Can Yakima Core Bars fit Thule Tracks on 2016 Toyota Tacoma Leer Cap?


I have a Leer cap with Thule rails installed. I like the Yakima CoreBars because they are steel and have seen the aluminum Thule Aerobars dent easily. Will the Thule rails on my cap fit Yakima Towers? If so what would I need.

I spoke with a representative of Yakima who informed me that a Yakima rack with CoreBars is compatible with the Thule tracks on the Leer cap of your 2016 Toyota Tacoma.

To install the rack, you would need the following parts:

Two of the Landing Pad 1 for Yakima Control Towers # Y00221
SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y00148

The Yakima CoreBars you need would depend on the width of your Leer cap; your options are Yakima CoreBar Crossbars 50" Long # Y00421

Yakima CoreBar Crossbars 60" Long # Y00422

Yakima CoreBar Crossbars 70" Long # Y00423

Yakima CoreBar Crossbars 80" Long # Y00424

I also highly recommend using the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07204 in order to protect your investment. These cores fit into the SkyLine Towers and will lock the rack to your Leer truck cap.

I've added links to video reviews of these parts for you to take a look at as well.
