BajaRack roof racks were created as rugged storage solutions for the adventurer that likes to go beyond the trail. Part # BAJALR34EXPA Install BajaRack For Vehicles Without Factory Roof Rails Demonstrated on LR3 Hi I'm Doug, your tech support representative here at Atlantic British. In this video we're going to show you a cargo rack that we are carrying now for the LR3. Now this is 1 of 3 versions that we carry, depending on how the vehicle is optioned as far as roof racks and whatnot. And this one in particular is the BAJALR34EXPA. And the A designation is essentially for the LR3s that came without the luggage racks, where you had just the vinyl trim down the rain gutter, and we'll show you the difference in just a little while. So what I want to show you though, this is the hardware that comes with it. You can see that these are well built, solid heavy duty. It's all steel, powder coated. They put a nice foam backing where it makes contact with the body so that there is no scratches or damage done to your vehicle. You have full instructions and it also gives you a breakdown on all the hardware. This is what will be coming in a box along with the cargo rack. So what essentially what we're going to do is we're going to show you how easy it is to install it with a little help from someone else setting it up on top of the vehicle. The rest of the hardware and whatnot you can do this in less than an hour. And it makes a huge improvement. The looks of the vehicle along with the additional storage capacity. So, we're going to run through it with you and show you how you can improve your LR3. Alright, just before we get started I am going to give you a quick rundown on the tools necessary for this. And even in the instructions they mention a half inch wrench, a half inch ratchet tool which your half inch is your socket size, this is a 3/8ths drive ratchet. I like the extension. It gives me a little more leverage. With the 10 millimeter wrench you can go with either the regular or a combination wrench or you can have a gear drive which makes life a little easier. And in this case when you have to pop the trim up, we're just going to use a little nylon trim tool so that we don't do any damage to the paint on the vehicle. I like the nylon versus a metal screw driver or a scraper or whatnot. So that's essentially really all you're going to need. Remove the trim and install this new piece. Like I said, it is relatively easy and now we're going to show you how. And then we'll start from the middle, tighten everything down, and essentially that will be the full installation of the rack. Very easy. Very nice to do. And definitely a huge improvement on the looks of the vehicle. All right, so I want to show you the unit mounted up on the vehicle. You can see all tied down. It's fairly low profile. It adds 8 inches to the overall height of your vehicle. You have solid steel construction so you can put 150 pounds of weight on it so it gives you good additional storage and carrying capacity. Steel construction also with a powder coat paint. With the powder coat it gets into every pore so you have better protection against rust. And air deflector in the front to help deflect air so you don't end up with so much wind noise. There are some racks out there that are very noisy at highway speed. This air foil definitely takes care of that. So you can see here you have a nice piece. It adds to the look of the vehicle and adds to additional storage and carrying capacity. Alright, and in closing we wanted to show you this is how your new rack is going to come shipped to you. Obviously because of the size and this is 1 piece rack, it is going to come truck freight. You can see how well packaged it is plus wrapped and then tied down to the box so that you are going to get it completely in tact and in good shape. So when you're ready to add a rack to the top of your LR3 just call any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. And thanks for watching.<noscript>
