    Yakima Components

    I just got a new SUV, and I'm trying to get it fitted for a Yakima Rack, but the price is a little bit of an issue for me. Since I can't afford to buy it stright from Yakima, does anyone know where I can get a good deal on the parts I need? Of course I am looking for a dependable place. I need a pair of Q43 and Q29 clips, 4 Q towers, 58" crossbars, and eventually a LoadWarrior Gear Basket. I will also be looking for 4 SKS Lock Cores and a Stretch Net for the LoadWarrior, but these can come later. So far, I have found a few deals on eBay and other sites here and there, but I just don't know if I should buy used stuff. Please, if you know anything let me know. Thanks so much ya'll!
    God Bless,

    my friends... i know some of you are fairly new here on HF but the guys who set up this site have laid out rules for HF that we keep the focus here just on hammocks & things directly related to hammocks.

    even the "non-hammock" forum is supposed to be kept in some way tied to hammock use.

    no one's mad or anything like that... just help keep us on track<G>. thanks. ...tim

    Yeah, that wasn't my set up! I told my friend to think long & hard about doing that. He's not small, over 6' & 200 lbs. Then, after he did it and it held, I told him he'd better not forget & drive off with the hammock still attached!
