My local dealership had a catalog showing the factory rack and all the accessories. The base rack was pretty ugly... not something I'd want to leave on all the time, and it was over $400.

The Yakima website has a fitment guide, but it's kind of confusing. I had to visit a local Yakima dealer to get a good answer. I think the fitment guide tries to steer you into the system that clamps onto the roof rather than the tracks.

Anyway, I went the Yakima route because a) it was cheaper, b) I already had the stuff from when I drove an Explorer (same fitment). I had the racks in the corner of my garage for almost a year before I figured out they'd work on the T :)
