to a dual hitch adapter that does not cut the capacity of the hitch at all is the Curt # D210 which gives you a second hitch opening higher than the ball mount platform below it. I attached a picture that has the dimensions of this adapter as well as a review video.

  • Does Extang Trifecta 2.0 Tonneau Cover EX92590 Use Installation Rails

All mounting clamps are integrated into the cover itself. The cover installs without drilling and no tools are required. Please refer to the linked video from Extang.

  • Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • We have roof rack options for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, but there are no roof racks for the 2014 Toyota Prius that will work with the Ridgeline. The 2017 Ridgeline will require an entirely new roof rack. Below are a few of my recommendations. If the Ridgeline has a bare roof, then I recommend looking at the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack, # RRRS717B. This roof rack uses their Vortex Aero crossbars for reduced wind resistance and noise. Unfortunately the square bars that you currently have...

  • Tilting Hitch Mount Platform Bike Rack for Honda CR-V and Honda Ridgeline
  • We have not fit the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450 on a Honda Ridgeline or a CR-V as of yet. However, it does sit very close to the vehicle and often limits access to the rear cargo area. Another option you may like is the Swagman G10 # S64682. I have linked a video of the G10 on a 2014 Honda CR-V and you are able to access the rear hatch. It may be different for you depending on the model year you have. The G10 will hold 2 bikes up to 45 pounds each and includes a locking...

  • Tonneau Cover for 2017 Honda Ridgeline Compatible with In-Bed Trunk
  • I recommend the BAK Industries BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26602. This tonneau cover when folded back will be completely compatible with the trunk of your 2017 Honda Ridgeline and will allow it to open completely without interference.

  • 2 inch Hitch Ball Mount Recommendation with 2 inch Drop
  • The Draw Tite ball mount part # 2923 has the same 2 inch drop as the Curt you referenced and it does not have a hitch ball that comes with it or a pin so it would be your best solution.

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • I have the perfect solution for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline. My favorite tonneau cover that we carry is the BAK Revolver X2 # BAK39602 because it features a hard cover but has the capability to roll up, giving you that soft cover look with much more durability than what a soft cover has to offer. This tonneau cover uses locking blocks that lock to the locking tooth rails inside your Ridgeline truck bed to keep the cover secured instead of using the hook and loop style that you mentioned....

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors For 2009 Honda Ridgeline
  • For your 2009 Honda Ridgeline, I recommend the K-Source Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors - Clip On - Pair # KS3990. These mirrors are a fit for your vehicle. They will mount to the factory mirrors using ratcheting rubber straps and sliding clips. They have a quick release button on ratchet for easy adjustment and quick removal. They have two mirror faces that are independently adjustable to customize your view. The black plastic housing gives a clean look and protects the mirrors....

  • Towing Capacities of 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • The owners manual will be the final authority on the towing capacities of your 2007 Honda Ridgeline. From the research I did on your vehicle it looks to have a 5,000 lb total trailer weight capacity and a 500 lb tongue weight capacity. The Curt hitch part # 13385 that we offer that is a fit for your 2007 Honda Ridgeline has the same capacities as well.

  • Adapter Recommendation for Converting 7-Way to 4-Way
  • It sounds like you are just looking for a 7-way to 4-way adapter like the part # TR20141. This will plug right into the 7-way and give you a 4-way connection point. There would be no complicated wiring involved.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2006 Honda Ridgeline that is Rated for Weight Distribution
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 75280 is a fit for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline and is compatible with weight distribution. This hitch has higher towing capacities than the Curt so it would be what I would recommend. That being said this hitch (and all of our hitches for your vehicle), do not have a mount for factory trailer wiring.

  • Bike Rack that Will Allow the Tail Gate of 2008 Honda Ridgeline to be Opened
  • I contacted Swagman since we don't have any test fits of the Chinook # S64683 on a 2008 Honda Ridgeline and they confirmed that it will not allow you to lower the tail gate if you have bikes loaded on the rack. We do have a video of the Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 installed on a 2013 Chevy Silverado and there is enough room to lower its tail gate. Another option you might consider if the SportRack Ridge Swing # SR2415 which swings all the way to the side of the vehicle. It is however...

  • 2007 Honda Ridgeline Trailer Wiring and Brake Controller Install Kit Recommendation
  • You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118400. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well.

  • 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Carrier for 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Kuat NV 2 Bike Platform Rack referenced in your question has been discontinued and we no longer carry this product. It has been replaced with the Kuat NV 2.0, part # NV22B and add-on # NA22B. For a similar design with a more economical price for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline, I recommend the Swagman Quad 2+2 Platform Rack, part # S64692. Like the Kuat, this is a great platform bike rack can carry either 2 or 4 bikes. You will use the included, easily...

  • Weight Distribution for 2007 Honda Ridgeline and 3200 Pound Rockwood Freedom 2318G
  • If my calculations are correct or at least close then if the trailer is loaded to the maximum of 3,260 pounds and the tongue weight is roughly 11 percent of the gross trailer weight then at the max trailer weight the tongue weight would be around 570 pounds after adding in 200 pounds loaded behind the rear wheels of your 2007 Honda Ridgeline. So basically the tongue weight range is 263 to 570 pounds depending on if it and the vehicle are loaded or not. If the trailer is not loaded to...

  • Can Agri-Cover SnowSport Snowplow Be Used On Rear Of 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow, part # A40000HD is designed to fit 2-inch trailer hitch receivers, so there is no reason you can not install this on the back of your 2007 Ridgeline and use it to push snow. One note from the manufacturer is that the bottom of your 2-inch receiver must be 8 to 16 inches from the ground. I would recommend using extreme caution with the plow on the back of your truck for obvious safety reasons since you cannot see as well behind your truck...

  • Parts Needed to Tow Trailer with Electric Brakes and 6-Way Trailer Connector
  • What you need depends on exactly what you already have on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. If the Ridgeline has a 7-way trailer connector already, you can use a 7-way to 6-way adapter # 47549. For a brake controller I suggest the Prodigy P2 # 90885. It's one of the easiest controllers to use and setup. If your Honda has a 7-way connector you'll also have the brake controller connector under your dash and can use # 3070-P. If you don't have the 7-way a controller will need to be hardwired...

  • Will the Thule Podium Foot Pack Fit the 2013 Honda Ridgeline
  • For your 2013 Honda Ridgeline, we will have a roof rack solution for your application. Unfortunately, Thule does not have a kit that will allow them to install the Podium feet on to the Honda Ridgeline. Thule has the Traverse Foot Pack # TH480 and fit kit # THKIT1510 that are confirmed to fit your Honda Ridgeline. This foot pack will work with Thule Square Load Bars, like # THLB58. If you have these loads bars all you will need to get are the feet and fit kit. If your current bars...

  • Installation of Relays of the # 118253 on a 2010 Honda Ridgeline
  • To install the Tow Ready # 118253 on your 2010 Ridgeline, first find the relay block. The relay block is located under the dash above where the driver's left knee would be, and the fuses install in the subfuse box located on the firewall in the engine compartment. To access the relay block, you'll need to remove the driver's side end of the dash (the part that's up against the door when it's closed) and insert a screwdriver into the hole that's there to pry the relay block up off it's mounted...

  • T-One Wiring Harness To Replace Factory Trailer Wiring On 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • Yes. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # 118400, can be used to bypass factory tow package wiring in your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. As long as the functions at your tail lights are working correctly, this wiring harness can be used to give you the 4-way flat connector. Before replacing, you may want to check fuses and put a circuit tester like # 3808 on the wires to test functions.

  • Can the BAK X2 Revolver Cover be Easily Removed from a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • The BAK X2 Revolver # BAK39602 for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline is attached to its rails at the front of the bed via 2 bolts on each side. Removing those will allow the cover to come off. Putting it back on is easy you just have to make sure it is lined up properly. The cover is not really meant to come on and off frequently. I have linked the instructions for you. The covers are custom made to fit the trucks they were designed for. If the correct cover was purchased and it does not fit...

  • Weight Distribution and Brake Controller Recommendations for a 2014 Honda Ridgeline Sport
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If we go by the maximum your 2014 Honda Ridgeline can tow then we are looking at a tongue weight anywhere between 380 pounds (10 percent of the dry trailer weight) and 750 pounds (15 percent of the max the...

  • Will The HitchMate TruckStep Extentendable Fit The 2017 Honda Ridgeline Storage?
  • We have not test fitted this product with your 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I can give you some measurements for you to determine if it will fit. The setp when fully retracted sits 3 inches from the end of the reciever. The extension bar will rest directly under your hitch receiver and will be 12-7/8 inches deep behind the receiver when step is down and retracted or 15-1/2 inches underneath hitch end when fully retracted. I have attached a diagram with further measurements to assist.

I recommend the Access Lorado Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover, part # A46039. This cover uses an XT-Dial Weather Seal that helps keep rain, snow and dirt out. The cover itself sits about an inch above the truck bed rails when installed. There are no covers that are 100 percent weatherproof so if you need something...

  • Installing an Electric Trailer Brake Controller in a 2006 Honda Ridgeline

You might check the owner's manual or with Honda to verify what your specific Ridgeline was originially equipped with. If you find you do already have the wiring and just need a 7-way connector at the rear then you can use # 37185. Then if you have the connector under your dash, for a brake controller I suggest the Tekonsha Prodigy...

I am not familiar with any bed side rails that do not have a lip on the inner part of the bed. The Tonno Pro Tonno Fold Soft Tonneau Cover, part # TP42-600 does have to clamp to the lip on the bed rail. If you have a bedliner covering up the lip of the bed rail you will have to cut a small section of the bedliner away so the clamp can attach to the lip of the bed rail.

You can mount an 8 to 12 inch tire on it with 4 or 5 bolt mounting pattern and it can be used as a dolly. But it doesn't pivot like a caster. Another option is to use an actual trailer dolly such as # MT70225. It is limited to 600 pounds tongue weight and as far as gross trailer weight it depends on how much you are able to push/pull around with the dolly....

  • I have a solution to carry your bikes in the bed of your 2017 Honda Ridgeline that will not require bolting to the truck bed, but the Thule Insta-Gater # TH501 is not confirmed or guaranteed to work in your truck bed. The best solution I have for you is the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack # S64761. This tailgate pad allows you to carry your bikes over the tailgate of your truck, does not require any drilling, and will not require the bike's front wheel to be removed. The...

  • How to Determine if 2008 Honda Ridgeline has Standard or CK Tail Light Sockets
  • To determine if your sockets are standard or CK you will need to test them with a circuit tester like # 40376. After connecting this to the grounding point you will want to test each of 4 studs in your lighting socket. If the hot sides are on the same side you have a CK type bulb and if they are opposite of one another then you have a standard bulb. See attached image. The Putco # P287431R-P are the confirmed fit red tail light bulbs for your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. I have linked...

  • Can 13 Inch Trailer Tires Be Used in Place of 12 Inch Trailer Tires
  • The ST175/80-13 trailer tire size is approximately 3.6 inches taller than the tires you have now. Half of that is applied above the axle center line so there will be less than 1/2 an inch of clearance between the fender and the top of the tire. You should have about 3 inches of clearance to account for travel of the suspension. Going to a 13 inch tire will not work unless you can raise the fenders up about 2-5/8 inches. What you could do is go to a 145/80-12 tire such as # AM10140. It...

  • Where Does the Tow Ready Trailer Wiring 118253 Install on a 2010 Honda Ridgeline
  • You are right. The location for the install port on your 2010 Honda Ridgeline for the part # 118253 is different than for the Pilots. I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready and he said that the harness that the black converter box plugs into on your vehicle is behind the kick plate on the driver side. So the panel to left of where the driver's feet will be is what you would need to remove to install the box.

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for a 2010 Honda Ridgeline

The # 11953 will be sold in a quantity of one so for a pair of mirrors you will want to purchase a quantity of 2. These mirrors will mount on either the driver or passenger side.

  • Missing Towing Module on 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • I am not sure what towing module they are talking about. If your 2007 Honda Ridgeline came with the factory tow package that included a 7-Way trailer connector at the back then the only reason any part of the towing package would be missing is if someone removed it. It is also possible that the 7-Way on the vehicle is not a factory 7-Way. So it would appear that you either need to have that missing part installed or hardwire in a different 7-Way connector. It is probably less money to...

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • It would appear that the 2006 Ridgeline either came with a factory installed 7-Way connector at the back or it didn't. If it isn't present then your model must not have come with it. But you can add one. To add a 7-Way you will first need to install a 4-Way using wiring harness # 118400. Then you can install 4- and 7-Way kit # ETBC7 to add the 7-Way and retain use of a 4-Way as well. I have linked some videos that show and explain the ETBC7 installation for you. If you also need a...

  • Difference Between Fastway e2 And Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important thing to know is the total tongue weight. That is the tongue weight of the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow added to the weight of any cargo placed behind the rear axle. To compare the Fastway system like part # FA92-00-0800 to the Equal-I-zer part # EQ37100ET, I would go with the Equal-i-zer. They both have trunnion spring bars and can handle similar weight but the Equal-I-zer has a 4-point sway control...

  • Solution Hitch Install on 2006 Honda Ridgeline Where Holes Don't Line Up

You will want to look for flaking paint and physical stress marks on the hitch before and after you attempt to bend the hitch back....
