LR4 Low profile Roof Rack

Can anyone recommend a low profile roof rack for the LR4?

The stepped roof makes flat racks already look a bit high, not sure I like the look.

Rhino seems to be pretty good but the risers make it really stand up high. Wonder if there are different risers than the locking ones they provide.

This is my personnel favorite the Pro-Speed. I am switching to this from my Baja Rack.

I love the look of that Pro-speed. I see though it says "requires short roof rails", I have the long ones, think I'd have to get short rails or could I just remove the extended portion?

One thing I like about the Rhino rack is how much metal there is on top. I get a lot of hail at my office in the spring, a big metal rack will likely make me feel better about incoming storms. However I'd prefer less weight and road noise.

You can add the floor panels to the Pro-Speed which would probably offer a fair amount of protection.

Not sure on the extended vs short rails but I would guess if you remove the extension you would be good to go.

I love the look of the prospered and the way it hugs the roof is awesome.

Yeah that prospeed is probably the best looking one I've seen for the LR4.

I'm also leaning towards something I can take on and off easily, Rhino racks, especially the shorty ones, seem to meet that, but man I still think they're ugly.
