    Roof rack options for Nissan Frontier

    I've got a '06 Nissan frontier crew cab, with a factory rack. I've put a lift kit and some taller tires on the truck so to get in and out of the garage and parkades won't happen if I install what is recommended by either yakima or thule to haul my bikes. I have two yakima viper bike mounts. Anybody try or know how to install them directly to the stock rails? Or any other options for a roof rack system out their for this truck? Thought I'd ask before I start drilling holes and screw things up.

    Buy some 3/8" spring nuts from the plumbing department of a hardware store and stick them in the tracks. Then just screw a simple fork block from Yak or Thule or whatever into the sprin g nuts.

    just go ahead & drill holes in the roof like i did :)

    I used thule tracks, you need to drill 10 holes in the roof and use plus nuts provided from thule , no need to remove headliner either[ATTACH][ATTACH]Roof rack options for Nissan Frontier-12143_1195995458323_1181557341_30500447_6075603_n.jpg[/ATTACH][/ATTACH]
