2012 Mini Countryman Racked Out

13 03 2013

This Mini is set up to carry anything you may need.  We started with a Thule Aeroblade system composed of the 460R Rapid Podium Towers, Fitkit 4020 and a pair of 47″ Aeroblade load bars.  This system attaches to the factory installed flush mounted siderails.  Using the Aeroblade bars we are getting the highest weight capacity and the most aerodynamic option.

     To this base we added a couple of Rocky Mount Euro Pitchforks to carry the bikes.  The Euro Pitchfork mounts flush to the Aeroblade load bars and come in a whole rainbow of colors to match your ride.  The low profile design of this bike rack accommodates any style of bike you have.  If you have Thru-Axles on your fork, Rocky Mounts has you covered with the Driveshaft fork adapter.  Between the bike carriers we added the Yakima LoadWarrior to handle all the other gear you have to take along.  The LoadWarrior also has a ton of accessory options to add to it as well.  You can add the LoadWarrior Extension which will give you 18″ more space, cargo nets to hold everything down.  If you need to attach your Axe, Shovel, Hi-Lift Jack or Spare Tire there are also brackets for that.  Lights and locks are also another great add-on to the basket.

2007 Infiniti QX56 Custom Rack and Box

1 02 2012

This is THE solution for your 2004 – 2007  QX56 with the unusable factory rack sytem. 

  This particular QX56  is a 2008 and was needing a cargo box.  We started by installing a Thule TK14 Footpack kit, Thule 430 Tracker II tower,  a pair of 50″ Load bars nad a 4-pack of Thule Lock Cores

  The 430/TK system has a quick release feature to remove the bars in a matter a minutes once unlocked.  Using this system between the factory racks allows for a narrow enough bar spread that any Thule or Yakima box will attach.  This vehicle has the Thule 688BXT Atlantis 2100 in Gloss Black which provides maximum cargo capacity with great looks and aerodynamics.  Any Thule Ski, bike, or boat accessories can also be mounted easily to this crossbar. 

 

 Another great solution from your local Rack Attack.  Stay tuned for more fun setups.

 

 





2008 GMC ENVOY “Moosehead”

1 02 2012

This 2008 GMC Envoy is setup with the Ultimate kayak system. 

 We started by using the Thule 460 Podium footpack paired with Fitkit 3101 and 65″ Thule Load Bars to attach into the factory siderails on the Envoy. 

 From here we added a Hullavator on each side of the system.  The Hullavator is a load assist kayak rack that will lift the boats from waist height to the top of the vehicle with little effort on the users part. 

The Hullavator is capable of carrying/loading boats up to 36″ wide and 75lbs.  The Hullavator portion is easily removable when not in use as to not interfere with low clearances.  

The base system is also capable of accepting any Thule Ski, Bike or Cargo accessories as well as many Yakima and Inno products.  Just another little creation from Rack Attack

Stay tuned to see what other fun systems we have come up with.





2008 Ford F150 FX4 Crewcab Bed Rack

1 02 2012

This 2008 Ford F150 Crew Cab is outfitted with a custom Yakima Track System and LoadWarrior Cargo Basket. 

This system is installed using  track(201135) mounted to each of the bed rails.  From here we add 2 pair of Landing Pad #1s, a set of Yakima Control towers, and a pair of 66″ Yakima Round load bars.  Using this system will give you a completly adjustable, strong system to carry anything you want while leaving your bed open for storage.  The Control Tower/Landing pad combination does have a quick release feature to pull the bars  and any accessories off the vehicle in a matter of minutes when unlocked. 

 On this particular truck we added a Yakima LoadWarrior basket which will handle any gear you can throw in it.  The LoadWarrior also has a variety of accessories you can add on, from Axe/Shovel brackets and  Hi-Lift Jack mounts, to Spare Tire carriers and Light Mounts.  Any standard Yakima roofrack accessories will also mount onto this as well as many Thule and Inno products. 

 Stay tuned for more fun systems only from your local Rack Attack!!

 





Audi S4 Yakima Quick Release Rack

17 02 2011

Here we have a  2009 Audi S4 getting fitted with a Yakima base rack system. We start with two pair of Landing Pad 7’s. We then mount these directly to the sheet metal. We attach these close to the door frames adding extra hold. These kind of installs typically call for a 28″-31″ inch bar spread. By doing so, this allows you to hold Cargo Boxes, Skis and Snowboards, Bikes, and even kayaks. Before we attach the Landing Pad 7s we First insert a plus nut, allowing the Lp7 hardware to thread into your roof. We also apply silicon preventing water damage and rust.

Next we need  a set of Yakima Control Towers. This is the tower that mounts onto the Landing Pad 7s, the Yakima 48″ cross bars also attach to this tower. The paticular step needs no hardware, just a few simple measuremets to determine the over hang outside of the towers. The Control tower has a quick release feature allowing the user to remove the rack within minutes. This then leaves the mounting hardware still attached to your roof in certain locations. To prevent theft of the rack we highly recommend Four Sks Lock Cores.

Also because the box is in the mid range of sizes (not too long), it provides a great fit for most vehicles with rear hatch openings to raise completely without hitting the cargo box. Great for Subaru Outbacks, Lexus SUV’s, as well as a number of other vehicles. This cargo box has a glossy finish and is available in black or silver.

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.
