where to rack with hardtop on ST
I'm going to keep this thread going, as I'm having some rack related problems....
goal: use Yakima Rocket Box, position further back on vehicle
goal: use Yakima for Surfboard(s)
goal: either with/without bikini/hardtop/softtop
so far, I'm coming up short. I can make the second goal with the xterra tower, with extension. I've attached a pic of the yakima with surfboard using the xterra towers. Not ideal, but it won't go flying off the top when crusing along the highway.
To get the rocket box mounted, it needs to be about 6" longer to line up with the mounts, and needs to be further back on the top of the vehicle so it doesn't lean over the hood (looking silly). I bought a track to mount on top of the hardtop that is 42" long, which is about how long the hardtop is before it starts to curve downward toward the front of the vehicle. I was hoping to mount a single mount to the track and have it line up with the one of the xterra mounts, giving myself some room to manuever it back or forth and get the best wind noise reduction, and looks but it's not even close to the right height. Meanwhile, what do I do when I take off the hardtop.... hummmm....
