Roof Rack wanted: 97 D90 SW

Hey Guys,
I'm getting ready for snowboard season and was looking into roof racks.... I was wondering what my options were, and if anyone could post a picture of their set up.

I have seen the Safety Devices, Hannibal, and also the Urban Offroad (Safety Device Style), but I was wondering what other options there may be on the market?

I run a Yakima Fullswing Snowboard rack off the hitch, and would like to load my bags and gear up top.


Thanks for all info and help.



Michael

Anyone running a smaller rack that just mounts to the front roll bar on a SW?
If so, can you please post pictures... I'm not sure if I need all the space of a full set up.

Thanks!


Michael

Stmpede, do you use that one personally yourself.
I'd like to know how it stands up durability wise..

I saw the ECR custom fabs the 1/3 basket that looks like a mini safety devices rack...BUT they won't sell it and ship to my neck of the woods

Best,


Michael

Mike, did you ask Derek at Urban Offroad if he can fab up a shorter version?

Ahh.. I have not.
But I will be making that call tomorrow.... I fear this price will not be cheap, but then again I did purchase a rare D90, hehe

Let us know what it cost, you'd think it would only be a third the cost of a full rack...

There is nothing cheap about the SD or UO racks, but if you just want something inexpensive you could get cross-bars and something like these...

Andrew,
Thank you much for taking the time to post up those options. Price wise they look great, and even some of those hefty pack type look nice for quick stowing and then I can remove after I'm done so I can fit in the parking structures


I surprised that more D90 owners aren't posting what they are using....

Is the most common system the Safety Devices unit?

I don't have any plans for major offroad safari, but I definitely wanna hit up Mammoth and Tahoe this year for snowboarding...

The SD is probably the most common but also the most difficult to find. They are no longer made so you have to find a used one that someone is willing to part with. The UO is a nice rack and he will customize it for you in any way that you want but a lot of people are die hard about the SD and the UO is similar but not identical. The Hannibal is a pretty nice looking rack too, but I also love the SD rack. I haven't seen many of the small racks in use at all. The other common choice is the Brownchurch but personally I don't care for the design on the Defender. It is nice on the Series trucks but I just don't think it looks quite right on the Defenders.

Yeah I have notice that it isn't exactly easy to find pictures of D90's w/ racks other than the SD, and UO racks.
I'm going to call Derek tomorrow and see what I'm looking at for the 1/3 style and if the price is right, I can just drive to him since he's very close.
I do like the fact that the Hannibal uses factory holes, so I don't have to do anymore drilling, that's a bonus for sure. Do you know if the Hannibal damages the rain gutters at all?
I was reading up on them, and I like how the floor allows you to stand on them, and even add the tent, not that camping is dangerous here in Southern California... he he

Thumbs up Urban Offroad

Michael,

I went to Derek's shop a few months ago. We spoke about creating a 1/2 basket for the top of my ST D90. He was very cool about it and said he could customize the length of the basket as needed. Just add the crossbars and brackets and you are good to go. He can even fabricate built-in jerry can holders, highlift mounts, etc. if you are interested.

I was ready to pull the trigger, but had a few other issues that came up and money had to go other places.... I should be back in the market in a few months.

Let me know if you pull the trigger. I would love to see how it turns out!

Shoot me an email if you have any other questions!
