Ask us anything

Q Tony Sanchez • 07/08/2021, 2:07:09 PM Will it fit 2012 Highlander ?
A 07/08/2021, 2:14:39 PM No, 2014 to 2019.
Q John doe • 07/20/2021, 8:24:37 PM What are the size dimensions?
A 07/23/2021, 12:10:40 PM The top of the rack is roughly 79" x 47"
Q Dmytro • 08/25/2021, 11:39:51 PM Can you please tell what load capacity? Thank you
A 09/02/2021, 3:54:08 PM Toyota rates the roof with a factory rack at "Max load 165 lbs evenly distributed." Our rack itself can handle significantly more weight than that, and we've had 250 lbs dynamic weight on it without issue, static capacity is certainly well above that. All these weight will be at your discretion as they are above Toyota "recommended" capacities. If you need more information please contact us directly at [email protected]
Q dan • 10/04/2021, 2:50:06 PM Can this be mounted to a flush roof, or does my highlander need the factory side rails?
A 10/05/2021, 5:33:34 PM You do not need the factory rails.
Q ISuper • 10/13/2021, 6:38:58 PM Will it fit a 2021 Highlander XLE?
A 10/18/2021, 11:26:30 AM It will not, 2014-2019 only.
Q Ronny Moreno • 11/14/2021, 1:51:17 AM Will it fit a 2019 highlander limited platinum? It has a panoramic sunroof
A 11/15/2021, 10:13:48 AM It does not work with the panoramic roof.
Q Elwood Suggins • 11/20/2021, 11:17:30 PM On a 2016 Toy Highlander XLE does the rack use existing rail mounting points or is drilling required?
A 12/01/2021, 9:31:44 AM It uses existing mounting points and additional rubber feet. No drilling is required.
Q Mike • 02/10/2022, 4:57:37 PM Do you plan on making one for 4th Gen (2020+) Highlander? If so, what’s anticipated release?
A 02/11/2022, 12:12:56 PM It is not yet on our list.
Q Garett • 04/04/2022, 11:54:52 AM The 2019 Highlander XLE has a chrome piece that runs the length of the roof unlike the LE with the plastic strip in the rain channel. How would the Kit mount on the XLE?
A 04/04/2022, 3:47:42 PM They will come off first. They are mounted using the same factory bolts in the roof as shown in the video.
Q Nick • 07/06/2022, 3:25:48 AM Why does this not work with the panoramic sunroof?
A 07/08/2022, 11:09:57 AM It will interfere with the panoramic sunroof opening and the mounting locations are different.
Q Riki • 07/28/2022, 1:23:19 AM Can it support a tent on the roof like your 4Runner?
A 08/15/2022, 4:41:47 PM Yes, however, Toyota rates the roof with a factory rack at "Max load 165 lbs evenly distributed." Our rack itself can handle significantly more weight than that, and we've had 250 lbs dynamic weight on it without issue, static capacity is certainly well above that. All these weight will be at your discretion as they are above Toyota "recommended" capacities.
Q Riki • 07/28/2022, 1:26:52 AM Can you add a picture of a cut out 40” roof led mount? Can I purchase both with and without the cut out led front?
A 08/15/2022, 4:41:47 PM Very similar to the photos shown in these GX photos with a lightbar: https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VGXRK.html
Q Kris • 10/05/2022, 7:23:42 PM Do you have image of the product on lightbar or how to install the lightbar etc.
A 10/11/2022, 4:41:02 PM No Highlander photos, but our GX rack shows a very similar lightbar setup: https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VGXRK.html
Q Johnson Tran • 02/27/2023, 5:38:50 PM Will this fit a 2019 Highlander SE with a moonroof?
A 03/13/2023, 11:29:25 AM Yes.
Q Cynthia • 04/12/2023, 7:54:22 AM Does the hatch still have room to open and close as well as the window only option? How much tolerance is there between the top of the hatch to the end of the rail?
A 04/17/2023, 7:24:12 PM The hatch functions fine with the rack.
Q Gabriel • 04/15/2023, 2:24:11 PM In theory this would allow the panoramic roof to function if*** spacers of some sort were used at the bolt points. My question is will it just as structurally sound if the front wind flare isn’t flush and resting on the roof?
A 05/01/2023, 12:45:33 PM Sorry, even with spacers it won't work with the pano roof.
Q Rommel Guinoo • 05/18/2023, 7:59:45 PM How long is the shipping going to Sunnyvake CA. 94085 zipcode?
A 05/22/2023, 5:28:28 PM Please reach out to our Customer Support team. [email protected]
Q Taylor • 06/16/2023, 9:58:10 PM Wanting to mount to the top of a 2012. What is different between the 2013 and a 2012 roof that it wont fit?
A 06/22/2023, 10:55:23 AM That would be a different generation of Highlander altogether, our rack was only designed to fit the 14-19 Highlander.
Q Robert • 09/10/2023, 5:45:07 PM What are measurements of this rack ( 2015 Toyota Highlander LE )? What is the gap measurement from roof to cross bar. ( Space between cross bar and roof ). Will this rack hold Tuff Stuff Alpha II RRT? Thanks
A 01/24/2024, 11:12:00 AM That gap will change depending on where you measure on the roof, as the rails are straight and the roof has a curve. Our rack should accommodate that tent just fine though.
Q C Sanchez • 09/28/2023, 0:31:04 AM Is there a way to modify the install to work with the panoramic sunroof? Wife's hand-me-down car but I will never open it so if not an issue if I can no longer use it.
A 10/19/2023, 11:35:31 AM We have not tested that specifically to verify.
Q Pooji • 10/19/2023, 0:05:04 AM Any plans to design a rack for the 4th Gen Highlander and/or 2024+ Grand Highlander?
A 10/19/2023, 11:27:00 AM That's not something that we are currently working on, but we may in the future.

Excellent Roof Rack
(MN) | May 4th, 2023
This is a great product that definitely makes your vehicle not only stand out but ultimately and most importantly more useful. Unfortunately there are very few aftermarket upgrade options available for the HL and I appreciate Victory 4x4 offering this. Awesome that each crossbar has an integrated track for sliding bolts into so you can mount literally anything to them, very handy design that i didn’t expect. Install is very straightforward, I did it myself with ease. Only thing I did differently was use the OEM rubber screw bases for the mounting holes instead of the suggested silicone sealer. I plan on using this for mounting our rooftop tent and looking forward to years of enjoyment with this piece of gear.
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for the review Stephen!
Badass upgrade for the Highlander
(Mossyrock, WA) | October 12th, 2022
This roof rack is well built. There are no rough edges, the components all fit together seamlessly, and the powdercoated finish is smooth with even coverage. It fits the Highlander perfectly and gives it a more rugged, substantial look. It looks and feels like quality, and I expect it to last for years. I watched the video tutorial and assembled and installed it myself, with only help lifting it onto the roof. I can't wait to start adding accessories!
roof tent
(Canada) | November 24th, 2021
Hello, we have existing roof bar in our 2018 highlander xle, questions are. 1. can i replace it with this one? 2. can it handle a 2person roof tent?
Awful fit!
| December 6th, 2021
2 stars review! I got the rack in 6 days, when the expecting time was 10-15 days for the rack plus shipping. It was very fast! 5 start on that! then I installed it and doesn't fit like the video they have on the website. also, they send me the wrong hardware kit, more bolts less nuts. I paid $1000+ and I need to buy NUTS!! ok, not problem. I email the company and I wrote them 3 times to get an answer. to be short, they sent me a new hardware mounts because they think that is the problem and they send me the same number mounting kit and still having the same problem. $1000+ bucks and doesn't fit well!
Note From Victory 4x4: Roberto, there must be something up with the brackets provided, we will be happy to help make it right. We will have our team contact you.
