Has anyone had any problems with this type of system.

Apparently they are pop riveted too the roof. For my vehicle it will give me an exta 30kg load, 80kg opposed to 50kg.

I'm just not sure about the pop rivets, anyone got them.

I have seen them let go and peel the rails/track back, but that was only one instance.
It seems to me that the roof panel is the thing that takes the weight rather than structural rails, eg gutters.
The rivets are Sealed rivets, ie. sealed at the internal end.

I've done some looking around my self, and as soon as the wife let's me I'm putting them on the Surf. They seem to be the best way to go if you don't have gutters. The door ones I'm just not sure about, I'd rather have something stronger. IMHO go the rivets and tracks.

Dean,

I have fitted a few, and none have come back. With all roof racks they can get ripped off because of low objects or over loading.

With some vehicles there is no option but the track mount.

Gday Dean,I didnt like the idea of rivets either so I used smallS/S bolts,nylok nuts and S/S large washers under the roof(had to remove the roof skin),no problems so far with plenty of rough road trips done.

I've got them on my ute, with a strengthened bar on the canopy and have had no problems at all. I carry two fairly heavy ladders all the time plus pipes, lengths of steel etc on occasions. I'd recommend them to anybody but get them installed by somebody who does it all the time and you'll be fine.

They are the standard dealer fitted items on jackaroos. two cross bars, track full length each side, are made by rola, all usual rola goodies fit, no movement or problems with mine as yet. ( i only carry light stuff on top anyway)
