    Hi everyone! I'm new here from Northern Cali. I have a 2016 T4R SR5 and thinking of getting a good looking roof rack. I'm debating between EcoTechne with ladder and Gobi Stealth Rack. Any ideas or opinion? I got hold of EcoTechne and gotten a quote from them they are $250 cheaper.
    Thanks so much!

    Prinsu might be worth considering too.

    I just got my Ecotechne and I'm happy with it... literally installed it yesterday. It took FOREVER to clear customs in Venezuela.

    They look awesome. The only thing I thought of Gobi is the basket which the Ecotechne doesn't have but they sure do look awesome. If you have the picture you would like to share please do so. much appreciated.

    With all the money you save buy some anchor points and you're golden.

    Wow! Now I'm jealous. It looks amazing! Where did you get all your accessories, i. e, brackets, shovel, jacks, etc?

    The shovel is from Krazy Beaver Tools, the mounts for it are just a Quick Fist mount. The X-Bull recovery tracks are from Amazon and I build the mounting bracket for those. The Hi Lift I got on Amazon, the mounting brackets are for 1-2" tube but I built a mounting solution with some aluminum bar.

    You do have to be creative when mounting but you can modify the mounts so that you don't have to modify the rack itself. The rack is very capable of mounting but it's a little out of the ordinary so there are not a lot of mounting options that work without being a little creative.
