    On my 01 Sport Trac 4x4 the 2 pieces on the roof are cracked and one has fallen off. Anybody know if/where/how I can get it replaced? Maybe a junkyard? Need help because it looks like crap.

    If you are talking about the rails. I removed mine on my '04 gen1. The screws are an the outside. You will have to plug the holes. I used bodytabs then painted them

    Eddie, i'm sure he is referring to the back plastic strips.... They are becoming common failures now.

    Long time lurker her, and I’ve gotten a lot of useful information on the forums over the years. i never had anything To contribute until now (not at this is that big a contribution), but I remember this project @swshawaii is talking about. I believe it was actually for home fabricated cover/caps for the roof rail holes. Found it...https://www.sporttrac.org/threads/roof-rack-removal-option-2.121375/

    Yeah, I am. I really would like to get some. Problem is that I don’t know where I’d find it. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find one in the junkyard.
