    I have a 2019 Forrester and need some extra storage for an upcoming trip. I have side rails but no cross bars. are cross bars needed for a soft roof bag? obviously I wouldn't put anything on the moon roof.
  2. Utility and Protection
    Hi there, I recently purchased a 2011 Subaru Forester and am trying to find some cheaper roof rails online. I've come across a cheaper set of Subaru roof rails taken from a 2016 model being sold on Facebook marketplace. I was just wondering if anyone knew if the roof rails from a fourth...
  3. Sourcing Parts & Accessories
    Hello, I was looking at my 2002 Forester L 5MT and on the passenger side, my roof rail (rail to body) has not only snapped in half, but the anchors holding it down above headliner have also broken. It's held on by 2 anchors and the roof racks. Anyone know where I can find a new one or will...
  4. Towing and Hauling
    I hate the look and the idea of needing a cross bar if you already have raised factory rails. If I was to get a tray/basket that sat over the raised factory rails cant I just U-bolt it to them?

    I am looking to replace a 2019's roof rails with something with a beefier look -- something with a tubular steel look like the Nissan Exterra or 4runner TRD Pro. Has anyone ever seen something similar for the Forester? Thanks for the help!
  8. Exterior and Body
    I have a 2.5i base without the OEM rails. I understand this is a pain in the donkey to install the OEM rails as it involves pulling down the headliner. I enjoy pain in the donkey projects and I pretty much hate all the other insanely expensive options available to me for naked roof rails/cross bars...
