Easy to install, functions grreat

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Paired these with the standard round bars and they are great. Easy to use/install and look sleek and nice.

Easy to Install, Versatile.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very easy to install and comes with it's own torque wrench tool so you know that they are on secure. I paired these with the JetStream cross bars and they look great.

Solid base rack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Put those siderails to use and get your gear up on top of the car! These are super easy to install, feel very solid and well made, and provide a secure connection point to get your rack system started. They work with all of the Yakima bars, roundbars, corebars, and jetstream bars and the instructions clearly state how to easily use them with each different type.

Another Great Product by Yakima

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Paired with Yakima Corebar, FatCat Evo 6, on a 2010 Subaru Forester. These things have a good weight to them and they feel solid. This is probably one of my favorite products by Yakima. Quality.

Yakima is the Best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You cannot beat roof rack systems by Yakima. I needed the rails and tower system, and was not let down! They are quality made and easy to install. They even come with the tool needed to torquing things just right. Along with my Yakima box, it's a great system at a reasonable price. Paired with Yakima CoreBar Base Rack Bars

Easy to install, look great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I paired these with the Core bar and the installation was very straightforward. My OCD tendencies probably lengthened the installation time because I was trying to line everything up to the millimeter but after I got everything perfect I am very happy with the product.

So easy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

By far the easiest Yakima roof system I've installed yet. Love the Timberline system.

Yakima TimberLine Raised Rail Tower

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

One tower came with a stripped/damaged bolt which damaged the receiving bolt hole attachment on the crossbar. Very annoying and poor quality control by Yakima. Backcountry was excellent with the return and replacement. Thx Backcountry!!!!!

Jeep looks good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We switched from a Mazda3 to Jeep Grand Cherokee. I wanted to easily bring over all my roof top carriers. Since I couldn't use the same towers that the Mazda used I needed to buy these. I didn't want to buy factory cross bars from Jeep because I have longer cross bars to fit multiple carriers at once. These were super easy to install and I've adjusted them once already. Easy to do in about 30minutes or less. They look good and are very durable.

If you are using round bars, be sure to buy the adapters.

I took my locks out of my old towers and put them in these, that way I didn't need to buy new locks.

Fit well with other yakima products, generally easy to install, despite directions, once on seems durable.
