Yakima Rack on the Focus

I thought I would share in case anyone needed info on racks. The Yakima Q-Towers (post 2004) and the Q-128 clips and 58" bars. I needed more room for a camping trip (4 days at Lake Roberts, Gila National Forest NM). The wife and I, and of course the dog. We don't pack light (below 30F at night and we like to be comfy in the tent) and the extra 15 cubic feet (Yakima Rocketbox 15s) on the roof (it's bigger than it looks) meant that both the wife and the dog got to go. The wife would have really missed out otherwise. Worked perfectly, didn't even know it was up there.

That's the wife's car. SE, Auto, 201A, keyless entry, Sport Package. Parked at the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Mine will be here in a couple weeks. Same car except mine is a stick and Sterling Gray Metallic.

Candy Blue SE HB, 6sp Auto, Sport Package for the wife
Sterling Metallic SE HB, 5sp manual, Sport Package for me
