At Rocky Road we've designed the first truly trail rated spare tire rack designed specifically for your Toyota 100 Series Landcruiser. Because let's face, while your Landcruiser is a luxury vehicle built very heavy duty, the crossbars on your vehicle are flimsy. Would you trust standing on one to hold you up? Of course not! Because they're light duty plastic and aluminum, and suffer a very low cargo weight limit.
100 Series with the basic rack system, no accessories mounted.

The incredibly strong Rocky Road Advnture rack mounts to your factory rails easily. All bolton, no cutting, drilling, or other modification needed. Mounts tight and secure for the most rugged on and offroad use. Perfect for the ultimate world safari expedition, or for just traveling around town while carrying your oversized spare tire.
On the topic of the spare tire, some many this will not be an issue, for some it will. You cann't go much larger on your spare tire before it won't fit in the pocket under your Landcruiser anymore. So you are left with no options but a rear bumper mounted tire carrier (limits visibility), or moving it to the roof. Additionally, what's up with having the tire down there anyway? On the trail it can hang up on rocks or other trail hazards. Plus, if you had a day like we had Fall 2008 deep in the backcountry of Southern Utah in our company Toyota.... we lost a front tire on the trail and when we went to mount the spare, it had a leak from dragging over some sharp object earlier in the trail. Fortunately, we were equipped with pump and tire plugs to get ourselves home. Point being... its a bad idea to have the spare tire be a skidplate under your Toyota.
We have to start off with the primary reason for developing this rack system... the spare tire mount. Our kit uses a cool prerunner style mount with an easy to use T-handle for tightening and securing.
You can pack along extra items such as an axe, shovel, axe and shovel, or anything else with a similar handle using our accessory mount.
The HiLift jack mount gives you a nice secure place to store this essential offroad tool. We use an official HiLift jack mount kit which allows you to lock your jack into place if you wish. Holds jacks up to 60" if you wish.
Our forward light mount gives you a great place to mount auxiliary offroad lights such as the IPF kit shown in our pictures. Our mount puts them up high to get rid of that hood glare you often get from lower mounted overhead lights. Our light bars come with 3 or 4 light positions. You can use the center mount for other items such as a CB antenna, or as a satellite radio receiver button as shown in the picture at right. Can also be mounted on the rear of the rack as well.
Fuel or water carriers are a great item to have along for a weekend adventure, or your dream road trip. Our racks allow an assortment of fuel or water cans to be used which can be purchased from many auto parts stores, outdoor stores, or direct from Rocky Road. The single can carrier kit holds 2 containers.
Our rack system is built around a super sturdy 1.25" tube frame. All components easily bolt into place. Anyone in possession of a wrench can mount this kit up. All components come in a very durable black powdercoat finish and look excellent next to the factory roof rails. The whole system is UPSable to anywhere in the world.

Please note. These racks are built-to-order. Please allow a week or two for the kit to be built and then shipped.
Please note. It has come to our attention that some 100 Series have a narrower factory roof rail system and might require trimming approximately 1" of material from the mounting legs of our rack. This modification will not affect the warranty or functionality of the rack.
Please note. The rack will not fit on the LX470 because the factory roof rails are too short.
