    FJ Cruiser

    I want to get a roof rack for my FJ but am worried it might be a little difficult to get the bike on and off. Anyone have experience with roof racks on an fj or any bigger SUV?

    Prior to having my Northshore Rack, I hefted my 45lb bikes onto the roof of my Landcruiser! I carried around a small foldable step ladder to make it easier, but the best solution was to change to the new rack.

    I load 16 and 24 foot ladders on my 97 Chrysler town and country van not as big as a SUV, but still pretty big. I just stand in the door frames and on the wheels if I need to.

    If you're well over 6' tall and have long arms, it might not be a problem. Personally, I'd go with a hitch rack w/bike trays.

    Running a Thule set up on the Ergon FJ. It's a bit of a reach, but it can be done. We are happy with this setup as it opens up the inside for lots of product and general storage.
