The Defender Rack line is produced to exacting standards, and built for years of trouble-free use. Ease of installation is always at the forefront of our designs.
When I ordered the roof rack there was nothing else to help me purchase the correct bolts and or hardware. Where can I purchase them to attach it to my truck?

Q: How much static weight can this rack hold ? I have a 98 4runner that im going to put a roof top tent on and was wondering if it will hold it ? Answer this question
A: Smittybilt does not have an official static rating for defender racks. It all depends on the bracket system you use. As long as you don't use drill in brackets, you should have no issues with mounting a roof top tent.
