Thanks.
I had always thought about just taking it out the back door, since the seal should have enough give to go around the power cord. I was just planning to run power around the headliner, then up to the roofrack that way.

Well i installed the side rails but have not got to the light bar YEAT..
in the past i have always ran a fuse block to connect all the aux things, but the best way that i can see with the WK2 is run the power down the side rails (inside the channel) a dab of RTV caulk will hold the wires down in the channel to the back and find a point of entry their. weather its through the hatch or ? The power, Might be able to be tapped off the emg flashlight in the rear ? i have not investigate it yeat. i am hoping it will drop power when the JEEP ( NOT CAR OR TRUCK ) is off... i will try to get a plan of entry SOON. but any and all suggestions would be great

Re: Anybody tried the Rocky Road Roof Rack???

Go to overland custom grill thread. I posted some pictures there, I will post some more here with some details of how I wire the lights.

There's more info about this in other jeep forum as well.

Re: Anybody tried the Rocky Road Roof Rack???

I have had them in mine for almost a year, and really don't notice any wind noise.

Re: Anybody tried the Rocky Road Roof Rack???

I have had a Rocky Road roof rack installed for some time. It's definitely one sturdy rack! I really like the look of the side rails, but not so much the crossbars, which I also found a bit limiting for what I wanted to do--carrying the occasional sheet of plywood, lumber, kayaks, etc.

I had a set of 58" Thule bars lying around from a previous vehicle, and found that the Thule Crossroad 450 railing foot mounts work very well for mounting the Thule bars on the RRO side rails, and are easy to install. I have a 40" spread between bars.

With the sturdiness of the RRO side rails, you should also be able to safely exceed Thule's recommended weight limit on the crossbars, within reasonable limits and with a properly balanced load, of course.

I like the 58" Thule bars on the Jeep. They protrude out from the side rails a bit, but not far enough to hit your head on. And their positions on the front and rear of the side rails are BEHIND the front and rear doors, so again, no potential for head contact while getting into or out of the vehicle. I'm very pleased with this set-up.

There is a bit of wind noise, but it's not objectionable. If it becomes an irritation on the next long trip, I'll get the wind fairing.

Rack Attack offers a 10% discount and free shipping. They're not cheap, however.
$170.95 for the mounts and $53.95 for the 4 locks, if you want them. The crossbars, of course, are extra.

What sort of weight do they hold in compared to the standard set?
