    So the quality control on Prinsu racks ain't great then. For some reason I thought they're a bolt together then screw down on the factory roof inserts?...,good to know...I will most likely go with UpTop or Victory 4x4...

    Oh no, the Prinsu is a fantastic product and absolutely 100% bolt on. It's the factory weather strip in the roof rail that I'm talking about. Unless Uptop or Victory provide their own stripping to replace the factory stripping, which I don't think they do, you'll have the same experience with those.

    im kinda old school. I dont use a buffer or any tools like that. I just apply it with an applicator and go around the whole truck (usually soaked after since I am in muggy Florida) and usually by the time I get all the way around i can start removing it with a soft microfiber towel.

    Oh I will. This year I might actually have a friend to ice fish with too! My buddy is moving back to MN this winter, he spent all last year in Maine ice fishing while his wife made the big money.

    Pull the trim piece out and use blue tape alongside the channel on the roof to mark where the bolt holes are on the tape. Put the trim piece back on and transfer your markings from the blue tape onto the trim piece.

    Remove trim piece and flip it over, then put Sharpie marks roughly an inch outside from your where you marked your hole locations. Using dykes, snip through the metal spine on either side of your hole marks. Use a boxcutter to slide through the rubber and remove the channel piece of trim with metal spine that presses into the channel on the roof. This will leave you with just a thin piece of rubber between where you made your snips.

    Use a 19mm hammer punch to make your holes. You risk damage if drilling. The punch is the quickest, cleanest method.

    After assembling my Prinsu, I had it mounted in about 60 minutes from start to finish. The holes in the trim piece lined up dead solid perfect with the roof bolt holes. The Prinsu roof spacers then fit nice and snug into the trim piece holes, eliminating any chance of water intrusion(I still used silicone).

    I used this method on my Tacoma & a buddy’s Tundra, and the results for both were so dead on that they look like a factory install.

    Punch is def the cleanest. I could find one anywhere locally, so ended using 3/4" drill bit for wood holes. Did not make the cleanest holes, but 99% you can't see once the spacers are in and the rack installed, so called it good.

    nah...the pine needles are a sign of use!! Just like bruises and cuts are for Mountain/BMX riders...if there is not mud and blood, you didn't do it right!! All trucks need a little dirt on 'em

    I am soooo jealous of all of that!!! Did you do any camping? Where is that?
