Just today, I am taking deliver on a 2014 RTL and would like some guidance on the best place to locate a few accessories I'd like to get for the truck:

1. Full size spare- I will be towing regularly and would like to add one. Dealer wanted over $500. Tire Rack has one for around $300. Any better options out there?

2. Soft tonneau cover (probably a tri-fold)

3. Roof rack, not partial between OEM vs aftermarket

4. Rear underseat storage- any thoughts on the Honda tray vs. Honda storage vs. Du Ha?

Thanks for any input!

Get your wheel at a salvage yard ... cheap; get your new tire installed (TireRack or ??) and save over 1/2 the money.
2. Soft tonneau cover (probably a tri-fold)

I have OEM... I like the look, but honestly have only used 3 or 4 times in 9 years.
4. Rear underseat storage- any thoughts on the Honda tray vs. Honda storage vs. Du Ha?
OEM "Tray" works great... perfect for any & all needs I've enountered. Does not need to be removed when you need the whole area flat, and does not limit long item storage with vertical side walls of other devices/methods. Allows complete access from the sides w/o lifting rear seats. Substantial "lip" contains liquids in case of the accidental spill..... Love it. (GREAT for wet umbrellas that slide under quickly as you're getting out of the rain)
Thanks for any input!
Hope this helps with your decisions. :)

For underseat storage, I use 3 15 quart Sterlite see thru containers. The fit under the seat, does not interfere with raising or lowering the seats.

I concur with Dnick, get a decent rim from wreckers or online, as it's only a spare.

I use Thule roof rack, and can take it off crazy easy when not in use ( winter) and more streamlined look OEM. I find OEM rack looks chunky. Not my idea of good looks .. imo, personal preference.
