    Probably a dumb question but got to ask...

    The T25 torx driver needed? Is that a socket or screw driver type?? those who have installed them, did u use a socket wrench or screw driver type...??

    driver may be the key word but have to ask.... I did read the instructions...

    Thanks

    Torx is a star like wrench similar to an allen wrench. What exactly are you installing

    <-(714)-> SO-CAL
    TRD intake, JBA "shorty" headers, URD y-pipe
    They come in sockets like these:

    or bits like these:

    When i installed mine, i used the Torx bits for screwdriver. You should be able to buy a kit for ~$10 or less at any local Auto parts or even Wal Mart...

    So you didn't use a rachet? Just screw driver??

    I am installing the OEM roof rack, sorry that wasn't clear...

    For these particular screws, i used the Screwdriver..

    You could use a ratchet with an extension if you want to go that route..
