...The attachment was really easy, and they are held on there very well. Our next goal is to see if we can adapt the MaxTrax Mounting Pin Set to a 8mm bolt that will fit in the K9 Rack slots. This will improve accessibility and make them easy to lock down. Stay tuned.

Cheers,
Very interested in this! I need to get some more pin kits from Maxtrax and try to figure out something too.

K9 Roof Rack Shovel, Axe & Hi Lift Mounts

K9 Roof Rack Shovel, Axe & Hi Lift Mounts

Equipt is proud to announce the launch of 3 new K9 Roof Rack Accessories

K9 Shovel Mount

The Eezi-Awn K9 Shovel Mount is an ingenious way to mount your recovery shovel to the side of the K9 Roof Rack System. It is designed to accommodate any size of style shovel by clamping to the handle shaft instead of the blade or handle end. The cover clamps down to reduce rattles, and there is a loop provided for attaching a lock. The mount has a flat back surface, and utilizes one of the K9 Accessory Adapters to attach to the side of the rack. Accessory Adapter is included with Mount. Price: $55


K9 Axe Mount

The Eezi-Awn K9 Axe Mount is designed very similar to the shovel mount, with the exception of the tool cradle. The cradle it deeper and a bit more narrow, to better control the traditional style axe handle. Price: $55


K9 Hi Lift Mount

The Eezi-Awn K9 Hi Lift Mount with cover lets you store your Hi Lift on the top or on the side of your K9 Roof Rack. It consists of two parts, a base bracket that has a positioning pin and bolt location, and a handle/ladder bracket to hold the top end of the lift. The bracket clamps down over the handle and ladder, and includes a positioning loops that keeps the ladder in place and provides a hole for a lock. The bolt in the base holds the hi lift base tightly in place reducing rattles. Hi Lift Mount includes a cover for the lift mechanism, to keep the elements away. Price: $86

Though each accessory is designed for use with the K9 Roof Rack System, they are easily universal. The back of each accessory is flat when the adapter is removed. It could be mounted to most any flat surface.

Cheers,

Yes, the tire carrier for the rack is scheduled to arrive in February with our next container. We're looking forward to having that available.

I did attend SEMA this year. My 8th year in a row. It was a good show. A lot of the same stuff, but a few new things. Eezi-Awn was represented outside in the Feature Vehicle area with a K9 Rack on the Overland Journal LR4, and Expedition Overland was sporting a couple of our roof top tents in their expedition ready Tacoma and trailer.

Jus 4 Fun-

I'm debating between the longer rack that comes over the sunroof on my TE or doing a shorter rack like you did. What is the length of the one you mounted? Do you regret having the smaller rack with the shorter awning? Appreciate the feedback. Thanks - Clint

Excelsior!
Have you had any successful applications of the rack system to a 2005 Toyota Sequoia or similar model year?

Hi Jim,

We haven't installed the K9 Rack on a Sequoia yet, but I have spent some time looking at photos of the OEM rack on that vehicle and I don't see that it would be too difficult to do. The key to whether it would fit or not is the width of the OEM rack, outside to outside. If you can get that measurement for me, I will be able to tell you our options. What I do notice is on that year and model there are 3 mounting locations for the OEM rack. This is great news. It gives us solid OEM mounting locations at front/mid/rear. It is very similar to the layout for the Land Cruiser 100 Series. That would be the system to use. It would most likely require new mounting holes in the rail to match the OEM mounting points, but other than that it would be a great fit. Here is the link to the 100 Series K9 Roof Racks.

Please let me know that width measurement and let's see if we can put something together for you.

Cheers,

Thanks for the kind words guys. Jay, the Thule bars look great on there. That opens up a whole world of options for your rack system. Very cool.

Any success adapting the MaxTrax Pins to the K9 Rack Slots?

Not yet. We've been running full speed here at the shop. I haven't had a chance to get to this project yet. Brian McVickers of Overland International has a K9 Roof Rack on his 3rd Gen 4Runner, and he came up with an interesting concept that has great promise. It is a pair of brackets that span a couple slats and provide mounting holes for the MaxTrax mounting pins to fasten to. It was the direction I had planned to go. Jess Stuhler, the owner of Eezi-Awn, is coming to the US next week to help out in our booth at the Overland Expo. If you have a chance to stop by and chat, please to. I will be discussing this project with him. We'll see what his 2 cents on the idea are.

Cheers,
