Slapped the frontrunner roof rack on yesteday am. Solo....steps to do it by yourself, not scratch the paint, and not blow your ballZ our are below...

i didn’t need the flat dolly. But i used that to roll It out of the garage. Flipped it onto the old floor mats, so as not to scratch it up...

i laid it against the truck with the front up, and had the unused carpet kit fender pieces on the roof. Lift carefully and slide it up the side, making sure that the carpet is under it all the way....works like a champ.

once up, i spin it. And use a couple of them “doubled-up” 2x4’s To get the height to put the feet on.....(normally you’d have the feet loosely in place....but that makes the solo job about impossible to not scratch up the truck)

then you just add the feet....and button up....40 min start to finish piddling at my pace........

anyhoo....I ordered the “tall kit” from Fontrunner....and, yep....its tall....I’m going to get the shorter legs and Lower it....so....

I really wanted him to finish his 55 to FJ60 axle fj80 suspension conversion brackets because i have a set of 60 axles and want to put them under the 55 on coils and was looking forward to seeing a set of brackets to make all that happen. But he scrapped those after some folks started quizing him on the geometry calcs.
