Customer Install Photos of 2017 Ford Explorer Roof Rack and Kayak Rack System with Thule 460 Podium Base Rack and Thule 898 Hullavator Pro Kayak Lift Assist Rack


This shiny 2017 Ford Explorer Kayak Rack System is looking good with the Thule 460 Podium Roof Rack System using Thule Podium Fit Kit 3151 to attach to the factory installed flush side rails. Mounted to the square bars is the Thule 898 Hullavator Pro kayak lift assist system, which offers the easiest loading/unloading of any kayak rack system.

Great looking vehicle, great looking kayak, great looking vehicle rack system!
The Thule 898 Hulavator Pro kayak rack uses gas-assist struts to do the heavy lifting onto and off of the roof. Once the kayak is loaded into the cradles, the rest of the job is a piece of cake.
