Re: Anybody tried the Rocky Road Roof Rack???
It looks like the adventure rack is a complete unit that you bolt up to the side rails, so you would need to remove the original crossbars, if you purchased them initially.
I just ordered the rails and crossbars. They indicated that they had a set in production already, so hope to have it in a couple of weeks. I'll pass along my impressions when I install it.
UPDATE: I received the rails and crossbars yesterday (5/22) and installed them today. Pretty straightforward, although instructions could be a bit clearer regarding removing the factory rails, and then the rails from the plastic housings, in order to slide the RR rails into the slots before attaching everything back to the roof. But its easy enough to figure out, just takes a bit of time as with any first-time project. It's certainly one very sturdy set-up! I set my crossbars 37" apart to fit a fiberglass roof box I have, but I think the spread could go to 39," or possibly even to 40" if necessary.
Has anyone tried their rock rail/superslider set-up yet? They're just over half the price of the factory sliders, and apparently MUCH easier to install. They also have a step area in the rear, primarily for access to the roof rack, which the factory units do not. I may order them in the future, but it would be good to hear comments from anyone who has installed them.
