Q Kevin • 12/29/2020, 12:57:15 PM how does the rack looks like with the light bar cutout? Thanks.
A 12/30/2020, 5:10:18 PM See our Tacoma rack photos for what the LED fairing looks like: https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VT23RK.html
Q Matt • 01/01/2021, 1:25:56 PM Would the installation be the same for the models with the flush roof rails? Like the XLE?
A 01/04/2021, 10:42:49 AM Yes, you will have the same mounting locations under the flush roof rails. The rack is not designed to work with the panoramic sunroof, however.
Q Rhys Jones • 01/09/2021, 7:12:33 PM What is the weight limit to this rack? Gross amd static. And is a roof rack safe for a roof top tent
A 01/15/2021, 6:07:12 PM Toyota rates the Rav4 roof with a factory rack at "Max load 165 lbs evenly distributed." Our rack itself can handle significantly more weight than that. All weight above 165lbs 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 Rylee • 02/12/2021, 9:45:42 AM Will the set up be the same as in the video for 2021 Rav4?
A 02/15/2021, 12:52:47 PM Yes
Q Jack • 03/07/2021, 3:01:40 AM What exactly makes this rack not compatible with the panoramic sunroof models?
A 03/08/2021, 1:18:58 PM The roof structure is different.
Q Jose • 04/09/2021, 4:36:31 PM Are you guys planning any modification for this to work with the panoramic roof?? Thanks!!
A 04/12/2021, 1:13:17 PM We are not.
Q Matt • 04/21/2021, 2:45:22 PM I wasn’t talking about the weight. My question was about the dimensions. How many inches above the car will the rack go?
A 04/28/2021, 5:50:35 PM Roughly 2.5" to 3" above your roof in the center.
Q Luis • 07/11/2021, 10:04:10 PM Will this rack work with the rav4 prime?
A 07/23/2021, 10:58:16 AM As long as it doesn't have the pano sunroof, we don't see any differences in the roof. But we haven't done an install on the Prime in our shop to verify.
Q Douglas • 08/05/2021, 10:04:32 AM Does this require drilling?
A 08/12/2021, 4:01:01 PM No drilling required
Q Kyle • 08/18/2021, 6:17:45 PM Will this fit on a 2010 rav4?
A 09/02/2021, 12:29:40 PM No
Q KG • 08/19/2021, 11:26:29 AM Does this rack work without Toyota factory-installed crossbars? Or is the rack designed to work in combination with the standard Toyota crossbars?
A 09/02/2021, 12:29:40 PM It doesn't require the factory rack to have been installed on the vehicle, nor will it work with the factory rack installed.
Q Adam • 08/20/2021, 2:43:29 PM Why isn't the front and rear fairing cut to clear the roof rather than use several methods of paint protection?
A 09/02/2021, 3:39:52 PM Because the fairings will vibrate and make noise under wind load.
Q JT • 09/01/2021, 1:03:24 AM Will this work on a 2011 Rav4?
A 09/02/2021, 3:54:08 PM No
Q Jordan Pope • 11/26/2021, 0:24:56 AM Does this rack require dropping the headliner on the RAV4? Looking for a simple bolt on install.
A 12/01/2021, 9:51:56 AM There is no drilling, but dropping the headliner is required because there are no threaded mounting locations from the factory. The factory rails mount with bolts and nuts underneath the headliner.
Q Mike • 02/12/2022, 5:15:39 PM What are the dimensions of the Rav 4 roof rack? Total and useable, thanks
A 02/14/2022, 3:32:27 PM Exact dimensions and a diagram can be found at the end of the installation document on the product page.
Q Will • 03/07/2022, 10:50:50 PM Will this work on the 2022 Hybrid LE?
A 03/11/2022, 4:11:21 PM We have not tested on the hybrid.
Q Christina Melgoza • 03/12/2022, 10:44:40 AM Will this fit the 2022 Adventure RAV4?
A 03/28/2022, 3:53:08 PM Yes, it will.
Q Kurtis • 03/14/2022, 6:04:19 PM How much weight can this hold? Would it be able to hold a lightweight tepui?
A 03/28/2022, 3:55:37 PM Yes
Q RTJ • 04/10/2022, 11:02:08 PM Do you offer or know of a place that will do professional installs?
A 04/22/2022, 2:27:34 PM Send us an email at [email protected]
Q Matt • 04/19/2022, 11:02:08 AM Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere: for the light bar cut out version of the front fairing is it compatible with Diode Dynamics 42 inch light bar. Found here https://www.diodedynamics.com/stage-series-42-white-light-bar.html They also show additional dimensions in there installation document: http://images.diodedynamics.com/docs/install/universal/stage_series/Stage_Series_42_inch_installation_guide_2B.pdf Based on these it appears the housing of the light is 43 inches exactly, will this require modifications to the fairing?
A 04/25/2022, 3:01:50 PM The cutout is designed for a max 41.25" housing and the max stud mounting width is 43.5". The fairing cutout would need to be made larger, but the bar would likely be too wide to mount on the light bar mounts.
Q Carter Smith • 06/14/2022, 12:33:35 PM How much weight will the rack hold? Like max load?
A 06/21/2022, 11:36:15 AM We can not recommend anything over the factory roof rating of 176 lbs, however our rack will hold more than that. The limitation is on the roof.
Q Russell Delgado • 06/16/2022, 7:29:47 PM Will this rack work on models without factory rails installed?
A 06/22/2022, 2:01:57 PM It doesn't require the factory rack to have been installed on the vehicle.
Q Owen • 06/24/2022, 7:33:41 AM Can you strap a kayak to this roof rack & if so do you need any accessory add ons to do so?
A 06/24/2022, 10:10:24 AM You could use J-style kayak mounts (be sure they will work for a 1"x2" crossbar) or you could just lay the kayak upside down directly on the rack and strap it down.
Q owen • 07/11/2022, 9:27:04 PM This will fit a 2022 hybrid XLE correct? Also these roof rack gets mounted into the factory roof rails correct? I don't have to mount it into the actual roof with drilling holes correct?
A 07/12/2022, 1:06:02 PM It will. It mounts to the mounting locations used by the factory roof rails. There is no drilling required but does require dropping the headliner to remove them and use the factory mounting locations. Checkout the install video toward the bottom of the page for more info.
Q Andrew • 08/10/2022, 1:06:30 PM I just bought a 2022 RAV4 Hybrid Limited. Have you perhaps tested the aerodynamics of your empty wreck left on the vehicle you around? I’m thinking increased fuel consumption, the question being how much?
A 08/15/2022, 3:42:54 PM We have not tested any fuel consumption changes with our racks.
Q Tim • 12/17/2022, 9:21:17 AM I followed the install video and I ended up with a lot of extra hardware afterwords. What is this extra hardware for? Thanks.
A 12/20/2022, 2:28:33 PM We use the same hardware pack for multiple racks.
Q Tyler • 01/09/2023, 3:24:44 PM I'm assuming this will fit the 2020 Hybrid model. Can i get the link for the link for the instal?
A 01/10/2023, 12:51:06 PM We have not tested on a hybrid specifically, the install doc is here: https://www.victory4x4.com/mm5/installdocs/INSTALL_VRAV5RK.pdf
Q Nathan • 02/28/2023, 2:34:28 AM Is this compatible with the 2023 Hybrid XLE?
A 03/13/2023, 11:29:25 AM We have not tested on a hybrid specifically.
Q Alejandro • 04/01/2023, 9:13:22 PM Does this model fits the 2019 toyota tacoma double cab?
A 04/17/2023, 7:24:12 PM No, but this does: https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VT23RK.html
Q Melissa • 01/27/2024, 12:47:19 PM Since its not drilling, does it require the headliner to be removed to install?
A 02/14/2024, 5:46:06 PM Yes, this rack requires the headliner to be removed during installation.
Q Mathieu Delisle • 04/05/2024, 12:31:09 PM I have one of your rack on my 2014 RAV4 and im looking to change for a 2024 model. Will the rack fit or do i need new hardware or a new rack to make it fit?
A 04/15/2024, 5:21:02 PM The 2014 rack is not compatible on the 2024 model.

1 year and holding up!
(Oregon) | April 27th, 2022
Purchased this rack for my wife’s RAV4 build beginning of summer 2021 and it’s just about hitting the 1 year mark and we are still extremely happy with it! It has held up with all attachments and gear that we have mounted to it. No signs of rusting or major ware anytime soon. Definitely recommend this Rack! For any RAV4 owner.
Satisfied with the roof
(California) | February 2nd, 2022
Installed everything just as directed like the youtube video with no hiccups; was an easy installation. My only complaint is that there are vibration noise between 25mph - 55mph. Once I go above 55, the noise is gone. The vibration noise is not an issue as I have gotten use to it. Still 5 stars and would still recommend for 5th Gen Rav4 owners.
Note From Victory 4x4: Kou, please feel free to reach out to our tech support team and we can help figure out what's up.
Works with my Panoramic sun roof!
(California) | August 8th, 2021
So I bought this even though it says it’s not compatible with the panoramic roof. I installed it today and it works just fine. I put the first cross bar on skipped 3 and put 2 rear ones on, this allows the panoramic sunroof to open. If I put the other three bars on I wouldn’t be able to open the sun roof. I don’t really use the sun roof so I may put all the bars on. I went for a drive today I got to 80MPH and no noise, or vibration! Great product thank you
Note From Victory 4x4: Casey, thanks for the review and glad this worked for you! But just to reiterate, because you can't run all the crossbars and use the pano roof, and because we haven't tested this setup at all, we are still officially not recommending this to future customers.
How to deliver
(Suadi Arabia) | February 26th, 2021
Can you deliver the shipment to Saudi Arabia? What is the delivery method and how long will it take?
Great Rack
(Texas) | May 22nd, 2021
Have had the rack for a few months now and am still very happy with it. I did a video review on it on youtube, but here are some notes on it: -Would be awesome to have a "SS or Black" hardware option...note a big deal -The mounting brackets need the notch to be a little bigger so the edge of the bolts dont hit it and sit flush - Bigger hole caps would be nice. Again not a huge deal bc Prinsu doesn't even give you any Would still recommend this rack
(Texas) | July 13th, 2022
It looks good but I would not go this way if I ever purchase a roof rack again the instructions are useless and the bolts are all thrown in an old plastic bag unlabeled and there is no exact amount of each bolt so you can’t figure it out by laying it out. You can’t fit a carriage bolt you will never mount anything on top that needs carriage bolt the channel is to small for any.
Note From Victory 4x4: We use the same hardware for many racks, but we do put the exact hardware used on each model in the installation documents for the product. Sorry for the confusion.
Missing assembly hardwares/sent short
(California) | December 18th, 2021
Received the rack had few minor scratches didn’t care about it and it was missing bolt, the rubber plugs, and nuts. Emailed over 5 days ago no respond. The rack is alright not as advertised one side was off a little and the bolt holes for the front mount wasn’t matching the bolt. The only reason I’m putting is one star is missing assembly hardwares and no respond.
Note From Victory 4x4: Mohammad, sorry for the delay in response. We are experiencing a larger than usual volume of messages due to Black Friday and the holiday season. We apologize for the missing hardware and our customer service team will get with you as soon as possible with a resolution.
