Any suggestion / links on how to mount a couple bikes to my OEM roof rack?
Looking for where to purchase bike mounting hardware.

Thanks for you help :cheers:

I ran two Yakima High-Rollers for about a year and a half before I got a BajaRack and switched everything up. I loved those racks - you keep both tires on and it doesn't touch the frame. I used Universal Mighty Mounts to attach them to the stock cross bars. I used them every weekend for two mountain bikes and never had an issue. I also took a few cross country trips and even wheeled with a bike up there and it held up great! I wouldn't roll more than two though as the cross bar tends to sag a little with any additional weight.

Here's one of the only pics I can find:

I had a set of Yalkima Highrollers for sale when you picked up the roof rack. Wish I knew.
Yakima makes great stuff. The Highrollers are very nice. I used mine on my old DD and it held the bikes well with minimal movement.
Seemed like a PIA to mount them on the FJ though.
I ended up getting a 1upusa hitch mount rack. Check them out.

I used to use a hitch rack but get rear-ended once with 3 bikes totalling $15,000 and you'll change your mind.:boohoo:

But I loved the Highrollers when I had them and now I'm using the raptors withuot the tray and they work great.

If you're on a budget, check out Inno. I have a couple and love them. I do some mountain biking here and the ability to fit fat tires on the rack is a big plus and these do it easily. They retail for about $120 but if you look around you can find some good deals. Got mine for $65 a piece from chainlove.com. :rocker:

Oh and they will mount on the OEM rack without additional parts.
