crewmax roof racks

hey everyone,

so there are threads all over the place about roof racks, custom roof racks and yada yada yada. thought i would start a general thread for crewmax roof racks. if you have one, and feel comfortable doing so, name the brand and a price range and also how you like it.

thanks

Asked a local weld shop about building me a rack like the one on Ox's Tundra, they gave me an estimate of 500-800 just looking at pics. Thinking about it! If I knew how to weld I'd do it myself...all I can do is turn wrenches.

im the same way, ive got a buddy who is a union welder, never seen someone weld as cleanly as he does, he also welds for our local antique/vintage harley shop. i might go buy the materials and have him mock it up and do it, that is the best looking rack ive seen but 2500 dollars from WCC is rediculous

^ thats not a roof rack, just a light bar, the light bar on that truck looks similiar to the front of the defender racks, i dunno if its just me , but those defender racks look huge around the light, where as the "ox rack" has the front angled and it follows the windshield curve, the sides arent to high, its not too high off the roof, and it doesnt mount on those stupid ass cross bars, only on its own feet.

another thing i have been introduced to is the racks at rhino rack, they make platform racks and mesh baskets, but cant find something that really meets my needs/wants

Im currently working on a set up right now for my truck. Its not a "roof" rack but more of an above my truck bed rack.

I am installing a Thule Xsporter utility rack with a Surco S5060 safari rack above the bed of the truck. I will mount a spare 37 on the safari rack.

Rack should be here today and I already have the Thule.

Ill get pics when it is installed. It might be a while. I have to fabricate some mounts for the tire, rack to rack, and I think I am going to reinforce the rack some more to add a little more support for the weight of the 37.

Take a look at the surco racks. best priced on amazon. I looked at a lot and these were best priced and could easily be upgraded, altered, reinforced for my needs.

I have a double cab so I can't pull a measurement... What's the measurement from the front windshield to the start of the contour of the rear roof line. just as it starts to turn down to the rear glass?

*** Everyone With A CrewMax***

What are you looking for in a roof rack?

Height/width/length, Design, function, lights front, light rear, lights sides, quiet, finish, mounting, spare tire, hook loops, easily removable, roof contour, windshield contour, stealthy, ?????
Lets hear your input.

thanks

the perfect rack

for some reason my comp wont let me post the better pictures of this rack that i have.



i want a rack that is:

low to the roof (but still has enough room for me to open my sunroof)
mounts using feet in the rain gutters and does not use rails
something with low side walls but high enough to keep stuff in
front light bar that follows window contour (ie isnt sticking way out like defender light bars)
-note how the top of the front light bar is even with the top of the rest of the rack.... that is key
mesh bottom
tubular not square tubing

NOT 2500 dollars !!!!!! haha

I measured and will post the crummy pics in a little. It looks like at the highest point it's an inch and a half high. So 2 inches will clear it

the pictures are below, that 1 1/2 is from the top of the roof to the top of the sunroof when it is open, now if i measured from the rain gutters, looking across the roof to the top of the sunroof it looks like it would be 3 inches but i couldnt get the measurement as i only had one set of hands
