Roof Rail Hack | Extended Roof Rails

 

 

Made longer roof rails now the basket fits up front where we want it…plenty of room for the rooftop tent once it is completed.

Simple hack,

  • Acquire a full length roof rail from parts vehicle
  • Measure from front before roof slopes to front of current rail
  • Cut new extension rail to that length(should be less than half)
  • Cut 5mm rod and use for alignment pins
  • Slide extension into current rail
  • Measure width to keep rails parrellel
  • Cut rubber washers from inner tube
  • Screw extensions down with self tapping screws
