Not really digging the Disco rack on a D90 but that Xterra rack they make is sweet.

As if the standard rack wasn't top heavy enough. Plus, it's damn ugly.

damn shame -seems like they could have come a lot closer to the genuine one and better tubing design

Aesthetics? Creative license? Extra tie-down points?

Does look a lot like a Discovery roof rack on a D90.
