I am looking to purchase a bike rack for a 2004 Range Rover. Any input / views would be appreciated.

Roof Mount: I am told by my local Range Rover dealer that it is not possible to attach the standard aftermarket (Yakima / Thule) bike racks to the factory OEM roof bars (explaination seems to be that the shape of the roof bars does not allow for rack attachment?? - cannot seem to get an explaination that makes sense to me....)

Hitch Mount: Any advice on which brand mount is the best (looking for a 4 bike rack)? Also, on Yakima's web site, I cannot confirm (no 2004 Range Rover data) whether or not Yakima's bike rack will fit the 2004 Range Rover?

thanks

Rocky Mounts has a fork-mount tray that bolts to factory roof racks:

and there are disc brake adapters and lock cores too.

That is all.

The Rangie's have a 2" hitch. So, any hitch rack designed for a 2" hitch will work. You'll just have to decide if you want swing away, lay-down, etc. But, they'll all work.

As for the roof, that's probably right. The crossbars are really wide (front-to-back)...something like 2.5-3"... &, to date, I "believe" the widest mount Yakima makes is 2".

I hadn't seen Rocky Mounts mount before.... that looks like that would probably work.
