For a complete overview, review and install on this rack, jump straight to this post.

ARB is at it again with another product. If you know my choice for 4Runner roof racks, then you know I like a slim design. We installed the Baja Utility Rack and the Rhino-Rack. Both of these roof racks are somewhat of a slim option for the 4Runner, but this ARB rack is incredibly slim. With that being said, this rack will not be for everyone.

There are a few highlights about this rack that make it so attractive, to me. The ARB flat rack is available in either steel or alloy. Also, the pricing does not scream “outrageous” like most ARB products.

For the 4Runner, it looks like our rack would be the 87″ X 44″. This is closest to that of a Gobi Rack at 88″ X 45″ and compare that to the Baja Utility Rack at 91″ X 46″.

For the 87″ X 44″ steel rack at a price point of only $495, this is a really good option in terms of pricing but appears to be missing some of the most notable features of most the racks out there, like side rails and a wind deflector. But, this might not be such a bad thing. For some people out there with a lower garage or those entering parking garages. This is also a stretch as most racks will clear these.

Regardless of these extra features, I would be first in line to order this rack. For the 87″ X 44″ alloy rack, it has similar pricing with the leading racks on the market, starting at $914.

Whether you’re looking to mount a rooftop tent, jerry cans, or a canoe, the new ARB Flat Rack provides the strength of an ARB basket rack, with the practicality and clearance of a flat roof rack platform.

Popular sizes within the current ARB Roof Racks range have been replicated in Flat Racks, available in either steel or alloy variants. The six different steel racks are available as non-mesh only. The three alloy racks feature an Amplimesh® mesh floor. Existing roof rack mount kits are retained so will suit cage, trade, touring and flat racks in both steel or alloy.

I’m sure it’s cool and all but I’m the opposite of you and I don’t really like the flat racks. Kinda like skinny jeans! lol! I personally like the function of a basket style roof rack because it makes it easier to pile crap on top. But I’m old school. I got a Aluminum ARB basket style on the way.


Would you pick this rack over your Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX, if you had it to do over again?
