Re: Anybody tried the Rocky Road Roof Rack???
I like the look of the Rocky Road rack as well, but from the pics, it doesn't look like the bar spread is any greater than the factory rack (about 28.5") I really would like a spread closer to 48" for carrying a canoe or sea kayak. At the moment the only thing available with that spread is the Rack Attack custom rail system with Yakima or Thule crossbars. (Moose has a thread with pics on installing one with Yakima bars.) Unfortunately, it's quite expensive. The Rocky Road system fits the stock WK2 roof rails, and it looks to me like they could lengthen their rails (still using the factory rails) to accommodate a greater crossbar spread. Their prices seem reasonable, and this would certainly be a lot cheaper way to go than the Rack Attack custom rail system. Contact Rocky Road and see if they would be willing to lengthen their rails (for a price, of course). Then let us all know what you find out.
