4WD Roof Racks and Accessories

4WDs often come equipped with a factory-installed rail style roof rack system. This is a great starting point from which you can add accessories to perfectly suit your active lifestyle. If youíre looking to purchase a new 4WD and an installed roof rack is an option, youíll save yourself time and money by going this route.

4WDs generally get poor gas mileage, and adding a roof rack wonít help. To avoid getting killed at the pump, go with a system that is aerodynamic and lightweight. Many of the newer roof racks are made of aluminium composite alloys that shed kilos.

Another consideration is the distribution of weight. 4WDs are already relatively top-heavy, which can lead to rollovers when turning, even at low speeds. Keep this in mind when deciding on a system; the lighter your roof rack, the better, especially if youíll be piling on heavy loads.

Rhino RackFinally, give some thought to your intended activities before making a purchase. Some roof racks are designed for tough, four wheel drive trails out in the bush, while others are constructed for hauling sports equipment long-distance over paved road. Decide on a roof rack system according to the activities youíll be pursuing.
