2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Peculiar Roof Rails
September 08, 2011
Our long-term 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE has some peculiar roof rails. They're completely solid with no gap to the roof's sheet metal. From the top pic it appears like the gap of a standard roof rail were simply fillled in.
Hit the jump and you'll see in that pic there are mounting points for trusses across the rails, similar to conventional roof rails (2008 Lexus GX on the jump, for comparison).
I've never seen roof rails like this. Then again, I've never used a vehicle's roof rails. Ever.
I make sure of all of my crap goes inside the load area. So my experience is limited to mounting the trusses on our long-term Sienna.
What about you? What gear/crap do you carry on the roof of your vehicle?
