It seemed that on the first model year of the 1st gen Ridgeline (2005-2006), a lot of the ones on dealer lots had the roof rack installed.

I never liked the look, and was glad to find one that didn't have it.

Do you think the first few 2nd gen Ridgelines will have it?

The rails on the Pilot (which I think are higher-trim levels only) are pretty low-profile.

Hard to predict what the first G2s will have. Yes, the new Pilot rails are very low and, AFAIK, not compatible with currently-available Thule/Yakima crossbars. The Honda accessory crossbars must be mounted in predrilled holes and can not be adjusted fore or aft -- a design that is far less versatile for transporting canoes, kayaks, paddleboards or long pieces of lumber. I sure hope the G2 RL gets a more adaptable setup from the factory.

Not a chance they are standard due to FE needs...

That's OK. I'd be happy to pay for dealer-installed roof rails on a G2 RL if the design is more versatile than the Pilot's -- specifically with adjustable crossbars or otherwise configured so that Yakima or Thule could "build" on them. But in all likelihood, Honda will use the Pilot rails...ugh.

I just hope they make the gen 2 racks a bit wider, they were so narrow on the gen 1 you couldn't put a canoe on them.

Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see <a href="http://www.exam-collections.com/300-206-vce.html">300-206 Examcollection</a> these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know about <a href="http://www.exam-collections.com/300-070-vce.html">300-070 Examcollection</a>
