I'm looking for the better solution (I don't care the price if the solution is good) to upgrade my 2016 Pilot to do off road. The biggest concern with 3rd gen Pilot is ground clearance. I know that I can put bigger tires but, at best, it will only provide 1 more inch clearance. Also, I'm towing a big travel trailer and even if the Ridgeline as the same towing capacity, it performs better than the Pilot at the task.
- Lift kits - cheap solution but can prematurely worn transmission or other parts because it change where forces are applied (is it the same for all other solutions?). It won't help me for towing and could be worst.
- Air suspension - I don't know much about it. My biggest concern is: will it be as much comfortable on normal road then stock suspension. I suspect it's probably the best solution if possible.
- Change suspension parts (maybe a lot) for Passport or Ridgeline one. I don't know if it's possible but I guess so because it's all the same platform.
