    Hey I'm going to do a diy roof rack for my 2017 red premium. Looking to get some ideas or feed back from anyone with a roof rack. Also want to see if any one has a diy roof rack on their t4r that they want to share.

    2004 Limited v8
    3" Rancho, 2.5" Delrin BL, 1.5" Supreme Spacer Lift, 35" Cooper MTP, Chopped Fenders, Racing buckets, 1.5" Spidertrax
    Full length I did last year then sold. Full length with sunroof.
    PROS: Great storage, was able to mount offroad lights on it, ran limb risers at one point,
    CONS: Without a ferring, it howled above 30 mph until I put lights on it, SUPER heavy (made from DOM), scratched the paint trying to lift it up there myself.

    Half length I did when I first bought the rig.
    PROS: light, slid into stock roof rails, easily removable, very sturdy, was able to mount a light bar across the front
    CONS: Until I used some 1/8" expanded steel, the rack would hum, not as much storage space.
