Review by Ty Posted on May 2, 2019I am a huge fan of the Overhaul HD for my 2017 Tacoma. I can now take kayaks and bikes for multi-sport days. Being able to quickly remove (~2 minutes) the entire rack system still allows me to use the truck bed for yard work or loading large items. Overall this is a great and well designed rack sy...read morestem that is reliable, durable, and quick to remove. Nice work Yakima.

Review by PLN2ESC Posted on May 1, 2019This is a great rack. Holds lots of things. Probably a lot more could be added, but lacks information on t-slot nut or bolt sizes. Wanted to add lights to the back of the rack, but finding the correct mounting is missing from specification.
Installation was easy, but had to add C-c...read morelamps to hold the mounts against the bed till final placement. Even after correctly torquing the bolts, had two plates that wanted to pull away from bed, creating a gap. Once, I have determined the location for life, will drill and mount additional bolts to secure the mounts to the bed securely.
Unless you have a long bed truck (8ft) go with the short side bars.
Moving the height after the installation of the crossbar is not easy and does require the removal of the crossbars.
Once all of the mounts and bars are secure, the rack is rock solid!
Mounting kayak mounts allowed the rack to be below the truck roof line. This is great so no additional drag is added in everyday driving.
