    Default Roof Rack Opinions

    Good morning all! Quite a dreary one here in Louisiana... On to my questions. I've always enjoyed to look of a simple roof rack. Nothing that is really functional, mainly just 2 parallel roof rails for aesthetic reasons. Has anyone found any that look decent? I like the ones on the 2011 crew cab Silverado. I'm not too sure about the fit on my extended cab. Here's a picture of the ones I'm partial to.


    I think it would fit on an extended cab truck just fine. I'm not too sure about the look though...
    GM Part# 19166253 btw.

    While browsing a Duramax forum I found this picture.

    Seeing it from the side really reinforces my opinion in it fitting my extended cab. And just to clear it up, I'm just interested in the part that attaches to the truck. I'm not interested in the cross bars.

    My mother always taught me that if I had nothing good to say ... say nothing. If I hadn't been raised that way I'd tell you what I think of OEM roof racks...

    Well if anything, the roof rails give you the functionality to add other items should the need arise. We also carry a full line of racks and baskets, would any of these work for you?

    Can't do it. Would kill the looks of the truck. But that's just my opinion.

    Love or hate roof racks the one thing that comes to mind for me when thinking of adding a roof rack is the fact that be it a roof rack or a sun roof I've never had good luck putting holes in the top of my vehicles, it always ended up with me fighting a leak of some sort.
    With that said I saw an extracab Chevy with a factory style rack on the highway last week. It was the first one I'd seen so I just assumed it was a factory offering and I hadnt seen many of them.
    It looked a little long and my immpression was it'd look better if you could take a few inchs out of it.
