RXT Wake Boarding
Got a wakeboard as a gift a few weeks ago, nothing fancy since I had never done it before… Went out to try/learn this weekend and it was a blast, was able to get up and stay up in the first hour. Anyway, I was looking at getting the wakeboard rack that comes for the RXT and the dealer of course wants full MSRP + installation (dealer said special tools needed)... Anyone have any experience with the wakeboard rack installation? Where is a good place to buy it? How much? Any info will be appreciated!

If you look at it, there are 2 mounts that get mounted to the inside of the footwell and the rack saddles the footwell. All it would take is a drill and screwdriver to secure the 2 mounts.
unless you plan on taking more than one board out at a time, $170 is alot for what it is. I find it easiest to just either put it bindings down on the seat and it will fit snug and not go anywhere, or just put it on your lap and hold it. Alot easier than spending 170 dollars. If you have any more questions shoot me a pm

I have one on my RXP, its worth the money if you board any at all, IMO.
All you have to do is drill holes(x3 for each mounting tab).

I installed them on my 07 RXT. To me they are totally worth it. You need a right angle drill to drill the holes. I bought a right angle adapter at Lowes to do it.

Where did you get the racks from? They look cool in the RXT from your signature... Any good place to buy those at a decent discount under MSRP?

The right-angle adapter was less than 20 bucks. I bought the board racks on ebay from this seller...
Hope this helps

Right-angled drill but. . . that would have made it a bit easier, but got it done with the standard power drill on mine:

Does the OEM cover still fit or does the rack need to come off to cover the ski?... Ron

Remove the rack, only take seconds, literally SECONDS. . . on only parts that are "permanent" are the mounting tabs inside the foot wells.
