Thought I would share some images and thoughts on Kayaks for the Ridgeline. I just discovered this community and joined today. This is my first Ridgeline and I love it! I picked up day before Easter. So much space, love the storage in the back seat and in the bed! We bike, kayak, hike, etc… so this truck works great! We bought two Delta kayaks, wonderful. We use the J-hook racks with locks and also use a DocksLocks lock cord to lock the Kayak to the J-hooks if traveling.
The Ridgeline is fantastic for the Kayaks. I can get in the bed and mess with straps easily. I use two small aluminum foldable steps from Harbor Freight on each side of truck to put Kayaks up and for strapping. Easy to use and tie down! Let me know if you have any questions.
