? for OEM & knockoff roof rack owners

The goal is to use a roof rack base section(not 2 sections and rail ) as a support for an amateur radio antenna installation. After looking at all the component pictures I could find it appears that a single bolt passes through the base section and pulls into the roof mounted rail. If so it also appears the base mounts in fixed positions in the rail where you remove the existing rail to roof hold down bolt. It also looks as if you can remove the cross-member that connects to the base by removing 2 bolts and that the top of the base section is concave, matching the curve of the cross-member. So are these observations correct? I do realize that the answer can be had for a hundred dollar ebay purchase but actual owner comments would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks, Robert

Re: ? for OEM & knockoff roof rack owners

Taking off the factory rails is a simple task - just get the properly sized torque wrench and loosen the 4 you can see, and the whole thing either slides forwards or backwards, and then up. From there you can see the 6 factory studs in the roof, and plan around those.

Best of luck!
