Looking to add a platform above the cab. Looked at Rhino and Yakima, but really confused on how they mount. Anyone find a good youtube video of how they mount or done it themselves?

I was curious about this as well and what I think I learned was ...

You’ll need to mount the platform/basket to a roof rack. And, to mount a roof rack to our trucks, without rails, we’ll have to use one of the mounts that grabs on to the sides of the roof above the doors ... like the Yakima BaseLine system. From there you can add the bars and then the LockNLoad platform.

Check out rhino rack pioneer platform with backbone rails. Uses factory holes.

Just found this yesterday, but could only find Ranger install which required drilling 5-7 holes on each side. Will look for Super Duty install again.

Appreciate the feedback. Talked to Rhino, guess the rails haven’t been test fit on a 2017+ Super Duty yet. Might head out to Aurora, CO and get 50% off and let them test fit.

That Rhino platform does look pretty slick and I like a solid mount over the clamps. I just wonder how compatible their platform is with Yakima accessories, or vice versa ... I really wouldn’t want to have a different system on the roof vs the bed.

looks like it works no issue.

For overlanding, has anyone here used the Road Armor racks for a Roof Top Tent over the bed? Ideally, I would like to put a tonneau cover under the rack, but I think it would have to roll rather than fold to fit. If anyone has done something like that, I would love to know brands and see pictures.
