Loving the Front Runner roof rack I had more on more and more as time passes. It has a Tepui rooftop tent on top of it now. I have a big LED light bar on the front of it and smaller LED lights on the sides and back. Loving the whole set up















I had a Rola roof basket on the factory crossbars before this

That is a Front Runner stainless steel camp table in the back slid under the rack. They make brackets to hold it. Great space saver. They have tons of accessories for it for carrying just about anything

@katsfood Dude that rack and rooftop tent set up is legit! The auxiliary lights and storage for the camp table is also sick. Never heard of the company before. Gotta check them out!! I was going to ask how it fairs in the winter (with rust, etc) but saw you're in Cal.

Not to change the thread topic but real quick, what wheels are you rocking? Never seen something like them before. They look awesome.

Thinking of putting a Rola roof basket on my 2013 forester. Does anyone have pictures of the Rola with the extension on their SH forester?

Does anybody know if any of the new Yakima towers (Skyline, Ridgeline, Baseline, Timberline) work with the '03 - '08 Foresters? I searched the forum and based on some very old threads, most recommended the EZ Riders or the Railgrab towers, but both seem to be discontinued as of 2017?

I tried looking at the Yakima website at the pics for the 4 different modern towers (Skyline, Ridgeline, Baseline, Timberline), but it's hard to tell if they'll fit the SG Foz based on the videos and pics. Based on the pics, it looks like the Ridgeline and the Baseline are designed for cars with flush or no factory rails?

I'm checking craigslist for some EZ Riders and Railgrab towers, but it would be nice to be able to use the new Jetstream bars (they look like aero bars) with the new towers (I don't believe they can be used with the older EZ Riders or Railgrab).

Any insight/guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!

Thule don't list SF5's on their roof bar systems in the UK. Does anyone have any advice what fits and what doesn't as I've seen US SF5's running Thule on here.

I did contact Thule but they sent me this reply...

Hi Stu,

Thank you for your email and your interest in Thule Products. I'm afraid we do not have a recommended roof rail fit for this vehicle. We may however have a tow ball solution if you have one fitted.

Apologies that we could not recommend an approved fit for your vehicle and please do get back in touch if you have any further queries.


Kind Regards,
