Mounting Issue

  • Gender: Male

Heads up...this fairing only mounts to round crossbars. It's a small detail I overlooked, but since all the roof racks are universal I just assumed the fairing would be too. When I emailed Yakima for a suggestion, their customer service rep "captain obvious" told me they only mount to yakima round crossbars...thanks for clearing that up! but I need solutions, not facts.

James,

This is a huge pain, as I found out as well. What I did was modify the clips to work on my 4Runner. I cut the rouded portion of the clips, then used mighty mounts to attach to my front factory cross bar. Works like a champ! I didn't use any special tools really. Just a hack saw and some patience. Hope this helps!

Interesting solution. I searched "mighty mounts". Only found mounts from Yakima and picture frame mounting company. Which ones did you use?
