ARB roof rack fit kit

Can anyone confirm which fit kit is required for an ARB roof rack on an NAS D90? As far as I can tell they don't list one on their site, but I think it requires part #3700030. I know they make one that fits as Mike Boggs has one on his D90. Here is a pic I stole from Nomar.

Anyone? Looking at this picture, the mounting brackets seem almost like a one piece design like a Hannibal that has been cut to clear the cage.

did you score an ARB rack?

I'll PM you Mike's email if you want to ask him about his mounts

I wish! I'm thinking about getting one. Its pretty cramped in the D90 with me, my girlfriend, our Husky, and even just luggage for a weekend trip. Definitely not a lot of space if we want to go camping or anything like that. I'd really prefer a tire carrier with a rack over the spare, but no one makes one that I know of, and I'd want it to open with the door.

For anyone interested, I'm pretty sure the rack on Mike's truck is 1850mm x 1350mm (part number 3800110M) and the fit kit part number is 3700030. I emailed Mike and he told me that he had to get it from ARB in Australia and that it is a Defender 110 rack. I have found the fit kit in the US, and may have found a vendor that can get the rack.

Just to update this with the actual rack I ordered... I got the 3800020M which is 1850mm x 1250mm. It is more narrow than the one for a Defender and is the size recommended for a Jeep Cherokee. I paid just under $750 (free shipping) from Quadratec.

$750 is not bad at all

While I will say ARB bumpers are not the strongest, the powdercoat has been superb.
That rack will look just as good in 10 years.

That is not including the fit kit ARB3700030 I got from 4 Wheel Parts which was $313 with free shipping.

So more like $1063 huh? (with free shipping, of course)

What is the "fit kit"...is it just the feet?
Or is there more to it?

Yeah, its just the feet. The racks are basically universal fit, you just have to get the correct feet for your application. Its certainly not cheap, but I think it is the best look on a D90 and suits my needs perfectly. If I was really a baller I would have bought the alloy version...
