I'm looking at purchasing a set of racks for my 4runner. Has anyone used the track mount systems where an alloy track is mounted on the roof, specifically the rhino ones, what are the pros and cons of this style? Similarly has anyone used the ones that mount on the internal rain gutters above the doors?

I had a Rhino track mount 3 bar system on my 4 runner which with a basket on it gave me no problems, very solid & looked good with aerodynamic cross bars. I first tried the in-door gutter mount bars which were terrible, they rubbed on the door, didn't allow the door to shut and seal properly and therefore were not waterproof.........
Definately go for the Rhino track mount...

yeah agree with the others track mount is the only way to go. I have a 4runner and have the track mount on and it's brilliant! Easy to adjust the length of the rack which is good for carrying different items, haven't got a basket and looking to get an alloy luggage tray up there in the future.

hope this helps.
Cheers,
