I prefer the slick top look of the Interceptors. Has anyone removed the roof rack from their ST? I’m curious if Ford offers a molding to go in place of the rails.

From the previous gen, the removing is done from the top, you pop off the covers that run along the roof rails and access the screws from the top. You'll need to fill in the holes and then get the trim covers that's found on the Explorers that comes without the roof rails.

We have a local dealer that has a white one for sale that they painted the roof black.

Personally, I really like it, but my wife said no deal.
Eh....I could go either way with that. I guess it depends on the color.

I spoke to a local emergency vehicle up fitter today. He’s pretty sure he can order the Interceptor molding from Ford. I’ll post pics if it gets done.

Found a Youtube vid that helps with the removal, here's one but I will get factory full length trim covers.
