    Nick,what you have to find out is what tower system is involved....The towers are the parts that actually mount the rack to your vehicle.Yakima systems typically mount one of two ways 1.Attaching to factory racks or 2.Using clips in the doors to fasten to a naked roof.Looking at the pic,I would say that the towers are lowriders,which are designed to attach to factory roof rails.This is the exact system I have on my truck but I have a factory rack which acts as roof rails when stowed.

    Having said this,the other components that are pictured will work,(crossbars,loadWarrior basket).If the price is right,you would just have to sell the Lowriders and replace them with a product called Q Towers and Q clips.

    Hope all this makes sense,check my gallery to see how it looks on the truck.

    Nick,I just checked the Yakima site...http://www.yakima.com/

    Using the "fit my car" option,it calls for Q Towers for your truck.The Towers are generic but it's the clips that are vehicle specific.....So if you bought the second set you showed,you would just have to pick up a set of your trucks clips.The main expense is always the towers and bars,so it looks like a pretty good deal,especially with the fairing included.If it was the LoadWarrior basket you wanted to go with it,you buy both sets,sell the bars and towers included with the first set,and the fairing with the second set and between the two,plus clips,you're golden.
