Does anyone have a roof rack? Do I need to get an expensive one or will a 100-160 dollar one do fine? I'm not going to be carrying to much on it if anything at all. I'm just wanting it for mostly looks and maybe mounting an LED bar or two. Anyone got any pointers?

Here is a link to my $100 roof rack & light mod post. It worked so well we bought second one for our 2000 Infiniti Q45, (R50 Pathfinder) Ranch truck. We are even thinking of buying a third one to mount on the hood, as the ranch truck seldom makes it onto a real road. It is very strong. Much stronger than the vehicle's crossbar mounts.

Hi there. The roof rack bars will allow you to get creative. I made my own tray, there is a clip here.

It might motivate you to have a go yourself.

I need to modify mine a little as I've bought an open canoe which is a little too wide for the current set up.

Very nice video & rack! I like the low profile. Mine is right at 84 inches high with lift and keeps me out of some parking garages.
