Does Rhino-Rack Track Mounted Roof Rack Have Everything Needed For Installation

Question:

Will the Rhino Rack Y02-480B contain everything I need to mount a hardtop tent on top of the hard tonneau cover OEM on our 2008 Ford Sport Trac? The cover is hinged in the middle. I plan to cut the tracks and use these shortened lengths on each half of the tonneau cover for a total. This will give me 2 rails on the front half and 2 rails on the rear half, each with a crossbar installed. Minimum crossbar spacing for the RoofNest Condor RoofNest recommended you folks is 30. Im planning to go 40 or so. Tonneau is 53-1/2 inches long and 52 inches wide. The rails would be mounted near the edge of the tonneau so most of the weight will be transferred directly to the edges of the bed. The tonneau is not your typical fiberglass cover. Its a composite that weighs 70lbs. I can stand on the center of it Im 200lbs+ and it doesnt give at all. Do you carry extra ends for the Rhino Rack tracks? Ill need 4 to cover the ends that Ill cut. Thanks for your help!

Expert Reply:

Everything is indeed included with the Rhino-Rack system with tracks so you can mount it on your hard tonneau cover:

- Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack for Camper Shells - Track Mount # Y02-480B

The one thing I do highly recommend is to contact the manufacturer of the tonneau though in order to ensure its weight capacity, as we want you to be safe!

The only thing not available are replacement end caps for the tracks. Otherwise, I have gone ahead and linked the installation instructions below for this roof rack if you'd like to take a look.
