I have been using Yakima products for years. Great quality. Wanted to build a specialty rack without dismantling my other racks.

Purchased four of these to replace some Qtowers. So far my only regret is I did not attach to the camper shell from the beginning. Had some slippage issues with Qclips I was using on the access cab of a ‘15 Tacoma. Disappointing experience after using Qclips on numerous vehicles over the years. Hoping these control towers stand the test of time. Purchased Landing Pads #6 for attaching to shell. 544631

Needs instructions for moving the lock to the new tower. The item was exactly as described and what I needed, a replacement for ome that got broken, and it was a perfect fit. Once I figured out how to take the lock out of the old one and put it in the new one (thanks youtube!) it was an easy installation. I would recommend including a simple sheet of paper on how to move the locks: 1. unlock the old control tower. 2. insert the control key (looks like an uncut blank) that came with the original rack set/equipment and with a little jiggle the lock core will pop out. 3. insert the lock core into the new tower and then remove the control key. 424928

    We have the Swagman Roamer LT part # S80510 which would work great on your pop up. This was designed for pop up applications like yours and the crossbars are 84-5/16 inches in length. I attached an install video for this on a similar truck camper shell for you to check out as well.

  • Can Roof Rack Tracks be Installed on A.R.E. Truck Cap
    Tracks can absolutely be installed on the roof of your A.R.E. Truck Cap to provide a mounting system for a roof rack.

These tracks are specifically designed for camper shells or truck caps like yours. To complete the setup you will just need the Landing Pad 1 # Y00221 (for which you will need a quantity of 2), 4 of the Yakima Control Tower part # Y8890027, and a set...

  • Yakima Camper Shell Roof Rack Parts for Factory Rails on Snug Top Shell
    Yakima does not produce any square bar roof racks so there is no rack foot part to allow installation of square Thule crossbars to a Yakima track. However we do offer the Yakima Control Towers # Y8890027 (you need 4) and Landing Pad 1 # Y00221 (you need 2) that will allow you to install Yakima round crossbars. Yakima round bars are available in many lengths. 58-inch # Y00409 66-inch # Y00410 78-inch # Y00411

    If the A.R.E. cap on your Ram 2500 features the factory tracks, we do indeed have a roof rack system available that will attach directly to them without the need to drill any holes into the cap. You will need 4 of the Yakima Control Towers # Y8890027 and 2 sets of the Yakima Landing Pad 1 # Y00221.

If there is a space between them you wouldn't want to install just the two tracks per side as that wouldn't be fully secure. As for the rivets showing, they won't specifically, but the CapNuts in the hardware would show because you need to drill through...

Then from there you will need 4 of the Control Towers # Y8890027. Then it is just a matter of selecting the crossbar length you are wanting.

  • Will Installing Track Roof Rack System on A.R.E. Topper Void Warranty
    Installing a track system roof rack like the Yakima parts # Y01126, # Y00221, # Y8890027, and # Y00410 won't void the warranty for your pickup but from what I could find it looks like modifying your A.R.E. topper will void that warranty. Since we aren't an A.R.E. dealer I can't really confirm this, but from my research it is very likely that your warranty will be void. So you can have the track system professionally installed but that would be your choice whether you want to pursue this...
