Hello from FL

Hello! I just recently bought a dark cherry pearl 2009 RTL Navi Ridgeline. It has the factory roof rack, factory chrome side steps and factory rear under storage system. We really love this thing. I don't want to over accessorize but I just wanna keep adding stuff!

I've been working for a Honda dealership for the last 5 years and finally bought a Honda. This is the first one I saw come in that I couldn't pass up.

I'm looking forward to participating in the forums.

Welcome and keep on adding accessories!

Change out those OEM tweeter's, and you'll hear a world of difference, right off the bat!

Re: Hello from FL

Thanks for the welcome. I've been on the service side my whole career. Tech and then service manager. I have access to VIN Stats and TSB's so feel free to PM me.

My other cars are a 2003 Mach1 Mustang and a 2012 Boss 302. The Ridge replaced my old Grand Marquis, which was my family hauler. The Ridge has a more generous back seat than the old Merc, which my 3 kids really appreciate.

When I mean accessorize, I mean more like factory stuff like a sport grill and maybe paint my wheels to look like sport. No spinners or Dubs for me. It is so addicting!

I'm not much of a sound system guy so the stereo sounds pretty good to me. When I run out of stuff to accessorize, I may start on the stereo.
