The K9 Roof Rack Kit by Eezi-Awn is one of the best and most versatile racks in the market. It'll suit your Toyota Land Cruiser Series 100 perfectly, without the need to do any drilling, plus it's compatible to other after market brand accessories such as Thule & Yakima.

SHIPPING:

Due to the size and weight of this item, we will only ship within the continental U.S. using truck freight.

COMMERCIAL FREIGHT & FREIGHT CENTER SHIPPING ONLY:

Please note that free shipping only applies to delivery at a commercial address or your nearest freight center. No residential delivery.

Sizes:

The K9 systems for the Toyota 100 Series Land Cruiser (Lexus LX470) come in 1400mm (55") width, and 5 different lengths.

We have seen that the most popular size is the 2.2M (87") long rack that starts a few inches behind the windshield and finishes an inch in front of the rear hatch.  This rack maximizes your roof top capacity, hence why many costumers prefer it.

The 1.6M (62") version is a great choice if you want to maintain the use of your sunroof. It starts just behind the sunroof and finishes an inch in front of the rear hatch.

Heights:

The 100 Series Land Cruiser utilizes our standard height rack which measures 5" high, from above the second row doors, measured at the pinch weld trim. It uses 65mm tall feet, and allows enough room for options on the bottom of the platform. 

Capacity:

The capacity of the K9 roof rack system is broken into two measurements, static weight and dynamic weight.

Static is when the vehicle is stationary, or not in motion. Dynamic is when the vehicle is in motion.  

On this particular Eezi-Awn roof rack a dynamic capacity in the range of 500 pounds is possible. That load included a Roof Top Tent, an awning, dual fuel can holder, aluminum storage case with recovery gear, shovel, axe, under mount table, light bar, etc on a 2.2M long rack. 

A static capacity of 1000 pounds is possible. An example of static load increase would be adding people in the tent on the roof. Please understand these capacities are on vehicles that have modified suspensions designed to manage this amount of weight. They are not a warrantied or guaranteed capacity. 

No Drilling:

The K9 Roof Rack System for the Toyota Land Cruiser 100 Series requires no drilling at all for any size rack. The proprietary mounting rail mounts right over the roof pinch weld trim and utilizes the OEM roof rack mounting points.

Installation:

Installation of this rack system can be done by one person in approximately 1-1/2 hours.  Help lifting the platform on the roof would be appreciated. Click HERE to Download Instructions.

The components used on the 100 Series Land Cruiser rack systems include a pair of mounting rail, a set of K9 feet (2 per platform cross brace), and a platform.

Step-By-Step Guide On How To Mount A Roof Top Tent:

  1. All tents have a similar installation process, but they might vary a little, that is why we recommend you reading carefully THROUGH EACH PRODUCT MANUAL, as well as watching their videos (most are online, or you can ask us to send them to you).

  1. Tools needed: A Phillips head screwdriver, a box cutter, a second 13 mmm ratcheting wrench, a 10mm ratcheting wrench and a heck saw.

  1. Before mounting them onto a roof rack, flat rack or crossbar, the first step is removing your newly bought RTT from the box, as well as all the bits and pieces included (all RTTs WILL include all the necessary installation parts and a manual).

  1. Take the tent out of the box and place it on a clean surface with the straps faced DOWN. Set aside the mounting racks. Remove the protective plastic from the tent with the box cutter. Undo the straps from the sides of the tent and across the base.


  2. Open the tent, and take from inside of it all the contents. Most brands will include a tent cover, rainfly, ladder, mattress, and a pouch with the hardware, tools and parts.

  1. Most RTTs will include the following tools and hardware (see Image as an example): 2 bungees, 2 ladder brackets, 8 aluminum channel sliders with bolts and nuts, 4 end caps, four steel mounting plates, the needed wrenches, and four medium sized bolts with washers.

    tools included inside roof top tents
  1. Then, time for the action. Grab the mounting tracks of the RTT; place them on the tent base parallel to the hinges, aligning the holes in the tracks with the holes in the base.


  2. Grab the nuts, remove them from the four medium sized bolts and slide them into the mounting channels, as to align them to the holes in the base.


  3. Then take the bolts each with two washers, and slide them between the mattress and the tent base.


  4. Screw them into the pre drilled holes and the nuts you just put in the tracks.


  5. Once the tracks are on, you need turn/flip the tent over to install the ladder.


  6. Grab the Ladder Brackets and unscrew the bolts on each bracket, so that you can position over the pre-drilled holes at the edge of the tent base.


  7. Take the longer bolts each with the washer, and slide them between the mattress and the tent base, into the pre-drilled holes and up through the ladder bracket.

  1. Attach each one with a nut and leave them loose.

  1. Then grab the ladder and through the holes at the end of it, join it to the by passing the remaining length of the bolt through the holes in the ladder end. Then add another nut and tighten it on both sides.

  1. Then rotate the ladder a few times, before tightening the bolts of the brackets to the base.

  1. Then secure the ladder with the straps (most tents should have them), and then reattach the side straps of the tent to secure it. 

  1. Once all the parts have been installed, make sure you put the travel cover on top of the tent. It is a very easy process that barely needs explanation; just make sure you close the zippers carefully to prevent the tent fabric catching to the zipper.

  1. Time to place the tent on top of the vehicle. Since they weigh over 120 lbs, you will want the help of someone to do it. 

  1. Mounting the tent mounting tracks depends on whether you have side rails or cross bars, and if you want the tent to open towards the side of the car or towards the back. In this step-by-step guide we will use a side mounting as an example on top of cross bars.

  1. Place the mounting racks in the base of the tent, PERPENDICULAR to your roof rack bars.

  1. Then, fit two aluminum channel sliders and bolts into each end of the mounting track, so that there is a bolt on either side of the roof rack bar. Repeat this process at each of the 4 points where the racks and mounting racks cross.

  1. Once this is done, fit a steel mounting plate on the bolts and under the roof rack bar, and secure them with nuts and tighten them with a wrench.

  1. Insert the rubber end caps into the end of the mounting tracks to avoid water or other materials going in there. You might need to hammer them in, but don’t be too aggressive.

  1. It is INSTALLED!

How To Open The Roof Top Tent:

  1. Now, to open it, release the side straps, pull back the ladder until it locks out and use it as leverage to open the tent.

 

  1. Make sure all rungs of the ladder are locked into the edge.

 

  1. Before getting into the tent, make sure the hinges are properly engaged.

 

  1. Then unclasp the awnings and find the predrilled holes for the rainfly rods.

 

  1. Insert at a 45-degree angle and hook through the grommet.

 

  1. You are READY!
