Has anyone fitted load bars onto the cab of a 2019 ford ranger double cab and then mounted a 43kg roof top tent to the load bars. What weight have you put in the tent? I'm looking for feedback/comments from anyone who's gone this route.

The roof rails are one attached to the outer panel of the roof.  How ever the position on the side front and back with a slight curve on it makes it a bit stronger than if its was closer to the middle of the roof.

All the roof rails fitted in a similar way on any other vehicle would have a load capacity of about 70 to 75kg.

The older vehicle models had a small roof gutter a long the side and roof racks use to attach to these gutters. Due to being on the side and thicker materiaal there the weight capacity was larger.

On the Navara 2007 model I had the roof rails was fitted in a similar way as on the ranger but the size foot at eack point was much larger thus enabling a weight ditribution over a larger area at each attachment point on the roof.
