My Victory 4X4 Build

I just wanted to share some photos of my Victory 4x4 install. I really like their designs, and decided to stick with them for my major upgrades and make it a 'Victory Bulid'.

I'm usually traveling solo, or with one other person, so my approach is to do just a few key upgrades, carry my gear inside the truck, and keep my truck as simple and lightweight as possible. That means no add-on front or rear bumpers, roof racks, or skid plates. Definitely no RTTs, showers or awnings either. I prefer to drive more slowly and carefully, than to race across the desert tearing it up.

I went with their Blitz sliders (from the Jan. sale), the roof crossbars (4), and a Molle panel. I like the Molle panel so much, I've ordered a second one. The lights were wired to a dedicated switch in the center console.

The roof racks have four carabiner anchor points, four cargo loops, and two spots for my off-road whips (and a go-pro mount up front) On the roof, I plan to add a hi-lift bracket, and rotopack mounts for gas, as well as carry my rescue tracks. (My tires are standard size, so the spare is underneath.) The largest thing I plan to carry is a Kayak, but I'd like to be able to have a platform on top for stargazing too.

(FWIW, the lift is Bilsteins all-around, 1.75" up front, 1" Toytec rear spacer and a diff drop. Tires are standard size General Grabber AT/X - love 'em!)

Looking good. I wish the roof rails had a bit more clearance. If they flex at all, it would be very bad. Perhaps they are incredibly rigid and wont flex, but with two 60 lbs kayaks or RTT, I would be a little concerned. Can you confirm if that is an issue?

We were able to make them extremely low profile because of their strength. I ran a Free Spirit Recreation RTT with 3 of the crossbars (close to 300 lbs with myself and the tent/gear) with no issues. I would recommend 3-4 crossbars depending on the size of tent you plan on using.

Looks great, thanks for the post! Looking forward to seeing more photos!

The crossbars are made of steel and are very rigid. There is absolutely no flex, so I'm not worried at all about the crossbars bending (the OEM rails might be a different story). I owned an 75 lb. Hobie fishing kayak, and I wouldn't hesitate to put two on the roof if I had to.

Edit: I should probably add that I'm super happy with the results! (I left that part out!)

I really like the sliders..On the roof rack, can you buy those anchor points separately?? I've got a different brand but those look like they would work.

I just bought the climbing anchors and other mounting points on Amazon. The bars have a lot of places to mount things.

It hasn't changed a bit. I just replaced the crossbars tho. I expect to have some wind noise when I start to load it up with gear; but I bought these to keep wind resistance and weight down, and to avoid the need for carrying around a much larger roof rack.

Today I added skateboard grip tape to my Blitz sliders. I like it!

Hopefully the OP sees this or someone has done similar.

I had the diff drop done when doing my lift. Now I am interested in the Victory Skids. Will I need a spacer just in the back. if so, what size spacer did you use? Thanks in advance.
