Hey all,

I was just wondering what people had done as far as the roof rack options for a kzj-95? I am looking at putting a rtt on, and maybe a solar panel+battery. Then a Jerry can holder. Thanks for the input.

Hi Jay
If you haven't got a rack yet here's an option. This is what I put on my 95. I love this rack,it's super strong and has an extremely useful "T" slot system in the crossbars to allow simple attachments. I use it for my RTT as well and had a Solar panel up there for a trip.
Check out Frontrunner online. They are in the US but actually list the Prado.
Cheers... K

we could make you one at Gamiviti... would be able to include anything you've seen from any of the 55, 60, 70, and 80 series, as they all use the same tower system. Would just need a few measurements- send an email or PM if you'd like to explore that, thanks!

70 series rack, for one example:

Thanks Buggy,
Have you noticed that the rtt is too heavy for the non linked rack? Or does the tent itself anchor it well. That is a great lower cost option, though I think I would try to go with 3 crossbars.

I built a frame that kind of links the crossbars together and provides a place for a cargo basket as well as a platform for lumber etc. or just standing on. I was planning to go with three crossbars but the end cost with our dollars was a bit much.
Three would be a good idea to transfer the load into your roof gutters.
The custom setup nakman suggested would be sweet. That's the beauty of the gutters. There's many options out there.
I personally preferred the original factory Toyo roof basket you see here on my previous RZJ with the six towers but I foolishly let it go with the rig. Not sure you would ever find one of those now unless someone wanted to let it go off their import.

Cheers
