TRD PRO Basket Mods

These straps look promising. I can store multiple items under this.

The rack comes off fairly easily but, from new, the mounting bolts are very tight with lots of loctite. Just be careful to break one bolt loose then move on to the other before spinning it all of the way out.

For the front foot, I machined a plastic plug that fits tightly into the hole and is held in place from underneath.

For the rear tube, I used a piece of 1 3/4” aluminum tube cut to the same length as the plastic piece it is replacing. I then machined two inserts that were the same diameter as the inside of the stock tubing. Fit them into the tube leaving about an 1 1/2” protruding. I then fit it to the stock rails, drilled through the existing holes. Tapped the inserts and threaded in a new fastener.

For the holes that remained in the top of the rails, I found some grommet plugs and pressed them in.

Hope this answers most of your questions.

Good luck,
Tom

Nice job Tom! You should put some kits together and start selling them.

Agree... The new TRD pro racks are a step backwards! Check out GOBI, pricey but worth it IMO.

I just made sure to seal every layer as best as I could during installation and periodically check them by lifting back the headliner with a pry tool and inspecting for moisture. There's so many wires in those locations as well as curtain airbag components so one can never be to safe I suppose. I haven't had a single issue with leakage, thankfully, even after some broad seasonal and locational changes.
Here is the thread with the rust damage. It's what took me from not worried to paranoid.

(I live in Seattle so the truck is in the rain ~4 months straight every winter.)

I know this is an older thread but is anyone running with the BAJA TRD pro OEM drop in basket? Opinions on that basket?

Agreed. I’ve looked at so many options and the Gobi rack seems to be the best looking and the most versatile. Will probably be awhile before I’m able to pull the trigger but that is on my list for sure.
