I bought two sets of these racks for our Acura MDX and they fit perfectly over the factory racks. They take about 5 minutes to put both pair on and the same to remove. The added bonus is that the racks come with ratchet straps and tie down ropes. Pretty decent quality too! Definitely recommend the product!
I ordered 2 pair & this specific J-Loader has "boarding ramps" which makes loading kayaks so much easier than traditional J-Rack style carriers. Being a bit vertically challenged, I used to need a small step stool to load kayaks; with the Malone J-Loader, I can load kayaks without a step-stool. Build quality is excellent and minimal assembly is required. I had a few questions about the J-Loader before I bought it. I contacted the manufacturer a couple of times and each time they responded within 24 hours. So, great customer service department @ Malone. Will consider adding the Malone Telos Load Assist gizmo to make loading onto my small SUV even easier. As always, ACK customer service experience was 5-star and my order was shipped the same day it was placed & arrived 2 business days later.
