We installed a skid plate on our Ridgeline in which has now been removed due to damage caused by ground contact while taking our Ridgeline off-road.

Just sharing!

LOL, we have a skid plate that we cannot reinstall due to vehicle damage caused by ground contact traversing a relatively easy back road.

On the flip side, thank goodness we had the skid plate or more serious damage would have occurred.

Conclusion: The Ridgeline will now remain on the main roads while we'll use our other better suited pickups for the rougher terrain. This is in no way intended to belittle the Ridgeline in any way, we are using it as it is superbly designed!

Just put a dirt bike on a hitch carrier. It'll go far more places, and much faster, than any rigged-out 4x4.

Dirt bike too intimidating? You can get a little Honda Trail 125 that will still go far more places than any rigged-out 4x4, and it has a semi-automatic transmission! Very easy to ride!
And what about these now?

It is sad that Honda can't offer anything more than worthless trim packages. Lift the damn thing 2" with protection and tires and the sales would skyrocket.
As long as it is not done at the sacrifice of the Ridgeline's most attractive and unique attributes, it's superb handling, ride and overall comfort!

You removed the skid plate due to damage? Isn't that what it's made for? Must be missing something here.
The four front mounting points were damaged to the point of no longer being able to support the skid plate. I have not taken the time yet to disassemble the front grill to see how, or if, the damage can be repaired.
