Here at Rack Attack we take pride in the level of service we can provide due to our extensive product knowledge and installation experience. Our Rack Experts will be able to assist you through your entire rack buying experience. From explaining each option available for your vehicle, Installation services and or Tips for the “do-it-yourself-er”, as well as maintenance and upkeep tips. At our 4 US locations we offer a wide range of installation services which include custom permanent applications on vehicles where other options would either not exist, or would not provide the most flexibility in terms of accessories, highest weight rating, and the widest spread between the front and back cross-bars.
For today’s showcase install we added on to a customer’s previously installed Thule Fiberglass Track System, by adding a Track system onto the cab of his Chevy Colorado, which allows him to now carry longer loads. This system which is a combination between a Thule 430 Tracker II foot pack system and a Thule 42 inch TopTrack with plusnuts that are designed specifically designed to be used on the sheet metal roof of most vehicles.
The best, and most flexible solution, in terms of accessory application, bar spread, and convenience in installation and removal, is a permanently installed set of Thule or Yakima Tracks that will allow the mounting of a 430 Tracker II foot pack system. For this application the customer opted to go with the Yakima 42 inch tracks, which is designed Specifically for Sheet Metal Roofs. Which in turn allows the mounting of most every Thule or Yakima accessory, such as Roof Top Bike carriers, Ski carriers, Water-sport carriers, as well as cargo bags, baskets and Cargo Boxes, and it is removable in seconds.
THIS SYSTEM INCLUDES;
- Thule’s 430 Tracker II Foot Pack
- Thule’s 50 Inch Load Bars
- Thule’s Tk1 Adapter Kit
- Thule’s TP42 42 Inch Top-Track with Flare-Nuts (CLICK HERE to watch a brief Custom Track Installation Video)
- 4 Pack of Thule Lock Cores
- For the system on the Cap the parts are the same but it is Thule’s TB60 Top Track with Bolts that is designed specifically for fiberglass caps.
