Front Runner Outfitters has been making roof racks and other overland accessories for years in South Africa. Front Runner dedication to achieve the best products for overland travel has earned a reputation for quality products that last. Front Runner Products are used on the famous Endecker Gwagen, perhaps the ulitmate Overland G.
Front Runners aluminum roof racks are engineered with modern vehicle design in mind and offer strength, lightness and aerodynamics unmatched by any other roof rack in the industry. With the unique patented locking slat system all accessories and everything else you decide to put on the rack can be bolted to the flat slats. This provides the most convenient solution for rattle free, secure, and safe travel.
All Front Runner Racks are constructed with a commitment to quality in the Front Runner factory in South Africa. Each rack is engineered to meet the exacting demands of professional expeditioneers who must navigate extreme road conditions day in and day out.
The slats of the rack have t-slots on both sides, allowing the fitment of accessories to the underside of the rack as well. The legs also take advantage of the t-slots, allowing flexible choices for positioning the rack on the rooftop. The legs bolt onto the t-slots in the rack, and firmly secure the rack to the roof top by clamping on to the vehicle’s gutter.

I've had and looked at many racks and the Front Runner is my favorite. The rack comes very well packaged and took very little time to assemble. You can add slats to the rack and make a solid surface on the roof of the vehicle if desired. Unlike some racks this one requires assembly and it's important to make sure you get it good and square before the corner pieces will go on easily. Measure diagonally because while it may look square having it perfect will pay off when installing corners and mounting it. A rubber mallet was handy as it was a good snug rattle free fit getting the slats in the side tracks.
