    i was gonna wait until next weekend to bother with it, but you motivated me. sort of a pain, as it needed some aluminum shims made up.

    it'll work until my dual tip comes in and i need to cut down the exhaust .

    I’m assuming you mean “under the headliner”?

    Today I installed the Toyota power tail gate lock. The wire clips were a pain and I thought I was going mad because I couldn't find the body wire harness on the passenger side all the videos said to tie it up with. Turns out US SR SR5 don't have it because it doesn't have the bed outlet. I would have not know if not for this awesome group.

    And the results of yesterdays mod the MattGecko LED under hood light kit. I hope I never need to repair the truck at night but even if you need to see to jump start someone this light is so nice to have.

    Good luck! Spent a good bit of my Father’s Day attempting to install the OEM rack. This after receiving two shipped racks (from a dealership), both of which lacked the hardware kit. Finally got a hardware kit shipped separately and had a little time for the install today. Was going fairly well until I went to thread the bolt for the right hand swing arm…and there was nothing to thread it into (note the empty square space below). WTF
    08D6F33B-2026-47B9-A2E9-0D363CB87AA1.jpg 91AB8F26-FD61-444A-9281-324A7A66E6EA.jpg
    After consulting the left hand side of the rack (see below), looks like a square nut and o-ring spacer should have been in the empty slot and held in place by those retaining clips.
    8E1C74A3-43C1-4D15-AA07-88441055F934.jpg
    So uninstall the right hand side of the rack. The nut is nowhere to be found inside rack or in the shipping box. Make a run to the hardware store to see if they happen to have anything that will work…no joy. Think about trying to jury rig something and decide better given that the thing will be used to hold items at speed on the highway.

    Remove the rack, spend time stripping the foam washers and supplemental RTV (that has now set), apply silicone tape over the holes I had to make in the factory seals, and reinstall the original weather stripping. Luckily I didn’t break the weather stripping retaining ditch clips off as the Toyota rack installation instructions indicated (why?).

    So spent the afternoon sweating my ass off in the garage and am not sure if or what other parts I might be missing at this point. I mean this was supposed to be a pre-assembled component…not even part of the hardware kit. Where is the quality control on these things? Where is the quality in general? And why do I still want one?

    Test fitted an All-Pro P/N 3510-AP spindle gusset today. Wheel clearance was a risk, because my wheels measured to 5.0" backspacing while instructions said 4.75" max, but being 17"s probably helped.

    So sorry to hear this. You would think going with the OEM roof rack you wouldn't have these problems. I am still stuck on what roof rack I want to get. I'll wait it out until it becomes clear. But this is super disappointing to hear as I was leaning for the OEM roof rack on the roof and then the Leitner system for the bed.

    I know that can be really frustrating ... so sorry to hear that.

    You will not regret the Leitner. I installed mine at I think the beginning of 2018 and it is a fantastic system. If I remember correctly they were only $1,100 when I bought mine so I could see the current price as being a deterrent. A couple of my buddies have gotten the ACS since, one a Chevy Bison and the other a Jeep Gladiator and they love theirs too. I will say I do not think the forged rack is total overkill.
    The tent I run is 200 lbs but the classic tube rack has never faultered on any of the trails I have taken it on high speed or crawling.

    The only downside I have found is you lose bed width due to the vertical supports that mount to the rear d ring/tie down points.
    I only run my tent when I'm going camping though and the ACS in combination with the prinsu roof rock works great for long materials and flat goods.
    Long winded post but I just wanted to provide my experience with it.

    What rear bumper is that? I love my RCI, but I feel like people are always asking if someone makes a non-high clearance bumper with a swingout.

    I ran mine just like you are thinking and was a 5 min. Job. Just ran the cable from the front camera to the driver side A Pilar cover and made sure to use a plastic tool to help me tuck it in behind the headliner. Then just continued along the rubber seal to that center pillar cover and continued through the back door rubber seal until I made it to the back.

    The other one that keeps showing up has some channels on the top that I don't like (for another divider?) so I jumped all over this one. :)
