Luggage rails

Anyone taken their luggage rails off? The vertical ones? I'm curious to see how it would look.

It gives it a nice sleek look. General the guys I see do it are those that go for the street cruiser look. I had mine off when I polished them and wasn't a fan of the look; it made the Jeep look less of a sport utility.

they were only off for about a month. they are back on now along with a rack. i liked the look but my daughter said it was too hard to climb onto the roof without them.

I like the look, just be sure to plug the holes if you take it off

Black plastic push pins ( kinda like what holds the bumper on) with a bead of black rtv around the washer part of the push pin
