Re: Roof Rack or No Roof Rack ?

I like the grab handles that fold in. Pop up if you need them.

Re: Roof Rack or No Roof Rack ?

wow you guys are nuts and this poll is flawed lol people are voting yes to roofrack because they actually need it but this poll is stricly for looks because obviously if you need a roofrack you going to vote yes roofrack

I still can't get over how much nicer and cleaner the truck looks like with no roof rack...

my mind is blown
unless you have needs and you must have a roofrack I can understand that,
but for looks clean roof looks 1000000x times nicer

Re: Roof Rack or No Roof Rack ?

You are the one who asked for opinions! Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. This is an individual thing. No big deal. Get one if you want it. Leave it off if you don't. Then you have the look YOU want.

Re: Roof Rack or No Roof Rack ?

I had a roof rack on other vehicles and in the winter months it was a PITA to remove the snow and ice from the roof.One time I was slowing down to stop at a red light and a sheet of snow and ice slid down from the roof and covered my whole windshield.Now that was scary.

I like the look of RL with the rack. Whether I use it or not, I just think it looks good. Neither right nor wrong. Just my opinion.

Re: Roof Rack or No Roof Rack ?

i personally would use t but t does not not look good at all, it messes with the lines of the truck.

^^^
Tell us what you really think about your old roof rack - don't hold back.

I prefer the look without. Then again, I have no need for a rack and it probably lowers MPG a bit.

Re: Roof Rack or No Roof Rack ?

The 'Demo' Ridgeline had a OEM roof rack and it made wind noise during my test drive. Thus I opted out in getting one and my Ridgeline is much quieter.

Occasionally I do transport a 16' canoe and I use Yakima's Drydock for those times.

The rest of the time, quieter and better mpg. imho

If you take the rack off, how significant is the mpg change? Also if you take the rack off, where do you get the two long black strips that go into the recess in the roof top? How expensive are they?
