Thanks for all the positive compliments. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Probably going to put my rear hatch back on tomorrow. Had to stop & watch the LLWC today. Tim A was a big help as I used his setup as a reference for mine. Thanks Tim!

did you find the rails on craigslist as well or did you buy them new? I have been looking for the cheapest place to get the rails and hardware. Install looks great, I will be doing mine at some point in time. Just need to score a deal on craigslist for the towers/bars. I am going with Yakima as well since I already got some bike racks.

Great job! Quality work! I bought my snugtop with complete yakima system and yours looks just as nice (if not BETTER) !

I bought the tracks new from a local company that had them in stock. Part # is 8001135 60" tracks w/hardware. They were pretty expensive...$107/pair. I liked this better then making them stationary. The rack itself was a slap together set from ebay/craigslist/local company. Same pt #'s somebody had put together earlier in this post. I was going to do a Thule system, but got an awesome deal on the yakima stuff.

Awesome job! I may have to do it myself now too, if I can find some used components.

So the control tower landing pad needs to be #1, but what about the older (re: cheaper) rail riders? Still Number one? Appreciate any help. Thanks!

CCM, not quite sure which part you are asking about, been awhile since I messed with it.
