Default Wind noise on Prinsu? Would LX 570 Thule ďfeetĒ work?

New to this forum, Iím 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 570ó-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

Here are the installation instructions. They show how they attach.

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 donít notice any noticeable noise from my Prinsu. You guys should all CBI off-road (Prinsu manufacture) to see whatís 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!

Default Prinsu roof racks

I love the way the Prinsu roof racks fit the GX. I was looking on purchasing the same racks but the only photo posted on the Prinsu website is the roof racks on a 2013 body style and older. I contacted Prinsu and they are not sure if it will fit the 2014 body style. Did you have to do any customization to fit the roof rack or did you just purchase the one in the site?

The 2010-2019 roofs are all the same. I have the GX460 Prinsu on my 2019 and I love it.

Nice!! Super glad to hear that. Did you have to drill into your roof? Or, did the factory roof rack mounting holes line up? Sorry for all the questions. I just wanted to go with racks that donít need drilling. I read some other people say that they had to do some customization on theirs.
