  • Why the Prinsu Rack is the Best Upgrade for Your Tacoma

    by Ryan Horton August 28, 2023 7 min read

    Do you have a Toyota Tacoma that either has a failing rack system or simply looking for a way to increase your storage capabilities?

    You've come to the right place.

    Here at Truck Brigade, we know what your Tacoma needs to become the storage machine it can be.

    The truth is...

    Not all rack systems are the same. Some are heavy and made with low-quality material, while others are lightweight and made with top-tier aluminum. If you're in the market for a new roof rack but aren't sure where to start, let us point you in the right direction.

    You can't go wrong with a Prinsu Tacoma Roof Rack. Prinsu roof racks are highly favored throughout the industry due to their lightweight composition, wind noise reduction, easy assembly, and modular design.

    The Prinsu Cab Rack 2005-2023 is intended for any Tacoma models built between 2005 and 2023 (2nd and 3rd Gen) and just what you need to enhance your time while on the road.

    Still not quite sure why these qualities make for a great roof rack?

    Let us explain in further detail.

    Key Takeaways

    • A Tacoma needs a high-quality rack that can store any equipment you need.
    • Prinsu is one of the leading brands in the industry and is trusted by many Tacoma owners.
    • A rack also allows you to use additional accessories to increase or enhance your cargo hauls.

    Lightweight Is Best

    Why is it so important for your roof rack to be lightweight?

    Think about it. Your rack is always going to be on your vehicle. That is if you don't plan to remove it whenever you're not using it. The installation is very simple, especially with a Prinsu roof rack, but still, you're going to want to leave it on in between trips.

    If you have a heavy rack system on your car, you will be carrying extra weight around with you. This may not be something you've even considered before, but it's an important factor to consider, especially if you frequently go on long road trip adventures.

    Adding any weight to your vehicle will increase your fuel consumption. Sure, it may not necessarily be by a lot, but it adds up fast.

    That's the beauty of most Prinsu racks; they're built to add only a necessary amount of weight to your vehicle so you can still have smooth sailing for your weekend getaways, summer camping trips, or just your day-to-day commute.

    Just because this Prinsu rack features a lightweight composition doesn't mean it's not made with strong, robust material. These racks contain a high-grade aluminum construction built to carry even your most heavy-duty cargo.

    Throw on your canoes, coolers, bicycles, and roof tents; this Prinsu rack can do the job without question.

    No Weather Condition is Too Much

    Weather is unpredictable. Sometimes it's calm and bright and makes for the perfect day to take your Tacoma on the road.

    Other times, it's harsh, windy, and wet; all the worst qualities when it comes to driving conditions. When you're on the road or traveling to an area with harsh weather conditions, it's important to have a rack system that is able to maintain its security and structure.

    As mentioned previously, the Toyota Tacoma Prinsu Cab Rack consists of high-grade aluminum construction. The aluminum may be lightweight, but its durable composition makes it a match for just about any weather condition out there.

    Whether you're driving through the frigid temperatures of northern Alaska, through the windy roads of the Black Hills, or across the barren desert lands of Arizona, with a Prinsu rack, you know your cargo is in safe hands.

    Cut Down on Wind Noise

    How much wind noise are you willing to put up with while you're on the road?

    If you're like most Tacoma owners, the answer is "not very much." That's understandable; who wants to try to listen to your tunes over the sound of excessive wind noise?

    Does this Prinsu Rack generate wind noise?

    The Tacoma Prinsu Cab Rack is designed with an aerodynamic composition. This means Prinsu ensures that their rack allows plenty of airflow while on the road, preventing it from catching too much wind and increasing the amount of noise on your travels.

    This aerodynamic design also plays a role in cutting down on fuel consumption, as too much wind resistance causes strain on your vehicle's performance.

    Prinsu wants to make sure your experience on the road has as little resistance as possible. In addition to their racks' already aerodynamic design, the Prinsu wind deflector is sure to enhance the overall wind resistance.

    All Assembly Hardware Included

    Do you plan to install your Prinsu Tacoma Cab Rack on your own?

    Many people opt to have their racks installed professionally. While this is a smart choice for some, tackling the job on your own is even better.

    What makes this installation so easy?

    First, this Prinsu rack attaches directly to Tacoma factory mounting holes. No drilling is required! This is where we hear most Truck or SUV owners having uncertainty, not sure if they want to drill into their vehicle and potentially leave space for the rain to get in or not drill adequately enough for their rack to be installed.

    With your Tacoma and Prinsu rack, you don't have to worry about this at all.

    Secondly, this rack comes with all of the hardware you need to get the job done right the first time. No more having to sift through your toolbox and hope you've grabbed the right equipment, only to find out halfway through the job that something's missing.

    So, regardless if you've been installing roof racks for many years or if this is your first rodeo, Prinsu gives you everything you need to successfully install your rack trouble-free.

    The Tacoma Prinsu Rack is Customizable

    What cargo or outdoor equipment do you plan to haul?

    Depending on what you have, the way your rack is installed matters. The cross bars that attach to your Prinsu rack are what allow you to secure your overhead load.

    Prinsu makes their racks fully modular, meaning you have the option to change the crossbar support to fulfill your individual needs.

    Another reason this is helpful is if you have specific accessories attached to your rack. Some accessories are larger than others and intended to support specific pieces of equipment.

    USA Made

    Don't buy a rack that's made in China. If USA-made products are important to you, Prinsu has you covered. All of Prinsu's products, including their Tacoma rack, USA made, so you know you're getting a high-quality item.

    A lot of people don't think about where their products come from and what buying foreign products does to our economy. Sure, there are some items you can't buy in the US, but for the most part, you can find just what you need while putting your money back into your country.

    Prinsu prides itself on offering USA-made products, and its reputation for being one of the top contenders in the industry proves its efforts.

    Elevate Your Adventures

    By far, the main reason you need a Prinsu Tacoma Rack is to elevate your adventures!

    With a roof rack or top rack, you give yourself the option to secure down equipment that you don't want in your cargo bed or in your back seat. Even if you intend to use these areas of your truck, having a rack gives you even more space that would otherwise go unused.

    Family travel means you need enough inside seating to house everyone. If you don't have a rack, you may not have enough room in your truck bed to carry everything you need. Or, it may not be a secure enough place to bring certain items along with you.

    Having a rack takes your Tacoma to the next level and gives you more power and control over your experience.

    Even if you're not going camping or road tripping, having a rack is a great way to keep certain items safe while transporting others. You don't want heavy equipment or tools damaging more delicate items, which you can easily store overhead with your Prinsu rack.

    The possibilities are endless when it comes to your rack system, and after your first cargo haul, you'll be wondering how you managed to function without it.

    Accessorize Your Prinsu Rack System

    Don't stop after your rack system's installation; add roof rack mounted products to your Tacoma.

    Prinsu makes just about any accessory you can think of when it comes to Trucks and SUVs.

    Need a light bar? Prinsu has a light bar mount designed to securely house your lighting system.

    Have trouble accessing overhead gear? No problem. Check out Prinsu's Ridgeline handles. These handles attach directly to the rack system and add a bit of much-needed hand room for you to hang on to.

    Maybe you're a true adventurer with a rooftop tent. You're going to need a way to secure it to your rack. Prinsu's tent mounts are the perfect accessory to support a wide range of tent types and brands.

    As you can see, Prinsu doesn't fall short when it comes to its Truck and SUV accessories. If you're looking for a specific item or want to see what all Prinsu offers, check out our list of every Prinsu product we sell. Whether you're looking for tool mounts, additional tie-down options, Prinsu shield plates, or a wind deflector, we've got something for everyone.

    Give Your Tacoma What It Deserves

    A Prinsu Roof Rack ensures you get what you pay for, with the comfort of knowing your product is USA made.

    So, if you're looking to increase your cargo space, there's no better option than the Tacoma Prinsu Rack. There's no better time than today to take your Tacoma to the next level.
