Expedition Roof Rack
Just thought I would throw this one out there.
A buddy and me are thinking of forming a small company to manufacture an expedition type roof rack similar to the original Land Rover expedition rack but at a fraction of the price, probably around the $650 mark.
I have cut and pasted some info from a draft flyer. Any interest out there?
The Antero Roof Rack for the Land Rover Discovery is built from strong 16 gauge, 1” diameter steel tube, MIG welded, with a tough powder coat finish. This roof rack will give years of dependable use.
Designed and manufactured to be a practical and sturdy load carrier, the Antero Roof Rack is styled to follow the classic rooflines of the Land Rover Discovery.
Two versions are available, a low profile model for use when the original factory roof rack has been removed, and a regular model which allows mounting over the original factory 3 bar roof rack. Both offer almost 30 square feet of storage space. Compare the price and features of the Antero Roof Rack with similar roof racks, we are sure you will be impressed with the value for money.
Attachment is by 8 gutter mounts, together they spread the load over a wider area, compared with other systems that have only 4 or 6 mounting points.
The side rails are 6” deep, compared with only 4” on some other models. This allows for greater load stability.
In addition to the standard 4 front and 2 rear lamp mounts, the Antero Roof Rack can be supplied with attachments for a Hi-Lift Jack mount, spare wheel carrier, jerry can mounts, CB antennae and sand rail mounts. A powder coated aluminum diamond plate floor is available. Limb riser attachments are also available.
