    A pleasant day to all.

    Need your kind advise and support.

    Do you know what would be a good brand for a Roof/Cargo Rack?

    im thinking of putting one on my 2019 Tundra CrewMax.

    i will truly appreciate if you can help and also provide pics and links.

    Thank you in advance.

    Function before sparkle.
    If you want to put it on the cab, you first need to decide if you are willing to drill. Unlike the Tacoma, Tundras do not have factory mounting points on the roof. To put on a full rack, you need to drill holes.

    If you’re willing to drill, look at Prinsu or FrontRunner. Here is what is involved:



    If you’re not, start with a Yakima or Thule base rack.

    Check out Uptop Overland, they make Tundra specific units that can match up with Bed Racks and Toppers.

    I appreciate all the inputs.. I was planning to put it on the cab.. not the bed.. and if there is anyway I can AVOID drilling holes.. I will.

    Again thank you in advance if you have more pics/links/recommendations.

    I am very grateful.

    I just put an AlphaEX on my Leer topper, a word of advise, be prepared to need to space up the rack to clear the roof. The Leer has a slight dome so the cross rails were laying on the roof, had to space up the front a 1/2 inch and the rear 1/4 inch to get them to clear. I used some 1/4 x 1 inch flat strap I had and placed between the roof tracks and the AlphaEX foot, the enclosed extra long button head bolts were used for fitment.

    Don't really need pictures, lay a straight edge across both tracks and see if it lays on the roof, if its not laying on the roof, you should be okay, the rack foot and spacers will raise the crossbars up about 3/4 inches off the tracks. Not near my truck until mid-week.
