Thatís interesting, I thought they were supposed to be pretty quiet.

That is correct - I ran my RTT and Awning on the LFD Crossbars for months before getting their 7/8ths rack (which uses the same crossbars).

I get the same thing between 45-50mph. They sell a wind deflector but the description states it wonít fit with the factory rails. When I open the moonroof the noise goes away.

I didn't have any noise from them... Sounds like something is loose...

Hmm... I wonder if the bars are positioned just right to catch the wind... I didn't have any problems with mine, but I also had a basket on mine from day one. Maybe that did the trick for me?

I helped out with these, and I have the original ones. I can take pics if need be, but my paint job was not good. I still have them on my rig - for the 7/8th rack they just needed to be flipped. They still work perfectly!

I have 4 crossbars and tried moving them around but nothing seems to make much difference.

Looking back at old pics... I had a fairing on my roof basket...

From a different thread...

Pros: low profile, accessories bolt straight on (including RTT), no noise, great looks, great size, great weight capacity, and versatile.
Cons: limited by size of the stock side rails







BONUS! with the mesh off, my RTT bolted right on!!!

Also ran their crossbars but on a 10-13 Trail. I didn't get any wind noise until I mounted my RTT and only above 50 mph.

How many cross bars did you have when rtt was on them any issues you came across when running this setup?

I just received shipping confirmation on my rack. If anyone has any extra LFD cross bars that they want to part with, I can always use more and will buy them. ;-)

I had 3 ...but only 2 of them were needed. I had rubber spacers on the outer bars to raise the tent up 1/4 inch, and prevent the tent from squeaking on the bars. So the middle bar was not carrying any weight.

That is how I have it now on my 7/8ths rack too. I have one bar that is just there.
