to use stnlss hardware on the roof rack

Two weeks into brand new 2012 fj and the bolts that hold the roof rack down are red and rusty, how about spending an extra $5 on decent hardware

Have you been playing in the beach break doing some true FJ scuba under the breakers? That sucks they rusted so fast. Probably happened faster from the salt air?

Mine are still good after 3.5 years. Take it in and get it fixed.

Just get stainless hardware. Cheap fix. Dealer will just replace bolts and something will happen

I just happened to look at mine today and they look fine after 6 years in the northeast...... I'd bring it back to the dealer
