Adding Roof Rails

I have an SLE-1 package and am wondering if anyone has added the roof rails to their terrain? After lifting up the trim on roof and reading the factory service manual it looks like the bolts are already welded in place just covered over with trim. Researching parts looks like I can get the rails,trim, etc.. for around 450...just wondering if anyone with an SLE has done this yet?

Re: Adding Roof Rails

Interesting... not that I can help you, but can you tell me how the trim on your SLE-1 attaches? Do you think it would be feasible to do the opposite of what you are trying to do? I do like the 'sleekness' of the roof-rack-less Terrains.

Re: Adding Roof Rails

Looking at the manual you should be able to reverse it...you would just need to unbolt the factory roof rails and then buy the trim for the non-roof rail terrain (its one long piece on each side), There are just some clips that hold the trim pieces in...or you could just sell me your roof rails and I'll give you my trim pieces..

lol, well I have to think about more than what I want. Future buyers of my Terrain might EXPECT roof rails!

I have the roof rails and most likely will not be using them. I would be interested in exchanging parts if it is not a big deal to remove them. I have an Equinox and I assume they are the same roof rails as the Terrain.
