This multi-purpose base roof rack contains the required components for custom installation into a sheet metal roof. The system includes two Thule WingBar Evo load bars, four Thule Rapid Podium feet, a Thule Podium fit kit, and two Thule sheet metal tracks.
Locks are recommended and available separately in match sets.
Thule SquareBars are strong, corrosion-resistant steel bars with a black polymer coating. These load bars offer utility, functionality, and value for those not sensitive to wind noise. Thule fit engineers have predetermined the optimum bar length for this vehicle.
The Thule 460R Rapid Podium Foot provides the strongest hold, safest fit and has fewer parts than other racks for the easiest installation.
The Thule Fit Kit is engineered to make a strong attachment and a smooth transition from the Thule track to the Podium Foot. The kit contains metal brackets, panels, fasteners, and rubber gaskets as illustrated and detailed in the product manual.
The tracks create a permanent, adjustable mounting point for Thule Podium feet. These tracks require drilling and some mechanical skills/knowledge.
A power drill, drill bits, and measuring tape are necessary. Review the product manual for full installation details.
In general, this installation works great on trucks with fiberglass camper shells that are level.
