Q: Are any modifications to my truck required?

A: No, no modifications are required to install a Jet Trax in the bed of your pickup truck.

Q: Can one person install or uninstall a Jet Trax from the truck alone?
A: Yes, with the optional dolly wheel kit, (4 legs and casters) you would simply slide the Jet Trax part way out and attach a leg to each corner. This keeps the Jet Trax the same height as you truck, so one person can safely load and unload a Jet Trax in about 10 minutes.
Q: Can I install a Jet Trax if my truck has a plastic bed liner?
A: Yes, it does not matter if you have a plastic or spray in bed liner.
Q: How do I load my watercraft onto the Jet Trax?

A: You simply float your PWC up to the cradle of the Jet Trax, and insert the hook from the Jet Trax into the nose hook of your watercraft. Flip the remote control switch and watch your PWC load into the back of youpick up truck. It only takes about 30 seconds. (Click Here to see a clip of a PWC being loaded onto a Jet Trax)

Q: How do I unload my watercraft into the water?
A: The reverse of what you did to load the PWC. The gravity and the controlled reverse action of the WARN winch quickly and easily lower your PWC into the water.

Q: How do I secure my load Watercraft to the Jet Trax?

A: After the PWC are loaded onto the Jet Trax, put the travel pin in the Jet Trax and put 2 straps from the back of the watercraft to the underside of the truck bumper. This will hold the back end secure. The front end is secured by the winch.

Q: How does a fully –loaded rack affect the way my truck handles?

A: Your truck will handle as if you were carrying a small camper. Even thought the watercraft sit above the bed rails of the truck, most most of the weight of the PWC's is over the rear wheels of the truck and the engine sits down low on the watercraft. Depending on the size of your truck, you should barely notice the extra weight.

Q: Can I carry just one Watercraft?
A: Yes, if you have a double model, you can still carry only one watercraft on one side.
Q: What size Watercraft can the Jet Trax carry?

A: A 6 ½ foot model can carry watercraft up to 117 inches in length and an 8 foot model can carry watercraft up to 131 inches in length.

Q: Can I put a 3 seater watercraft on a 6 ½ foot bed pick up truck?
A: No, because a 3 seater watercraft is about 10 feet long and your truck is only 6 ½ feet long, this would leave approximately 3 ½ feet of overhang over the back of your truck. This would affect your turning radious if you were towing a boat or travel trailer. Also, this puts the weight of the PWC behind the rear wheels of your truck instead of over the rear wheels of your truck. Depending on the size of your truck, this can make the front end of your truck too light and unsafe.

Q: Do you make a model to fit small or mid-size trucks?

A: No, the full size trucks work best for carrying watercraft, some mid-size trucks can carry 2 seater watercraft.

Q: Can I have a “custom” rack built?

A: No, we can not make custom racks, but we can do some minor modifications to a Jet Trax. Please call us at 1-800-953-8729 to discuss your modifications.

Q. After ordering, how soon will I receive my Jet Trax?

A: If we have your model Jet Trax in stock, it will be about a week. Please call 3-4 weeks before you need a Jet Trax to make sure we have one in stock.
