    The all black is nice but wouldnt go with our gray.


    Sorry Tom, gonna have to chose a Douche brand. Westin, Vanguard or Blackhorse, and they all carry a shown name.

    Re: PIMP my PILOT

    Hey, one more opinion.

    We are partial to these as well.
    http://www.handa-accessories.com/viewer ... boards.jpg

    But these are of extruded aluminum, which I have read can dent easily.

    So I found a site that has these:

    http://www.autoanything.com/GenericPage ... uctID=3740

    Opinions? Might match a touch better with the bull bar but does it blend as nicely?

    Just don't go to any of the Go To sites.
    www.GoToAutoAccessories.com

    They are a scam and there are many complaints on them including me. They will take your order then tell you the item is on backorder forever and if you try to cancel they say you can't then relent as long as you pay a 15% restock fee.

    Re: PIMP my PILOT

    Thanks for the heads up. True, its buyer beware.

    Although the site http://www.autoanything.com/nerf-bars/6 ... 90776.aspx shows that its recommended at the bottom, a look at bbb.org shows a different story.


    Which, by the way, just going back on the car buying experience, I did also check the dealers against bbb.org, in an effort to minimize the BS I may have to go through.

    BUt EMS, you didnt chime in. Liking hte HOnda OEM Ive shown or the Romik?

    I like the first but notices the URL is handa-accessories.com not honda. Weird but it does say they changed the name.

    As you said the extruded aluminum tends to dent easier. Also be aware you will need a rivnut tool to install.

    What about the rear bumber? Do you have a tow hitch? The easy way is to just get a bar for the receiver.

    Are you going to add wind deflectors to the hood and windows? This is something that has become automatic for me. I just think it gives a better look.

    Re: PIMP my PILOT

    Yes the first one is nice but the dent issue bugs me and so the Romik boards are appealing.

    But I can't get any installation info online anywhere...Thats frustrating.

    Got some rivnut tool access, which is cool but thanks for advising. Handa-accessories allow you to rent it for $10 too which is nice. Plus I've found sites where you can make your own.


    So, more opinions......do I go with this one, a bit easier to dent?:


    or this one, built tougher. Do you think this board blends as nicely? These are 2 pics of it on another car.:







    For the rear, I am looking for this:



    But cant find it online anywhere, at this length with the led.



    All opinions and advice are appreciated!

    You can always get the NYCA logo hitch:

    I was going to suggest that. Mario I'd really go with the Honda brand ones. That Vanguard one really looks like ass. I'll have to make fun of you each time i see the truck if you get those. LOL

    Re: PIMP my PILOT

    The Honda OEM ones are of aluminum and dent so much easier. So that is why I am partial to the Romik boards. OTherwise I'd get the Honda boards tonight. Tough call.

    Tom, your confused. DOnt worry ,I wont get a Vanguard front protection bar.

    But talking about running boards, its either the Honda OEM or the Romik. The Romik boards are on that Landover pic and also in the photo above it. They are stainless steel tubes.



    In spite of all that, everyone still agrees though, huh? The Honda OEM looks nicer than the Romiks too?

    Re: PIMP my PILOT

    When you are running around Queens Blvd. looking at speed shops, check the Vanguard bully bar. Some of those plates are bolted on not welded so you can get the bully bar installed without it.

    Re: PIMP my PILOT

    Ordered the HOnda premium OEM ones this morning. Also got the rivnut tool to rent for 10 bucks, so I will install myself.

    Might save me that trip into Queens for the bull bar as Steelcraft makes them.

    But that rear hitch is elusive!
