I'm going to get there "track system" which will let me add as many Yakima load bars as I see fit (3). I'll let you know how it works.
Also, when I called suburban topper this week, they quoted me $110 per side for the windoors.
Seriously? I would be psyched to skip the whole rack thing and just do Yakima bars.. I have bought those tracks before from Rocky Mounts in Boulder. And I think I've got enough towers & bars around.. is that a windoor price because you're buying a new topper and you just choose that window as an upgrade? That would make sense, but both times I've bought a replacement after the fact it was more like $250. I do still want a DS...
I'll do some expo searching.. will bring the truck on Wednesday.
