Re: BajaRack's FJ Roof Rack - Review
I don't mind it being flat. I just don't want it to be any taller than a stealth because with the stealth my FJ clears the garage by literally less than an inch. I have a weird 1970's garage size. When I went to get my garage door replaced the guy laughed and said that garage size was used on like 1% of houses and they had to send out for my door to be custom made and it would take several weeks. If you ever see a garage that has a fiberglass door that allows light in, then that's the size. They were a weird idea that somebody thought up that would provide light and heat in a garage like a greenhouse during the first fuel crisis in the early 70's. Now I am stuck having to measure vehicles before purchasing one, and I'm the only one in the neighborhood who has to do so. What a drag!
So basically... I need something that is very specific in height, and if I want to park in the garage I can't even do a mild lift, unless I leave the rack off entirely. So for me it is a decision between, lift, rack, and parking in the snow. I've considered building and additional garage with a higher opening and ceiling on the side of my house, but can't get permission from the city because it would sit too close to the property line, but I can build a car port, so I may go that route and just go for the tall rack and stop worrying about it. Grrrrrrrr.
Good-bye Dad. I love you! Thanks for being such a wonderful father.
