After custom fitting hundreds of rooftop tents to popular roof racks over the past 7 years - we've designed our own racks (or roof top tent mounting platforms) specifically to  allow these tents to be fitted over the cabs of most Dual Cab Utes.  The Reasons we have done this are below:

DETAILS :

Tough Touring Dual Cab Over Cab Roof Racks

  • Lowest profile on the market

  • M8 Bolts all-round. No welds to tear 

  • Unique design means all bolts are accessible from beside the vehicle

WARNING WHAT TO LOOK FOR BEFORE  FITTING ROOF RACKS TO MODERN DUAL CAB UTES
 

Later Model Vehicles commonly Have three variations in Over Roof  rack mounts from factory: Before buying any roof rack its a good idea to pop off the rubber seal where the rack mounts and have a look at what fixing points are on your vehicle for your rack to bolt into. 

The Best scenario is m8 bolt holes already in place in the roof rail cavity - typically there will be 3 pairs of threaded inserts in most cars, but there are variations... (Listed below)

1 : No Bolt Holes and NO STUDS
 

Some modern vehicles come from factory without any mounting holes at all for roof racks - This is usually because they have filled the entire roof cavity with Air bags. - DO NOT DRILL THROUGH THE ROOF SKIN WITHOUT CAREFULL EXAMINATION FIRST - AS AIR BAGS CAN BE DESTROYED OR YOU COULD HIT AN EXPLOSIVE CHARGE.

To fit a roof rack to a vehicle without factory mount holes - The roof Lining should be removed and carefull measurements made to find suitable positions for drilling through the rail skin for insertion of DOME NUTS - Thread OUT into the air bag cavity. Dome nut heads will allow the air bag to deploy without puncturing, and also provide an incredibly strong mount point for your rack - We sell a 'Reversed Dome nut' roof rack hardware pack to do this - Listed here -

2. There are already 4 x M8 Bolt holes already visibile each side.
Excellent - You can mount rack feet straight to the provided bolt holes and then our 1750mm roof rail roof rack.
