Very true, including a very over-sized air filter to catch all that desert sand.If that's the 3.5 then it's sitting in the engine comparment sideways (compared to how it sits in ours now). So it's totally different...Honda ran almost stock versions of the Ridge in the previous ones. The last Ridge to run the Baja, from what I saw had special exhausts, a few simple engine mods, upgraded suspension and tires and that's about it.
... except for the 'maybe' Ridgeline body it 'might' be wearing.That's a fully custom-built, definite-purpose vehicle that may wear sheet metal similar to the next-generation Ridgeline according to the author's opinion. This really doesn't have anything to do with the Ridgeline.
