Anyone with roof rack connections, discounts, or selling?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've looked all over the net and can't find an inexpensive roof ski carrier/box/rack system. They all cost 150+ for the crossbars/feet and at least another 250 for the box. There's no way I can fork out 400 bucks. Does anyone know of any local companies (Utah) making less expensive enclosed roof carrier systems?

DID you check eBay??? I find that hard to believe. I got a Yakima rack system on there last year for $50 complete,load bars, feet, ski rack attachment, 4 other clips to align boxes, etc. and clips for a honda accord (I did have to buy new clips because I have a Mazda 626.) I opted to for-go the box and put my skis in a bag right on the rack.

I don't know what you need, but here are 2 examples. There are also some seperately listed items and others that I did not look at. If you know what you need look throught the 14 plus pages of listings, you may be pleasantly surprised.

The operative word as I see it is enclosed. If, however, you're just looking for a rack; what kind of car does it need to fit? Does this car have rain gutters or no?

More information please.

Thanks guys. Yes, I did check Ebay right off the bat. No boxes, just racks. I've had a rack for years and need to switch to a box. Plus, I bet the shipping on an 8x3x2 box from Ebay would be outrageous.

IG- The vehicle has no gutters--just a 54" track mounted on each side of the roof. Most places want over 150 bucks just to set me up with 4 feet and two crossbars. A retail box is at least another 250 on top of that! It's ridiculous. Anyway, if you guys know of something, I'd be much obliged.

MTBYKR- I'll contact you today.

Thanks

Try Play it Again sports, pre-ebay I had good luck finding racks there, I think there are a couple in SLC. Or honestly I bet if you go to the pawn shops on state street you will find what you want.
