    Pardon my ignorance, but I have to ask. What are the wires that go from the roof rack to the front corners of some vehicles used for? I have seen this on several expedition vehicles and I am just wondering what the function is. Here is the most obvious example: Thanks - Bart

    Does anyone know what brand/type rack this is?

    Quick Fist Clamps

    I just bought some Quick Fist Clamps to hold an axe and shovel to my roof rack. From everything I have read, these clamps are the best and work really good. I just wanted to know if anyone out there has had one fail. I would hate to drop a shovel on the hwy!! Thanks - Bart
