    Unfortunately I’ll have to offload everything after each trip. Either that or raise the garage door. :)

    Do you have a lift/larger tires? Just wanting to compare clearance…3” is close!

    I’m on stock Bilstein TRD Pro’s with Westcott perches/shims in the front and CB +3 shackles in the rear. Tires are 295/70/18’s.

    It’s definitely close and I can leave the truck outside but it’s peace of mind not having to worry about CA low lifes trying to steal cats, mess with the truck, etc. All about minimizing risk.

    This gives me hope this spring when I put one on. I’ve got about 6” of clearance now so I think I have enough room to get one on and still park in the garage if I want to

    Could of any you with a Prinsu rack for a double cab take 2 measurements for me? Length of a cross bar and also the length of the side panel. Would appreciate it. Looking into building my own rack from 80/20 and aluminum stock. Prinsu even sells the wind deflector separately so may just buy that and use it too.

    Prinsu on CrewMax - let the professionals do the work on this one. Will be nice for extra storage, light bar, and anything else I don’t want in the bed.

    Do a lot of snowboarding and mountain biking trips with the fam or friends so fully loaded with 4 people and gear it made sense depending on the situation.

    Also have Retrax cover which takes up a little bed space.

    Just installed it a few days ago, haven't had the occasion to use it yet but love the stoutness and ascetics.

    my 2 cents: pull the headliner for drilling. put sound matting up there while the liner is down anyway.

    Could someone with a prinsu cab rack for a crewmax please measure between the bottom of the cross bars and the top of the roof at the shallowest point? Looking to see if I could fit solar panels under the rack, in between the roof and the rack. Maybe towards the back as I probably won’t block the sunroof. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Pretty sure the cross bars are 54” for both the double cab and crewmax. Just bought two extra for my crewmax from tnutz. They’re cheap but shipping from Canada is brutal.

    honestly, if you can hold off to BF, I’d probably wait and see if cali raised off-road has a big sale and order it through them. I’d be willing to bet they will. CBI usually does too. With the cost of aluminum, your time, and a potential decent discount in Black Friday, it might not be worth it. I’d number crunch this one for sure.
