    I've been considering whether or not to put a roof rack on my double cab. The only one i've seen is the OEM rack. Any suggestions or opinions as to whether it's worth the expense

    hey there... where in VA are you located??

    i've got the factory roof rack on mine... in my opinion it looks nice... but unless you purchase a basket or something else to attach to it its pretty useless on its own... would work great for hauling snowboards/skis or a kayak or something of that nature though.

    It's not for me by themselves, but if you were to throw a basket or cross beams then it would even out.

    I don't like the way the truck looks with just the stock rails.

    If you put a basket up there full of awesomeness then I like it.
