Installing Roof rack on 1994 safari?

Installing Roof rack on 1994 safari?

Postby gbanga [OP] » March 16th 2009, 3:15pm

Hi everyone, we just bought our 1st safari and can't wait to do some tripping in it. We have some yakima roof racks set for rain gutter mounting, round bar with a thule roof box on them. We want to put roof racks on the van and right now there is nothing on there to mount them.
any ideas on what is the best / cheapest method without drilling into the roof etc.
cheers for any ideas g :chevy:

Yeah that link doesn't help me much, thanks though. I like what he's done but i'm looking for a rack that I don't need to drill into the roof for. If i do need to drill the roof i need info on where the best place to drill is and how it is done properly to avoid leaking, rust and provide the most strength as we'll be putting a bit of weight on it.

Howa re the factory racks that some come with installed?
Yakima etc don't seem to have anything for the shallow gutter the Safari has

Cheers again for any help
