Review of the Inno Roof Rack on a 2018 Toyota RAV4

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota RAV-4, we're gonna be test fitting the Inno aero roof rack system, consisting of part numbers INXB108-115. These are the Inno aero crossbars, 42 inches long and 45 inches long. We'll also be using part number INXS200. These are the flush feet for aero crossbars. And finally we'll be using part number INK646, which is the custom fit kit for the RAV-4.The Inno aero roof rack system is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories and freeing up space inside your RAV-4. This can carry anything from bike racks to cargo baskets to cargo boxes.

The bars have an aerodynamic shape, and that, coupled with a rubber strip at the top, is gonna cut down wind noise and drag while you drive, and it also eliminates the need for a inaudible 00:00:45. While the overall look of the roof rack system has a factory style look to it, it does have a couple hindrances. One is gonna be how much space you'll lose by cutting off this end here. Most roof rack systems have bars that protrude past the feet, and this enables you to carry a lot more accessories up on top. With this, you're a little bit more limited.

Instead of being able to carry, say, one cargo box and a couple bike racks, now you're only limited to one cargo box or two bike racks on their own.All the end caps do come with a lock included, so they are secure to your roof once installed, and with removing that, you can see with that strip, you can push it down and this can be used with T-track accessories. These are very easy to install. They simply clamp on to your existing doorframe to be put into place, and all measurements and tools that you'll need to install them come with a kit. Next I'll give you a couple of quick measurements. From the center of the roof to the bottom of the bars is gonna be about 2 5/8 inches.

From the center to the top is gonna be about 3 1/2 inches. So that's more than enough space in between the roof and the bar to attach any roof rack accessories that wrap around the bars instead of using the T-track accessory portion. Also it's not gonna interfere with our sunroof here. And both bars combined have a carrying capacity of 165 pounds, but you always wanna double check your vehicle's roof to make sure it can maintain those weights.Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack system, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. We have our front bar already installed on our roof and we'll show you how we got those measurements a little bit later.

We have our rear bar partially assembled on our table here, and our next step is to take our flush foot, put it on the other side, and start installing our fit kit as well. We'll slide up the inner portion of our arm. We've gone ahead and flipped it over. Then we'll take our piece here. That just kinda fits into place like so. We'll push that back to the inside, and then we'll take this tab here on our foot, place it in like so, slide it back out, and just lightly tighten the screw on the inside with our included Allen tool. Before we tighten it down completely, we're gonna measure out from foot to foot to make sure we have the proper space in between them before we tighten it down. So we'll measure it out. You'll find this in your instructions. Make any adjustments as needed. Tighten the rest of the way. May need to loosen up the other side just a bit so we can make some adjustments here.Now if we take our rubber foot tab. This is numbered to make sure it's going in the proper location. You'll find it in your instructions as well. And that just pushes into place. Then we'll take our clamp and we'll undo the screw on the end, put that in place, and just loosen tighten the screw for now. Now we're ready to place this on the roof of our vehicle.As stated before, we we're gonna show you how we got our front bar into position here. What we did is we set it into place, measured from the center door jam back to the center here. With our rear bar, we're gonna measure from the center door jam to the center of that bar as well. So we'll set our bar into place gently, just to avoid any damage, and then we'll take that measurement from this point to this end. This will take our included tightening tool, and we'll get our clamps just snug up against the doorframe here, and we'll do this on both sides. Once that's done, we'll go back and forth until they're completely tightened down. You're gonna hear audible clicks when you do this from our tool here, and that's gonna let you know that it's torqued to its proper specification. Final step is we'll put our end caps in place, lock those down, and then we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road.And there you have it for the Inno aero roof rack system on our 2018 Toyota RAV-4.
