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.
