Yakima OverHaul HD

For weekend adventures and hardworking weekdays, the Overhaul HD adjustable truck rack offers best-in-class payload and unmatched versatility. Leveraging our new HD Bars for a 500-lb. on-road carrying capacity, and paired with Yakima’s 300-lb. Off-Road Rating, the OverHaul HD truck rack is the ideal foundation for heavy loads.

The crossbar height can be adjusted to suit your needs: way up, for long loads to go over the cab—or down low, to get the rack out of the wind.

The uprights are easy to take on and off in minutes, so the truck’s only racked-up when needed.

The OverHaul HD truck rack uses any of our HD Crossbar sizes, and accepts our SideBars™ for attaching off-road and utility accessories. Multiple tie-down points and the ability to fit most truck beds—including select tonneau covers—make this an ultra-functional rack that works and plays as hard as you do.

SEMA 2018: Popular Mechanics Editors’ Choice Awards – Yakima & Dometic

From Popular Mechanics by

Car culture is thriving with innovative new products for the pro and weekend mechanic.

Once you get past the smell of burning rubber and the sound of 800-hp Mustangs doing donuts in the parking lot outside the Speed Equipment Manufacturing Association (SEMA) show, you’ll find more than 2,400 exhibitors showcasing the newest add-ons for cars and trucks. Here are ten of our favorite new products we spotted at SEMA 2018. (Note from PRW: click here to see the other 8)

Dometic PLB40 Portable Battery

Want to go camping without really roughing it? The Dometic PLB40 provides clean 12V power to your portable fridge, and unlike the 12V plug in your vehicle, the Dometic will protect you from pesky power drops.

The PLB40 uses a lithium-iron phosphate battery (known as LiFeP04), which comes at a premium but makes the unit lightweight and compact and provides more stable power. With this power source you can keep your CFX or new CFF fridge running all weekend. Available January 2019.

Yakima Truck Rack

There are plenty of pickup bed racks on the market. But the OutPost HD from Yakima might be the easiest to put on and take off.

Simply unlock it and lift it off as a single unit. Stow in your garage with rooftop tent and jerry cans still attached. The aluminum construction delivers a 500-pound on-road carrying capacity and is Yakima Off-Road Rated up to 300 pounds. It hits the market spring 2019 for $470.

SCHOOL OF RACK

LEARN HOW TO RACK YOUR WORLD

The Yakima School of Rack is in session, offering introductory classes to help you choose the roof rack system and mounts that work for you, your gear, and your ride. Each lesson breaks down a rack category and helps you understand the rack possibilities available to enable your next epic adventure.

Why are there different types of bike and kayak racks? What if I like to do a bunch of different things – how do I create a set-up for that? I know I’m supposed to tie down my kayak, but how do I do it right?

Our curriculum has it covered. So, sharpen your pencils, sit up straight, find your class, and take notes. Then rack up for recess!

ROOF RACKS 101

BUILDING YOUR FOUNDATION

A multi-sport rack system is all about that base, and that base is your roof rack. But what fits your vehicle’s roof? What kind of roof do you even have? Which bars and towers do you need? In this School of Rack session, we guide you to the perfect system for your vehicle.
