    I have a '16 Limited and it has that rack on top that I really don't like. It's just my girlfriend and I, so we really don't need external cargo space. I'd like to remove the roof rack and rails, but I don't know if there are any OE filler panels for the mounting channels under the rack. I've looked at every permutation of 4Runner on the Toyota website and they all seem to have roof rails, so I'm thinking not but you never know if you don't ask.

    Does anyone know if Toyota makes/sells filler panels for the roof rack mounting points?

    No problem, post up some pictures when you get it done. Curious to see what it looks like.

    I ordered the roof rack delete kit off Ebay and took it off, I will never use it, it's silver and doesn't match the truck well, the roof rack makes waxing/washing the roof a bit more difficult, I like the clean look better. Word of warning, be very careful if you use a screwdriver to pry off the covers, do not put any downward force even if using a rag, I managed to put a tiny dent in the vehicle before using a plastic pry tool from my dent repair kit. Duh, why I didn't use that initially is beyond logical thought.

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    That's one beautiful rig.

    I agree 100%, slick roof and everything else on that looks very sharp.

    Bringing a thread back from the dead!! I’m thinking the same with my Pro. No need for a roof rack. But I’m going to hold on to my Pro rack just Incase.
