    Getting ready to head from Indiana back to Texas. How much weight do I dare add to my full-length ARB roof rack for the trip. Gifts were bulky, and heavy this year....

    Thanks,
    Garth

    I think 250lb is what Toyota says you can carry on the roof, but I have had 500+lbs on my Wilderness rack(ARB is prolly stronger) with no problems.

    OEM is about 100 lbs. I loaded it up with Slee slider and some other stuff over 150lbs. It was over the max but it held up.
