Eezi-Awn Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series K9 Roof Rack Kit
The K9 Roof Rack System from Eezi-Awn is a revolutionary advancement in expedition-style racks; it is thinner, lighter, stronger, quieter, more functional, more aerodynamic, more durable, and more aesthetically complimentary to your vehicle than the competition.
The K9 systems for the Toyota 80 Series Land Cruiser (and Lexus LX450) come in 1400mm (55") width, and 5 different lengths. Far and away the most popular model is the 2.2M (87") long rack that starts a few inches behind the windshield and finishes an inch in front of the rear hatch. This rack maximizes your roof top capacity. The 1.6M (62") version is a great choice if you want to maintain the use of your sunroof. It starts just behind the sunroof and finishes an inch in front of the rear hatch.
The 80 Series Toyota Land Cruiser rack utilizes gutter mount legs to attach the K9 Platform to the roof. The standard height rack measures 7-3/8" high, from top of the gutter above the second row doors. It allows enough room for options on the bottom of the platform.
Capacity of the K9 roof rack system is broken into two measurements, static weight and dynamic weight. Static is when the vehicle is stationary. Dynamic is when the vehicle is in motion. A dynamic capacity in the range of 500 pounds is possible. That load included a RTT, awning, dual fuel can holder, aluminum storage case with recovery gear, shovel, axe, under mount table, light bar, etc on a 2.2M long rack. A static capacity of 1000 pounds is possible. An example of static load increase would be adding people in the tent on the roof. Please understand these capacities are on vehicles that have modified suspensions designed to manage this amount of weight. They are not a warrantied or guaranteed capacity. Your load capacity will vary.
The K9 Roof Rack System for the 80 Series Toyota Land Cruiser requires no drilling at all for any size rack. Our proprietary gutter mount legs attach to the gutter on the vehicle, with the leg sitting in the gutter and a full width clamp going under the gutter lip.
Installation of this rack system can be done by one person in approximately 1-1/2 hours. Help lifting the platform on the roof would be appreciated. You start by removing the factory roof rack, attach the K9 gutter mount legs to the bottom of the platform, invert and lift on top of the truck roof. Attach clamps and you are good to go. Written instructions are also provided with each rack system. Click Here to Download Instructions.
The components used on the 80 Series Land Cruiser rack systems include a set of K9 gutter mount legs (2 per platform cross brace), and a platform.

Feet vs Legs
The K9 Roof Rack Kit comes with various components. The Mounting Rail is compatible with Gutter-Less Roofs, like those found on the Toyota 4Runner, Tacomas, or 100 / 200 Series Land Cruisers.K9 Roof Rack Feetare then attached to that Mounting Rail. When there is a vehicle with a Gutter, we useK9 Roof Rack Legs.
The K9 Roof Rack Feet come in 3 basic sizes: 40mm / 2.5", 65mm / 3.25", and 90mm / 4". Each of these feet do have a height adjustment range, measuring from the top of the mounting rail vertically to the top of the foot where the platform attaches. At first glance, the available sizes are in the middle of their ranges; this is because Eezi-Awn uses their middle measurement height as the identifier.
40mm (2.5") height range 55-65mm (2.25" - 2.5")
65mm (3.25") height range 75-90mm (3" - 3.5")
