    If you install a front rail you can use the same products that 2nd gens do.

    And you can use a 2nd gen front rail.

    Guess it depends on what you are driving on. If you are concerned, seems a simple bungee around the wheel to the rear D ring would suffice. 3rd gens do have floor mounted D rings, right? (I don't know)

    I don't even bother with the fork mounts. I just strap the bike down in the front. 95% pavement though, along with mild unimproved road use. No problems at interstate speeds or the unpaved road.

    If I had to 4wheel to get to a trail head, I'd first need 4wd, then I'd use a more secure system like you are considering. :D

    I haven't had any issues, on long road trips I'll loop a small bungee off the D-ring around the back tire for peace of mind.

    Rail with rocky mounts. Bouncing has never been an issue. Cargo gate keeps wheels and gear secure. 20170604_154618.jpg 20170604_155318.jpg 20170604_155328.jpg
