Nice Rack

I use this for two Kayaks and sometimes a mountain bike, it works well and looks good. Trying to get the bars even and everything squared up will take awhile, but besides that, it is a great rack.

Complete rack system for sng top shell

Kit was very complete had all the components with the exception of the longer screws. The longer screws were due to the thickness of the shell roof. The only drawback was using Yakima's web site to know to order the application for a Jeep Wrangler. Mounting the rails were about a 6 of a 10 to install due to the measurement.

Great product and looks good too!

After doing quite a bit of research we settled on the Yakima roof rack. Auto Anything Representative was super helpful in assisting us in our choice and it was shipped promptly. Installation was smooth and fairly quick. We took our first road trip and attached our cargo box...15 hours each way and all went well. The rack was everything we needed and faired well during our trip.

Jim

Easy to install once you figure out the actual mechanics involved. It looks good and comes on and off easily. To cautions: 1. measurements on the supplied chart were wrong so you might have to play around with adjustments before getting the spacing correct. 2. The quality is excellent but the price is insane.

Roof Rack for Scion tC

The Yakima Rack System looks good on my Scion tC. Installation of the rack system was easy and the Q towers system mounted securely on the vehicle. Noticeable wind noises when driving on highway speeds.

Installation

Just follow directions, allow yourself twice the amount of time that you originally estimate - this allows you to constantly check dimensions as you adjust to fit- and the installation becomes fairly straight-forward. Excellent directions.

Good rack, some noise

It's a great rack, but when driving it does interact with the wind a bit noisily.

Racks for Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

Racks were easy to assemble and install. I made small black marks in the door jam to facilitate getting them back in the proper position since I don't leave them on all the time. They seem quite secure, but I have not yet tested them on a longer trip on rough roads to see if they loosen up in use.

The Yakima Rack System is a great look for my Kia Soul. I was concerned about wind dynamics, but after installing and a week of driving in town, my MPG has increased!

Yakima rack flew off with paddleboard under wet conditions

This happened on I-95 at 60-65 mph. The rack was properly installed, following instructions step by step and making sure that all the measurements were correct. Also they were tested to make sure they had a strong hold on the car. The vinyl stickers they tell you to put on the metal pieces that hold onto the car are probably what caused the accident. When they get wet, they get slippery and your entire rack becomes unreliable for transporting large items.

On a Plymouth Voyager/ Dodge Caravan

The rack is sturdy, well made and looks good. However it does not install easily, it will only fit on the frames of the side doors and is not easy to fit, the rubber seals must be pulled back. Would have been easier if the instructions said that. It will not be easily removed. The feet also fall off too easily and are bound to get lost when off the vehicle.

Use With 5th Wheel Trailer

I use my Q Tower Base Rack to haul 2 10ft. kayaks while towing my 5th wheel trailer. This has solved my problem of how to bring our kayaks when camping. My Q Tower Base Rack get them there safe and secure.

Q base Racks

Received and installed Q Tower Base Racks on 2009 Chevy Crew Cab 2500. Took most of day with all measurements to get them in position, not far enough back actually but they are where they are. Don't like the fact that they smash down weather stripping on doors leading to inordinate amount of wind noise, installed deflector, not much help but looks cool. Don't like that no load limit listed, had to call retailer to call Yakima. Wanted 3rd center bar and bases, had to order a twosome of bars, can't get just one, too tall to work with roof slope so more bucks wasted. Hard to balance tension side to side for even snap down and hard to lock.
