Kayaks, Skis and Crossbars

Just thought I would share for those fellow owners with the Sport Utility Crossbars...

I found that Whispbar, an Austrailian company affiliated with Yakima, produces rack accessories that are also T-bolt compatible that will nicely fit into the T slots of the Optional Sport Utility Crossbars for the Commander. So rather than deal with the oddities offered by Thule and Yakima, I ordered and installed this past winter, the WB300 ski racks (perfect fit) and currently have on order the WB400/401 Kayak J mounts, both of which are really cool looking, sleek, aerodynamic and T slot compatible.
Perhaps this might save some of you from spending all the time I spent looking for a high quality yet simple easy solution that would fit into the Sport Crossbars!

Picture with ski racks is attached.

I run the Yakima "old style" rail-riders on my XK with no mods just made some plates instead of the wimpy square nuts that were on the rail riders.
