Re: Flaunt your Rack!

Happy 4th everyone!! So I have a big trip to Canada coming up and am wanting to see some roof racks loaded up. I'm interested to see peoples set-ups and tricks to loading up a rack. Also any pros or cons to loading the rack up a certain way would also be great!!...
Bring on the pics! Ha

Re: Flaunt your Rack!

For everyone with them rola racks... do you need special mounting for the rack if you have the factory cross bars... and does anyone make axe/shovel mounts for these?

Nope the factory cross bars works well. And of course you can get ride of those stock hand knobs and mpunt the hardwarw upsidedown to mount the rola lower for a more low profile look.

Re: Flaunt your Rack!

Lots of great information in this thread. I recently purchased a 2010 WK and it only has the factory raised side rails. I'm looking into a roof rack since I do a good amount of traveling. Would I be better off buying factory cross bars and an aftermarket rack or aftermarket cross bars w/ a rack? I'm open for any brand suggestion but I'm liking the Rolas so far.

Re: Flaunt your Rack!

WOW Jay, you really know how to load up the Rola. do I see a Spider cargo net holding everything down? how do you like it, is it really worth getting one if i already have good tie down straps?

Yes, get a net! I have the cargo net made by Yakima. I can stuff tons of crap up there and throw the net over it. Even after the net is on you can stretch open squares of it and stuff more in. It costs around $35.
