Can Taller Legs Be Added To Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Roof Rack On VW Westfalia?

Question:

Hello I have a pioneer rack installed on a 86 VW Westy poptop with 5-9/10 heavy duty towers. I need more clearance for the skylight/vent on the poptop. I would prefer 6.5inch inche tower but I dont believe there is such a thing. Hence the 8inch 3/10 option. The current towers have a 6inch base and sit on artificial gutters. Which 8inch 3/10 model number should I get? Thanks Are there spacers I could add to lift 1.5inch using the current 5inch 9/10 towers?

Expert Reply:

Based on the photos you attached, you will want to go wtih Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs - Gutter Mount - 8-3/10" Tall - Qty 2 # RL210S2. These are universal legs that attach to roof gutters and they are the same style as the ones you pictured, only these are 8-3/10" tall. This will give you the necessary clearance that you are looking for; there are not any spacers for your current setup that will give you the clearance you are looking for so I recommend going with these legs.
