Looking for a SIMPLE cross bar roof rack

Does anyone sell a simple straight cross bar rack for the FJC? Looking to put cross bars on the rear two rack mounts since I have an aluminum 3" deep box that mounts on cross bars.

Re: Looking for a SIMPLE cross bar roof rack

A member did a custom fit cross bar on his roof rack along with a D.I.Y diamond plate air deflector: Custom Roof Rack Cross-Bars and Deflector--lotsa pics

Here is a link to a quick roof rack comparison to see if you find one suitable for your need: Complete Roof Rack Comparison

Thanks for directing me to that thread. I've already gone to the 'Mini Me' rack. Now I might try the mod with aluminum cross bars or I might look into Yakima system. Still thinking.

Re: Looking for a SIMPLE cross bar roof rack

I was looking into mounting my yakima crossbars that i already have and came across this:
Yakimadaptors

and someone was just selling some:
Stornco adapters for Yakima roof rack

but the price seems kinda high to me (both new and used). I also saw where someone had DIYed adapters for the yakima landing pads but can't find the link just now. The nice thing with the yakimas and adapters is the cross bars remove really easily when not in use (i had done this on my tacoma shell for along time and it worked great).

Do not induce vomiting. Treat with copious amounts of bacon.
