How to Maintain the Roof Rack on Your Ford Vehicle in BC

May 25,2022

Ford SUVs are designed for fun and adventure. Many come standard with roof rails, and others can have this piece added onto the top later. While these handy parts come in various styles to carry different items, there are a few rules to follow to help extend their life expectancy.

First, you should always read the owner’s manual about weight limits. The roof load specification of your SUV should be taken into consideration before you add anything. A typical roof rack system can hold between 68 and 90 kg (150 to 200 lbs). This is enough to accommodate extra luggage. It is also the equivalent of three sheets of 17-mm (3/4-inch) plywood. Overloading the rack can cause premature wear and tear to the vehicle, and no one wants that.

Depending on the model you own, there are many different styles you can get to serve various functions. For example, you can find a rack-mounted piece that is made specifically for kayaks or canoes. Another for bicycles is a good option. You can also get cargo boxes that are water-tight or even a basket. Whatever you decide on, be sure you understand its limitations before you load up.
