  1. Calling all DIYers

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    To the OP, thanks for asking. I'm aware that this is more fun for me to write than it will be for anyone to read, so forgive me for taking your post as an invitation to indulge myself. Working on cars (as well as appliances, wiring, plumbing, etc) is an extension of a mindset I...

  3. Roof Rack - another option

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    part 2 of 3 The track is an aluminum extrusion sold as L-Track or Airline Track. It is essentially a T-track with a continuous machined hole pattern to receive repositionable anchors. I found that narrow Yakima landing pads could attach at any point along the rails and would bear only on the...

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    We've had our 2014 Tech about a year. One of the first additions/modifications I made was to add roof cargo carrying capability. I had several criteria: accommodate a 91" long box we already had - Thule Cascade 678XT allow adjustability in crossbar positioning provide additional tie down...

  8. OEM hitch and harness deal

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    For those looking for a new OEM hitch and wiring harness, the combo is available on amazon right now for $376 / free shipping. I haven't been looking for long, but that seems like a good price so I ordered one for our 2014 tech shawd. There appear to be two more available. I can't post links...
  9. New owner north of SF Bay

    New Members Introduction
