The air dam is concave and custom made to fit exactly the curved front of the rack so I don't see a way to modify it to fit the stock Toyota rack.jreedar:
Thanks for posting this.
In addition to knowing the height above the white roof (pic with ruler would be great), some more pics of the air dam/fairing would be great.
I wonder if it would work with the factory rack?
Or, could I modify the factory rack and make it work?
Thanks I'm glad you like - I couldn't be happier with it and wouldn't trade it for any other.At this point, I'm kicking myself for buying the factory rack. This one is the sh!t.
I am lifted - I have OME 883s on the front and Daystar 1 1/2 inch spacer in the rear. Measuring from the plastic fender flare to the ground I have:Looks good J.
Just out of curiosity... what made you go with the half rack over the full?
Are you lifted?
Thanks, I've had to for a couple months now and really like it a lot, stands out from all the others and with the air deflector and the placement of the front of the rack starting about a 1/3 of the way back from the front there's very little wind noise on the interstate at high speeds. Also it's built extremely solid, the roof will cave in before this rack bends.Thanks for sharing your pix. They were very helpful.
I agree that the half rack looks good and has plenty of storage capacity for everyday use.
One question: What is the distance between the struts?
I'm wondering if I should "mesh" it or not.
Without the fairing it looks just like the full rack in the front, here's a pick http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/interior-exterior-visual-tech/17493-arb-roof-rack-install-pics-guide.html?highlight=arb+rack#post283735I love this rack and I think I want one. I can't say I love the look of the wind fairing though..........what does it look like without it?
In person proportionally on top of the FJ it looks perfect to me and it still has enough cargo area for hauling anything I need for hunting, camping or vacationing. The usable interior cargo area is 50" x 44", plenty for my needs.I agree this is the best-looking one. Does it not look too far back in person?
Here's where the rack attaches from above in the front to the mount connects that are in the original holes:That's the best looking aftermarket rack yet. Can you show a closeup of the roof attach points?
