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 :)
It took a little while to get here (maybe the Covids) but the front skid plate finally arrived looking good and feeling solid. It went on the Ridgeline with ease, no adjustments necessary. The fitment is better than factory. I can finally stop worrying about that aluminum oil pan hanging down trying to catch road rubbish. Perhaps the rear pan is next? Very nice, very macho.
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.
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!
