The K9 Roof Rack System from Eezi-Awn is a revolutionary advancement in expedition-style racks; it is thinner, lighter, stronger, quieter, more functional, more aerodynamic, more durable, and more aesthetically complimentary to your vehicle than the competition.
The sizes and applications for the Land Rover LR3 and LR4 are quite broad. We have two width of platform that work on this vehicle. The LR3 and LR4 are narrower at the back of the roof than across the windshield. The 1250mm (49") platform is as wide as the rear of the truck, and the 1400mm (55") platform is as wide as the front of the roof. Which is best for you is entirely up to you. Measure out both on your truck and see which fits your style.
This vehicle is also unique in that it has 2 mounting options. If your vehicle did not come with factory roof rack track, you would choose our standard style rack which includes the Eezi-Awn K9 mounting rail to mount to the rear roof section. If your vehicle came with factory track on the top rear section, you can use our OEM Track Mount feet instead of the K9 Mounting rail.
The Standard version of the rack systems are the same as our tradition rack system on other vehicles. The incorporate the K9 mounting rail on the top rear section, with feet attaching to the rail and the platform on top. This rack is available in 1.4M and 1.6M for the rear section. There is a 2.2M full length version that also uses specialty K9 rail/feet at the front of the roof on each side of the sunroof.
The OEM Track version of the rack systems mount feet directly to the OEM track and the platform on top. This rack is available in 1.4M and 1.6M for the rear section. There is a 2.2M full length version that also uses specialty K9 rail/feet at the front of the roof on each side of the sunroof.
OEM Extended Track
The OEM Extended Track version of the rack systems mount feet directly to the OEM track and the platform on top. Extended track means the OEM track covers the upper rear section of the roof, and extends forward from there, terminating in the lower forward roof on each side of the sunroof. This rack system is available in 1.4M, 1.6M, 1.8M, and 2M lengths.
These versions of the rack measures 4" high at the upper rear section of the roof, and uses 40mm feet on the rear cross braces.
Capacity of the K9 roof rack system is broken into two measurements, static weight and dynamic weight. Static is when the vehicle is stationary. Dynamic is when the vehicle is in motion. We have not tested the K9 racks on vehicles to the point of roof failure. We can tell you what we have tested ourselves effectively. A dynamic capacity in the range of 500 pounds is possible. That load included a RTT, awning, dual fuel can holder, aluminum storage case with recovery gear, shovel, axe, under mount table, light bar, etc on a 2.2M long rack. A static capacity of 1000 pounds is possible. An example of static load increase would be adding people in the tent on the roof. Please understand these capacities are on vehicles that have modified suspensions designed to manage this amount of weight. They are not a warrantied or guaranteed capacity. Your load capacity will vary.
The K9 Roof Rack System for the Land Rover LR3 and LR4 requires no drilling at all for any size rack. Our proprietary mounting rail mounts right over the roof pinch weld trim and utilizes the OEM roof rack mounting points.
Installation of this rack system can be done by one person in approximately 1-1/2 hours. Help lifting the platform on the roof would be appreciated. You start by removing the factory roof rack, then attach the K9 mounting rail to the roof, followed by a full set of feet, and finally a platform on top. Please see our Roof Rack Installation 101 video for more in depth explanation. Written instructions are also provided with each rack system. Click Here to Download Instructions.
The components used on the Land Rover LR3 and LR4 rack systems include a pair of mounting rail (or utilize OEM track), a set of K9 feet (2 per platform cross brace), and a platform.

"The K9 Roof Rack System is a welcome alternative to the cage-style racks that once defined the typical overland roof rack. It is sleek, understated, and complimentary to the aesthetics of vehicles new and old. It is most importantly, remarkably robust, an attribute we would naturally expect from the engineers at Eezi-Awn."

Feet vs LegsThe K9 Roof Rack Kit comes with various components. The Mounting Rail is compatible with Gutter-Less Roofs, like those found on the Toyota 4Runner, Tacomas, or 100 / 200 Series Land Cruisers. K9 Roof Rack Feet are then attached to that Mounting Rail. When there is a vehicle with a Gutter, we use K9 Roof Rack Legs.
The K9 Roof Rack Feet come in 3 basic sizes: 40mm / 2.5", 65mm / 3.25", and 90mm / 4". Each of these feet do have a height adjustment range, measuring from the top of the mounting rail vertically to the top of the foot where the platform attaches. At first glance, the available sizes are in the middle of their ranges; this is because Eezi-Awn uses their middle measurement height as the identifier.
40mm (2.5") height range 55-65mm (2.25" - 2.5")65mm (3.25") height range 75-90mm (3" - 3.5")90mm (4") height range 95-115mm (3.75" - 4.5")
The K9 Roof Rack Legs are all measured from the bottom of the leg that sits in the gutter, vertically to the top of the leg where the platform attaches. Each size has 15mm, or a little over 0.5" of height range upward from the listed height.
150mm (6") height range 150-165mm (6" - 6.5")170mm (6.75") height range 170-185mm (6.75" - 7.25")190mm (7.5") height range 190-205mm (7.5" - 8")210mm (8.25") height range 210-225mm (8.25" - 8.75")230mm (9") height range 230-245mm (9" - 9.5")250mm (9.75") height range 250-265mm (9.75" - 10.25")300mm (11.75") height range 300-315mm (11.75" - 12.25")

TURN AROUND TIME
We always work to ship every order as quickly as possible, but we're a small team and we ask that you read our shipping policy so that we can set the right expectations.
Unless an expedited shipping method is requested, it's best to assume that from the time we receive your order during our office hours, Monday through Friday, and add it to our queue, it takes our team a few business days to start preparing your shipment. There is also the additional shipping time based on your location from our warehouse in Salt Lake City. These transit maps offer a helpful timeline for most orders:
Please note that we do not handle or ship orders over the weekend.
Shipping around the holidays can get a little crazy. We do our best to get your packages out within 48 hours, but once they leave our warehouse, it's in the hands of our carriers to handle the rest. Often times they experience delays and unforeseen weather. The best way to ensure your package arrives by a certain date is to expedite the shipping, not wait until the last minute, and even order a few extra days in advance.
These "last day to order" deadlines are your best bet. We promise to ship within the timelines given to us by our carriers, but these are only guidelines and cannot guarantee on-time delivery 100% (regardless if expedited is selected):
- Ground & Freight: December 13th
- 2nd Day Air: December 18th
- Next Day Air: December 19th
If your order did not arrive accurately, we will pay the return shipping charges and refund to you the amount of shipping you paid on that particular product. If you received what you ordered but are dissatisfied with it, you will be responsible to pay the return shipping charges and the initial shipping charge.
Please note that order cancellations on Goose Gear products are subject to a 20% restocking fee.
