Nice Rack.

Some progress made. I got the new kayak rack (which consists of a Rola Sport roof rack and the Thule J-cradles for the boat), as well as the bike rack (a Curt class III trailer hitch receiver and the Swagman Chinook rack itself). I won’t actually be able to transport the boat safely until I get the front Vanguard bull bar to tie the bow to (I’ll tie the stern to the hitch receiver), but that will be here Monday. I’ll install that myself, just like I did the other components (and had to buy some ramps so I could crawl under the thing). Also Mondayish, I intend to order new DAI Alloy wheels (black, natch) loaded with top-of-the-line BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A tires. Sheesh, who knew a new ride would be so friggin’ expensive?

I’m also still waiting for the CanvasBack cargo area liner for the pups (because fur), and I’ll have to order a second set of J-cradles in the off-chance I ever need to carry both my boats. Just the cradles were kinda pricey, though – about $220/pair – so that can wait. But so far, I’m pleased with the Pimpin’ of My Ride.
