Thule TP42 42" Tracks and Thule TP54 54" Tracks
*both are for permanently installing on sheet metal surfaces
MADE IN THE U.S.A.
The (TB60) 60 inch Thule Roof Tracks (sold as a pair) are for permanent rack installation applications and make it possible to build a multi-purpose base rack system on any fiberglass surfaces. Common, popular solutions include any pickup truck fiberglass camper shells, caps & toppers, tonneau covers, pop up camper roof tops, Jeep Wrangler Hard Top and more. Once the pair of TB60 Thule Tracks are installed, simply attach any compatible Thule roof rack system to the Thule roof tracks. We highly recommend both the Thule 460 Podium roof rack system and Thule 460R Rapid Podium roof rack system (be sure to select the Thule 3101 Podium Fit Kit as the correct Fit Kit with either of the 460 / 460R Podium rack systems to properly attach to the 60" Thule TB60 Roof Tracks.) Other popular options are the Thule 430 Tracker II roof rack system and Thule 430R Rapid Tracker II roof rack system (be sure to select the Thule TK1 Tracker Kit as the correct TK Tracker Kit with either of the 430 / 430R Tracker II rack systems to properly attach to the 60" Thule TB60 Roof Tracks.)
Thule Tracks offer the superior option of adjusting and positioning the roof rack anywhere along the roof tracks for perfectly setting the distance between the front and rear crossbars and matching whatever load is being carried, such as distancing the cross bars further apart to provide a safe foundation to carry long gear and equipment such as ladders, lumber, canoe, kayaks etc.
Easy do it yourself installation. Includes two (2) TB60 Tracks, all premium mounting hardware for fiberglass surfaces and installation instructions that clearly outline each step of the process so you know you'll get the job done right. Thule TB60 Tracks are 60" in length and you can easily cut them to any shorter length if needed. Thule Racks Lifetime Warranty!
Thule TB60 Tracks are installed by drilling into any fiberglass surface such as Jeep Wrangler Hard Top, pop up camper rooftop, any pickup truckbed cap, topper & camper shell, fiberglass tonneau covers etc. The TB60 60 inch Thule Tracks include specific bolts and nuts (no Flare Nuts) for installing on fiberglass surfaces only.
For installing to sheet metal surfaces, such as pickup truck, van and car metal rooftops, you will need to use the Thule TP42 42" Tracks or Thule TP54 54" Tracks as both of these roof track systems include Flare Nuts for specifically installing to metal surfaces.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR THULE 60" TRACKS
Please contact us or call us at 1-800-894-7547 if you have any additional questions.
WHY WOULD I INSTALL TRACKS?
Thule Roof Rack Tracks provide a way to install a rack where no other option exists, or offer an alternative in where a rack is positioned and placed on a vehicle's roof. Some simply prefer the appearance over other options.
WHAT THULE MULTI-PURPOSE BASE RACK SYSTEMS DO I USE?
For mounting to the Thule Roof Tracks we highly recommend both the Thule 460 Podium roof rack system and Thule 460R Rapid Podium roof rack system (be sure to select the Thule 3101 Podium Fit Kit as the correct Fit Kit with either of the 460 / 460R Podium rack systems to properly attach to the 60" Thule TB60 Roof Tracks.) Other popular options are the Thule 430 Tracker II roof rack system and Thule 430R Rapid Tracker II roof rack system (be sure to select the Thule TK1 Tracker Kit as the correct TK Tracker Kit with either of the 430 / 430R Tracker II rack systems to properly attach to the 60" Thule TB60 Roof Tracks.)
HOW DO I PUT THE THULE TRACKS ON?
The included installation instructions clearly illustrate where to position the roof tracks and where to drill the mounting holes. Mark those points, drill the holes, install the bolts and nuts and tighten down the tracks. Again, the included Thule Tracks installation instructions clearly outline each step of the process so you know you'll get the job done right.
WHAT KIND OF WATERPROOFING IS USED?
The tracks come with a waterproofing kit including nylon and rubber washers, a pad running the length of the track, and silicone for the screw threads. Installed as directed by the instructions, it'll always keep the water out and resist corrosion much better than a factory installed rack.

Contribute Your Review of the 60" TB60 Thule Tracks
this Thule TB60 Tracks review by Joel Y.
vehicle year/make/model: 2006 Toyota Tundra with fiberglass cap on pick-up truck bed
item(s) transported: ladders, construction materials, hopefully a canoe soon
Very easy to install on my fiberglass cap. I already had the load bars and Thule Feet from another vehicle, so all I needed were these roof tracks to put them on the truck. Hardest part was getting it laid out and lined up before I drilled the holes. You will need a buddy to help tighten the bolts if you are putting these on a cap like I did. One guy above with the allen wrench, and one guy in the truck to hold the nut. I actually used longer stainless steel bolts on half of the holes so that I could mount wood strips on the underside of the cap. Now I can hang things from the ceiling in the back of the truck if they are wet. I might put a net up there too for little lightweight items that would otherwise get in the way or roll around back there. I would definitely recommend these tracks to friends.

A quick and easy way to carry my bikes and gear that enables me to use my truck bed. I also have the ability to secure the rack in the bed when not in use to save money on fuel.
Easy to Install

vehicle year/make/model: 2011 Toyota Tacoma
item(s) transported: kayaks
(PLEASE NOTE: This review also includes a review of the Thule 430 Tracker II roof rack system). I first went to a cap dealer and learned about roof racks and decided I could purchase and install them myself. The dealer wanted to install a product I didn't think would work for my needs.
Great Set Up
this Thule TB60 Tracks review by E. Dreher
vehicle year/make/model: 2010 Ford F250 Super Duty 4x4 diesel
item(s) transported: bicycles
I am overall very pleased with the performance of my set-up. I went with Thule Tracks 60" on my pickup truckbed in order to allow me to span the truck bed and elevate the bikes above it. The only issue I had with the install was that since I have a rolling retractable bed cover I was forced to set the tracks further towards the edge of the bed rail. Once I drilled the pilot holes, I found out accessing the bolts would be difficult. But, I made it work. My only complaint is with the quality of mounting hardware. It would be nice to have a few extra nuts. I actually replaced the hardware with some I purchased. The Thule 430 Tracker II roof rack is then connected to the Tracks (using the TK1 Tracker included with the 430 Tracker II system). A couple bike racks are then mounted to the roof rack cross bars (78 inch length for spanning all the way across the Ford F250 truck bed from one bed rail to the other).

item(s) transported: Bikes
(ATTENTION: Also includes a review of the Thule 460 Podium roof rack system, Thule 599XTR Big Mouth bike rack and SportRack Nomad bike rack.)
Easy to install and very solid. The Sportrack Nomad is used on my wife's and my bike, is very secure and does the job. Bought the Bigmouth for my daughter's smaller bike and it is very slick. Wish I would of bought it for the other 2 bikes. Will definitely purchase for my youngest daughters' new bike next year.

ORS Crew explains - We recently had a great customer question that asked about installing Thule Tracks from an older model vehicle over onto a new one. Customer had old install instructions that were current only up 2001, and wanted to know if there are any new revisions/updates for determining the drilling points on a particular rooftop? We went to Thule Racks directly for the best answer possible on this one... "Due to a multitude of variations from roof to roof, Thule no longer suggests specific fitments for any particular roofline. We now use the following guidelines: (1) minimum 28" mounting left to right, center of track to center of track; (2) do not install on vehicles with sunroofs, panoramic roofs or retractable roofs; (3) do not install on vehicles with side curtain air bags; (4) we recommend any customer not comfortable drilling into their roof themselves, to have an automotive specialist do it for them." Our Thule TB60 Tracks install instructions provide all additional install step by step help. And as always, if you have further questions you can always contact us directly.
