This is a complete Yakima base roof rack on tracks for a custom installation into a fiberglass truck cap camper shell topper. System includes two load bars, four towers, Yakima tracks with mounting hardware, and landing pads as detailed below. Locks are recommended and available separately in match sets, see related products.
The Landing Pads are the interface between the Yakima SkyLine Tower and your tracks. The pads attach to the vehicle and SkyLine Towers secure to the pad sets. Includes snap-on covers for protection when tower is removed.
The Yakima SkyLine Towers offers a quick and secure connection to the landing pads for a worry free rack system. The SkyLine Tower connects and removes to the landing pad by simply opening or closing the tower cover. The tower also features BarBed with pitch adjustment that levels the front and rear crossbar to adapt to the curved styling of modern vehicle roof lines.
Yakima CoreBar load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing increased maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The galvanized steel is rolled formed and vinyl wrapped to enhance durability and increase the corrosion resistance.
The tracks require two people for the installation, plus a power drill, drill bits, and measuring tape is necessary. Review the product manual for full installation details. In general, this installation works great on trucks with level fiberglass camper shells on short 6 foot beds. Trucks with extra short 5 foot beds will require that the 54-inch track are cut down to 48.5 inches.
The weight capacity for this base roof rack is up to 150 pounds evenly distributed (check shell manufacturer for maximum capacities). The load bar length is available in 50 or 60 inch lengths. Full-size pickups generally use a 60 inch load bar and mid-sized trucks use a 50 inch bar.
