Any recomendations on whether I should buy the following from the dealer or are they easy to buy and install after markert?
Towing reciever hitch and wire harness
roof rack (although I am not sure I even want one.) Is it quieter without the rack?
I haven't bought one yet but plan to early next year.
Super easy to install after market. You can buy a stock rack cheap on craigs list. I see them all the time from $150 to $250
I'd get the hitch, but buy sliders and rack aftermarket. They're both pretty straight forward to install.
get the hitch. if you want a rack, save your money and buy an aftermarket rack that is more useful... same with sliders.
speaking of racks, someone selling a gobi stealth rack http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ladder-ca.html.
