Any update on a fairing that would work up to 80mph unloaded?

From what I understand, the wind faring is in the testing phase. Im thinking there are a few designs hes evaluating and I bet it will cost less than LFDs.

What do you need and what does it need to look like, bolt pattern size etc. If we can figure on a good design, we can do it.

This is correct. I’m working out the prototype now. Once I’m satisfied a few folks will get them to test. Once I get their feedback I’ll list them for sale.

The rack is on! All I can say is, it is awesome. Fitment and design are right on. Rooftop tent will be going on next, and I am sure it will hold. This thing is solid. Only issue I had was one of the holes on the beam from TNutz was not drilled far enough in. Just need a shorter bolt for that one.

Good job on the installation.
For that short hole in the crossbar, maybe it’s plugged with some aluminum shavings from the TNutz drill/tap process. One of mine came that way also, but I was able to clean it out with a thin probe. You could try cleaning up the threads with a 1/4 - 20 Tap. If the hole is actually not drilled deep enough you would need to first drill it deeper before tapping it. I believe the drill bit to use is a 13/64 inch. @Eitek1 will know for sure what to do.

So glad you like it. As Ive said, I worked on this a while to ensure everything was right before I shipped anything. Its hard to describe just how solid this thing is without seeing one in person.

Sorry about the short threaded hole on the crossbar. The threads are a 1/4-20 pitch. The holes already exist in the crossbars Tnutz just threads them. Chances are they didnt run the tap deep enough.

If you pick up a 1/4-20 tap and some WD-40 you can run the tap in and you wont even have to remove it from the roof. Youre also fine with a shorter bolt. You probably dont lose much strength.

I did it mostly by myself, took my time and shot a bunch of pictures along the way. That said, less than an hour.
Straightforward and easy.

Tent on. Fits perfectly. Tent rails sit about 3 inches from the sides, so zero flex on the crossbeams.
