    Hi All.

    I'm trying to find a roofrack (not just roofbars) for my 90 Pick Up. I want one that just covers the truck cab roof. I've spotted other Landy's with them fitted but so far I've had no luck finding one.

    Can anyone point me to a supplier or does anyone have an old one they'd like to sell?:confused:

    I'm in Shropshire.

    Thanks Mike. That's just the thing. Not that I'm going to get one, £550!!!!!!! Are they having a laugh. I guess I'll have to come up with another option.

    They are excellent quality. My mate has one... He rolled his 90 and the roof rack bent and absorbed the impact on its legs. Patriot sent me a set of ne w legs out, free of charge. They are good, and strong, but make in england, so expensive. Keep an eye out on ebay..they pop up infrequently

    Heres the pics.
    Only downside to patriot racks is that some of the joints are made by stainless bolts into tapped aluminium. When we came to change the legs, we had to drill 3 bolts and helicoil them.
    Other parts of the rack are stainless bolts, through ally, into stainless nuts - no probs whatsoever.

    If you buy one new, Copper grease is your new friend, but they are mega racks, and look awesome.
    Each rack has a serial number on one part of it. This means that if its stolen, it is traceable.

    Patriot will not sell replacements of this particular part.
