Ridged roof

So i did a search and everything i came up with, i think the poster assumed i knew about the ridged roof. Is there an issue with the ridged roof and installing a roof rack or am i reading some of the posts wrong? I have a ridged roof and want a roof rack. I am also in england for the next couple years and if i need to switch it out, would rather do it here then wait till i get to america with less selection.

Thanks in advance.

david

The issue with a ribbed roof is with a Safety Device roll cage. I don't think there is a problem with most roof racks fitting a ribbed roof.

Some roof racks will have a problem. You need to check.

Does anyone know if the standard legs on a Front Runner slimline poses an issue with the ribbed roof?

I reckon there is one SD cage that works with Ribbed roofs: Land Rover Defender 90 300Tdi Station Wagon Multi Point Bolt-in Roll Cage | Safety Devices – Experts In Automotive Safety Solutions
