The J2000 Series ladder racks are designed to fit the Ford Transit Connect compact panel vans. Transit Connect vans feature roof top bolts that the two-bar roof racks attach to. No drilling is required for installation.
Vantech's J2000 Series ladder racks are two bar systems that connect directly to the factory bolts of the Ford Transit Connect compact panel vans. Rubber gaskets are placed in between the mounting bases and roof top to prevent water from leaking into the vehicle. The aluminum system contains channels that allow Vantech accessories to be added and adjusted to desired positions. Accessories are added by attaching sliders that slip and lock into the channels of the extruded aluminum bars. The cross bars are available in 50" and 55" lengths and feature an oblong design that helps cut down on drag. Two included ladder stoppers are inserted into the front cross bar and stop the forward momentum when braking occurs. Ladder stoppers are adjustable from 4" x 6" and help secure ladders of all different sizes. When the stoppers are installed at the highest setting, the transit connect ladder rack stands at 12-1/2" while the lowest overall height measures at 10-1/2". The ladder stoppers are powder coated and rubber dipped on the lower section to help protect cargo. Four side supports are also included to help prevent lateral shift when taking tight turns. Model A comes with two EZ Velcro straps that loop around ladder rungs and hold ladders up to 75 lbs. For added protection, the dual roof bars are powder coated in black, white, or silver finishes. Galvanized hardware is included with the drill-free roof rails.
