Custom WK2 Roof Rack

Just finished up and installed this roof rack I made.
It mounts directly to the threaded inserts in the roof.
What do you guys think?
Ripp Super Charger going in early next week.
Cant wait. Mods almost complete.

Re: Custom WK2 Roof Rack

Looks really good! I wish more manufacturers would take the initiative to make their racks lower on the roof as this one is. All the racks/baskets look so silly being 4-5" above the roof-line.

Re: Custom WK2 Roof Rack

I appreciate the kind words guys.

Thats the exact reason I made this. All others didnt look right and sat too high.
After living with it for a few days, I wish I would of made the top rail sit even lower. Prob about half the distance. Make it a bit more stream line.

Gobi racks, although expensive, make two racks the mount to the factory holes.
