The Subaru Baja is one of the most unique AWD vehicles out there. We wanted to make an overland roof rack that made it utilitarian (as much as it can be) while also making the Baja a tad more unique and stylish.

Subaru Baja Overland Rack

If you have a Subaru Baja, you understand that space can sometimes be a premium when wanting to go on some adventures. With the Subaru Baja Overland Rack the amount of possibilities now become endless. Going on a long road trip and need space to put hard cases and gear? check. Going biking or kayaking and need to haul them around? Check. Heading out to camp and need space for a roof top tent, fuel, and recovery boards? check.

Why we created a roof rack for the Baja.

Sure, the Baja market is very small… but we saw a need and decided to try something new. Subaru Bajas are great little vehicles for some adventures and light overlanding, but they had one flaw. There just is not much usable space. We wanted a rack that could mount to the roof AND the bed sides to create a functional platform. Not only that, we wanted side panels that supported things like fuel, recovery boards, tools, and MOLLE compatible devices.


This black powder coated  8′ 10″ (106.25″)x 4′ 3″ (51″) rack comes in at around 111lbs (+/-) with a dynamic rating of 350lbs (including rack weight). The rack utilizes aluminum T slot extrusions for crossbars to provide maximum strength and versatility. All rack components are made from 3/16″ aluminum (besides the roof mounts which are steel) and offer the best in weight efficiency and strength.

You have the option to choose between silver and black anodized extrusions (crossmembers). Also, there is the option of a solid front shield or one with light cutouts. We have found that the Diode Dynamics SS3 lights tend to work best in that space and mount flawlessly.

“*Disclaimer: Adding a roof rack to your vehicle will change its balance, center of gravity, and road handling manners. It is the end user’s responsibility to follow their vehicle user manuals for maximum loads (Both static and dynamic) as well as maximum GVWR. NEVER exceed maximum vehicle loads as unsafe road handling will occur. Our roof racks are designed with the utmost care and are tested extensively to ensure maximum safety and performance. Nonetheless, it is your responsibility to ensure proper roof, gutter, and mounting surface conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions:
1.) Where Are We Manufacturing This Roof Rack?

Answer: We manufacture this roof rack in SE Pennsylvania. We buy hardware in the US as well, but sometimes our suppliers source it from overseas. We purchase the raw steel and aluminum in the US. Powder coating is also completed right here in SE Pennsylvania.

2.) Which Extrusion Color Should I Choose?

Answer: In short, that is completely up to you. There is no difference in build or quality between the two colors, both will function the same.

3.) If I decide to get the light cut-outs what should I fill it with?

Answer: We have found Diode Dynamics SS3 lights the best fit for the slots. We typically fit 2 in either side and get maximum output on the lights, making it extremely useful for late night driving in the wilderness.

4.) How Much Weight Can I Install On the Baja roof?

Answer: We rate this rack up to 350 pounds (including rack weight) or less in dynamic load (500lbs. for static load). Could the rack hold more… yes (but we do not recommend it). Now, could your Subaru handle the weight… probably not. Keep in mind how much you load on and how that will affect your driving performance.

While in Research and Development, we had a steel rack (to test concept) attached and in total had over 400lbs. on top. We experienced no issues at all. That being said, a safe bet is 350 pounds on the roof and bed (so including rack). Once you get passed that, you will start to notice a bigger drop in driving performance.

5.) How Much Does The Roof Rack Weigh?

Answer: For how many components are needed for this rack, it is surprisingly light. It comes in at around 111lbs. Don’t let that fool you though, this rack is extremely rigid and up for whatever adventure you take it on.

6.) What goes into installing the Subaru Baja Overland Rack?

Answer: In short, you need to take off your existing roof rails, drill 3 holes in each bed side (with our included measurements), get your mounts in, and put the roof rack together. Before you do so, we recommend reading our instructional manual here.
