Default Wind noise on Prinsu? Would LX 570 Thule “feet” work?

New to this forum, I’m working thru this rack issue.
I like the look of the prinsu, please update on wind noise.

im wondering if the flush rails are the same as on the new lx 570—-Thule has a fit kit for that model. Looks pretty much the same as gx rails. Anyone know for certain? I have aero bars off my old truck just need new feet to make them work!

Great info on here, thanks

How do the factory bars attach to the rails?

I have factory bars on order, and have an old full length Sportrack basket that I will likely use from time to time.

This one, more or less

It's very easy to do. The front and back bars are different length so make sure you have them correctly before install.
Just line it up and tighten the torx screws.

Did Prinsu stop making the GX roof rack? I can't find it on their website anymore.

Maybe see if this vendor can still get one?

https://aventuron.com/products/prins...gx460-roofrack

I emailed Prinsu as well to find out if permanently discontinued. Looks like might have gone off website around 11/2.

Vendor above claims they can either obtain or have the Prinsu in-stock.

I don’t notice any noticeable noise from my Prinsu. You guys should all CBI off-road (Prinsu manufacture) to see what’s going on. Would be interested to know why they were pulled from the site.

Your truck looks great. I am really digging the Gamiviti rack and may be leaning in that direction. Also like the KO2's. I have them on my Tundra and love them. Are yours stock size? And by your comment that suspension is next, I assume this picture is stock suspension? Again, nice rig!
