oh ok.

and I donít have AAA, donít really care to get it either. the likely hood of me needing them is so slim, iíd rather just pay a tow truck or something to come get me. if i get a flat iíll just change it my self like i did in the scion Xb when i got a flat in it. damn pot hole busted the side wall out.

Interestingly enough, in 12 years of driving I have never had to change to the spare tire. I get more use out of a portable air compressor. One time the leak was faster, and I still was able to limp to a repair shop by pumping the tire back up every 20 minutes.

hahaha, speaking of spares, I need to get a 31 one to go under my truck. My grandpa had put this cable and lock on the original 28" no telling how many years ago and I went to remove it a couple months ago after getting bigger tires, turns out the padlock had corroded so badly that I had to get out the bolt cutters. That hardened steel is a real but to cut.

I don't own one nor do I want one I do live in South Western Maine in the Mt's on my 80 acres. I have a friend that lives in Ashland (just south of Fort Kent) he works for 7 Islands I don't know if they hide the Tacoma but when they go into the woods they take the Taco the Chevy's they take to town.

Yup. Not much aftermarket support for lifting. Youtube has some videos of folks taking them thru some respectable terrain.

Just watched this video and the Russians aren't affraid to take it off road.

Most people don't take their trucks through stuff like that. If you do more hardcore off roading than that the Ridgeline is not for you.

Brings back memories...I had 2 Chebby vans back in the day, a '71 and a '79.

Yeah...they both had the hippie interiors straight out of a Cheech & Chong movie. My '71 had Cragar Mags just like the pic.

Those were the days fellas. Those were the days.

for the record...
It is my understanding that both the RL and the pilot ( its twin)
have a control function that locks in their AWD syestem, sort of what toyota uses in the new generation RAV's
hit the button, you dont have any of the nonsense of back and forth between FWD and AWD/4x4 perhaps thats an option and not standard on all?
regardless its a solid option
there are some that would argue a 4 door short bed taco is basicaly the same thing at least look wise an after all the bed size is not all that much diffenert ( an SUV with a defect)
but then again I drive a regular cab, and have always been a sucker for trucks and not people haulers...
just my 2 cents but really look into that locking 4x4 thing I looked at one of these really hard to replace our aging civic that has 190 k on it instead got an 91 blazer beater with a heater to make it through the winter and milked the civic for another year...
haters gonna hate but what it really comes down to is that you can build anything in to what ever you want if you have the time and the money
honda,
chev,
whatever

speaking of...... all of this talk makes me miss waldo county ME my home for 4 years...

The RL has what's called a VTM Lock button that when pressed locks in 4wd. When this button is pushed it will only stay in 4wd to 15 mph then goes back to normal part time mode. Standard on all RLs.
