Well Thule/Yakima/Inno don't want to make a rack system for the 6 series because of the trim and roof line angles blah blah blah. If I worked for them I would engineer something but because I don't I had to settle for a strap based rack system from SteelCore. I tested it up to 70mph and it was solid

Yeah that view from the first pic was going to be the view from my condo. The unit in the 3rd to last pic between the two with the lights on was the one I moved into. I had to move back into my old condo across the street because my allergies were too bad. My friend who owns it had a cat there .

I must say, that my friend, looks badass! Great job. You should keep that board on there as a permanent fixture/mod. Who knows, you might start a trend! LOL!

Looks good. I wish I could get a Thule hard rack for the 6. I really need to get a board bag like yours to prevent dings transporting it. I live in a highrise condo and it just barely fits into the elevator. It's a 10'6" Paddle Surf Hawaii SUP board. You should see the look on peoples faces when the elevator door opens and there is no room for them because of the gigantic board!

I might cave in an pick up an 07 Tahoe/Avalanche(in white of course!) or something to haul shit in. I just really don't want to have 2 cars right now since I would need to rent a second spot since I only have 1.
