Q Cristina • 10/02/2021, 2:28:23 PM Is it more difficult to install the Molle panels after the shelf has been installed? If I might get the Molle panels, is it best to install them first then the shelf? I can only afford one at a time and would prefer the shelf first.
A 10/05/2021, 5:33:34 PM It's not to bad to install either way. You can quickly pull the shelf to get more room to install the side window panels if need be.

Q Cooke Jr. William • 01/30/2022, 12:20:48 PM 5th gen 4Runner will universal upper shelf work since back seat recline
A 01/31/2022, 1:11:19 PM With 2 rows, yes, it works no problem.
Q Krista • 02/06/2022, 8:59:32 AM Why is there not an option to install without two side Molle panels for 4the gen 4runner? I see it’s an option for Lexus series. I suggest making this mount option available for all the panels. The ability to mount to the back end handles/hooks.
A 02/06/2022, 11:10:39 PM The Lexus have two mounting points (grab handles) while the 4th gen only has a single mounting point (hanger). In this case, the MOLLE panels add needed strength/mounting points below.

Q Santino Foti • 02/15/2022, 10:17:33 PM Will this work in a 22 outback wilderness

A 03/04/2022, 2:04:39 PM It's roughly 6"
Q Felipe • 02/26/2022, 3:24:34 PM Can this shelf be installed on a 5th Gen 4Runner withaout having the side molle panels?
A 02/28/2022, 9:27:47 AM The 5th Gen requires both side MOLLE panels because there is only one factory mounting location up top without them.
Q Larry • 02/28/2022, 12:24:56 PM Does the shelf fit on the 98-07 LandCruiser that has Rear AC installed? Thanks.
A 03/04/2022, 2:04:39 PM Our 04 shop 100 has rear a/c and the shelf fits fine.
Q Gabriel • 04/05/2022, 6:48:52 PM Whats the weight of the shelf for the gx460?

Q Tyler Ciena • 05/04/2022, 10:48:00 PM Everything stored up top slides out. Any solution?

Q Joshua • 11/29/2022, 4:21:58 AM Would this fit in the same area that you would mount the Cargo Basket to say if I didn't want the Cargo Basket & wanted to run this in that spot instead would the brackets it come with work or is it not wide enough?
A 12/01/2022, 11:10:43 AM They won't work lower on the window MOLLE panels, no.
Q Scott Loftin • 01/12/2023, 8:51:43 PM How much space is there between rack and the ceiling on a 4th gen 4runner? Im looking for a good spot to put my compound bow while traveling so it isnt in the way im wanting to know if there’s enough space for it to fit on one of these. Thanks
A 01/20/2023, 4:48:49 PM The floor of the basket sits roughly 6.5" from the roof measured in the rear center.

Q Alex • 04/11/2023, 11:59:56 PM Since this is universal will this fit with other molle panels such as RAGO. 3 generation 4runner.
A 04/17/2023, 7:24:12 PM We cannot verify that. Universal refers to it fitting across our model lines.

A 05/08/2023, 3:25:47 PM We don't have a Subaru application for this at this time.
Q Casey • 05/18/2023, 2:41:38 PM Is there any possible way to make this work without both molle panels on a 4th gen? I don't want the molles because they eliminate the space between the molle and window and I don't usually have too much stuff that I would end up hanging on it.

Thomas | April 13th, 2023
I was worried about head room once the shelf went in, but surprisingly, there's a good amount! The back vents (I have 3 zone) are also more than accessible too. Overall, I'm very satisfied!
Consuelo Bodie (Maryland) | October 18th, 2022
I went from a much bigger truck to the Lexus GX460 and I constantly feel like I don’t have enough space. The shift is helping me keep all my travel gear organized in a compact out of the way space. The shelf is super sturdy and well built. Easy to install, you really don’t even need directions it’s so straight forward. My interior is black so the black shelf is super concealed, another plus. The fasteners though, well they needed some flat black paint so I sprayed them and baked them. Looks awesome!
Stephen Chen (Minnesota) | April 29th, 2022
I had already purchased the side window panels from a different manufacture but they didn’t offer the top shelf for the 3rd Gen 4Runner, so when I saw it for sale here from Victory4x4 I was really excited! This is such an awesome upgrade for making my rig even more useful. The quality and design is top notch and I get compliments on it all the time. Thank you for offering this!! A+
Phuong (Ventura,Ca) | March 31st, 2022
This was the perfect modular addition that I was seeking for my GX460. I'm an avid fisherman and found it very useful for storing the Plano Edge Tackle Boxes. It can hold up to 7-8 normal depth 3700 Edge boxes or 10-12 slim 3700 Edge boxes. I also added a net underneath to store outwear and lighter loose items. Installation is straight forward. I'm no mechanic or professional, but I was able to assemble this and install with a normal set of tools. It's also a high quality and solid product. Being able to mount and coexist with the Victory Molle Panel is a huge bonus. Thank You Victory the awesome products as always!
Matthew (Rochester, NY) | March 7th, 2022
I was searching for ways to squeeze more storage that would specifically fit above my ICECO VL65 fridge/freezer that sits on top of Dobinsons Drawers. This was the PERFECT solution. Mounting was super easy with basic tools. It's VERY sturdy and well manufactured. The powder coat is high quality. I found the molle and pre-drilled holes are actually very useful for mounting items(quick fists, fire extinguisher mount, etc). Highly recommend this to anyone looking to get extra organization from their overland/offroad build.
Dan (MI) | August 14th, 2021
In my quest to solve storage space in my 4runner, I found this setup. Provides a ton of extra storage in an area tha is typically wated space. Super easy install and the machining and finish are great.
