The common questions:
Toughest Patrol roof rack
Wondering how to make your Nissan Patrol GU the toughest in the street? Why not take a look at the all-new Wedgetail rack? The Wedgetail rack is a new generation roof rack combining the aesthetics and functionality of the new generation composite style assembled rack with the traditional strength and proven identity of an Australian manufacturer. Wedgetail roof racks integrate the all-new Wedge-lock glass-reinforced corners that significantly increase the strength of this design, allowing us to offer you a full offroad rating regardless of what road you travel. All Wedgetail racks are manufactured here in Melbourne and Sydney Australia by longstanding industry veteran, Tradesman Roof Racks.
The Wedgetail roof rack to suit the Nissan Patrol GU fits by securing our Wedge-wing one piece mounting kit to the cabin roof gutter sills using four gutter clips on each side and then bolting the Wedgetail platform to the mounting kit. The advantages of this kind of mounting system don't just stop with a higher load rating and improved aesthetics, but it also allows for easy removal. The Wedgetail is removed from the vehicle by removing the eight gutter clips.
This listing is for the Wedgetail roof rack to suit the Nissan Patrol GU that comes as an unassembled platform. This option is ideal for those who often struggle with freight challenges. Shipping these platforms out in boxes is likely to allow for a further shipping range, not to mention lower feight prices compared to pre-assembled platforms.
The Wedgetail platform uses sturdy crossbars that run to the left and right of the vehicle. This crossbar incorporates a heavy-duty channel top and bottom. These channels allow any Wedgetail accessories to be quickly locked in or out; this also means that a large variety of alternative accessories can easily be fitted to the Wedgetail rack if necessary.
All Wedgetail Racks come standard with a wind deflector to minimise wind noise as much as possible. As well as this Wedgetail racks also include our unique Wedge-flow crossbar design which is the culmination of years of design experience in minimising wind noise. The Wedgetail rack to suit the Patrol is no different; we understand how frustrating a noisy roof rack can be and have put every effort into to ensuring that the Wedgetail rack is as quiet as it can be.
One thing you can be sure about with a Wedgetail rack is that no matter what road you are on in this country our full load rating will apply. Wedgetail racks do not need to be de-rated in offroad conditions due to the design and construction methods used, including our Wedge-lock corners. The load rating for the Wedgetail rack fitted to a Nissan Patrol GU is 150 kg. However, you must be aware of your vehicle's roof loading. This information will be available from Nissan. It is essential that you take the weight of the Wedgetail platform off your roof rating, and this will give you your legal carrying capacity (the reason we don't list this on the website is that it can vary between model variants).
