I ordered both the front and rear skid plate for my 2006 Honda Ridgeline. I have been building my Ridgeline in to an Overland Touring rig and as anyone knows who has tried to do a build like this, there is hardly any aftermarket gear for these trucks. I have been modifying items for Jeeps and other rigs to make them work on mine which has been fun but really challenging. I was about to start fabricating some skid plates when I stumbled on a blog post that brought me to the Burtman site. I was so stoked to find these in the first place but have to say the service and speed that these items arrived was incredible. Additionally they are super easy to install and the instructions were good. I spent last Thursday in the Oregon Sand Dunes Recreation area and put these to the test in Sand, mud, water, and rough road driving. Then yesterday and today I did a couple of short session in rutted out mud trails and deep crossings and have had no issues at all. They held up great and were repeatedly filled with debris. If there were more Mods offered by Burtman that I needed, they would be my #1 supplier. I wish I could upload some pics of the plates in use, but oh well.
I have a 2017 Ridgeline and put the skids on a while ago and it's saved me quite a few times. I go duck hunting and do very limited offroad but they should be there from the factory. The factory oil pan sits super low and there is no protection without these! I also have the Burtman bull bar which a simple design and I could probably do a review also.
I emailed Jason the other day because I really want the new prerunner bar he's doing (saw the prototype pics on the Ridgeline forum). I called this morning and he said they're super busy and still a few more weeks for the new bar. If anyone wants a nice used bull bar, let me know. I have the best look when I call or text :)
I have just unpacked my skid plates (ordered two) very nice good quality and you can read the instructions.
Jason @ Burtman industries was very good to deal with as he was answering my emails well into the evening, which sure helped by getting quick responses.
I will get skid plate on next weekend probably, my 2nd skidplate has been picked up by a buddy today as well.
I had mine shipped two together using USPS Jason helped me with as I'm in Canada. I would not hesitate buying from Burtman products again as they are very accommodating, and they can get most any automotive item!
Easy install. Great quality. Super service. Purchased front and rear. For the front I just jacked up one side a few inches to get under. Wheels didn't even need to come off the ground. For the rear no jack needed and I just slid under.
The was my second purchase from Burtman. Got the Romik Running Boards first and looking to get the Sprint Booster next!
