Looking for D90 cover

Does anyone know where to source a cover for a d90 that has a full factory safari rack? I need to leave my truck outside for a bit and Id like to be able to cover it. Surely someone has a cover, or knows where to find one.

California Car Covers. Give them a call and they'll make you a custom one. I have one and have been very pleased with it.

I've used this for the last 8 years or so (on my second one):
http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9774ABP.cfm

Fits with a roof rack, but just exposes the tail lights and lower part of spare tire.

I'm actually in need of a new one so interested to see what the california cover runs.

I recommend calcarcover.com as well. The superweave runs around $300, but it provides good protection and airflow. When you order, they may ask for a few measurements to accommodate the safari rack and other add-ons. Be sure they add a couple of inches to the total height measurement so you can create a pitch and avoid having water accumulate in the safari rack. I use 4 buckets under the cover to create a pitch so I don't have to bail water off the truck every time it rains.

I have a California Car cover and it is great - highly recommend one.One thing though with the full rack - you need to have a car cover that goes under it not over. If not, the cover will hold any rain that comes down... well enough rain to fill a 6'x5'x 6" area.

Anyone have a cover go over the rack bucket? If so how do you prevent the water capture issue??

Put a basketball in the rack before you put it on. That should provide enough pitch for the water to run off.

Sorry to rehash an old thread, but I just ordered a custom cover from California Car Cover. I'll post a picture once I get it in. Jason at Cal Car Cover was great to work with. I sent him all my measurements for the ARB bar and my top rack. Hoping this comes out looking great.
