    Might also try 1 5/8" channel nuts. They come threaded in 5/16" and 3/8". These work perfectly in the Pioneer Platform channels.

    Nice call @DeekT, channel nuts are extremely useful for the Maximus-3 roof rack with Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform. Most accessories and holders mount to the rack with channel nuts. We sell channel nuts, if anyone needs them give us a call.
    Cheers

    That's how I'm mounting my RTT. I have 1/4" rubber and 5/16" channel nuts ordered and as soon as the weather clears up a little I will be putting it all together.

    Another thing to keep in mind is with the channel nuts and correct heavy duty washers and eye bolts you now have universal tie down locations that install in seconds.

    Here it is on my JK. It sits a bit higher off the rack but it’s so simple to get the tent locked into position. I don’t have a pic of the JL with tent on yet. Just got the Maximus 3 setup installed last weekend.

    How are folks carrying kayaks on the pioneer platform?
    I think my kayaks are a bit too wide to do 2 side by side when laying them flat. I'll need something to support them standing up I figure.

    Has anyone hoisted their top up using eye bolts? I have an old LJ hoist t bar that I used for my LJ, JK, and eventually my JK with the pioneer platform. Wondering if eye bolts would be better than using the hooks under the rack.
