Any tips on Installing the Front Runner Slimline II Roof Rack?

I recently purchased an Alu-Cab Shadow Awning and was unable to get it properly supported with the OEM FJ Rack and ordered a Slimline II since it has mounts specifically for the Alu-Cab Shadow Awning.

Anyone who's installed on have any tips to make it easier?

I've already got the OEM Roof Rack off and am in the process of Clay Bar'ing & polishing the roof and getting it wrapped since I know I'll never be able to properly clean it again w/o taking it apart again.

If you follow the instructions to the tee, you should have no problems. I've had mine on for a couple of years now and all is good.

I wish I would have had my roof wrapped prior to installation, that is a great idea! I remove my RTT once a year and manage to wash and hand wax the roof from between the slats, it IS a real PITA though, LOL.

It is an awesome rack, I think you will like it.

Very happy, and the wife is thrilled which is what matters since the FJ is hers.
