Custom roof rack tips

We're looking at having an aluminium roof rack built for our Landcruiser 100. Does anyone have any tips on what they think worked well for them. We're only looking at 1-2 week trips off-road at this stage. We hope to hear from you soon. Ian and Sue

I have one of those (but none of the fancy and expensive extra bits). Works well for me. Seems strong enough.

Thanks. Could be a good starting point. Someone suggested a guy to us who could build a custom at a fraction of the cost of a new one.

I also have one of the above. I've have had it 4 years now on my 100 series, with all of the handy attachments, jerry can holder, axe, shovel, gas bottle holder and a bunch of handy eye-let attachments.
I've had it pretty loaded up on my last trip from Perth to Broome without any signs of deteriation. The other bonus I have found is that it is very slim line and fits low on the roof, so with the attachments off I can get under a restricted height entry of 2.1 meters without losing the lot (even with the 2inch lift).
And no wind noise when empty.
I bought mine from Opposite Lock .

Hope this helps.
