    Need help ordering Horizontal Mighty Mounts for rack faring please!!!

    Just over a week till my long trip to Tennesse. I'm getting at Thule 870 fairing from a guy this weekend. I need the horizontal mighty mounts to mount the fairing though. I notice that a lot of people have them on, but no one specifies a part number or size. Yakima has like 14H, 25H, 28H...yada yada yada. Does anyone know which one fits our factory bars? Yakima does not know. I called. She said, "a Vehi-what?" I said thanks for the help and goodbye. Hahaha. Can someone please find out what model might mounts are used for their fairings and post a part number or "25H" or something for me? I need to get these ordered by the weekend.

    I found this:

I also covered the fairing’s shiny center section with matte automotive vinyl to subdue the advertising.



    Thanks to Ken Anderson (Kenny), Bart (nfpgasmask) (great write-up ,BTW), and etlsport for the mod suggestions and recommendations.

    I’m hoping to be able to retain the fairing set-up when I acquire the Thule expedition 696. I hope to mount the rack with another set of four Mighty Mount horizontals, belaying the t-bolt in the rubber-filled top gap of the cross bars.

    Kenny, or anyone, do you have inside deck measurements of the 696?

    I have a couple of Army medical chests (20” x 32” each, 40” x 32” next to each other) that I want to make sure will fit on the deck of the 696. Thanks.




    Has a Yakima number. I'm about to find out if it works. Hahaha. I suck at searching.
