Anyone have any pictures of or put safari roof rack on a Subaru? I saw a chrome one I think on pimp my ride, but that was on a truck, but I really liked the look. :grin:

Yah SuBrat84 now that's what I'm talking about! That's a pretty sweet ride and the rack goes well with it, and with the front guard. That looks like a real workhorse being lifted and all. That must be a lot of fun on the trails.

I think that's the 2nd or 3rd rig he's had that lift/brush guard/safari rack on! And they all look good with that set-up!! You should start marketing it B!

Surco makes a 40"x50" aluminum safari rack listed as perfect size for a Subaru, light brackets, spare tire brackets etc. optional. I've seen it listed as low as $167at Summit Racing of all places. I'm tempted to get one for my now outbackified wagon. Searching for opinions on it I saw a Land Rover forum that complained it was flimsy and cheap, but since that's coming from LR guy's who knows how sturdy it may be, those same guys likely refer to our rides in the same manner. I like that the aluminum may be much lighter than a HD steel rack. I plan to attach it with yakima adapters for the factory crossbars and some custom hardware. Now to figure out how I want to mount the Hellas on the front bumper... (fogs on the bumper, driving on the rack)

Yes soloracer34 that would work! It appears they also have brackets for putting lights on the rack. In trying to find their web site I went to surco.com, which is Surco Products Inc. but is for non-formaldehyde cherry-bubblegum fragrance portable toilet deodorant...whoops wrong site! Surcoinc.com works though.

Does it come in one of those cute little cans you can put on your dash?
