New Roof Rack

Just wanted to share pics of my new roof rack from Urban Offroad in So. Cal. I have a 2011 WK2 that I use for my daily commuter, as well as for getting me in to the backcountry for camping, backpacking, and other mischief.

I found the company on Ebay but dealt directly with them since I'm in So.Cal. According to their business card, their web URL is www.urbanoffroad.us.

Here's pics of the rack on my WK2.

Thanks.

That's exactly what i want and I've seen it before online but unfortunately it would cost a fortune to ship down here to Australia.

Enjoy.

Re: New Roof Rack

That's really nice. Couldn't find much on their website. Do you happen to have the link for ebay?

Apparently UO is not running the ad on ebay anymore.

However, I uploaded a picture of the full rack on my photobucket page if you want to check it out too.

Re: New Roof Rack

^ Also wondering about wind noise but it looks great! I like how it sits nice and tight to the roof. Most of the other racks seem either too long or short but this one suits the WK2 perfectly. Very nice choice

I had to drive about 80 miles on the freeway after I had it installed. There was some humming/whistling, but once I turned my radio on, it was not too noticeable. However, the next day, my wife commented on the humming sound when we were going about 30mph through our neighborhood, so....

I bought an aftermarket fairing for it (I'll add more pics tomorrow), and all the wind noise is gone. Believe me, I was pretty skeptical, but even at freeway speeds (70-80mph), there is no more humming/whistling.

Thanks for the inquires. I'll post more pics tomorrow with the fairing.

SOrry for the delay...pics of the Inno fairing now uploaded.

Thanks guys.
