I though I would love the core bar set up on my truck but I have really grown to love them! Weather it’s bikes, kayaks or a ladder it works great! And even better it looks great! Quieter than Thule square bars and Yakima round bars by far. I would not only buy again but one of the bars was damaged in shipment and etrailer took care of it by sending a new one to replace it right away. Will be buying from them again! Good customer service!!!!

Not a good fit

If you are not confident with the rack I can see if there is a better fitting roof rack for your 2013 F-150. Do you have a Regular, Super, or SuperCrew Cab?

Thanks for reaching out. I already purchased what I needed to mount it directly on the roof. Much happier with this solution.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


I have a 10th gen Civic sedan and I was dying to get the perfect roof rack set for my car. At the time of my purchase there was not many visuals of what the rack system looked like on this car.

I purchased the:

•Yakima 50in Jetstream crossbars
•Yakima baseline towers
•bc182 & bc183 clips
•Yakima 46in fairing

Overall I love how it looks on my car! During This COVID pandemic I have been camping more, and this is the perfect foundation! First off, the 46in fairing is the perfect fit for the 10th gen civic! Wind noise is low also with the help of the aerodynamic crossbars. My main concern was the fuel efficiency. On long road trips I still average 38-40 mpg with the rack on. My daily commutes I average 34 mpg without Econ on.

Everything was perfect and relatively easy to setup. Ì bought from etrailer due to the actual manufacturer being out of stock, I was skeptical when I ordered but very glad I did. Would 100% recommend etrailer.

Overall these are a great product and much needed. I had a Tiguan with the side rails but needed cross rails for my gear. When I got my Jetta I wanted to keep my Yakima cross rails so I needed the Towers. They work great and fit my car well. I took them off recently after having them on for a year for re-fitment.

These are great, and it is so nice to get a custom base clips that match the angles and contour of the sides of your roof. Makes it look very clean. These are made very well and for sure these will last a long time like my other Yakima products.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


I ordered the Yakima "aero" bars , baseline towers, and BaseClip kits for my 2019 Honda Civic 5 door. While expensive the quality is excellent and it was a pleasure to assemble such a high quality and precision engineered product. It fits perfectly on my new car and the "aero" bars are quiet even at freeway speeds. Highly recommended.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


Hyundai Sonata - glass pano roof. These items have been on for about 1-year. So happy with the set up. I’ve take a road bike and a mountain bike on 500+ mile trips. The mounts do an excellent job.


Comments
2-years into owning my system: I have had the rack on the vehicle for 2-years and never removed it. Every 3-4 months i check the performance of the base clips and they have never come lose. I think best practice is to always check the stability of the rack however i have never had a problem and the system has always stayed tight and firm. Its been a great system for the vehicle.

The installation was super easy, and despite a long time stuck in shipping the delivery itself was extremely fast, and the package arrived in spotless condition. The manuals were very easy to follow, and the end result is absolutely amazing. They provided a nice, flush finish and hold the racks down tight.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


I bought a set of baseline towers and a jet stream crossbar and mounted them on the roof of my 2018 Tacoma. I have another crossbar on the back of my truck cap. This set up is perfect for carrying long items like my canoe. James at etrailer was extremely helpful in helping with the necessary parts for this configuration.


Comments
My Yakima rack set up continues to be a great solution for carrying my canoe on my Tacoma. Extremely solid and has caused no discoloration on my roof. I take the rack off for the winter months. It was takes me no more than 5min to take the crossbar off or put it back on my truck. Terrific product!

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


Have had base clips come loose twice almost loosing our Kayaks. Have moved them back a little to see if this helps reduce wind upward pressure on front of kayaks.


Comments
With large kayaks it is recommended to tie down the front and rear to prevent wind from pushing your kayak up. If you do not have a tie down point in the front of your vehicle you can try the Malone Hood loops Item # MPG308. Then just add a heavy duty ratchet strap like Item # IMF14206.

They really didn't stay in place, and I ended up riveting them to the car so they would stay on the car.


Comments
This should be a snug fit. Be sure that the included tool clicks when torqueing down so that you know it is tight. See more tips in this attached install video:

I have a 2004 Toyota Camry, my purpose is to purchase this Yakima Baseline System for Rooftop tent. My 23Zero rooftop tent weighs 130 lb, so far it's super solid. I did some minor adjustments based on the shape and level of the roof when mounting it.

  • Can Four Bike Racks fit Yakima Roof Rack on 2013 Ford F-150 Super Crew Cab?

    To install your existing Yakima JetStream Crossbars like the 60" # Y00426 (which is the length recommended for your truck) on your 2012 Ford F-150 SuperCrew you will need the BaseLine Towers # Y00146 and the BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06168.

  • Roof Rack for 2011 Ford F-150 to Carry Two Thule Hullavator Kayak Carriers
    Since the max crossbar width the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 can take up is 28-1/2 inches for a roof rack that fits your 2011 Ford F-150 that would work great is the 60 inch bar width Yakima Jetstream roof rack part numbers # Y00426, # Y00146, and # Y06168 which the Hullavator can fit into the top channels of and would easily accommodate both racks. This will install on the roof of the truck though. If you'd prefer a solution for the cap let me know.

  • Can Longer Crossbars Be Added To Rhino-Rack Roof Rack On 2014 Ford F150?

You can upgrade to longer crossbars as long as they do not extend past your mirrors.
