  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. 2013 RRS HSE Lux - New Rails

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Happy New Year All, I installed some roof rails over the holiday break and have a few questions. I know that for this install the bolt threads are exposed, so water can possibly get into the bolt mount holes. Will these areas become rust problems eventually? In addition, does water have a path...
  4. Frontrunner Rack with L322 Factory Rails

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I've designed a clamp (4X) which will allow a Frontrunner Rack (KRG0013T) to mount onto the L322 factory fitted roof rails using Frontrunner Bracket FASS001 (4X). I have all of the parts on hand and will post pictures of the installation after the weekend. Drawing of the bracket below:
  5. Different Color (Silver/Black) OEM Roof Rails and Finishers

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Just picked up my new Range Rover in Loire Blue and I jumped the gun maybe and ordered some Silver Roof Rails and Silver Ditch Finishers. They arrived and I am not sure I like the look of the silver on the ditch finisher but the silver rails look great. Has anyone install black ditch finishers...
  6. Roof Rails Post-Purchase?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Since the roof rails aren't in the configurator, my assumption is they can be installed anytime post purchase. Can anyone confirm? Or are they port installed? The reason I ask is that I prefer the roofline without them so I'd like to wait to install them until I've gotten to a point where I...
  7. 2010-2012 Timing Chain Guide Rails replacement cost

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Few quick questions...I'm thinking about buying a 2010-2012 Supercharged RR. From what I've read here, it looks like the superchargers tend to go and the timing chain guide rails have to be replaced. 1) Can anyone give me an idea of how much the supercharger is to repair and replace? Anyone...
  8. Roof Rails and Door Handles on LWB

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Has anyone installed Roof Rails on the LWB? I just received my 2017, and want to add these rails. Is there anywhere, besides the dealer, you have gotten them? If at the dealer, how much? Any suggestions? Also, wanted to give the standard door handles a little contrast. Was debating...
  9. Roof rails

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between these two options? The top one is from the 2017 price list and the 2nd is from LRNA web site. LA5 is 1204 and the other is 847. What's the difference? I'm guessing the crossbars are a separate option?
  10. L494 Roof Rack / Without Roof Rails

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Dear All I where searching for a Roof rack without the need for the fixed rails (prefer a plain roof), and a nice finish and look (all black, aero bars). Finally I found it from "Rhino-Rack". If somebody looks also for a clean and removeable solution, here it is. I use them for my Kakak´s and...
  11. Can I install Land Rover Rails and finisher kit myself?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Anyone know how hard it is to install the landrover rails and finisher kit? At already $1600 bux just to get a rack on the car I'd hate to have to spend another $250 or whatever on the install.
  12. Roof Rails

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Are there aftermarket (such as Thule) attachments for the standard RR Sport roof to attach cross bars or do I have to purchase the RR roof rails and cross bars? Thanks, Kris

  14. Dealer/factory roof rack rails on 04 HSE

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My wife and I are packing to move out of state tomorrow, and one of my family members got me a roof mounted camper shell to mount to the top of the roof rack rails to carry extra luggage. It's pretty simple, underneath the rack there are brackets in which the roof rails slide through on the...
  15. Roof Rails

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I've got a 2016 RRS and ski season is inching closer...I am looking for a room mounted ski rack. The OEM roof rails themselves are super expensive from LR (+/- $1000). I did a quick Ebay search and it appears that there are companies selling a similar product for +/- $300. They look the same...
  16. Rooftop carrier for Evoque WITHOUT rails

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    I am retiring from the military (yay!) and preparing for my final cross country move. The Evoque has much less space than my LR2 did, so I am looking at rooftop carriers. I don't have the rails and am wondering if anyone has used one of the softside rooftop carriers. I am concerned about...

  18. Installing Roof Rails on '14 L494 ATB (Part 2)

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Ok, almost done. Once the rails are secure you just need to add the side finishing 'caps'. I read in another post these pieces didn't 'click' into place like the directions suggested and that a wooden block was necessary to seat them. What I found is you need to slide the top of this cap...
  19. Installing Roof Rails on '14 L494 ATB (Part 1)

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I finally sucked it up and decided to install the roof rails on my '14 ATB and since there have been a few questions on the install (but no videos or specifics on the installation that I could find) I thought I would post a few pictures and instructions with my install. First, as many on this...
  20. Roof Rails - snowboard and skis

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Greetings, I have a new 2015 FFRR. I go to the mountains a bit and am looking for the smartest way to get my gear up. I have a giant Thule box from my last vehicle but no way to attach it. If I want to put a ski/snowboard rack on, do I need roof rails? What is the best option? Should I get...
