I’ve been thinking to use 8mm pop rivers to rivet steel plates to the roof and then rivet the rails to the plates. I own this thing which makes it quite easy https://sydneytools.com.au/product/...s-brushless-accubird-pro-rivet-tool-combo-kit.

With that said I have a 42inch stedi light bar, 20 litre Jerry can and roof pod with recovery straps as the only stuff I carry up there so I’m hopeful.
Yer, most of the roof is just rubbish thin tin.
Any factory mounting points will have a secondary plate most likely with a bit of shape designed in it, to add strength while spreading the load over an area.
Your idea, would certainly be better than a few nutserts through the roof skin.

Safer driving behind you blokes than in front! Don't stand on the brakes! :D (Mind you, I'm not going to check how Ford mounted mine!)
