  1. Roof racks - alternative to crossbars for OEM style rails?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello, I have knockoff OEM style rails and crossbars and the rails look fine but the crossbars look too tall and flimsy for me. for those unfamiliar, the rails function like a giant T slot and the crossbar has the T shape that inserts into cutouts in the rails. I'm wondering if this is a...
  2. P38 Roof Rails custom solution for Front Runner/Rhino Racks

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The factory roof racks are fairly useless--you can't put a full platform rack on them without a bunch of shims and some drilling. SD are out there, but $1500 or so seems to be the going price. Voyager to. But Rhino, Front Runner, etc....none of them have shown any love for the P38 so I...
  3. Roof Racks

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hey guys I’m trying to figure out exactly how roof rails are mounted to the mount points. I’m loving my new to me toy and want to throw a basket on the top without completely breaking the bank. Any advice to shine some light on what I need would be great. Thanks in advance.

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    I just got the unfortunate news from my dealer just 2 days after I took delivery that my First Edition cannot have roof load bars installed because Land Rover is restricting dealers from retrofitting roof rails on new Velars that were not originally equipped at the factory with them...
  5. How much are OEM expedition racks worth?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I bought an expedition rack for my 05' today, I didn't know what to offer so I just got the guy as low as he would go. I can't find any online, not even Roverland. How much are they worth?

  8. New option for Roof Racks - Great alternative!

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I didn't like the factory option for the roof rack. It was too expensive and changed the lines of the car. However, I needed a roof rack for my surfboard. Decided to go with the Sea Sucker. It holds the surfboard well. Can't leave on roof for more than a couple of days, unless you re-pump...
  9. Roof Racks or Hitch Cargo Carrier?

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    I'm wanting to gain extra storage capacity for long trips. The dealer installed roof rails are quite costly. A hitch cargo carrier is more reasonable. Has anybody had experience installing their own roof rails? Is a cargo carrier a good option vs roof storage? I have a '15 Evoque 4-door...

  12. 2013 vs 2014 cargo space, roof racks

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I'm on the fence about flipping my 2013 s/c for a 2014 s/c. In addition to on road performance, snow capability, and towing, I also need a lot of functionality for cargo. I've got rhino racks and a trailer hitch in use regularly, and the back is constantly full of stuff including my 2 kids...

  15. Self-Uninstall Roof Racks?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    So my RRS came with vertical roof racks and additional horizontal ones as well. I really dislike the way the horizontal ones look and have no need for them currently. I noticed a key slot in it and was wondering if I purchased the tool, if it would be as easy and unlocking it and sliding the...
