Give this forum a start. (y)

Presenting my 2019 Passport Elite in Modern Steel Metallic with Black Leather. Dealer installed modifications/options: splash guards, door edge trim, cargo tray, and pinstripes.

Up first for me is removing the the pinstripes. Roof cross bars are on order as well as the Honda cargo cover and WeatherTech all weather floor mats. Pix to follow once those items are received and installed.

Future modifications:
front side windows tinted
wheels and tires (probably 18")
intake
exhaust
roof basket

As received from the dealership on 03-Mar-2019:

I have always purchased the WeatherTech "Floor Mats" before, but I love the look & fit of the "Floor Liners", yeah they are a little more, but I like the high walls at the sides, it should keep stuff from working its way onto the carpet..

Looks good dude / did u have to pay for the Tran cooler or was it there / can’t imagine it came with it as Honda just loves to ‘nickel and dime’ us so maybe someday if I need to tow more than 3500 lbs 😆

Thanks bro.

Yes, I went all in so I have the option to tow up to 5,000 lbs. The ATF cooler is necessary to have the max available for towing. It was one of the items on the parts list installed by the dealer. Yeah, wasn't inexpensive (at least to me), parts and installation was $2,000 but I will add when I was negotiating my purchase the dealer moved on the trade-in value to get to my price point. They did not move on their hitch install cost. FWIW another dealer quoted me $1,600 for the same components with installation -- but they would not move on their selling price. End of the day I was able to purchase at my price with the hitch components installed. (y) (y) (y)

Ouch, 2k for the hitch. Since I need 5000 towing I’m going to have to wait this out and see if prices drop some more.
Parts are going to run you $800 or more so keep that in mind. What you'll need to shop around is the installation cost.

Received the cargo cover from HondaPartWorld. Also ordered the roof crossbars at the same time. Both said they shipped on the same date but the crossbars are not arriving, per UPS, until 15-Mar-2019. Not sure what happened but not impressed with HondaPartWorld at the moment.

Likewise disappointed with the cargo cover. About a 4" gap between the rear seat and the cover. So much for concealing your cargo.

I'll experiment tomorrow when mine arrives, but are the rear seats all the way back and how big is the gap when the seats are reclined? Still, I am also disappointed because regardless of where the seats are the cargo cover should bridge the gap. That's what I'm used to on my CR-V

They are all the way back in the picture with some recline. Checked it fully reclined and it did not close that gap.

Added the crossbars this evening.

Using the "defined" spots for the crossbars the distance is about 29" (outside to outside). As the crossbars curve, the height off the roof at the rail is about 3.5" and I'd guess it's about 4" from the roof in the middle.
