Okay, so I wanted the utili track so I can adjust the tie downs anywhere I need. I got the Frontier to haul my Yamah Raptor ATV and it fits in nicely with the tail down. Anyway I was browsing a bit I am anxious to see what kinda goodies I can get for the Utili track. Anyone know of any companies coming out with Utili track stuff. I figure since both the Titan and Frontier have it there's gonna be stuff coming.

Drop me some link if you know of things, I like accessories and the utilitrack takes out the permanent nature of those. Thanks

Here's a link to a Titan forum. http://www.titantalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12472&highlight=cone+nuts. This guy found some cool nuts at Home Depot to mount his bike mount to his utili-trac. I might try this out too.
I did this with Yakima Blockheads (which are $20 a piece). I went to Home Depot and bought some misc. 1/4" bolts/washers(approx $4) to attach to the utili-track and it works great and is very sturdy. Also Yakima makes locking Blockheads($40 a piece) which have locking rim skewers instead of the regular ones. Just a little added security!!

Panthrd,

It never hurts to check with your local dealer on parts. I just ordered the bed divider
for my truck for the mere sum of $189. That was the cheapest price I found any where.

Treat your parts guys right and they will be good to you.

stormNismo, do you know if they make blockheads for a 20mm bolt thru axle?

Last I checked, you can get adapters for existing blockheads from hurricane parts -

Your bike fork mount will no longer be lockable. That is actually one of the things keeping me from going 20mm - do you think it is really a noticable differnence in stiffness ? At 225, I am curious, as I am selling OR parting my bike, dep. on whether I want to go with a new fork/wheel combo!

ive heard of hurricane...they have the Fork up..for 20mm and lefty...hope they could come up with something lockable though.

for me it really depends on what you do with your bike...i have Hadley's on mine.
if you xc...it would be too much weight.freeride or DH..yeah! btw, were about the same weight.
