I mounted these rails in a non-traditional manner (on top of my truck bed caps so that I could crossbars that spanned over my existing tonneau cover). No one I talked with had actually done this type of installation before. The only problems I ran into were: 1) I had to cut the rails approximately 1/2 inch to ensure the through-bolts did not interfere with existing cap hardware, and; 2) The "Nyloc Nuts" were too wide to use so I just substituted a nut, lock washer and flat washer to compensate. Other than that, the installation took a while but came out great. And the RRRL T600 feet work perfectly with the rails. See the attached photo for the complete installation (with bikes attached) and a second photo with the rack removed by using the quick release feet. 595125

The price is right, and the product appears generally well-engineered. I'd be reluctant to label it as "heavy duty" however (as Rhino does), since they are made of extruded aluminum, and each tower is mounted by just two small square washers gripping the rails. Although the mounting hardware itself is sturdy stainless steel, I question the sturdiness of the rails themselves under a heavy load. Unfortunately, the competition likewise only makes aluminum rails, so the industry as a whole appears to have a very different concept of sturdy than I do. (I could have sworn they are described as steel when I ordered them, but I may be wrong about that). 152193

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


Excellent design and manufacturing quality. Etrailer has installation videos on youtube. Modern fiberglas truck beds and matching caps taper toward tailgate (for rearward visibility) which means the rail/crossbar will be a trapezoid instead of a rectangle. The butyl patches are messy but effective, better to place on T-bolts and mold below o-ring instead of placing on holes in cap. The M6 T-bolt protudes past knobnut inside cap enough to thread on eyenuts for hanging cargo hammock and whatever. Was pricey to get 71” rails with 59” crossbars, had to order separately, not sure why the price penalty since all parts pull from Colorado under different skus anyway. 649275

Rhino-Rack Rails work great. Put them on a truck topper to work with a Rhino Rack cross rails system. Easy to install and they are secure. You will need to apply extra silicone or caulk when drilling holes through the topper as the rubber washers on the bolts don't quite stop all leaks. Don't forget that fiberglass truck toppers need to be reinforced to support extra weight. 629271

Review from a similar RTC in Roof Rack


I installed the Rhino rails, and really like them. The install was easy, and the rail are low profile, and have almost no wind resistance. The instructions that came with them are for a Jeep TJ, but I have a JK, and didn't notice until I started drilling and hit a metal cross member. They work fine on a JK, but make your own measurements so the holes don't go into cross members. I also had to temporarily lower the speaker bar so I could put the hold-down nuts on. 518094

Ask the Experts about this Rhino Rack Roof Rack

  • Can Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Be Cut to Size
    It is possible to cut the Rhino-Rack crossbars but I do not recommend this as it will certainly void the warranty. Since we offer Rhino-Rack's Vortex Aero bars in various lengths you can simply choose the individual parts you prefer to make up your rack in the dimensions you prefer. Since you want to end up with bars that are about 44-inches long I suggest part # RRVA118S-2. This is a set of silver Vortex Aero bars that come in that 44-inch size. With these you can use the 63-inch tracks...

  • Parts Needed to Add Roof Rack with Tracks to Camper Shell On Truck
    The tracks part # RTC14 can install on the top of a camper shell to add a roof rack to it. For feet you would want part # RLT500 for a quantity of 2 feet, then for 71 inch long HD Crossbars part # RB1800S for each bar.

  • Compatibility of Thule Roof Rack Feet on Rhino-Rack Tracks
    The Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RTC14 have an inside t-slot dimension of 0.86 inches wide by 0.19 inches tall. I've attached a photo to assist. The Thule tracks are roughly the same size so we know discontinued Thule Tracker II feet will fit these tracks with the track mounting hardware. We also know the podium feet # TH460R will fit when using the fit kit # THKIT3101. If you want to upgrade the bars as well then you can use the Thule ProBar Crossbars - Aluminum - 79" Long...

  • Can Rhino-Rack RTC Roof Rack Tracks be Cut to a Certain Length
    You could trim the Rhino-Rack roof rack tracks # RTC14 if you needed or wanted to. Just make sure that the cuts are perfectly straight up and down so the end caps will fit properly. Rhino-Rack does offer the tracks in other lengths. The shortest set is # RTC8JW at 31-1/2 inches long. If you need a specific size I can check to see if we have an exact match. The tracks are compatible with Rhino-Rack RLTP legs # RLTP, RLCP legs, # RLT500, and RLTF legs, # RLTF.

  • Do Rhino Rack Vortex Crossbars Have an Upward Curvature?
    The Rhino-Rack Vortex Bars are slightly bowed in the longer bar options to help support the weight when applied to the center of the bar. Most manufacturers have this as a part of the aero bar design. If you want a more straight bar, then you will want to instead use the heavy duty bars like # Y01-120B-NT for the track system or # RB1375B-2 for just the crossbars. There are longer bars like # RB1500B-2 and # RB1650B-2 if desired.

  • Sturdy Roof Rack Recommendation for 2008 Chevy Cobalt
    For a vehicle like your 2008 Chevy Cobalt I would not want to recommend a track style of rack as the best option. The tracks aren't going to flex enough to fit well and the clamp style racks are much sturdier than one might think so even though that's not the option you listed wanting it would be your overall best option still. Rhino Rack does offer a heavy duty roof rack that fits your vehicle with the # RB1250, # RRRLKHD, and # DK181 if you have a sedan or part # DK182 for a coupe...

    For your Undercover SE Tonneau cover on your 2019 Chevy Colorado you can use the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount - Black - 59" Long # Y02-490B will work by simply trimming the tracks as you mentioned.

  • Rhino Track Mount Roof Rack for 5' Long Cap on a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 6-1/2' Bed
    The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System # Y02-480B is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 6-1/2' bed as well as the 8' 1500. The reason it fits both is because the track itself can be cut to length for your specific application. You just need to make sure that the cut is perfectly straight so that it is easier to use the track and the caps fit. If you would rather not cut the track you can just make your own kit with the 54" Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA137B-2. the Quick Mount Legs #...

  • How to Install the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack on a Truck Cap
    I do have an option for you but there would be no way to attach a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack like part # RR42108BF to the roof rack you have on your truck cap. The crossbars are not in the correct location spread wise and the internal channels are different. The only way to attach this Pioneer rack to your truck cap would be to remove the crossbars you have now and install a Rhino-Rack Track System which is composed of part # RTC14, part # RLTF (2), and part # RB1375S (2).

    The 63 inch Rhino Rack RTC Style Roof Rack Tracks, # RTC16, come with 8 T-bolts for each track, 16 total, and each T-bolt measures 1 inch long. Although manufacturers typically do not recommend using another company's towers on their track, I went to our warehouse and pulled a set of the RT Style Rhino Roof Tracks and the Yakima Landing Pad1, #Y00221 to perform a test fit to ensure compatibility.

  • Can Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks Install at an Angle?
    The Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RTC14 do need to lay flat. There cannot be an angle because that would cause an undue amount of stress on your camper shell, the tracks, and the legs. To safely and effectively use the rack you are going to need to do it so the tracks are laid down flat or they could very easily snap off or come apart because they'll be constantly flexed.

If you don't want to cut them, I recommend to use either a 55" Long track # RTC14 or 47-1/4" Long # RTC12JW. To use longer cross bars with the shorter tracks, you will need Rhino-Rack Quick Mount Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - RTC and RT Roof Rack Tracks...
