For an '87 G20.
I see the ladders quite a bit, but never seen people on them or anything on the roof. I've seen bikes hanging from the ladder. Are the ladders mostly for looks or are the hinges and door strong enough?? How is the ladder mounted to the door?? I'd be afraid of the ladder ripping off with me on it.
I'm gonna add a roof rack.
Thanks.

The hinges are made out of 3/8 plate....yeah they are strong.... the question is are your door bolts tight enough.

The ladder/roof rack ..... useful if you dont have a lot of interior room for storage.

I have a roof rack if you want it.... but you gotta come get it.
