I would love to see pics of what you’ve made (and how) as I’m trying to figure how how to make some myself! Thanks in advance ?2 things:
1. the fixed and adjustable end clamps are not interchangeable. The roof rack narrows toward the rear of the FJ and the clamps are angled to match this taper.
2. I have repaired broken clamps by using aluminum tubing with 1.75" I.D. Cut tubing to match the length of broken part. Then split (cut) that piece into 2 half cylinders. Use 2 flat head screws countersunk to attach the half cylinder to the broken clamp. The screws go on each side of the insert for the clamp piece. They will to long enough to stick into the hollow space on each side of the the insert. Fill the hollow space with JB Weld Steel Epoxy. Don't clog up the clamp insert area. Paint Black and glue a thin strip of rubber on the inside of the half cylinder to protect the roof rack.
