-   -   Rad A Cage Tower width? (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=560056)

I tried doing a search on here and at supra's website but couldn't find the info so I'm hoping someone can help me out. I have a 2005 Supra 22ssv with the Rad A Cage tower (thick tubing). Does any one know the exact width of the tubing as I'm looking at getting extra board racks? <BR> <BR>Thanks

2 3/8" is correct. <BR> <BR>McFly <BR><a href="http://waterskiboatsdallas.blogspot.com" target="_blank">http://waterskiboatsdallas.blogspot.com</a>

My 2005 Moomba outback LSV measures 1.70" with a micrometer. I suggest you check your own tower because I was told 2 3/8" when my boat was in storage and I ordered a tower mirror which I had to send back!

I'm not sure who told you there was a 2 3/8" tower on an outback. They never have had the beefy towers that the late model (06-08) LS and LSV's have had.

There are only 2 sizes for the main towers on Supras and Moombas. The old style smaller tubing is 1 5/8". The new thicker styles are 2 3/8". However, the cross bar in the 2 3/8" towers is 1 7/8". <BR> <BR>McFly <BR><a href="http://waterskiboatsdallas.blogspot.com" target="_blank">http://waterskiboatsdallas.blogspot.com</a>

Thanks you guys for the info. <BR> <BR>Phil, I saw your post on Supra's and knew you were referring to a 03, and after looking at my friends 02 (same tower), realized it was much thinner then the 05's. <BR> <BR>Marty, can you explain exactly which Cross bar you're referring to as I'm looking to add the racks above the stock ones. However, I have a bimini design that folds from the back to the front and completely over the top of the tower. Any suggestions is appreciated as I want to make sure it all fits properly.

I believe that year model tower is 1.5" ID / 1 7/8" OD. If you'd like specifics about it, Ryan, feel free to give me a call on Monday when I'm back in the office. <BR> <BR>Cody <BR>XTP <BR>865-981-9898

Thanks Cody, I'll be back in the country on Monday. And if necessary, will give you a call. Thanks for the feedback. <BR> <BR>Are you sure it's 1.5" or 1 7/8"? That seems really small for the tube size I have. I know that the towers that came on earlier Supra's were thinner but the newer one's are really thick. <BR> <BR>Thanks

Ryan, <BR> <BR>I'm trying to remember back to '03 parts and I believe 1.5" ID with 1 7/8" oval crossmembers is correct. You're correct as far as the current models go, we use 2" ID / 2 3/8" OD on most of their current towers. <BR> <BR>Cody <BR>XTP
