Surco Safari Rack for 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport

 

Customer Question: I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I am interested in the Surco Safari Rack 45 inch x 50 inch, 5 inch Stanchion. Will I need adapters to attach this to my existing factory roof rails?

Rack for 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon

Fit Question:


I am interested in purchasing the Surco Jeep Hard Top Adapter 2007 – current JK. I am wanting to secure a Thule box to the top of my vehicle and understand that in addition to this adapter I will also need to attach roof crossbars. Could you please recommend which crossbar would be appropriate for a 2 door 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon with hard top. Also, is it necessary to also purchase a Thule adapter to fit to this setup in order to attach the Thule box?

Racks for All Recommendation:

You would need these items to complete the rack:
48 Inch Safari Crossbars
Jeep Hard Top Adapter
The Surco Thule Adapter should not be needed - the Thule boxes all have adjustable mounts that will fit.

We are looking for cross bars and a cargo box for our Q7. I have no idea what to buy or where to even begin. The Q7 has flush siderails on the roof that came from the factory. Can you help?

Yakima has a custom fit for your Audi Q7's flush siderails:

Railgrab Kit (QTY 1)
Rocketbox Pro 14 cu ft Cargo Box (QTY 1)
Lock set for base racks (QTY 1)

Please note that the fairing is optional but cuts down on wind noise. Locks are also optional but a good idea. This setup is easy to self-install.

Canoe Carrier for 2010 Mercury Milan

Fit Request:
I have a 2010 Mercury Milan that I am trying to find a good canoe carrier for. I need to make sure the entire vehicle is protected. I have a fiberglass and also a cedar strip wood canoe.I used your van system for hauling but now need one for the car. Hauling one canoe at a time.

Racks for All Recommendation:

 The Yakima Universal Canoe Carrier will fit your vehicle nicely.

I would also recommend the Malone Canoe Kit as well.

We can also build you a base rack for your Milan that will run about $200 plus a fancier canoe carrier for around $80-$100 if you wish. The foam solution is fine for around town, but not really fine for long distance use.

Customer Question:


I was looking for a rail system for my 2012 Audi Q7.  It has factory rails but not cross bars.  I was looking at your Yakima 8000140 Rail Grab Kit.
 
Will this work on my vehicle and does it have the crossbars included?  If so, what lengths of crossbars are in the kit?
