Anyone seen RAILS for a roof rack. i saw an Xb on the freeway this Am - he had THULE racks but I noticed that they were not jammed in the door frame - He had RAILS on the roof. looked lots cleaner - and the racks could slide towards the front or back.
Or are theyre any other Rails that can be put on - my concern is that they mess up the interior - dont they ? if you bolt rails onto the roof aftermarket.

You can get the mounting rails from Yakima. They actually screw into your roof, which is why most of us are not using them.

Yeah, I just got my whole "permanent mount" Yakima done at racknroad. It's rails are drilled into the roof. I purposely wanted this setup. I love this car and plan on keeping it as long as possible and a permanent roof rack is a much sturdier setup. Ended up costing me $1000 but i got the top of the line stuff including the new "sprocket rocket" rails which are expensive but are the best rails on the market by far. My bikes are worth $3000 and $4000 respectively so i didn't want to take any shortcuts. Besides, if something does happen where i'm not keeping the car, I can easily remove everything but the roof rails. Me likey.

I'll try to do that but it might be a week or so. My car is at one shop putting cruise control and jdm fog lights and then as soon as i get it back, into another shop to install all da sterio equip. Then I'll be set for the summer.

Try to PM MINIBANGBUS for info on those rails. He did it himself and they look great! I think its a universal rack with a nice xB fit.
