The Truck Brigade Team likes to give credit where credit is due. With that being said, the crew at upTOP Overland truly did an excellent job on the design of their Bravo Roof Rack. While the Bravo Rack is easily one of the most versatile roof racks on the market at this time, upTOP decided to step it up a notch and has now released the upTOP Alpha Rack. As the name implies, this rack is considered the best of the best. It is longer, wider, and features more load bars than its sibling (the Bravo). In addition, it features some other goodies (discussed below) that will certainly enhance your experience and maximize your rig’s functionality.
The team at upTOP came together to engineer a rack that is capable of accommodating your lifestyle, whether you use your vehicle for trekking into the unknown, work purposes, or simply daily driving. To design such a well-rounded rack, they utilized high-quality materials while being mindful to keep weight to a minimum. The upTOP Alpha 4Runner Rack features an all-aluminum construction and a stylish powder-coat finish. The use of these materials ensure that your rack will provide you with many years of reliable use and remain looking great while doing so.
Strength and weight weren’t the only thing the engineers over at upTOP Overland had in mind while designing the Alpha 4Runner 3G Roof Rack. They wanted to bring a product to the market that would set them apart from the competition, so once they determined the best materials to use to construct their rack, their focus shifted to maximizing its versatility. The Alpha 3rd Gen 4Runner Roof Rack has a number of unique and functional features. This includes multiple cutouts for scenePODs and lighting, an abundance of tie-down points, and (4) Grab Handles. These upTOP Grab Handles are strategically placed to allow you convenient access to your valuables within seconds. The days of climbing on tires and shimmying across the side of your vehicle to access your goods are over!
