I had Thule racks on my old camper shell, my mom had thule racks on her trooper and my friend who always uses my garage had thule racks on his integra...as a result I have a lot of thule bars just sittin in my garage and really wanna put racks on my truck (99 xtra cab) to carry my snowboard but can't find the the feet. Does Thule not make them? If not, then does anyone know if they make just a universal foot (like that would drill on or something? I tried my best at searchin the interweb and couldn't figure much out except that Yakima would be easier to find feet for :confused: but that doesn't help me...or at least not my budget... any help?

How about selling the extra parts on ebay and throwing your board in the bed of your truck? When I go with my friends that's what we do, plus you can use the $$ you make to buy a lift ticket.

I have used 2x4's mounted in the bed to haul my surfboards around. Im sure you could fab something like that up to hold the Thule bars, especially if you have gutter feet. Just get some steel and a BFH, put it in the vice and make some gutter mounts.

I would be real careful about drilling in the cab.. LEAKS SUCK!! ANyways, I had a surco i was going to mount on my ex-cab roof and decided to wait and get a camper to mount it on. I just don't like the idea of drilling holes in the top of my roof.
