Identify This Yakima rack?

Can anyone identify this Yakima fork mount rack? Is it part of a larger kit or a stand alone?

Sold Yakima for 3 decades, never seen that model. Has security straps for the trunk or hatch, but not sure how it secures to the vehicle. Also missing, I presume, the wheel trays.

Barry2 's got it.

It looks like a pair of early 90s aero bars. I sold Yak for a bit but couldn't place it either.

Barry2 - THANKS! Exactly what I needed. I was looking for the mounting instruction.

I was told it mounted over the tailgate but I couldn't figure out how.

I googled for a while but was looking for a tailgate mounted rack.

Just as an example..

Just get a fork mount or two and screw them to a 2X6.

Hell..this rack was 6.99 w/ a 20% discount, 55 qualifies as a senior and, at that price I figured, what the heck, why not. That's cheaper than a wood 2x6! LOL

Well, I'll be dipped. Learn something new everyday. Never had one in our shops, and I don't even recall seeing one in their catalogs. I like the idea of wedging a 2x4 across the bed and two eye bolts screwed into it. Being wedged in provides just a tiny amount of anchor to keep from bouncing the rack.

I had emailed Yakima about this rack in May, same time as my original post.

Barry2 had the answer in one day.

Yakima just replied to my inquiry yesterday, It only took them 4 months to respond
Today I get another email asking me what my thoughts were about my customer service experience....
