    I heard you Texans got some snow today. Some family that lives down that way sent some pictures out of the blue (not pun intended) and I was shocked!

    No, it is only held by the 8 factory bolts. But, only a small percentage of the shear force you're describing is transferred directly to the hardware. Consider that a two-piece system joined with tensioned bolts is no longer solely reliant on the bolt's resistance to shear. Instead, a large amount of frictive force between the two plates is providing most of that. This is true for almost every system joined by bolts, if mounting surfaces are properly in plane with one another. We'd never be able to bolt together building frames and bridge trusses if they were only held in place by the bolts themselves.

    [​IMG]

    Similarly, the rack is no longer solely dependent on the bolts to resist shear. The rails are firmly snugged to the roof and have become an interdependent system. This is as much true of this rack as it is the factory rack, with its wide mounting feet.The rubber weatherstripping on the roof seams provides a small amount of damping, as well as the firm silicone washers that the mounting plates are sandwiched between.

    I will agree that there is no way this rack has been as thoroughly engineered and tested as a factory rack system. But it's considerably less dependent on isolated bolt shear than other racks with a similar aesthetic.

    Agree with all points made - still stand by the belief that people with aftermarket racks will be more prone to overloading. Another point to the diagram you provided is that decrease on the pressure to the bolt provided by the two pieces sandwiched together is also dependent on how the pressure is distributed between the two plates - in our case roof rack’s mounting peg and the roof of the car. I doubt that the peg and the roof are contour-conforming and then add in the fact that there is a gasket between the two which will inevitably provide slip.
    But we are biking the heck out of it now. Lol my point was that for sensible loading stock rails are more than sufficient and do provide advantage over going aftermarket which can provide with false sense of durability causing people to be more likely to overload. For an RTT stock rails and those Yakima bars are far beyond sufficient

    All good points. And yes we are nuking it haha. For the most part, I never planned on strapping heavy accessories up there- no plans for a rooftop tent as I find the cons outweigh the pros. And as an irony, I ended up purchasing a Yakima cargo box for loading up gear, which I could have done with a factory rack. Ah well!

    Yes. This extension can be folded for compact storing. It took about 2 hours...

    :thumbsup: Yes! I have them, and fogs too (thanks to Black Friday sales). I just haven’t had time to install them yet. Been working on the Tundra instead.

    Well, i made the mistake of taking our '19 4Runner through a mechanical car wash Friday. Yesterday, I noticed the "shark fin" antenna wasn't sitting flush with the roofline. I attempted to push the cover back down and in place, but there is a still a gap. i suppose I will need to make a service appointment. I have read that water will get through and to the headliner if it isn't repaired. :(

    Are those two brackets coming off the main switch removable to where is a completely flat surface for mounting? I’m wondering if I could drill a hole and double sided tape that switch panel right under that vent. I know SDHQ makes a replacement panel for that area for a spod but not sure how it would work with this panel

    A follow-up to my satellite antenna situation. It will cost us $523.96 to repair. i take it in tomorrow. Good thing they said the roof isn't bent, so there is that. Lesson learned! My two babies...
