    I mean... how can you argue with 280 hp,* 4-wheel independent suspension, an available intelligent AWD system and unit-body construction, Ridgeline is always raring to go.

    Sacrifice yourself!
    So has anyone seen the Honda Ridgeline "truck pull" video on Youtube? Good stuff!! I wish the Tundra could be like the Ridgeline. The Ridgeline pulled that sled an astounding 44 feet before breaking something...

    So
    Should not be too much of an issue, if all you ever have in there is your wife's ceramic dollhouse set. True story... Neighbor had a Ridgeline. LOL

    He traded in his 2007 Ford F-150 for it. They told him that the Ridgeline would have no issues hauling his 4800 pound dry boat. The transmission overheats if he is going up a semi-steep grade for more than few minutes.

    First time he took his boat to the lake, he used the "steep" boat launch and could not get the trailer pulled up the boat ramp after loading the boat back onto the trailer. He had to have someone tow him and the trailer up the boat ramp.

    Just saw this. Why is the most American made truck left off. "Ridgeline" Give me a break...
    You are joking of course or am I living on Venus. I know you are joking. Of course Honda is known for their trucks. I was thinking Mahindra made the best trucks. If only Mahindras were made in CO. I'd buy one.

    Actually I'm waiting for the YUGO diesel 4X4 truck made in Cali with a 200cc engine. (to be green) $65K (moon beam tax included.) A steal at that price.

    I have a nice video of the vibration in my 3500 also, I shot a video of everything vibrating like mad in the back seat. I shelled out the extra $2,600 for the Aisin because it was supposed to be the better automatic and it also got me another 100 ft/lb of torque. I was disappointed at it flaring like it did, my butt puckered every time it would jump 400 rpm when making the 3 - 4 shift.

    Hell yeah that is a steal. My Tundra cost 29% of that used!! That Yugo is probably almost as capable as the Honda Ridgeline. I went to trade my Tundra for the Ridegline and they told me, add 25K to the trade and you can have the "Most rugged truck ever Built in America". How could I refuse?
    Have you given any thought into the Nissan Titan? I was actually quite impressed when I saw the warranty on that truck...

    I thought about the Titan, the Cummins in that truck was supposed to go into the Ram 1500. When Chrysler went belly up and Fiat bought them, they told Cummins to keep the engine because they have one which will fill the bill. Stupid move on Fiat's part, the little V6 Echoboost is a real POS, I think some of them have a grande inside with the pin half pulled waiting to go boom. I decided to get back into a Tundra, I'm done messing with the big trucks, my little Tundra will get things done for me.
