Hello Fellow Sand-Lovers,:051:

I was wondering about experiences with roof racks on FJ's.

I find that camping with 2 adults, a child and a large dog is a bit of a challenge with an FJ as it becomes a bit difficult to get all in. So now wondering if I should install a roof rack.

Please share your idea, suggestion and thoughts about this.

Best racks for camping, place to go for install/buy etc.

Thank you
Bart

It would be very unfair for a dog, to transport him on the roof ...:016:

this would be interesting. I like the shape of the stock roof rack shall we say but i think the 'baja' one has a little more storage options, securing points etc

the main problem with fj roof rack is the wind sound on speeding above 120 km/h. if your not speeder then its a good feature, formal and functional.

Hello there,

Can anyone tell me if there's a place in the UAE I can buy a BAJA Roof Rack?

I found a website blingmytruck.com saying that they are an online store based on the UAE, have anyone ever bought anything from it?

Just checked, couldn't find it :(

I need the best roof rack that will work as a platform on top of my FJ, the OEM one looks really nice but it's kind of useless. I wanna be able to put a mattress on the roof of the FJ when the weather is good and setup a regular popup tent (Not a roof top tent) when it's cold.

Anyone know where i can get something like the Baja or Gobi? ARB has a good one but it sells for 4,100 without installation.
