To ensure your new PRTS will work best for you, we recommend first taking some measurements of your vehicle. You can follow
along below to create a cardboard template of your rod transport system and see exactly how your system will fit on your vehicle.
This cardboard template will be a representation of the profile view of the reel housing box and will help determine the proper
mounting position and if any risers may be needed for your setup. Risers allow for a larger gap between the roof of your vehicle
and your Rod Transport System. This helps create additional space for your vehicle hatch to open. To determine what riser may be
needed, you can follow along below to create a cardboard template of the PEAK Rod Transport System and see exactly how your
system will fit on your vehicle.
To create a mock-up template, you will need two materials. First, a cardboard rectangle at least 13 9/16 ” wide by 7 9/16” tall.
Next, a 2×4 or other similar piece of material; this will lay across your vehicle rail to determine height and does not need to be the
actual length of the PRTS.
Start by cutting the cardboard out per the diagram below. Measure then place marks at each of the six corners indicated by the
black dots. Connect the dots to make a template of the Reel Housing Box. The 2×4 or other material can be attached with staples,
nails, tape or anything else. Simply make sure the bottom edge lines up with the corner of the Reel Housing Box template, as
indicated in blue below.
