    Roof rack question

    Anyone know what uprights are needed or if this is even a thule mount?

    Leer cap. Rails. These are mounted into the rails. Would love to be able to use them if I can just get the right uprights.

    IIRC it is the Yak "Landing Pad 1"

    "control towers" are what you need to clip in to those...

    edit: also, can't quite tell from the pics but if those are as old and UV'd-out as they seem, I'd consider new landing pads... if they are cracked and brittle you might lose a load (not in a good way)...

    Thanks for the advice. The trucks a 2006 so I can't imagine they are much older than that. I will check for any signs of cracking but they look pretty solid. Think i found some 58" bars and control towers.

    Is there only one type of "control towers"? It seems I may have found some locally for a good deal.
