Cross Bar Roof Rack System with Factory Rails?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

A few weeks ago we got ourselves a 2014 Titanium LWB and have been doing a lot of research regarding roof rack utilizing the factory rails and would like to be able to keep them if I can. 

 

I've read that the Yakima Railgrab system will work, but have found conflicting information if there's enough clearance to actually use attachments, which for me would defeat the purpose of the rack. I plan to use it for kayaks, bikes and potentially basket for weekend camping trips and other adventures and don't plan to use it for anything too heavy like construction material. 

 

I've found there's options out there if I want to remove the factory silver rails, drop the headliner and bolt something down...but I'd rather not do that for a few reasons if I can avoid it.  If you've found a solid options here, please share the specifics and any pictures if possible.


Thanks a bunch.

Justin

Plenty of roof rack talk here. Use search and knock yourself out.

 

Here's just one thread:

Yes thanks I've searched here quite a bit. I'm looking for verification on true usability of a rack WITH the factory rails (which there's conflicting information in that post).
