    is anyone aware of any aftermarket crossbars (other than LFD) that tie into the factory roof rails?

    I wanted to keep the factory look so I installed a set of ARTEC INDUSTRIES 5G Venture Cross Rails, there are a few others out there a little cheaper but I really liked the way these are built and IMO great customer service....

    Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for. I really like the simplicity of the LFD cross bars but I've been hearing chatter that their aluminum ones have some wind noise or resonance on the hiway.

    How are the Artec bars in that regard? I'm on the interstate a LOT with unloaded bars so want something relatively quiet.

    All the reason I chose these over others, I put on a lot of highway miles myself. From the looks of the LFD's they sit higher than the rails possibly causing added wind noise where the Artec's sit flush, even with the sun roof open I don't get any more noise than I use to without them. Plus the Artec's are wider and I like that I can use the extra rails as tie down points or leave them off (as shown in my pic) plenty of slots for all kinds of goodies up there, I'll be mounting my RTT in a couple of weeks and seeing I can stand on this rails I'm pretty sure it will be safe up there.

    Are you able to get a wratchet strap under the bars for tying stuff down?

    I looked at these, but they look way to close to the roof. How hard is it to wash and wax under them?

    The same as any rack/after market cross bars, pretty easy to loosen and move

    Yes sir, the side rails that come with them (if ordered) has plenty of slots and there's room on the OEM rails

    They are pricey, but if my LFD cross bars don't ship soon I will have to take a longer look at these. How long of a wait on shipping?

    RAGO's cross bars also work on the LFD 7/8 side rails as well.

    I just looked these up Mike, they are really nice. I couldn't find a price to the one's that Matt posted..

    But for several hundred dollars more, I could get a full size rack. The question is would the cross bar rail's work for supporting a Roof Top Tent? And would tie down straps work when I'm carrying my Kayak?

    When I first got my Runner I purchased these offbrand rails, they served it's purpose but wouldn't use them again for safety issues...Snapchat-2037151238.jpg

    Yeah I believe they would support a roof top tent but as you mentioned for a few dollars more you can have a complete rack. I don't have a boat but here is a video on tie down tips. You may know all this already but hope this helps. The straps can still wrap around the roof rails with any cross bars. I still like the Rok straps more than regular straps.

    When it rains, does water sit in that center groove? Wondering if it gets grungy in that space over time if you're not keeping it wiped out.

    Also, is the height of the crossbars higher than the shark fin? So if you put Sheetrock or plywood up there, will it clear the shark fin?

    Drive faster! ;)

    That's what's so confusing, So many choices, go with what you like/need, as I mentioned I wanted to keep the low profile look and made the right choice for me.

    I'd have to say no to the clearing of the fin, that's why most full racks have cutouts?
    There's a Base Camp truck meet in Fremont Ca on Apr 27th, if you are in area I'll bet you'll see plenty of different options to choose from, or a local gathering

    Haha. I'd like the option to haul a piece of sheet rock (short distance) or a 4x8 sheet of plywood. Or some lumber.

    I'm a 20 year Tacoma veteran. Adjusting to a 4runner is an ongoing process! I really like the T4R but there are those "in a pinch" moments when it sure would be nice to just throw stuff up on the roof. Just searching for the right solution for myself.

    Full racks are nice but I'd honestly rather put that money toward a trailer (which I will eventually do). For now, a couple crossbars will suffice.
