    Could you show us a picture of what a Z-71 rack looks like? Or is this a product produced by the Iraqi Information Minister?

    I think he's talkin bout the stock GM rack that comes on these. I do not believe it's a "z71" rack, as I've seen other burbs and tahoe's with these racks....

    If it is indeed a GM rack- any GM dealer can get what he's lookin for

    for bikes, bolt some of those front fork mounts either to the crossbar,
    or to a 2x4 u can attach to the crossbar. Place rear crossbar under
    rear tire and strap down. I have put 4 fork mounts on a 2x4 at slight angles,
    then used u bolts to secure the 2x4 to teh side bars of a 96 rack. Make sure to use good
    screws for the fork mounts, but it has worked great on our burb.

    For a kayak, get some thick foam to put on the cross bars, then just get a few ratchet straps
    and secure it to the roof.
