Aftermarket roof rails

Anyone ever tried roof rails like this?

https://www.prolineracks.com/perrycr...siderails.html

I'm not really worried that much about durability because I'd be installing them for looks not functionality. Also what size would you get for 1st Gen wagon? 58" or 68"? 48" is too short and 78" too long.

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

I plan on taking my factory pieces off in the not too distant future. If you would like them, you can have them for the price of shipping.

That's so generous of you, thanks! I imagine though the international shipping would be pretty astronomical for a package so long??

I come across these on occasion in the wrecking yard.


Are you looking for the early or later style?
The style switched in 2004. Sometime between 05/04 and 08/04
OEM roof rails were only available from the factory and never sold as an accessory.

Early 2004 (54" total length, 38" usable)



Late 2004



I prefer the later (Euro) style but alas mine is equipped otherwise.




Thanks @dave in edmonds for the pic.
