    Hello TacomaWorld!


    My name is Drew and I handle technical design and application as well as sales here at upTOP Overland. Some of you may have already seen our R&D thread HERE

    For those of you that have been watching, thank you! For those of you just joining us, welcome! This thread is going to serve as a point of sale and ongoing FAQ thread for those of you interested. It is subject to change and this post will be edited often to accommodate new questions, products and pricing. It will be managed primarily by myself with the help Micah, Jacob and Mike aka @upTOPoverland , @NonTraditional and @3Six. Let’s get right into it, the products!

    4RUNNER:
    • The Alpha 4R: $1499
      • Low profile rack solution for 5th Generation Toyota 4Runners. MASSIVE 98.5" length and 50.00" width makes the most of your roof top Realestate. How Big? Big enough for a 3 person soft RTT in the back and another 40" of rack space in front of it. The upTOP™ NO DRILLING REQUIRED solution includes our pressureFOOT system for the forward most supports giving you the load capacity you need for your adventure without the need to drill and tap holes in your drip rails. Our proprietary side armor system from the Tacoma transitions to the 4Runner and allows a discrete channel for elevated electrical wiring that can be color matched to the vehicles exterior. Three grab handles per side allow you to safely access your gear.

    TUNDRA:

    • The Alpha Double Cab 2014+: $1199
      • The upTOP™ Alpha for the Tundra Double Cab truck stretches our offering to cover the Tacomas bigger brother. Massive 54.5" internal width on the load bars gives you more space than any other option on the market. Our unique two sided design allows wiring to be neatly clipped in between the two layers to stay protected and hidden. Check out our optional prewired harnesses under the "Electrical" section for vehicle specific harness solutions that will have your lighting, solar, air and water tapped and installed in no time. The stock build consists of our inner/outer grooveTEK/armorTEK in a textured Stealth Black powder coat. Color match sides can be added as an option for an additional color match cost. All racks ship with the knockouts for our scenePOD 3D housings (NOT INCLUDED) custom made for either Baja Designs or Extreme LED rock lights. This gives you the option of adding the scenePOD at a later date by simply snipping small tabs instead of having to cut on your new roof rack. INCLUDES four (4) grab handles, two per side.

        *The Tundra roof rack solution DOES REQUIRE DRILLING and installing RivNuts into your factory drip rail. The lack of a factory option for a roof rack means that you don't have mount points for attaching your new upTOP rack until you make them. We include all the required hardware for performing this modification and our technical support staff is available for questions and to assist you during your installation.
    LEXUS:

    • The Alpha GX470 - 2002-2009: $1349
      • The Lexus GX470 is one of the overland communities best kept secrets. Capable of conquering any terrain and reaching the most remote campsites all that might be lacking is an effective storage solution and a place to mount your collapsible home away from home. Adhering to the upTOP philosophy that bigger is better we release the GX470 roof rack with HUGE 50" load bars with our adjustable slide configuration allowing the bars to be shifted 1" in either direction for perfect alignment with all the latest gear. Using the existing OEM roof rack mounting locations allows you to assemble this rack on the ground and attach it to the roof in one assembly with no drilling required. Our unique two wall construction with grooveTEK and armorTEK sides provides a convenient channel for concealing and protecting your wiring for lights, solar, etc... Available color match side armor options will have this on your rig looking as good as it performs. With the same options for fairings, side lighting as the other upTOP Alpha racks you really can configure this system for your exact needs. Our grab handles are included (6 total, 3 per side) allowing you a sturdy point to grab ahold of and access the roof of the GX.

        *This rack fits your 2002-2009 Lexus GX470 known internationally as the J120.

    Rack Options:

    • The Alpha Color Match: $149
      • Don't feel like painting the side armor yourself? We can do it for you! Lead times can run as high as an additional 7 business days because we want to deliver the highest quality powder coat finish as possible. Patience.....is a good thing here. We've worked directly with multiple powder coat brands to ensure we have the best color match for the 3rd Gen Tacomas while sacrificing none of the strength and durability powder coat is known for.

Our pins are always full of mud, sand, ice and snow and this tool eases a little of the frustration that comes with being stuck. Once your rig is back on the trail you can flip the tool around and use it to crack open your favorite beer. Cheers!
    • Grab Handles: $119

    FAQs
    • Why upTOP?
      • upTOP came to be because Micah, an engineer, couldn't find exactly what he wanted. He had the necessary skills and tools to build the perfect rack so that's exactly what he did.
    • What are the racks built out of?
      • All racks a constructed with 6062 1/4" aluminum. We have a two layered side rail system that features both our armorTEK and grooveTEK. The bars are a 1" x 2" 80/20 extruded aluminum. The mounting feet and front fairing are also both constructed with 6062 1/4" aluminum.
    • What is armorTEK and grooveTEK?
      • armorTEK is a slick little system that allows us to enhance the aesthetics of the rack on the truck while serving a functional purpose as well. The armorTEKs primary function is to hide and protect the wiring meant for rooftop accessories in a 1/2" channel between the armorTEK and grooveTEK.
      • grooveTEK is our multi-functional tie down system designed to specifically lock in the hook of Perfect Bungee Bungee Cords. The way the teeth kick back the hook is unable to slide down and out from the beating of the trail.
    • What the hell is a thinFIN and why do I need it?
      • The thinFIN is our replacement and solution to the obnoxiously tall shark fin that currently resides on the roofs of our Tacomas. It is 3D printed and finished with a matte black, UV resistant coating. With our thinFIN you can pull the 'guts' of of your stock antenna and place them in ours at 1/3 the height. You still maintain all stock functions and only minor modification is required, you must solder one connection. Additionally, the thinFIN features two holes in the rear that allows you to pass up to 6 - 16 awg wires inside a splitloom per hole.
    • Do you offer lighting packages?
      • Packages per say? No. BUT, we do offer lighting options 360 degrees around the truck. For the front fairing we offer cut outs for dual 10" bars, a single 30" bar or a single 40" bar. On the sides we have paired with @MESO to develop a mount that allows us to mount Baja Designs Rock Lights at a 30 degree angle downward to provide smooth ambient light on the side of the truck. For the rear, on racks equipped with a rear fairing, you will also gain the ability to mount Baja Designs Flush Mount S2s.

    I am very interested in this system. Product looks to be of high quality. I myself am interested in the rack that would go on my camper shell. My shell is a Snugtop Rebel with Yakima tracks installed.
