Nice product. Installed on a camper shell for a Chevy 2500. I like the looks of this product. Assembly was ok. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it came with 3 different sets of instructions and they weren’t written very well. Just be careful on the part where it tells to to map out the holes to be drilled. Look at how many T-bolts you have and space accordingly. Other than that I am very happy. 663344

The main challenge is all measurements are in metric. COOL product, it takes some thinking and blue masking tape to make things go smooth. Awesome canoe rack! 132871

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


Fit is good, sturdy rack, video instructions are great and easy to put on. Locks are not that great but will work for me. If someone really wanted to get to the bolt they could easily break the lock covers but then they would have to have the correct wrench. I would still recommend this as a great after market rack. 588056

These Rhino Rack low profile aero cross bars gave us the look that we were going for. Wind noise is minimal if noticeable at all. The Rhino Rack roof rack fit on top of the cross bars perfectly. Great product. 553488

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


These things are strong and quiet! I have them mounted on my Land Rover Discovery Sport using the SRB legs by Rhino Rack. I've had furniture, lumber, ladders, tools, canoe, and a roof rack piled up there at some point or another and I don't have to worry about them slipping at all!!!! I've done this so much that the rubber strips are showing some wear and have frayed a bit where they've pinched the aluminum, but it's still rock solid. That's my only grip. Hopefully the replacement strips are affordable when I replace them in a year or two. I'd buy another Rhino Rack product in a heartbeat. They look great on my car and are strong and quiet on the road. I feel I made the right choice. 604273


Comments
These bars are hanging in there and holding on strong! My Discovery Sport is in the elements 99.9 of the time and the paint on these crossbars is not faded and there is no rust. The rubber seems to be holding up in the hot Louisiana sun. Ive pinched the very grippy rubber strips with heavy loads, so that is showing some wear, but otherwise its rock solid. The plastic endcaps dont feel brittle and theyre still quiet and strong. Thank yall for a great product for this vehicle!

So far so good. The Aero 2500 racks went on in a couple of hours as I was not in a rush, wanted to do it properly and understand all I needed to to remove and reinstall these in the future. I did manage to get the Rhinorack logo facing backward on the front and forward on the back. Sorry, didn’t intend to but I’m not going to reverse them at this point. I did not take pics of these on my 2017 Prius. But they look good, less clunky than my old square Thule racks. 512463

Great roof rails. They sit relatively low to the roof; which combined with the Aero profile give a great look. 226575

My Rhino-Rack Aero 2500 roof racks fit solidly on my 2007 Honda Civic EX. I was really impressed with the construction and strength of the rack system. Also the versatility of the 'legs' with a swivel pad allow them to fit any roof pitch perfectly. The clamps are so solid, nothing could knock these racks off. I added a paddleboard attachment and went surfing today. The black racks also look great with the black trim on my silver Honda. Great product at a much better price than Yakima or Thule. 395557

After finally obtaining the correct roof rack for a 2012 Chevy Impala, installation was fairly easy, and the finished installation appears very secure. We did do a test run with a kayak attached, which was both stable and quiet (3 photos attached showing final installation before test run). 388669

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


This roof rack is very solid and well-made. It was reassuring when I looked up my car online and saw a video of it being installed on that very car. The instruction manual is a little hard to follow and could be simplified, in my opinion. That said, the instructions and recommended measurements seem to be spot on. 705223

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


I bought the roof rack to carry kayaks back and forth from Pennsylvania to Florida. The rack is solid and performs that task very well. My plan was to take the rack off and on but I decided to just leave it on. I do notice some wind noise since I've added the rack but it does not distract me and I would say that it is not excessive but it is noticeable. I did have problems during the installation. I mounted the racks on a Ford 250 super duty. And the instructions were very clear as to where the feet that's support the rack where to be installed. Plastic strips are cut and the feet that support the rack on the roof push up to the cut plastic strips and that is what determines placement. I read the instructions several times and had seen an installation on another truck owned by a friend of mine. When I pushed the feet to the proper position I could not attached the clamps from the rack feet to the rain gutter on the truck which holds the whole assembly on the roof. They were too short. I spoke to Etrailer and a consensus was that I had cut the strips correctly. Etrailer's input of course was over the phone and they could not actually see or measure anything that I did. Nevertheless, in order to install the rack I had to move the feet on each side a bit closer to the rain gutter on the truck. I did not think that this would make any difference and based on the performance I have not noticed any problems. I would have given this product and excellent rating if I did not have to deal with the little problem that I had with the fit. As I said I have not taken it off the roof and I reach up and check it now and then and it's as solid as the day I put it on. 706965

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


Excellent price and quick shipping. Excellent support for missing bar end cap. Rack was easy to put together and install and video was helpful. My only complaint is when trying to tie down kayak to cradle it is not easy to keep the loop over the top of the upright "U" shaped bar, it keeps siding down. We wrapped two pieces of foam around the bar to create a channel to hold the strap now it is easy. 557941

Review from a similar Vortex Aero in Ladder Racks


The racks fit perfectly! They are a great fit to my car. They don’t interfere with the sunroof’s operation. I assembled it on my own with no difficulty. It was easy to assemble. The directions it provides to you are easy to follow. The only down side was getting the plastic pieces to lock on the ends of the bars. Other than that they are great and they look great on my car! I plan to use them to transport kayaks! They are very sturdy and very trust worthy for transporting a couple of kayaks. I recommend these racks to anyone who has a 2016 or 2017 Nissan Altima! 487588

I bought this roof rack for my kayak. Previously, I was just using ratchet straps through the car. I finally got fed up because when it would rain the water would drain in through the straps into the car. I looked a long time and did a lot of research. The Rhino is definitely the best bang for your buck. Super rigid, easy to install, simplifies travel, and looks great. Etrailer, even with the 4th of July, sent the rack quickly. The direction specific for my Honda Cr-V was also very comprehension. Thank you! 539768

I'm absolutely in love with Katie, my sales consultant for her great help & excellent follow up. Fully expecting cheap Chinese junk. I was delighted with the quality of the product, (Rhino Rack) which was received day after New Years. Pretty cool when order was placed Dec 29th. Simple illustrated instructions made pre assembly a snap. Wind chill is 2 below zero so I'm going to wait a day or so to mount to car. Two thumbs up from me! 331614

I have included a link to all of the track mount systems listed for your 2001 Tundra. The systems listed come with tracks and there are several different lengths. There are both aero bar track systems and heavy duty rectangle bar systems available in the list. The difference is pretty much the bars themselves....
