    I have a '99. If you end up making one that'll fit my rig, I'm interested. Thanks! @LandCruiserPhil

    A 99 model can be easily fabbed similar to the 80 set up.
    A cautions for the DIY is if you use the full 2x4 grid sheet your 2nd row passengers have a good chance of hitting their heads on the rack.:eek: Our late model 100 rack is cut down to 18" to avoid this. We also strengthen the cut end of the rack to match the factory end.

    Just sent out the last 3 rack from our beta testing run and they have been meet with very positive feedback.
    Racks will be a stocking item in the week to come.

    A couple installation hint:
    The spacer that come with the rack are used in installation on the LX470 and not needed on the Land Cruiser
    Additional washer included is slightly more spacing is needed. We have found all LX470 and Land Cruiser are always slightly different.
    Install a supplied screw in one side to support the rack as you start the other side. (see photo)
    Start all screws by hand first, being 1.0 threads they are very easy to strip.
    Rack should be hand tight only.
    DO NOT put anything on the rack that you would not want thrown at your head.
    Carabiner work well for keeping rack items in place
    An Attic Rack eliminates your ability to use 3rd row sitting.
    Remove your 3rd row seat with an Attic Rack install
    Attach paint can picture is an excellent color match for gray interior

    Wish you had one of these for an early, uneven 100. I especially wish you had one for the 200... :hillbilly:

    I did spend about an hour looking at 200 Attic Rack per your request.;) The sliding 2nd row sets much higher than 100 & 80 making head clearance more of an issue combined with narrower rear you get less storage than the smaller 100 rack.

    Sorry if I missed it, but do these work for the 80's and if so, how much headroom compromised for second row passengers?

    Attic racks made cheap and easy - 80 series

    Be aware you want 1/4" grid wall. Im currently having a hard time finding 1/4 all I can find is 3/16 too light IMO

    So can someone purchase the rack section for the 03-07 LC100 and mod it to work in the 98-02 rigs?

    I'm headed out toda to chec out my handle config but I know they are different. My 3rd row seats and belts are out already and I'm not completely sold on the BROG soft nylon unit.

    Thanks,
    GB

    You be better served to get a grid panel and work with a local fabricator. In the end you will be much happier with the looks and function over any soft rack. Make several and cover your cost:idea:

    Thanks Phil,

    Which rack segment do you recommend?

    If possible I have a Lowes, Home Depot, and Tractor Supply all pretty local.

    None will have the best stuff. I use 1/4" 3" on center grid wall used for store display. Be aware of the clearance needed for the protection of the heads of the 2nd row occupants.
