WTF is going on with my roof ? fml
 
I installed Srt8 Rails, and one of them would not sit flush, I also noticed that the screw was crooked. I took it off and saw this. (pictures will be at the bottom) How do I fix this or work around it. Is it going to leak or f-up my jeep. :mad:

It looks like something heavy was tight to the roof rail so tight, that damaged the roof.

Is there anything that I can do to fix it myself. Im guessing that it happened before I got it. I didnt realize that it was so diffrent until I tried to put the new rails on. So what should I do about it? Or what can I do

That looks like someone was using the old rail to pull themselves up...maybe to wash the roof? Or the previous owner had a monkey for a kid.

I don't know jack about this particular issue, but I bet if you use some rtv around the captive nut and then installed your cover and used a bolt with a flatter head, no one would ever know. The key would be to seal it so that water doesn't get to it and rust it to death.

Yeah, thats what Im worried about, I was going to cut the bolt with a drimel to shorten it, and then go from there. Or do I need to just take the headliner out and reinforce the things in general. I wanted to be able to switch back to my stock rails to cary my kayak some times.

I think plenty of folks have a sense of humor...its just hard to communicate from a keyboard:thumbsup:
