Yakima Might mounts Mopar Cross bars

Hi, not sure if this will be beneficial to anybody, but through trial and error I came up with an alternative to the Yakima Universal Mighty Mounts for my Yakima ski racks.

Way back in the 90's Yakima had a bunch of specific mighty mounts for different manufacturer cross bars. I had the old 10V's that fit my 4runner and Sequoia. Well somewhere in the early 2000's they stopped making them and told everybody to buy the Universals. The universals cost around $50 and are huge. I did not like this. Since I knew my 10V's were not going to fit I scoured the internet to find ones that would fit the dimensions of the OEM Mopar cross bars. Unfortunately no mighty mounts come with dimensions so you have to ask the seller. Some sellers just tell you to use the universal.

After a couple of fails, I found the 12V to be "close enough". It is a little big, but I lined the inside of the mount with velcro to give it some padding and decrease the diameter. They now fit nice and snug on the cross bar are so much smaller than the universal and only cost $14 instead of $50.

Now off to the mountains.

Nice. Can we get a close-up of one of the mounts on your rig? And then one that shows the entire rack too. Thanks.

Thanks. Nice. The bars don't look too high.

Yes they fit on nicely. Much better than the massive universal mounts from Yakima and cheaper too.
