Say Goodbye To Hotels With Overland Honda Passport And Ridgeline Projects

The Honda Passport and Ridgeline Adventure Lifestyle Projects highlight the company’s presence at the 2019 Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona.

The two exhibits showcase the off-road capabilities of the light trucks as well as how easy it is to turn them into overland vehicles using accessories that are already on sale.

Developed with Jsport, the Honda Passport Adventure Lifestyle Project is fitted with a lift kit adding 1.5 inches of ride height at the front and 0.75 inches at the rear, a new front skid plate, as well as Jsport KMC XD 18-inch wheels shod with Nitto RidgeGrappler off-road tires.

The overlanding part includes a Jsport Plateau modular roof rack with a Roofnest Sandpiper rooftop tent on top. The SUV also gains Jsport side steps for easier access to the roof rack, Jsport external swinging spare tire holder and a revised front bumper. Rounding off the modifications are the front and rear external lighting solutions from Baja Designs.

Already revealed at the 2018 SEMA Show, the Honda Ridgeline Adventure Lifestyle Project features similar upgrades from Jsport including the additional skid plates, a leveling kit, and off-road wheels and tires. The Jsport sidesteps provide easier access to the new Plateau roof rack system, while the Mesa bed rack enhances cargo flexibility.

Mounted atop the roof rack are a tent and a quiet Honda EU2200i generator that can power almost any electrical accessories needed in overland excursions. All the Jsport mods for the 2019 Ridgeline are on sale now.

Besides the modified Passport and Ridgeline, Honda will showcase its entire family of off-road products at the 2019 Overland Expo West, including an array power sports and power equipment products. Those include the 2019 Honda Talon ATVs as well as the 2019 Africa Twin Adventure Sports, 2019 Honda CRF250L Rally, and 2019 Honda CRF450L motorcycles.

    “Say Goodbye To Hotels” is a little extreme. Does it have running water, a toilet, a shower, wi-fi?

      Does it have running water
      It will if you leave the flaps open in the rain.

      I’d be okay with a portal potty and a couple jugs of fresh water. But I do require a shower every couple days. I’d probably stay in parks with showers, but there’s a shower system overland people use that includes a long black tube that gets hot in the sun and a gravity feed shower. Or just get a small camper.
