New from Akron Ohio

Hi,
I picked up my 2011 Calvalry Blue Saturday evening. And I love it.
Has everything on it but the roof rack and the towing hitch I think. They are offering to sell and install the roof rack to me for $479, is this a good deal? Or can I get a better roof rack for close to the same price?

I think other than the rack and maybe adding a hitch sometime this summer, I am going to leave it alone for a while... we'll see

Re: New from Akron Ohio

Hello and welcome! IMO I would not take the OEM roof rack, but would wait and buy something more to your liking at a later date. You will probably pay more than what the OEM will cost, but you will have something you can use. Pictures please.

Re: New from Akron Ohio

Welcome to the gang and congrats on the new rig... lots of good roof rack options for the FJC. And while I like the factory one, it is not the most practical. Check out Baja Racks, ARB and Garvin Industries.
