Great job!

I have seen a RX450H with roofrail. The line up and fitment are the same,
very nice find. I'm considering it also.

Found this today:
Sportcross roof bars - 459.57 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce

Anyone know if this is legit? It looks like an old site, but if they actually have these in stock, I know I'm gonna order them!

Okay. It seems that that site hasn't been updated for a while, and they're not replying to my emails. Also, some of the information-links on the right there seem fishy.

look for the '09 style rails. Not sure what other years they cross to

I'm sorry you suffer from cranial-rectal inversion.

Good job! Looks OEM for sure.
Now, I have a question for you. I'm looking to get IS300 sportcross instead of my 2003 Forester (it's up for sale). How did you survive your transition ? Was it more room in the forester or the same? The forester is pretty loud car on highway, is it any better in IS?
How tall are you? I'm 6'4" and I'm afraid I will not fit in a car and my head will rub on ceiling. And if I put the seat to the end there will not be any room for passengers.

Good job on the OEM look...I just bought on sportcross and also own a 98forester. The forester definately got more room. You can fit 4 adults on the sportcross but its really tight.

I know there's very little chance of a reply, but do you have any part numbers or any more info you could provide on the Rav4 rails you used? All of the links and pics in the original thread are dead. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks.

Matt

Oh, and I also finally adjusted the stance. H&R Sportcross springs, Tokico Blues, and an Eibach rear sway bar.
