    Prinsu Roof Rack 4Runner

    Prinsu Roof Rack 4Runner

    First on the list is the 4Runner Prinsu roof rack. Now each of the generations of the 4Runner has a specific Prinsu rack that fits them and that includes the 3rd, 4th, and 5th gen 4Runner. Now, these roof rack kits are virtually the same except they have slight differences depending on the car model. However, we will talk about the rack itself as it has the same great features to offer.

    This is in our humble opinion the best roof rack you can get for your 4Runner. It is lightweight, affordable, durable, and low profile, and it DOES NOT require drilling in order to install it. It is of high quality, built to last aluminum construction which is additionally black powder coated to prevent any scratches, and even erosion when driving around in muddy environments.

    It is also a modular roof rack system meaning that you can adjust the number of crossbars you want to have on it. They are pretty easy to install and take off if you don’t need some of them, however, keep in mind that the more crossbars you have the bigger the weight load rating your rack will have. All the crossbars are constructed out of black anodized aluminum except for one that is not anodized.

    They come with built-in drop-in points that allow for easier mounting of your cargo and it even offers numerous tie-down options that increase the security and stability of said cargo or some accessories. This Prinsu roof rack has a height of something more than 2” making it one of the lowest profile roof rack systems on the market right now.

    Apart from the low height, it also comes with an aluminum wind deflector that increases the aerodynamics of your vehicle and reduces wind drag as well as the noise when driving. This is also a strong rack kit that can withstand more than 500lbs of weight capacity which is more than enough to carry something like kayaks, bikes, additional luggage or cargo, and even mount a roof top tent.

    This no drill roof rack will certainly be a great addition for your next overlanding adventure so be sure to check it out!

    Prinsu 3/4 Roof Rack 4Runner

    This is yet another Prinsu roof rack for 4Runner except this one is shorter than the previously mentioned one. This is a ¾ roof rack and while it offers less space to load up your gear it does allow you to fully open your sunroof and does not block the sun at all, unlike the full-length 4Runner roof rack kits. It sits behind the sunroof opening and it extends all the way to the back of your 4Runner roof.

    It is less expensive than the full-length one but it still comes with the same features. It doesn't need to be drilled in order to be installed and is lightweight, inexpensive, and robust. It is made of durable, high-quality aluminum that is also black powder coated to avoid scratches and even erosion when driving through muddy terrain.

    In addition to its low height, it also has an aluminum wind deflector that improves your car's aerodynamics and lessens wind drag and road noise. Also, this rack system is sturdy and can support more than 600 lbs of weight, which is more than enough to transport items like kayaks, bikes, extra luggage or goods, and even mount a roof top tent.

    Also, because it is a modular roof rack system, you may choose how many crossbars you wish to have on it. The more crossbars you have, the higher the weight load rating your rack will have. They are rather simple to install and remove if you don't require some of them. With the exception of one, all of the crossbars are made of black anodized aluminum.

    This Prinsu roof rack is also a bit lighter than the full-length one and that is because it uses less material to make. That means that it will put less additional weight on your off-road rig. This is another great 4Runner roof rack kit so feel free to check it out!

    Prinsu Roof Rack Tacoma

    Now let’s take a look at yet another variation of the Prinsu roof rack. This is a roof rack that has been designed to fit the Toyota Tacoma models from 2005 up to the present.

If you don't need some of them, installing and removing them is rather easy. The crossbars are all constructed of black anodized aluminum, except for one crossbar.

    Prinsu Tundra Rack

    prinsu tundra cab rack

    The Toyota Tundra is the Tacoma’s older brother, a stronger, bigger and more powerful truck. That requires a strong, powerful rack to match this truck’s energy. Fortunately, the Prinsu cab rack for the Tundra Crewmax from 2022 onwards matches that energy. Made in USA from heavy duty aluminum it has a 1000 lbs load rating, just enough to carry over it anything you can imagine and you will ever need.

    It's modular, which means you can add or remove slats (crossbars) at your convenience. On top of that, each slat has multiple drop points on all 4 faces of the slat for a better user experience and mounting capabilities. You can literally tie straps or mount gear by attaching it to any of the t-slot channels on all four faces of the slat. As easy as it gets.

    What about installing this Tundra rack? Well, due to the nature of the Tundra’s roof, you will be required to drill to install it. This means that installation will take slightly longer than usual, and will require you to use power tools. However, the included instruction manual is thorough and easy to understand, and you shouldn’t have much trouble installing it.

    The upside of this is that hence to the drilling, the rack will be much sturdier and even safer as it will sit tight over your cab. Oh, even if you have a panoramic roof, it works just fine. And if you choose to remove a few slats right above the sunroof, well, you can have a full view of the clear blue sky as you drive.

    Prinsu Roof Rack Outback

    prinsu roof rack outback

    Prinsu makes roof racks for the Subaru Outback ranging from the 4th to the 6th Gen, so you should be able to pick the one you need. Now let’s take a look at what they all offer: these platform racks are made of eight powder coated black aluminum 1” x 2” crossbars, which are 44” wide and are bolted onto extruded aluminum side rails with stainless steel bolts and hardware. Needless to say, the rack has a Limited Lifetime Warranty. 

    As to what makes this Outback roof rack special, well it so happens that each crossbar has t-slot channels on all 4 sides, making it extremely easy for you to tie straps or gear to them. On top of that, given the modular nature of Prinsu racks, you can easily remove or add slats from the side plates for your convenience. With more slats, the weight capacity increases, with less slats it’s reduced. As to the sunroof, well that’s optional. If you remove the slats right above it, you can fully open it, with the slats over it, you won’t be able to.

    What about the dimensions? Well, the roof rack has a length of 80.25”, adds a total height of 2.18” to the roof of your Outback, keeping it as low profile as you can. As to the weight capacity, we mentioned it’s 1000 lbs, which is enough for any roof top tent, but make sure the tent you carry fits over the rack. Finally, remember you can choose the wind deflector to have a cutout for an LED light bar.

    Prinsu Roof Rack Crosstrek

    Prinsu Roof Rack Subaru Crosstrek

    This is the last Prinsu rack on our list and it was made to fit the Subaru Crosstrek models from 2018 up to the current one. Since Subaru is a smaller vehicle than the previously mentioned one the rack is also shorter to fit the roof. That means it is also cheaper than the rest of the Prinsu roof rack models mentioned.

    It does, however, offer the same features. It is constructed using the same components as all previous Prinsu roof racks, making it lightweight, inexpensive, and—most importantly—durable. Installation doesn't require any drilling or other changes. It also includes a black powder coat finish to increase robustness and durability, especially when driving on off-road terrain.

    The roof rack system is modular, allowing you to choose the number of crossbars you want or need. Your rack's capacity to support a certain amount of weight rises as the number of crossbars it has. Installing and removing some of them is simple if you decide you don't want them. Apart from one crossbar, all of the crossbars are made of black anodized metal.

    It is a low-profile roof rack that also has an aluminum wind deflector to improve your car's aerodynamics, lessen wind drag, and reduces noise when driving. This is a very sturdy and strong roof rack that allows you to mount almost anything you wish thanks to the 600lbs weight load rating. That means that you can mount kayaks, bikes, extra luggage or camping gear, various accessories, and even a roof top tent.

    Prinsu Design Studio FAQs 

    What is the Prinsu roof rack weight limit?

    Prinsu roof racks have a static weight capacity of over 1000 lbs and a dynamic weight limit of around 300 lbs.

     

    How tall is a Prinsu roof rack?

    Prinsu roof racks are one of the lowest profile roof racks on the market right now and they are only a bit more than 2” tall.

     

    Where are Prinsu racks made?

    They are 100% USA-made in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

     

    How to install a Prinsu roof rack?

    Installing a Prinsu roof rack is very simple as it does not require any drilling or modification to your vehicle. They only need to be assembled and tightened using bolts onto the roof of your car. Each Prinsu roof rack comes with installation instructions as well as the necessary hardware.

     

    Does a Prinsu roof rack work with a sunroof?

    Yes, it does. Even if you have all the crossbars mounted onto your Prinsu roof rack you will still be able to open and use your sunroof. However, those crossbars may block some of the sunlight. If you don’t want that to happen, you can simply remove some of the crossbars and that should fix it.

     

    Are CBI Prinsu the same thing? 

    No they are not the same thing. Although, CBI and Prinsu are both owned by the same group, they are different and separate brands, which make different products. Prinsu focuses on roof racks as well as rack accessories. CBI manufactures bed racks, bumpers and skid plates. Does one exclude the other? Not at all. A Prinsu roof rack can be paired just fine with a CBI bed rack.

     

    What is better: Prinsu vs Frontrunner?

    This is a very personal choice. Prinsu roof racks are slightly different to Front Runner roof racks. Prinsu roof racks are made in USA, have a lower profile and are made fully of aluminum (except for the hardware). Front Runner racks are made in South Africa, can be either higher profiled (with tie down options even under the rack), or lower profiled, and are made with some stainless-steel components, therefore slightly heavier. Which one is better is hard to decide, so we leave that up to you and your vehicle’s needs.

     

    Prinsu vs Sherpa 

    Both have an extremely similar design, both are made in USA, and both are excellent companies. The main difference comes down to a few things: Prinsu roof racks have a more affordable price point, but Sherpa roof racks have a thicker aluminum side plate. 

    Both are perfect for overlanding, but the choice in the material thickness comes down to your own personal preference.
