  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...

  4. L494 (2019) roof rail issue

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi, just had the roof rails installed on my 2019 RRS L494. Now, when trying to install the actual rack, I notice that the rails' shape, taking into account the lengthy plastic part covering the screws ("N" and "P" in the instruction manual), does not leave enough "depth" to fasten the rack...

    I want to put a couple crossbars on my ‘93 LWB using Thule rain gutter mount feet. They come in a few sizes- I want to go as low as possible. The two options are a 5” rise and a 8” rise. Has anyone had luck/clearance with the lower foot?

  9. 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...
  10. moon vs sun roof

    Range Rover Classic
    Our 93 is now our donor vehicle and I'm wondering if anyone has installed a moon glass sun roof in a old non moon roof classic. After many years our 91 sunroof rubber has failed to stay on the sunroof lip. If the moon roof is a straight swap, then in it goes. Appreciate any info and thanks.

  17. 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...

    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.
  20. Roof rack cross bars

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Anyone know the length, tip to tip, of their L494 cross bars? Are they interchangeable with cross bars for a 12-15 Evoque? Looks like the clamping mechanism is the same, but I’m curious if the Evoque bars are long enough to fit a RRS and if anyone has tested the fitment ??
