Roof racks on defenders bolted down?

List,

Are roof racks on defenders usually bolted down in the gutter? I'm
asking because I've been proposed one that does. It's a bit old but in
good shape apart from some of the legs being slightly bent.

Cheers,

Fred

They usually clamp around the gutter but I had a heavy-duty one made
once that bolted through the gutter, worked very well too.


Regards.

Re: Roof racks on defenders bolted down?

we had a brownchurch on that bolted on to the gutter. worked very well. The
new on I made (ladder type rack) bolts at the front as I have 4 lights on it
but the back part I made as a clamp on so I could remove it when not needed.

The unknown roofrack I have on my D110 is from a D90 and it just clamps to
the gutter, I have had up to 70kg on there with no problems. I haven't seen
one that bolts to the gutter, but I haven't been looking either.

The one I've got for sale with the roof tent in the post above bolts
therough the gutter, but he weight actually keeps it down quite well. I
drove back from Trentham and to work for a week before I got round to
bolting it down.
Cheers, John

Mine's bolted to the gutter, is floored in marine ply, carries 4 lights up
front and 2 at the back and survived whacking a large tree branch on its
front l/h edge. It just moved back two inches and once all the bolts were
relaxed it slid back into place without a worry.
