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.
