I spent about $35 before shipping. I bought 2 of derlin in case I mess up and I might use the leftover for something else.

Well, I tried to fab up something similar to what Crob42 fabbed up, and well, it didn't go so well. Most likely it's the drill bit I have (it's a HQ Norseman) because it bites too hard, but the derlin blew apart on me.

So, plan B. I did also buy the silicone washers for this very case, and this is what I did, from bottom to top.

Butyl around the white plastic
Silicone washer
Prinsu spacer

On the bolt, I slipped on the supplied fender washer, then a 1/8 buna o-ring (-203), this should seal up the void between the bolt head and the spacer so water doesn't enter and pool in the spacer.

Edit: I applied red loc-tite to the bolt.

Cranked it down, finished my beer, now hope for the best.

I may get spacers fabbed in the spring.

Bummer, but not surprising. I had to use 4 bits of increasing size, good clamps, and a very slow drill press feed to get it to work. Kinda was a science project. Worked, but your plan B prob is just as good.

The TRD pro basket uses the same factory holes as the standard roof rails.

All racks you will need to seal the factory mounting locations.

Victory 4x4 is a full-length rack and no-drill option for the front where the footpads sit in the rain channel. seen it in person, very nice fitment
I can say the Victory 4X4 Full rack is top quality. I am very happy with my purchase. Got a first responder discount. Bought the optional black nuts and bolts.
