Re: Roof Rack and garage

OP....you read this already, right?

https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/foru...omparison.html

Please note that frontrunner, gobi, bajarack etc all typically have group buys over at the Tacoma World and Toyota-4runner.org forums. Many GBs offer discount on all Toyota products so you can buy FJ items during the Tacoma and 4Runner group buys.

Also keep your eyes open for Black Friday deals....i know that Bajarack has mentioned a 10% BF discount over at the 4runner forums.

Frontrunner makes good stuff and great accessories, although they are expensive. I personally lean toward alum racks to save on weight and to eliminate possibility of rust.

Prinsu Racks are probably the least expensive but require a bit more of a DIY approach to attaching items (full disclosure I have a Prinsu Rack).

Cayenne- Looks sharp! I found the site. Did you go with the Pioneer platform 84 x 49 or 84 x 56?
I went the 84X49 version,this version stays inside your roof gutter line and fits my Tepui Kukenam XL perfectly (biggest one tepui offers) with some space left in the back (think as 80% frontrrunner boxes or Alubox width with fit).

I sometime think I should have went with 84X56 to have some room on the side, don't know what I am going to use that space for. Wider tray will stick out slightly from the roof, but will still stays inside your truck body.

Only reason I went with the smaller tray was because of the aesthetics (I know sounds dumb!!), did want a look where it feels like FJ was wearing a hat.

Agree on the Prinsu.

As @SilvFx mentioner, black friday is around the corner, you are better off waiting or going through GB route.
I bought my Rhino Rack through OK4WD during Black Friday sale and saved some dough

How do you guys wash and wax under those low rack?
I use a spare speedmaster wheel brush, it slides under the rack via the slots between the aluminum and cleans the roof great. for wax I just pull the rack off and seal it once a year.

3" lift, 34.5 tire, Prinsu rack fit under a standard 7' door with an inch to spare. Disclaimer: A 7' door will likely be less than 7' and varies by how the opening is trimmed.

I personally remove my rack every year to claybar --> Synthetic Sealant --> and then apply thick wax. Rest of the time, I use wash and have it cleaned by sticking cloth to a stick.

Nice! I would love to remove my factory rack to paint it but scared something will break or get lost. Seems like everything "simple" I have done leads to much more work lol

Re: Roof Rack and garage

I have been really happy with my Warrior Products rack. works great with my RTT (pope Chugach - Chugach 2-3 person tent) I believe Warrior is still on this forum as well.
