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.

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.

2012 Infiniti M37X Custom Thule Rack

2 04 2011

This 2012 Infiniti M37X is outfitted with a custom installed Thule roof rack.    We began with the Thule TK14 footpacks which were mounted to the sheetmetal of the roof.  From here we added the430R Rapid Aero Tracker Foot with a pair of 47″ rapid aero bars.

The Rapid Aero bars are constructed of aluminum for better corrosion resistance as well as providing a more visually appealing rack.  To finish the base rack system we added the THule 872XT Wind Fairing as well as the  Thule 544 4-pack of locks cores for security.

Once the base system was installed we added a Thule FlatTop 4 ski/snowboard carrier.  This was mounted using one of Rack Attack’s methods which will allow for  accessories to be mounted flush to the bar, again providing the cleanest look possible.

This system, along with the ski carrier, has the ability to accept bike carries, cargo carriers, and watersport carriers





VW GTI Custom Thule Roof Rack

12 02 2011

This 2008 Volkswagen GTI 3-door is outfitted with a custom track system using Thule components.  We started by attaching  a Thule 54″ Track running front to back on the roof, we went as far to the sides as possible to make for a stonger system. 

After installing the track on the roof, we inserted the TK1 Tracker Footpack.  This will be the base in which  tower will install to.  We adjusted the TK1 to provide us with a 31″ bar spread to accomodate skis and snowboards.  We also centered them in the track to make for level bars.  After the TK1 is tightened we proceeded to attach the 430 Tracker II towers to a pair of LB50 50″ Thule load bars and mount on the previously installed TK1s.  

Next we added the 91726 Universal Pull Top ski carrier to accomadate 6 pair of skis or 4 snowboards.  For the final step we added the 544 4-pack of  Thule lock cores to make the whole system secure.

  The finished product is a very stong and versatile system to carry any load you need to.  The tracks will provide a higher weight limit as well as allowing to adjust your bars front to back for various accessories and loads.   This will also allow for  bike carriers, cargo boxes, and boat carriers.





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.
