The amount of wind noise I got from this rack was insane. Going over 50+ mph it sounds like I'm in a tornado! Overall the build was decent but wish there was some way to get rid of the wind noise. I tried everything and even contacted Victory.
Note From Victory 4x4: Mike, wind noise is not a common thing we hear about this rack. Please contact our customer service team again so we can help you troubleshoot.

Purchased both the roof rack and the sliders. Install went well referred to the online video more than anything. Wish now that I purchased the roof rack with the light cut out but we’ll see what I end up doing for lights. Hope they change all the bolts to a black metal don’t really like the shiny stainless look prefer black on black. Overall great products!

I purchased this rack several months ago and have had it installed for a couple months now. I love this rack! It looks sharp, it is constructed quite well, and the versatility is exactly what I was looking for. A couple notes regarding my experience:
As was mentioned by someone earlier, the power coating on the ends of the aluminum cross bars did make the install a little frustrating but it was something that was easily worked through with some patience.
I was sent two right-side forward mounting brackets (the forward ones are side-specific). Since I didn't find that out until I had already put the rack together and was doing the install at a community garage I had to continue the install with only 5 mounts until the correct mount was received. Thankfully, Victory4x4 got the new hardware sent in super short time so I was only riding with the partial-install for a couple days.
I installed a Diode Dynamics 42" Stage Series light bar in the cutout. If you haven't checked out Diode Dynamics, do yourself a favor and check them out. Anyway, the light bar was able to fit in the spot set behind the wind fairing without any modifications. The cross bar and light was at the furthest aft position and there was about an inch and a half to two inches between the wind fairing and the front face of the light. That being said, I was getting a low frequency rumble between 50-65 mph that was headache-inducing! After some trouble shooting, I found that this was because my light bar was set back from the fairing enough to create a turbulent wind event under the fairing at those speeds. The solution was pretty simple, I notched the sides of the wind fairing to allow the light bar to move forward and be flush with the front of the fairing. Now there's no rumble and the wind noise is considerably less.
All in all, I'm very satisfied with this product, the customer service, and the company in general, and I would recommend them to anyone!
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for the review! Glad you were able to work out the buffeting with the larger light bar.

I was nervous about removing the weather stripping from my car and cutting it to fit around the rack, but it was a lot easier than expected. Threads were a little tight during assembly, but with the right tools everything goes together securely. Clearance between the rack and roof is sufficient for me to mount my Yakima roof box, which just grabs two of the cross beams. Happy with the final look and functionality.

I have been researching a lot of roof racks for my Tacoma. In my humble opinion, Victory won me over with their price, their expandability, their functionality, their powder coating, and the aspect of it having three uprights on both sides. Please look around and you will recognize that you will keep on coming back to Victory over and over again, like I did. Wind noise is pretty much nonexistent and customer service is absolutely top-notch. Victory now has a customer for life.

Roof rack was delivered as detailed in their delayed production advertisement. Assembling and mounting took a bit longer than expected due to a bit of debris (probably from powder coating) making it harder to bolt on. The sales/service team reached out and sent a new piece to correct the issue. Very helpful with the entire process. Highly recommend it.
Super durable and have been adding more to my truck.

I've had the roof rack on my 2020 tacoma for several months now and although I love the look and utility of the roof rack, I have a couple suggestions for future revisions and/or potential buyers.
1) The edges of all the aluminum pieces were not de-burred prior to powder coating so there are sharp edges in all the cutouts where the coating will flake off almost immediately.
2) The threads on the ends of the rails were not protected from powder coating and need to be "recut" by the bolt when assembling the rack. Be very careful on this step not to cross-thread the soft aluminum.
3) Unlike the prinsu rack, this Victory rack does not include a ridgid cross-member for the front and rear windscreen plates. You simply cannot use this rack with them floating in the air above the roof as they are flexible and vibrate like crazy above 40mph.
4) Extreme care must be taken to clean any dirt or contaminants from between the rack and the weather stripping ASAP as this will lead to the paint being rubbed off.
5) Be aware that the rear windscreen sits above the rails even on its lowest setting, not allowing long objects to be placed on the rack and overhang in the back.
6) Also the rear windscreen will inevitably contact the stock tacoma roof antenna and leave a small dent-line on the plastic over time. would be nice to see a cutout for it or perhaps make the rack 1/2" longer in the back to account for it.
6) The bolt size that fits the slot in the rails is metric 6-1. Imperial 1/4-20 will also work with some filing/grinding.
Its a very sturdy roof rack that gets a ton of compliments, but be aware of its limitations!

I love the roof rack, its very well built and definately reflects the quality I was hoping for. I appreciated that it was a little cheaper than prinsu and came with the weatherstripping which other sites would charge extra for. Thank you for making a rack for an access cab, everything else I found was for a double cab. I also like it because it provides enough clearance for my kayak racks. Very happy with it would recommend to anyone.

I'm installing on a 2016 Tacoma and your install doc is poor. I would like to see better close ups on the mounts, bolts and all kinds of things that are lacking. Please contact me and I'd be glad to provide more feedback to help you improve the install process. Wide angle and far away shots aren't helpful. FYI. Can't wait to use this roof rack but I'm struggling getting it installed.

After receiving my roof rack after purchase (got it faster than expected), I set out with the install following the directions and video on the website. It was definitely easy and simple to install!
The roof rack was my first purchase from Victory4x4 and because of the awesome product and great customer service, all off my fabrication mods on my Tacoma are from Victory4x4! You will NOT be disappointed with their products! I love my roof rack and would choose to buy it again if I had to!
