It looks real cool but for the amount of money they are charging I think I could fabricate something way cheaper and light weight and save me the money. All the cool mods are so expencive for the FJ.

i am thinking a simpler L angle frame that bolts down to the four tiedown spots. Sort of what the scorpion rack is but not full height.

I don't get it. Why do you need the side rails when its in the cab already. If you build a box, couldn't you just put stuff on top? With this, don't you need a box to stuff out from underneath? Might as well just put a board on top of the FJ shelve and call it a day.

after looking at it closer, its not that practical. you don't need the cage, only tie downs on the top and the attachment points are kinda of clunky. The shelf is still a way better idea.

Hey people.. this is the FJ we're talking about.


If your not spending $400 to buy something that cost's less than $10 to make and consists of less than $20 worth of materials, THEN YOUR NOT A REAL FJ'ER! :D




A board or box would be your best bet.

If I ever make it back to Industrial metal Supply in Irvine, I will finish my shelf/camp table and I will be very happy. We could have used another table in Mojave, that's fo sho!

I have drawn one up that would fit on TOP of my Tuffy Box. That way I would have protection from loose items flying forward. My idea is similar to this but triangualted braces from the top of the rack to the rear of the box for support.
