    Bought my wife a 4Runner OR Premium this weekend. Problem is that it's hitting the clearance sign in her work garage. I figure removing the roof rails might solve the problem. Has anyone done it? Removing it isn't the issue - that's just a few bolts. But does anyone know the parts number for the plastic bits that will go where the void is from where the old rails were mounted? Thanks.

    Does it have the shark fin antenna? I think that’s as tall as the roof rails.

    She's at work so I can't check but I imagine it does.

    I guess based on the low ceiling of the parking garage, a lift and tires is out of the question.

    This must be a tiny parking garage if a 4Runner can’t fit.
