    Did a search and found some info but nothing about what length tracks to install on a DC roof. They're available in 42" and 54" and I'd really rather avoid having to cut them.

    Any reason you want to drill into the roof for tracks and not do a Q tower or whispbar system? If you want to install tracks on the roof, I would go with the 54" tracks and trim them as needed. The longer the spacing, the more stable the platform is to carry your stuff.

    I already have rack tracks on my camper and another truck "cap/topper/thing that covers the bed with a lot of names" so all I'd have to do is swap the racks between units rather than buying a complete new system. Agreed, the longer platform equals more stability. Thanks for the input.
