    Thanks everybody.

    Tri: Being pretty new at all this, I didn't really know where to go. I did the research and settled on the Thule. Then I went to their website. They have a great "Fit Guide" that narrows down what you need. Worked super awesome for me. Anyway, I had to get the whole kit and kaboodle. I got the feet, kit (to mount on the truck), pair of load bars and the fairing (the wind-deflector on the front), w/ shipping it was $399. Probably pricey to some but I didn't want to order it from some jack leg or off ebay cuz you never know what shape they really are in. Anyway, $399 in all.

    Here's the link to Thule's website: http://thule.com/ (just click on "Fit Guide", it's the second option at the top).

    Looks good. Any wind noise? I had a roof rack on a previous 2007 FJ Cruiser and you could hear wind noise when traveling at highway speeds.

    Taco4x4: Man, I have no wind noise to speak of. It's awesome. I guess we put that mother on good. It sounds just like it did before I had it. I've tested at speeds up to 95 mph on the interstate and it doesn't make a peep.

    Rotor and Trico: I plan mostly on carrying my big wakeboard bag to the lake this summer. It's long and narrow with a board, bindings, vest, and rope in it. It took up a lot of space in the bed and limited the space I had for all the other stuff ( 4 gas jugs, cooler, other peoples crap). I thought about getting the board accessorie to go with the rack but it wont carry bindings so I'm just gonna strap it down and go. I'll carry anything else I feel or need too also but I got it mostly for the long lake weekends. First time I strap that bag up, I'll put some pics on here.

    be cautious with just strapping things to the rack...I used to fear for my bike whenever i had it on top of my car, and that was actually in a rack!!!hahaha
