80 roof bars

Well, my first message seemed to get through, so now on to business.
I need a couple of gutter mount roof bars for the 80 which would also
fit the Pajero too.
I have done as much research as I can after measuring the gutter span
and the depth of the roof above the gutters etc. Rhino look good,
Halfords commercial look expensive but about the same as Rhino, Thule
look complicated to work out and expensive, and Paddy Hopkirk van
bars appear good but difficult to track down. I see there is one
major website from a company based nearby in Chesham that sells most
makes of bars and wonder if its best to go and see what they have as
their site seems too cluttered with info.
Basically I need 4 brackets with 6 ins height and bars say 135cm long
(80 roof is 136 wide and Paj 131). Load capacity would be more like
commercial tolerances up to Toy rated load.
Any recommendations please?
Many thanks
Cheers

Hey Jon
Welcome back, dont be given us a scare like that just up and going all
quiet. After all one more for me to pester.
I think I saw something like that with Frogs a while back, worth a try.

Welcome back. I use Thule roof bars to attach my roof tent to the 80. They
do a standard and a heavy duty bar. I use the heavy duty ones and have had
no problems. Whilst in Libya I misread a dune and crested it way to
quickly, landed nose first on the ARB then settled on the wheels. Roof tent
slid forward about a foot but stayed on.

I need new roof bars as well for the LC. Solid but cheap preferably! :)
I don't need "crash into sand dune with tent on board" resilience, I just
need to carry ladders for work and maybe a spare wheel or two for
greenlining.
Always used Thule stuff in the past but it is very expensive so any
recommendations for cheaper stuff will be welcome here also.
