I have a question about roof racks for people for our SUV.
We have factory roof racks that are quite skinny. Unfortunately the only way we seem to be able to widen them is by purchasing a full kit from one of the big players, which is out of our budget for the purpose.
Basically we want 58" bars to just somehow magically fit onto the current crossbars. Is this in anyway possible. I'm guessing it would involve some kind of MacGuyver type skills. Possibly some kind of coupling device? It would need to be able to support a cargo box and surfboards.
Anyone have any experience with stuff like that? Is it a bad idea?
