    So I was able to break them free using vice-grips and a rag do I didn't f the plastic screws up. Tightened by hand and I just lowered the front after measuring the clearance of the board. Cuts it close on the back rail but it does fit. Thanks for the help

    Thanks!

    Ha ha! I think I will post on a different thread to get some photos of people actually using the rack and what they used to secure everything.

    Yeah, I agree, even the standard roof rack isn’t that functional and looks like something off of an old timey station wagon from the 70’s or 80’s. There are lots of great after market options for anyone needing to put stuff on their roof that come with attachments, and accessories to make it easy.

    I like it okay, just depends on what you use a rack for. I can certainly see reasons why you'd want a full rack or a different rack for certain purposes, a roof top tent for one. But, it does look different and is kinda cool for that reason, if you dig its road warrior looks. I haven't had any trouble using it for my large Pelican gear storage boxes, traction boards, and some other normal things, so for me it works fine (not that a Gobi or something else wouldn't work even better). I will say that I don't think the 4 crossbars that it comes with are sufficient, and I think this rack would work much better with one more crossbar, though I haven't yet found out where to get one or even if they are available a la carte (so far online I can only find the whole entire rack for sale). My wife does finance at a Toyota store, so I"m going to have her ask the parts guys if they can order an extra crossbar for it. Would I have preferred a full flat rack? Yes. But this one works just fine for my purposes, so I'm not sure I'll bother replacing it...

    so. Liked for some things but as pointed out - so short as to be useless for ladders, lumber, etc.
    Got one of those "OEM look" kits off ebay and extended mine forward. Extra load bars make for a decent 'bed' now on the lower lever. Upper level I can load with long items, boxes, etc. I guess adding extra feet ups the 'load limit' - which seems way conservative...
    Thule boxes and other rack mounted items clamp on easily enough - extended length lets me move things around more.
