There are 2 types of landing pads Heidi, one that bolts through the roof of
your vehicle and the other that rests on the roof and clips on to a rain
gutter or if there is no rain gutter it clips to the top of the door frame.
Most people don't want to drill holes in the roof of the car or truck cab
and select the clip on "Q-clips". However these most likely won't work on a
truck cap, one that fits over the truck bed, and there it's not hard to bolt
on a pair of bolt on ones, I have this combination on my Ford Ranger, bolt
on the rear cap with 2 mounting pads, and clip on on the truck cab in front,
this permits me to spread out the 2 rack bars for 2 18' kayaks. You will
need 2 pads for each bar. Now comes the hard part, Q-clips are different for
every make and year of vehicle so you need this info to look up which one
will work on your vehicle, all of the mounts that bolt through are alike as
far as I remember. Your best bet is to go to the Yakima home page and see
their tables to find which one matches up to your vehicle, this site also
explains all of what I have told you and maybe more.
