What kind of roof do I have and what type of rack do I need?
Naked / Bare Roof
A vehicle with a naked roof or bare roof lacks tracks and rails. With a naked roof, you need a clip kit, leg kit and crossbars to create a complete roof-rack system. The installation process may vary slightly for each vehicle.
Factory Installed Raised Side Rails
These are most common on minivans and SUV's. They run front to back on your vehicle's roof and can provide attachment points for an aftermarket roof rack system. This design requires a leg kit and crossbars.
Factory Installed Flush Rails
These rails run front to back on your vehicle and are without any space between the rail and the roof. There is typically a inner and/or outer groove that allows connection of a crossbar. To mount a roof rack on this type of roof system, you will need a clip kit, leg kit and crossbars.
Factory Installed Flat Tracks/Fix Points
Fixed connection points are factory threaded points typically located on the outer edge of the roof at toe points on each side. The connection points are usually under a roof trim piece, a removable panel or flip up panel. There are two types of fixed points: Crossbar Overhang and Crossbar Terminating, which both require leg kits and crossbars.
Raingutters exist on some late model vehicle's but are generally found on full sized cargo and passenger vans and require leg kits, gutters and crossbars.
