I like the look but I think vided has a good point. Might better come up with a way of temporarily tying the thing down and check for whistling before you get too deep into it. If the airflow over the cab and drag created by the rack are just right(wrong) it could create enough noise be annoying to you. Probably not with the diameter of the tubing but it wouldn't hurt to check.

This is an old post, but I figured I'd try to resurrect it since I cant send PM's until after 25 msgs?

Indeepcamo,
I saw your post mentioning that you install tracks on large trucks. I'm getting ready to do that as well and would really appreciate any guidance or tips you might be able to provide.

I working with a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie (sunroof). I'll be using Thule Top Track. I purchased them with the flarenuts, but I'm not sure how much I trust those. Last time I did this on a 2000 van I droppped the headliner a bit so I could use a large washer and nut to reduce tear-out risk. That vehicle didn't have side pillar airbags to worry me though.

Could you tell me if you use the flare or plus nuts? Any concerns or risks? I assume there are wires for sunroof and the satellite antenna. Any good way to avoid those without dropping headliner?

Thanks for your time.

IF you can get it to fit properly, I like the look of the FJ rack.
