Custom Rack Install, Thule or Yakima

Custom Roof Rack

Custom Track Roof Rack, bars can slide

Here are a couple of examples of  custom roof racks with some permanently mounted parts. These racks can be found at rackattack.com by clicking base racks and then permanent base racks after choosing your brand preference (Thule or Yakima).

These racks are attached by drilling holes in the roof of either your sheet metal roof or fiberglass (topper). A track can be installed by being bolted through the drilled holes(picture 1). Another option (picture 2) is to go without the track and permanently mount small base pieces for the racks cross bars to attach onto.
With the track style rack you can mount the tracks to either surface, sheet metal (requires plusnuts/flarenut hardware) or fiberglass (requires bolt through hardware). The tracks are also available in a variety of lengths so you can choose the best fit after measuring the length of your roof.
With tracks, keeping them parallel when possible will make bar adjustments easier. Keeping permanently mounted parts more near the outsides of the roof would usually be a stronger position. Always make sure you have proper placement from inside the topper as well on fiberglass installs.
With Landing Pads from Yakima or TK’s from Thule (permanent position) always do your best to keep bars as level as possible with around a 30″ barspread if possible. Cross bar position considerations are, keep in mind hatches on vehicles whick open up may be constricted if the bars are too far back on the roof.  Your tower widths matching up will make it possible for either of the bars to trade places when re-attaching them. As opposed to the front bar only fits the front position. When drilling it is recommended that you use a stopper on the drill bit to keep you from drilling deeper than 3/4″. This will keep you from drilling into your headliner. once and a while when drilling a sheet metal roof you will encounter a brace just below the sheet metal after drilling through. You usually need to drill through the brace as well, keeping in mind to still not drill deeper than 3/4″. Sometimes the brace can be pushed aside instead. Flush holes after drilling will always make for a cleaner looking install.




Thule Atlantis 1600xt Cargo Box

15 04 2009

The Thule Atlantis 1600xt Cargo box is one of the most versatile roof top cargo boxes we offer here at Rack Attack. It allows for skis/snowboards up to 185cm to fit inside as well as having plenty of width and height to allow for suitcases, golf bags, etc.. 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. It includes locks, universal attachment hardware, and opens from both the drivers or passengers side of the vehicle.





Thule Lock Cores

31 03 2009

Thule lock cores can be added to most thule rack accessories as well as the crossbar towers. They can be purchased in any amount desired and can be matched up so one key can operate the entire system. Locks on the crossbar towers will lock the bars and towers to your vehicle. Using locks on roof top bike racks will lock the bike rack to the car as well as lock your bike to the rack. Rackattack.com
