    Hello, I'd like to introduce my new venture. I have been producing simple/durable roof racks, fridge slides, and tent mount solutions in the Fort Worth, Texas area.

    Currently, I've built roof racks for GX470, 4th Gen 4Runner's, and soon to come LX470 / 100 series. I build racks that work with the factory side rails, or full replacement racks.

    I keep my website updated, but please contact me direct to confirm the order intent, any minor customizations needed, and shipping options.

    www.KeenanOffroadFab.com

    Thanks!

    That's BS, I'm supposed to be the only Keenan around here. In 37 years I've only met one other one in person. GL with the venture!

    Will do. I plan to make a 3/4 rack to work with factory side rail & custom aluminum wind deflector for the LX470. Full rack replacement will be custom order for the 100 series (just not enough 100s around to keep any in stock). I have some Gamiviti mounts on hand, let me know if I can help. I can knock out a rack in a day.

    100 series sliders would be great locally! Can’t wait for the rack.

    I’ll second that. I’ve tried to get the metal tech/opor sliders on sale a few times but shipping always kills it.

    Do you have a shop and operating hours? I might swing by sometime and just chat since you’re close.

    So sorry for the long response, I didn't have this set for notifications. I'm not setup to make sliders. My good friend in town owns Tandem Offroad Automotive in Fort Worth and I believe he has a design already for 100 series sliders. Give the shop a call and ask for Pablo or Alex and they can take care of you. Save you the shipping cost!

    What are the details on your fridge slides? Dont see them on the site.

    I took them off the site a while back to focus more on custom built slides. Unless otherwise requested I use 500lb dual locking slides, 14 gauge full bottom drawer pan, and a custom fit base that will bolt direct to third row seat mounts (or generic if you have another way to mount it). The drawer pan is slotted for tie down straps. The end goal is to build a heavy duty slide that fits your particular fridge to save as much interior space as possible and retain use of one side of the 3rd row seat, and will last many many years if the slides are maintained. All units come powdercoated (or galvanized if you like). Here's an early one I built for our GX (it's been cut and modified a few times so not as clean as one I would sell). A unit for a 60l fridge will weigh about 50lbs. Generally around $400.

    There are cheaper options out there, but these are rugged and an easy option for owners that don't want to drill the floor in their truck or have a piece of plywood as a base.

    That fridge slider looks pretty good.

    It definitely works! We had this particular one in a LX470 in a heavy collision and it took the beating bolted to the third row seat mounts... the fridge lid snapped off though. Now it lives in a GX470. (No one was seriously hurt, which is why I recommend land cruisers for family)

    Finished up a wind deflector for a customer. Cleaned up the look and a bit quieter. If anyone is interested in a wind deflector for an existing rack, send me a template and I can make it work! Thanks.
