We removed the roof rack to clean up the appearance. Oh my daughter's new 07 limited. The problem is they are tightly integrated in appearance to the handles on the back which are also ugly and useless IMO.

Beside you looks much better without the rack. But does anyone have any ideas what to do with the space left from the handles?

I'd make a piece out of fiberglass using the old handles as the model. Wood might work also but think fiberglass would be better.

get the "sport" model parts for the back that do not have the handle. you may paint them to match the body to clean the look up. I like the mold idea for the top cap piece.

Close.... but it looks like that it will need to be custom because the roof rack section is still the same shape (THANKS though)

I would look for a mate who can 3D print a low profile replacement to cover the top and you can redesign the tailgate side yourself. Just a thought!

i saw a commander over the weekend that was white, and had painted out all of the roof rails and trim to the same body color white. really looked clean. hope to see it again and grab a photo... may be a consideration
