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.

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.





2011 Nissan Juke Custom Yakima Rack

8 02 2011

This 2011 Nissan Juke is outfitted with a custom roof rack using components from Yakima.

  We started by determining placement of the rack on the roof of this vehicle.  This will allow for the maximum usability of the rack, as well as making for the most aesthically pleasing rack.  Once the placement was determined, the owner was looking to carry snowboards, we attached 2 pair of  Yakima Landing Pad 7.

 After the Landing Pads are attached we will proceed to mount the remainder of the rack.  This will consist of Yakima Control Towers, 48″ Yakima Load Bars, a Yakima 38″ Fairing, and finally a 4-Pack of Yakima SKS lock cores

The Control Tower/Landing Pad system has many great features, this rack is quickly removable when not in use and a very sturdy option to add more space and storage to the Nissan Juke.  This Yakima system will allow for any of Yakima’s accesories to attach; from bike carriers and cargo boxes to ski carriers and boat racks.





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.

This rack requires some drilling to attach the track to the roof of the vehicle and then the rest of the components are attached on and are removable. This type of install takes about 1-2 hours to install.
