    Roof Rack on 4Runner

    I have a 2000 4Runner with a factory roof rack. I'm looking for a roof rack that will fit. (Thule perhaps).

    Is there an option of getting the mounts that fit directly on my factory Toyota rack? What is the simpliest solution for factory roof racks?

    Thanks

    I would suggest looking into a hitch rack. Thule makes an awesome one:

    You don't have to take off the wheel, work to get it on top of the vehicle, or fear the garage. I have seen way too many nice rigs destroyed by a garage.

    Otherwise, rocky mounts has a fork mount tray that sets up to factory racks:

    I actually already have a T2 rack, and its a sweet rack!

    I know the T2 has extensions to fit 2 more bikes. But I'm looking for a roof mount just add one more bike. Sometimes its a hassle taking on and off the hitch mount. I can leave the roof mount on all the time.

    Anyone here use the Rocky Mount Noose?

    my first post, big moment. anyway, yes, i have a rocky mount noose. i had it on my factory chevy roof-rack for about a year and i love it. i bought a 4Runner two weeks ago that didn't come with a factory rack so i bought a yakima rack and the noose fits on there as well. it has served me well and i recommend it to anyone.

    Actually think that Thule needs to enroll in some engineering design classes after this weekend. Had a T2 on the back of the Jeep and it ejected the X-5 off the back over a speed hump at 15 mph. What is up with that?
