roof/bike rack for 1999 4runner? im a beginner


hey guys, i got my 4runner a couple months ago and I need to get a basic bike rack or roof rack (i dont know the difference). The only problem is i literally have no clue what or where to start looking at. I just need to hook up my bike to the roof of my car and get from point A to point B (basic I know). but i was hoping some people here could tell me about some basic and affordable but reliable bike racks? thanks

I would start by looking in the local Craigslist ad for a receiver hitch mounted rack...
getting to the roof of an SUV is a pain (in my opinion).

As far as cheap - well, you get what you pay for...at least stick to Yakima or Thule

And if you do not have a hitch I'll be happy to send you the extra one that I had sold that fell through. It is just sitting in my garage right now.

so does the yakima and thule attach directly into the screws on the top of my 4runner? The top of my 4runner has nothing on it, it has no accessories. i know some 4runners have the black bars going across the roof. do i need to buy those first or something?

I have the 4 bike version of this hitch mount rack.
I can vouch for the sturdiness of this unit. This Hollywood destroys anything from Yakima or Thule for the money.
Aluminum lightweight but beefy construction, tilt away and folding arm design, includes hitch mount lock and 8 foot cable lock with matching keys.
You could wait for the next 20% off sale (seems like every other week) or a free shipping offer (equally as often).

No. There are mounts that can attach to the vehicle without OEM racks (i.e. Yakima Q Towers) They can be rather spendy and you still need to hump the bike up there.
Receiver hitch is way more versatile for the money.

Check out the various rack manufacture websites for specific info.

In a word, yes.

You can buy aftermarket rails (will mount to the roof), risers (mount to the rails), and cross bars (connect the risers) however, you'll be into the rack for about $400 without even being able to mount the bike. From there you'll have to buy the bike rack(s) for as many bikes as you want to mount for ~$100 each.

My advice, depending on how tall you are, would be to get the hitch rack. I have one and it works really well. I personally have the Yakima Double Down, it works well due to the ability to lower it, with bikes attached, and open the rear hatch. My wife, 5' 9", about 130lbs, can load/unload the bikes with ease with this setup.

If you're taller, with some strong shoulders, you can purchase a factory roof rack from a junk yard for less than $100 typically. This will get you the rails, risers, and crossbars. From there you'll need the bike rack(s) for the number of bikes you have again, ~$100 each. My wife CAN NOT load/unload the bikes with this setup. I am 6', about 185lbs, not trying to brag about how freaking strong am I (yeah right =p) but can shoulder press about 225lbs. I can load/unload the bikes with this setup however, it's not the easiest thing. If I am taking more than just my bike, I will not mount them on the roof, unless I am hauling 4+ bikes, or going on a long trip.

For reference, I am talking about a Cannondale F7 MTB (wifes) and a Cannondale Trail SL1 MTB (mine). These are not light bikes. If you're riding a fully carbon road bike or something, shoot, throw it anywhere you please.

While this is true, for a more seamless integration the Q towers are less than ideals.

Get ready to shell out some $$$ for a roof setup, esp since you don't have factory rack. You can always fold a rear seat down and put it inside. That's what I do. $0.

I have roof racks on three of my cars. On the 4Runner, I went with a receiver style Kuat brand rack. I've got Thule roof racks and like the Kuat better for receiver. I'm over 6' tall and still would need a ladder to put a bike on a roof rack.

With a roof rack you have to worry about peeling off the bikes in low clearance drive thrus, especially with a taller SUV. It's easy to forget the bikes are up there. Otoh, it's not too difficult to crunch the bikes when backing up if they are hanging off the back of the truck and you're watching the front bumper as you turn the wheel. Take your pick. :-)

I'm 6'4" and strong. I hate trying to fling my 30ish pound mountain bike onto my Thule roof rack - it's not the weight, it's the leverage. Damned floppy bike is a PITA. Those roof racks are made for cars, not trucks.

My suggestion would be to skip the idea of a roof-mount bike rack completely. If you're cheap and don't mind a little paint scuffing, drop $40 on a trunk mount rack that'll strap to your tailgate. If you want to spend more, a hitchmount bike rack that will drop down or swing aside will run you at least $200 and as much as you want to spend.

We recently bought bicycles and became bike people, so we have to take our bikes to trails in the GX470. We’ve tried a few different methods to move the bikes with the Lexus.

bike

This is my favorite, since the bikes are inside and safe, and it requires no extra parts. We have 2 bikes, so you just take the front wheel off each bike and then put the bike and the wheel inside. You have to push the middle row seats up, and the 3rd row can’t be installed (I sold mine anyways). I’ve seen some people mount a Quick Release Bike Fork or 2 to a 2x4 and place that inside the vechile, so that the bikse can’t move around. With 2 bikes in there, they don’t move much anyways. This method does use all of the interior space of the GX, so no passengers can fit, and it probably won’t work with 3 bikes or more.

Pros: Cheap, Safe, Easy

Cons: Uses all interior space, can only hold 2 bikes

Total cost: $0-40

bike

You can also mount a bike rack to the hitch, if you have one. I also tried this method, and it works when you need to keep stuff in the car. So a swing down bike rack, it will hold 2, 3, 4 bikes. But! The rear tailgate won’t open, since the GX has that swing out door. So the solution is to get a hitch extension. I tried a 12” hitch extension, which didn’t give enough clearance to open the door. Then I got a 18” hitch extension, which barely gives enough room to open, but it does.

So for this method, you actually need to buy a decent amount of stuff to mount it and keep it stable, if you want the rear door to open.

My wife rides a Cruiser style bike, which has very large cross bars. You use those cross bars to attach the bike to the bike rack. I found out about cross bar adaptors, for cruisers and similar bikes. It helps them sit on bike racks easier.

Even with all this hardware and stability, I didn’t love driving around with the bikes hanging off the back, but I never had an incident.

Pros: Keep interior empty

Cons: Bikes are outside, bikes move around on the rack

Total Cost: $100-150

bikebikebikebike

bike

This is the most recommended solution from GXOR, the 1UP Swing Out Bike Rack. This is a bottom tray bike holder that swings out, so you can still open the rear door. This was never a real possibility for us, due to the cost, but it looks like a great solution if you move your bikes often and need the interior available.

Pros: Keep interior empty, bikes are very stable

Cons: Money

Total Cost: $500+

You can mount them on top of your GX using the roof rails, but your vehicle will be so tall then. I don’t think I’d recommend this, and I haven’t seen anyone use this option.

bike

You could do what a GXOR member did and mount all the bikes

I sat down on the toilet and spread my legs wider so that I could see better. A powerful hissing stream hit me, one of the guys came up to me and ordered me to open my mouth. I opened my mouth, stuck out my tongue, and he finished on me, it turned on the others so much that they decided to follow his example. I sat on the toilet and jerked my pussy, droplets of sperm flowed down my chin and chest, which I did not have time.
