Are Yakima HD and Corebar Roof Racks Overkill for 2018 Ford F-150  


I understand the Yakima weight limit is greater for the HD bars. However, I am looking at installing either their HD or core bars on the roof of my 2018 F150 super crew. I’ve looked in the vehicle manual and I can’t find a weight limit for the roof but, I’m assuming if the vehicle mfr weight limit is 165, then the HD bars would be overkill as I would be limited to the weight limit of the core bars anyway. Does this make sense? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I understand exactly what you are asking about. So with anything where there's a weight capacity involved (roof rack, towing, etc.) you are limited by the lowest rated component in the setup as the overall weight capacity.

So if your roof capacity is 165 lbs the CoreBar rack part # Y00422, # Y28TR, and # Y06122 would give you the full capacity plus some and the HD Bar rack part numbers # Y01157, # Y28TR, # Y03541, and # Y06122 would be even more.
