Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


The RINO RACK AND PIONEER PLATFORM are a great addition to my little Wrangler. etrailer folks were very helpful in determining exactly what I wanted and needed. The assembly instructions are very good - even though there are a lot of parts to assemble. I was able to complete the assembly by myself (with help getting the top off the jeep.) If I can offer a recommendation from my experience, I would pre-assemble the entire unit with the mounting brackets finger-tightened to the platform AND THEN set it on the roof - to insure that the holes needed to be drilled are in exactly the right spot. I had to re-drill two holes and maybe that was my own fault, but until I did, i could not get the platform to rest in the mounting brackets. All that said, I am VERY PLEASED with the RINO RACK product. It is very secure, easily accessible, very low profile (3" from roof to top of rack), large platform that still allows removal of the Freedom Top on my rig. It will give me the extra carrying capacity as we tow the jeep behind the motor home from Arizona to Alaska and hit lots of back country for tent camping in the process!! 614433

Iwe continue to enjoy and appreciate the platform- AND i have addedthe rails, which have really helped with securing a load!!

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


I bought this roof rack to mount on my 2018 Toyota TRD Off Road 4Runner. The reason I purchased it was because of the versatility that this product offers. There are many roof racks out there for my vehicle. Some are cheap and some are expensive. Some racks are smaller and some are full size. I was looking for a rack that wouldn't break the bank as well as cover a majority of the roof (without drilling). I have two young kids and I'd like to get them out more. Hence, buying the 4Runner as well as the rack. This rack will enable me to load a ton of stuff on it in the future such a roof top tent, awning, etc. Even though I'm somewhat handy, the installation did take around 3-4 hours. I did have one other person helping me. I highly recommend having an additional set of hands helping during the installation. The sides rail installation was easier than I thought it would be. The platform itself took longer to install. Overall: very happy with this product. I highly recommend it. 719282

Fantastic experience! I spent weeks researching rack options for my GX460. At the end of my rope with literally NO good options, the good folks at etrailer talked me thru some great ideas and I went with the RhinoRack Universal Platform, attached to Yakima RailGrab Towers. My etrailer order was delivered within 48hrs and installed within another 12hrs. Great fit, great look. No rattles and surprisingly, no wind noise. I’ll be back for accessories! GREAT experience. 706244

This rack is super solid. Took about an hour to put it together and another hour to mount it on my truck. Clear instructions and very easy to install yourself with even a basic skill set. Etrailer got it to me in 3 days for free! Can’t say enough about the service and the prices from etrailer. 599244

Awesome rack! Solid functionality and sharp looking on my 4Runner. Only downside is lots of parts and pieces/screws/bolts/washers to manage to put together...worth it in the end, however. Price and service from etrailer also could not be beat, and I did my research! Thank you all around. 593032

First of all congratulations to E-Trailer on the shipping. I ordered my pioneer platform and the full rail kit at the same time. The rail kit was not in stock and had to be shipped from the manufacturer. Worried that the shipment might not make it time for my upcoming desert trip, I called etrailer and voiced my concerns. Long story short, I was given a ship date that wouldn’t have given me much time for the install and I ended up getting it four days earlier. Super easy to install and very strong. I’ll have to give a follow up review after I put it work in the coming weeks. 616480

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


I installed this on a '99 Lexus LX470 (Toyota Land Cruiser 100 series). I have had 0 issues with this rack and the options are seemingly endless. Here is what I've had mounted to this rack: 1- Black Oak LED 40" light bar using Rhino Rack brackets 2- Max Trax recovery treads 3- Jerry Can 4- Mountain bike - had to spend 100 on correct rail/fork mount, but it works flawlessly 5- Oz Tent Foxwing awning - used Rhino Rack Foxwing brackets 6- Shovel / Hi-lift jack dual brackets - only had shovel mounted 7- Tepui Roof Top Tent - Kukenam Ruggedized - used Eezi Awn K9 brackets and made it super easy to mount. My ONLY complaint is that for a rack this expensive (all racks are expensive) I wish they would rivet a metal "RHINO RACK" logo to the product. The decals start peeling after a short time and makes a really great quality rack look cheap. I will also add this note: Add-ons and all the extras get really expensive. It's like stepping into vacuum for your money. Once you get over the initial investment, you've only just begun. Now, you've got to mount things to it and that's where you really have to PLAN IT OUT AHEAD OF TIME. You need to have a game plan of what you want to do with it, otherwise you will have a boat load of bolts/brackets/clamps etc. that you end up not using. There are usually more than one way of getting something attached. So, ask yourself if you really need that 100.00 bracket or if a ratchet strap will do the same thing. Also, don't get overcome by the "coolness" factor. Do you REALLY need that Hi-lift jack, or do you just want to keep up with all the Jeepsters out there. If you take that approach, you'll be ahead of the game. I deducted one star for the decals and for all the accessories being so overly expensive....but they DO WORK REALLY WELL. This is not a mark on Etrailer. Etrailer is AAA+ Their customer service is top notch and have always provided me with great communication and service. 519915

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


Rhino rack pioneer platform JA8200 for Land Cruiser 80 Series. Awesome product, aluminum high build quality, low profile and round edge design that matches well with 80 Series's curvy line. I decided on this rack for #1 functional reason, "fitting into my garage" after my rig's been lift and upsized tires. #2 reason is aesthetics fitting the LC80. ARB was too high on profile, other one piece design was too bulky for shipping. Great product. The only minor issue I had was the 80 Series has a bit curvature (~1/4") on rain gutter, with highest point at the middle area. This requires a bit adjusting/playing with foot positioning and use of shimming. eTrailer customer service was great, with Bryan sent me the missing part once notified. Great place to buy with free shipping. 555298

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


There are so many options for the 4Runner. Going through all the research, choosing one, and being happy with it in the long run are overwhelming to someone like me that just has to be able to see all the angles. We did have a few requirements. It needed to be low profile enough to fit in the garage, it needed to be able to hold a RTT, and not break the bank. In the end, it came down to 3 options. Gobi Rhino Rack Front Runner I ruled out the Front Runner option because I wasn’t comfortable with drilling holes in the roof. Not that it can’t be done and done well. I just wasn’t comfortable doing it myself, nor did I have a local shop that I trusted to install the nutserts. Gobi was next to get eliminated. I love the look and the name speaks for itself with regard to quality. However, the long lead-times and high price tag were turn off’s. Short story long - We chose the #RhinoRack #pioneerplatform. First impressions - It looks great. It is lighter than the ARB we had before. Wind noise isn’t terrible at 70mph+. The textured powder coat seems tough enough. I like the full length. The #4Runner with 3inch lift still fits in the garage without drama. AND it was delivered to my door 3 days after ordering thanks to #etrailer The only negative feedback I can give are the directions. There were a couple head-scratcher moments. 772060

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


I almost never write reviews. However, I will make an exception this time. This is my third order with etrailer.com. The previous two were straight forward. This one was not. I was ordering a roof rack for my 200 series Land Cruiser. There were several concerns I had with it. Emily went to the manufacturer to sort out areas I was concerned about. She called me back within 30 minutes with accurate information. I would not have spent the $1,400 on the rack with out the specifics. It was nice not having to do all the research on my own, and getting significant help was a gift. Much appreciated! Hence the review. 733153

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


Bought the Rhino Rack 60 x 54 platform to mount over the bed of my '20 Jeep Gladiator. Then I will mount a Thule Cargo Box onto platform for additional storage of camping gear. I decided to go Rhino Rack because it really gives you options. I like the antenna mount options for my CB and Ham radio. Top quality materials and finish. Much nicer than I had anticipated. Package came well packed and in good order. But be advised it's pretty heavy. Assembly will look quite daunting at first. I would advise finding an elevated surface that is larger than the platform you purchase. One easy way is to empty your garage and get two 3 x 6 folding tables or 2 sawhorses and a piece of plywood. Put down a light colored cloth or blanket on work surface as not to scratch your platform. Make sure you received the size you ordered prior to opening box. Unpack box and find hardware box. I had a small clear plastic fishing lure organizer in which I put all hardware in. Trust me, there's a lot of hardware. You may then count all hardware against packing list if you wish. Set that hardware aside. Preview instructions as they are fairly clear. Then just lay out all the pieces upside down in the order they go together making sure all parts are accounted for. Then follow the instructions and you should be good to go. Have no hesitations in buying from etrailer. There customer service is fantastic and returns are super easy. 732386

Quality product, and the price on etrailer was good. But it was a bear to put together. This product comes with different kits for various installs and 3 sets of directions. Try juggling that. On top of that, after hours of trying to figure out where to install the risers/supports to fit my vehicle, and making a few calls to Rhino, we figured out that I had to drill holes in the unit to fit my vehicle... although it was supposed to fit according to the website. I'm happy with it now that it is installed, but won't be able to get that day back. 726442

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


I ordered the Rhino Rack Platform Rack with Backbone System for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to enable it to mount a rooftop tent. The rack is expensive at about $1600 all in, but I have no question about this rack’s capabilities and it looks awesome. I prepped myself by watching several different videos, including etrailer’s installation video. Everything went fairly well, but I encountered a couple of minor issues. First, when I bolted the platform extrusions to the end rails from the bottom of the rack, I didn’t pay attention to the topside of the extrusions. After completing this and turning the rack right side up, I found that each screw had forced the ends of each extrusion up slightly so that they were not flush to the end rails. I am debating whether to leave this as is or to remove each screw and add another washer to relieve the pressure it is causing. Second, although I carefully placed the rear and middle brackets in position and was careful with the drilling template for the front bracket, there was still some misalignment that couldn’t be overcome by the small ovals where the legs connect to the platform. I had to expand these ovals by drilling them wider. Eventually I got a good fit. Finally, the quick mount legs required two different keys to remove the platform. This was caused by the quick mount legs coming in the form of two separate kits. One kit contained two legs and one key (no spare) and the other kit had four legs and two keys. The key numbers from these two sets were different. I contacted etrailer, but they had no control over the key set packaging and referred me to Rhino Rack. Rhino Rack was very responsive and sent me new cylinders and keys so that I had locks that were all keyed the same, as well as having a total of four matching keys. We haven’t used the rack yet, but I love the styling and enhancement it gives my Jeep. Just check out my picture... 706070

Excellent product, feels solid and sturdy. Installed on top of Yakima Core bars on a Snugtop camper shell. Plan to use it to store things when I need to sleep in the shell and carry lighter things during travel. Even better customer service. I took my time putting the item together, which was missing some hardware; was super easy to just reply to e-mails sent by etrailer staff and got it resolved to satisfaction without any difficulties. Thanks Dena and Carol C. 599281

Review from a similar Pioneer in Roof Rack


Let me start off by saying I am new to roof racks. I originally had crossbars and Yakima basket. Nothing wrong with tha set up, I just wanted something more low profile. I searched around and came across my current Rhino Pioneer platform. So far I like the way it looks and I like that it is very versitile. There are many add ons you can purchase, which is pretty awesome. I wanted this style rack for not only a low profile look but for the wide space functuality of having the entire roof of my jeep at my disposal. So far, I have strapped my snowboard bag ontop and hauled a few items from the hardware store. I recently purchased the side rails for added security to my luggage. I hope that down the line I will get an opportunity to purchase some add ons and use it's versitility a bit more. While I believe it is a good platform, there are things I personally did not like. 1. Cost, with the towers that mount to the rails on my jeep, this platform was close to $800 on sale. 2. All accessories and or add on are pretty pricey themselves. You can easily spend an additional 1k on buying accessories for this rack. 3. Instructions were very poorly written. The pictures were badly illustrated in my opinion and they did not specify certain parts; which set of towers went in the front and which ones went in the back. 4. I did not like that while my rack was for my vehicle, I still had to drill extra holes so that the spaci g for the mounting towers were correct. Being the rack is universal, I do get it, but still. 5. Wind noise SUCKS! And the faring for this is pretty ugly. Nonetheless the product is well built, versitile and looks great. You do get what you pay for... I hope. etrailer customer service was fantastic as I did call them a few times, Thank you! As of now, for the most part I am happy with this rack. Time will tell if the cost is worth the item. 591802

  • Will the RhinoRack Nautic 580 Side Load Kayak Carrier Mount to a Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform?
    Yes, the Rhino-Rack Nautic 580 # RR580 will mount to a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform like the # RR42111BF , but it won't mount into the channels. Instead you will need the 24" Accessory Bars # RR43232B that run across the platform, since the channels usually run from the front to back of the vehicle. The 24" accessory bars will run only part of the way across the platform to allow you free use of the rest of the rack, but if you wanted to run them all the way across you can get longer accessory...
