New Roofrack for my US-based 90

Hi Guys,
I'm on the lookout for a roofrack for my 90. I shipped it for the UK and has a Safety Devices "Camel Trophy" internal/external rollcage. This differs from the standard NAS D90 cage as the upper bars go further up and over in to the roof, the NAS spec cages go along the roof line.

I like the Hannibal roofrack, but I'm not sure if it'll fit. Compare the photo here:

to my 90 here:

http://indigoprime.com/photos/2003-0...rain%20028.htm

and you can see the difference.

So my question is has anyone fitted a Hannibal rack to a 90 with the SD "Camel" rollcage fitted? Or any recommendations on others that will fit?

Thanks,
Nick.

Hiya mate
I have no specific answer to your question - you may be better off on a Land Rover-specific site, like www.landroverenthusiast.com , where they have a good bulletin board and there will be answers aplenty for you.

I may be wrong but I got the impression most Rover-owners on here use 110s?

Good luck

Hey there, im pretty sure that a Hannibal rack wont fit your Defender, Safety Devices UK make the 'Expedition' rack for the D90 which will fit your vehicle no problem (check out there web site),its quite expensive new, Ive got one on my 90(picked it up secondhand), its steel and a little heavier, but its bombproof, the raised loop also keeps the bush away from my roof tent (ive cut out the rear), Happy Rovering, Grif
