Since it wasn’t a priority, I was waiting for a deal. Suits me fine.

where are those roof rails from?. they look remarkably similar to what I see on the cabin roof of sail boats.

Peter,

As I recall I salvaged these off a late 90s Mazda van, pretty heavy duty.

Thanks Mr Wrench, i don’t know how much use it will get, but it will be used when bouncing around the trails some.

Roof racks look quite at home on our cars. A full basket would have helped for all the times my car was stuff sacked to the ceiling!
