    I am in the process of building a custom roof rack. My question is, what is the best way to mount to top of fj-62. I do not feel my factory bars will support a loaded rack. I have looked at Thule. Are these the best way? Is there a way to make some mounts? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, those are nice!!

    The link I posted for the commercial racks is one of very few I found that I felt comfortable with on weight capabilities. Although the second link in Mike's post will hold up to 660lbs.

    Depends on what you need it for; all look like they'd be good for a base platform.

    If you want to go with rain gutter mounts ( I would), look for "Quik N Easy." I bought some from Specter in the 4 inch version. They're fairly inexpensive and for the money are pretty decent. I ordered the shorter ones and had to add a couple of washers to get enough space to completely clear the center of the roof (on an fj60). But I was going for low profile.
