Roof Rack

We can't post commercial links here, but put www and .com around these three words and you will have some choices. Thule, Yakima, Barrecrafters. Each website has a vehicle fitting tool.

KF I have a 97 Explorer and used the Thule kit that goes right into the factory track, I am very satisfied. I just removed the Ford crossbars. Some of the companies make a kit to fit your existing crossbars but I find the rack companies bars are usually stronger. Ilucked out and posted on some of the kayak fishing boards that I was looking and a guy had one sitting in his garage. icon14.gif

"Thanks westhaven. I went with the swedes. So far so good. "

I don't think you can go wrong with the Swedes. I have a set of bars w/locks that is over twenty years old and they are still going. I have set ups for bikes, skis, yak and a cargo rack, very easy to change set ups. Have used just bars to haul plywood sheets more than once. smile.gif

No I don't sell them nor have stock in the company. I am sure both are equally great.

Do you want round bars or flat bars and what do you want to invest. hammer-time.gif

Roof racks maybe like choices of electronic trains: Lionel or American Flyer. My first set of roof racks were Quick-n- easy. You bolted a 2x4 for a cross beam- bombproof. But you need a roof gutter. Next I got Thule because I liked the name and what it meant and got them used at half price. I'm sure Yak..., etc are also fine. Don't worry.

I got my yakima rack on ebay and saved $140. Plus even though I have one yak I got 2 sets of landshark saddles and a pair of hull raisers. So technically I saved almost $200.
