Easy, Inexpensive DIY Roof Rack using Superstrut/Unistrut


848

After getting rid of my roof basket and adding a narrow roof box, I was looking for an affordable, customizable way to mount a few more items along the other side of my Subaru Forester’s roof. That’s when I discovered Unistrut/Superstrut. Here’s how I pulled it all together.

If you only need to mount traction boards to your roof rails, take a look at the video ALNSM Overland posted (just yesterday!) where Jordan comes up with a clever DIY mount for his boards:

Comment below if you’d like links to anything, but there’s nothing obscure or hard to find here. Unistrut or Superstrut materials are usually available in large home improvement stores (you’ll probably find it in the electrical department next to the conduit).
