Will Rhino Rack Vortex bars fit with Yakima Skyline Towers?


I have Yakima skyline towers and round bar SL adapters that came with my Truck Covers American Roll Cover but the round bars themselves are currently backordered. From a previous set up, I have Rhino Rack Vortex bars. Will I be able to use the Vortex bars with the Skyline set up? The instructions for the Skyline Towers show some kind of adapter to use with their Jetstream bars but I do not have that yet. I believe this adapter is the same as the HD SL adapter kit? Last resort would be to use Rhino Rack T-FK3 Yakima Fit Kit which I believe would work with the Yakima specific track system. Thanks

I have the answer! Unfortunately, the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 will not fit with the Yakima Skyline Towers Y00148. The legs that you need for the Vortex Aero Crossbars are the Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRRLKVA. In addition, you will need the Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs # DK427.

Since you confirmed that you have raised rails (thanks so much for that), I recommend mounting the Yakima Jetstream Bars # Y00425 with the TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails # Y00147. There is no adapter required to use the Jestream bars with the Yakima Towers.
