    HEY what's UP all,

    I have a question I wanted onions on before i go and spend a lot of cash on this and ship it all the way to Hawaii. what do you think is better overall.

    now before you answer i have looked at both extensively things im worried about:

    • Clearance to wash the roof
    • ability to bolt on platform for photography
    • and ease of removal for cleaning purposes (loosing bars to slid them away to clean areas)
    remember i live in Hawaii and cost for shipping is going to add about $200.00 to purchase. please if you have or have had in the past either of these systems your opinion is important to my purchase.

    I have experience with both companies and did not have an issue with either one. Both have good customer service IMO. I do not however have any of the cross bars you are looking at, but have a full LFD rack and it is high quality. Had a few issues with some wrong parts that were sent and LFD handled it professionally and very quickly, next day airing what I needed on their dime.

    I don't think it would be too hard to use a rag under the bars for washing the roof. Especially on the LFD rails unless you get the wide rails like the Rago design. I ceramic wax coated my roof before putting the rack on. I also like the hole design better on the LFD rails but that is subjective. Really I don't think you could go wrong with either one, just get the best deal you can. Good luck with your decision.
