Acura TL hitch rackThe Acura TL allows for a hitch receiver to be bolted to the underside of the trunk. The hitch requires two holes to be drilled through the bottom of the trunk in order for the hitch to be bolted to the vehicle. Installation is rather simple and can be done in about an hour. With this hitch you can tow a maximum of 2,000 lbs or in this case carry 2 bikes with a tongue weight capacity of 200lbs.

Yakima SkyBox LoPro 15

10 03 2009

The LoPro 15 box from Yakima is their top of the line cargo box. It allows for 15 cubic feet of storage with dimensions of 92″ L x 36″ W x 11.5″ H. It includes an integrated cargo net an pad to secure your gear. Also, the box has a solar powered system to light up the inside once the lid of the box is opened. Locks are included.

Here at Rack Attack we find the low profile design of this Yakima box to be just what those height conscious customers are looking for. Allows medium height SUV’s and crossovers to pull into garages and low overhangs without the fear hearing that dreaded crunch! Another nice feature on the Yakima LoPro 15 is the design of the rear of the box. The upward slope on the rear allows for the complete opening of the rear hatch on most vehicle. The cherry on top is all the accessories it comes with, built in solar light, cargo net, and a protective non-slip pad to keep your goods in place. The Cadillac of cargo boxes.





2008 Toyota Tacoma custom roof rack with ski carrier

7 03 2009

This custom rack can be applied to almost any vehicle, not only the 2008 Toyota Tacoma. It starts with a track system that is permanently installed on the roof. The advantages of the track are that it increases weight capacity and allows the bars to slide forward and back so that they can be positioned with a variety of bar spreads. Then comes a crossbar setup which attaches into the track. This particular one uses Yakima Landing Pad 1’s attaching to the 54″ track. Yakima Control Towers on top of the Landing Pads and 58″ crossbars. The Yakima Fat Cat 6 ski and snowboard rack is then attached to the crossbars. This ski and snowboard rack can carry 4 snowboards or six pairs of skis, even wide boards or skis.
