SRT Roof Rails
 
I think I'm gonna order some SRT 8 roof rails to replace my not gonna be used roof rack on my Overland. Anyways how hard is it gonna be to transplant these things? I'm always up for a challenge on my vehicles bu tI ain't trying to break nothing in the process either. Any advice from yall would be greatly appreciated.

easy. 2 torx bolts at each corner. reuse same hardware. might want to put some pipe tape on the bolts when reinstall. factory puts something on them to protect against leaks.

Anybody have any good pics of them installed? I'm not sure that I'll ever use my roofrack and anything to make this brick a little more 'aerodynamic' (fwy speeds) may be worth considering, if the price is right :)

look for a pic of ANY srt8. or other GC without a roof rack. because the holes are there regardless, all GCs will have one or the other.

i found a close up....and these are painted to match this srt8 but you get the idea. they come black plastic from the stealer.

Nice, thanks for the ideas. What do they usually go for? Bet they usually are body color (I'll look around now), although wonder if black would look good on a silver. It's too bad they don't have a cap to put over the bolts, to not worry about standing water/leaks. Probably not a big issue, but this darn Jeep is making me thing to much now :D

Well I bought stugots so when i get them I'll post some before and after pics for the crowd that isn't sure what they'll look like on a stock platform. Personally I think it'll make it look more streamline without the stock rack. I've come to the decision that I'm gonna try and make mine a good balance with offroad and street. I guess thisll be the first body mod so here I go. Should b gettin them within a week
