How to Install a Rooftop Ski Rack


Steps for How to Install a Rooftop Ski Rack

  1. Before mounting, decide where you’d like your ski rack to be positioned along your base rack system. You can choose to install it symmetrically in the center of your vehicle or closer to one side for easier access.
  2. Snap the plastic mounts onto your crossbar in the desired locations. Start from the rear and work forward. The mounts are flexible and should snap into place easily.
  3. Set the rack on top of these mounts and adjust so that the hole in the mounts lines up with the hole in the rack. Slide the provided bolts through the holes, back-to-front. Once you reach the head of the bolt, be sure the square lines up properly.
  4. Open the ski rack to thread the wingnut. NOTE: The ski rack must be open for this because the top half of the rack acts as the lock for the wingnut.
  5. Close the rack and repeat the above steps for the second bar, making sure that the two racks line up.

My 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road Access Cab 4x4 offers bed space to camp in, haul my dirt bike around, and it's been done up to take on the trails. Favorite mods include my Icon coilovers to soak up the bumps. My Walker Evans 501 Legend wheels wrapped in Toyo RT tires give me the clearance from my upper control arms to fit (and they look darn good) and the over-sized tires take on rocks with plenty of traction. My Rigid Industries fog lights have kept me out of a ditch or two when night wheeling. Growing up going to car shows and helping my dad work on the family vehicles ignited my passion. My best memory was the first time I flushed the coolant. My dad forgot to tell me to keep my face out from under the drain plug. Never made that mistake again!
