United Kingdom 2015 Defender 130 Puma 2.2 HCPU Corris Grey
Cargobear roof rack

Just thought I'd share a few pics and thoughts on the Cargobear roof rack which I fitted this weekend. For my 130 I got the 1005mm rack and a 550mm extension for the cab, plus 3 roof bars to fit onto the hardtop canopy for the roof tent.

Here are the rack components:

They come with some sachets of copper grease which is nice:

The quality of the rack is excellent and all the captive nuts have some sort of Loctite stuff in them:

Here is the assembled frame:

With the chequer plate and extension added (the extensions also come with chequer plate):

Fitted to the vehicle:

Overall I'm really happy with the rack and I'm glad I didn't go for another front runner one. This has less wind noise than the FR, is more flexible (in terms of usage) and looks great. I'll report back with more info when it's has some proper use.

That looks good on your truck - very nice.
Shudder to think what it cost though.

They are a great roof rack and it also means we can access a lot more car parks.
