Re: What do you haul on top of your FJ?

I strap my girlfriend's b***h of a mother to the top of my Baja. When moving a highway speeds, she sounds just like a siren and clears traffic for us! I'm usually laughing hysterically and gf is sitting there trying to suppress a grin. For some reason her mom no longer desires to go anyplace with us?

Re: What do you haul on top of your FJ?

Yakima Cargo Box Goes on top, and when I go camping, inside the cargo box I put my GTT (ground top tent, 6 person) sleeping bags, folding chairs, milk crate with lot of crap, firewood, clothing, air mattress, back packs, pillows, blankets, and I still have lots of room inside! All I have in back of the FJ is cooler, food, kitchen, 5 gallon H20.
Did I say I don't get this RTT fad?

Re: What do you haul on top of your FJ?

Question regarding carrying gas cans on roof rack, whether "jerry cans" or Rotopak. Is it OK to have them lie on their sides; or do they need to be stood up vertically? Does it matter and why? OK to be on side if not filled completely full?

Thanks for any input!

Re: What do you haul on top of your FJ?

Shovel and Axe only. Had thought about hi-lift, spare tire and gas cans but found it too difficult for me to get things up and down. Got a swing out rear bumper instead. Removed all but one upper crossbar, makes it easier to wash the roof.

The only jerry cans I know that can stand, be out in the sun, run over, lay down, upside down, no vent, no leak etc are the Scepter Military Fuel Cans.

Expensive....yes.

Worth every penny IMO.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

Re: What do you haul on top of your FJ?

Most of my camping gear for a family of five. 6 person tent, sleeping bags and pads, camp kitchen and stove, queen size bed, sheets and comforter, pillows...
And all of our clothes for a long weekend in yellow TNF duffel with our camp chairs under that.
