Laser Cut. Precision Formed. A perfect fit.

But we didn't stop there. The eX ZULU also looks great, with a precise fit and finish that's unparalleled in the industry. We used advanced 3D modeling, stress analysis, and top-notch design software to make sure it's the best of the best.

So much storage...

It boasts increased load capacity and smart locations for attaching your critical gear, and the included mating system lets you extend the load platform over the entire vehicle.

We've also added adjustable cross bars and ergonomic grab handles, so you can make the most of your truck bed and carry all your rooftop tents, water tanks, and storage boxes with ease.

And if you're worried about installation, don't be.

We've made it easy with our optional scenePOD side lighting and hand-made quickWIRE harnesses that you can install yourself - no expensive workshops necessary.

The scenePOD and quickWIRE products are optional accessories. NOT INCLUDED with eX ZULU roof rack.

Manufactured in Colorado

We take great pride in the fact that all of our roof and bed racks are designed, tested, and manufactured right here in Colorado. Putting forth every effort to work with local suppliers we like to cultivate relationships with real people, and real companies and try to source as many components as possible from people we have actually shaken hands with.

Can you handle that?

Something as simple as a way to brace yourself when climbing up to grab that critical piece of equipment seemed like such a simple idea to us in 2019 with the release of the Alpha roof rack. A real grab handle instead of a knuckle scraping hole punched in the side of your roof rack....genius! Equipped with our brand new Grab Handle 2.0 the ZULU racks make gear easier than ever to grab and go. Because of the proprietary aluminum injection used to make the handles they can easily support 500 pounds with no problem and they fit your hand like a....handle.

Silver hardware?

Not on your life. We scoured the world over for beautiful black hardware that won't bleed or discolor when left to the elements for years on end. The hardware we selected for use in the ZULU roof rack assembly has undergone accelerated UV testing to ensure that it will always be as pretty as it was the day you put it together. It cannot be overstated what a difference this makes to the appearance of your rig. We still trust the torture tested 316 stainless hardware for critical anchor points between the racks and vehicles but if you can see the hardware after installation, every effort was put in to make sure that hardware was blacked out.

Can I still use my sunroof?

The ZULU roof rack for this vehicle allows full operation of both the vent and open feature with no additional parts required.

Can I color match the rack to my truck like the Alpha?

Can I color match the rack to my truck like the Alpha?

You know before we started in this game when it came to roof racks you could get any color you wanted as long as that color was black. We stormed on the scene with roof racks that looked like they belong on the vehicle in a way nobody had ever done before, and the rest is history.

Because we have our own powder coating facility we can custom color match our roof racks to most requests. We've spent a lot of time and resources working with manufacturers to develop factory matched powder coat that results in an amazing look with a durable finish that you can drag through the toughest terrain. If you want a color that we can't get a match for in powder coat your parts will undergo a process where they are powder coated black as a base layer and then delivered to a world class body shop that uses your VIN number to finish your parts in OEM quality paint and clear coat giving the roof rack parts the exact same durability as the rest of your vehicle.

When ordering your rack you will see that we have listed the most popular colors in the drop menu. These are the rack color choices that are selected most often but are by no means the only options that we have. If you don't see your color choice listed simply select "My color isn't listed" and proceed to checkout. One of our experts will reach out to you during order processing to get your VIN number and color information to ensure a beautiful color match for your adventure vehicle. Any color accent selected for the ZULU roof rack will be applied to the outer panel as shown in the images below with all remaining parts finished in our proprietary Stealth Black powder coat finish. 

This kit includes the following components:

Driver and Passenger Side Roof Rack Body in Stealth Black Powder Coat.

Driver and passenger side Ambi-Armor. These parts can be color matched to your vehicle using the drop down menu located to your right.

Integrated Grab Handles that assemble easily with no specialized tools. This rack includes four (4) grab handles, so you will have two (2) on each side of the vehicle.

Rigid mounting feet that employ factory mounting locations without the need for drilling additional holes in your vehicle.

All required hardware for reliable installation.

This roof rack fits the following vehicle(s) without any modification to the vehicle itself and mounts securely using factory mount points provided by Toyota:

  • Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
  • Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 3rd Generation (2016-2023)

When you send us an email, we answer it. If you call our phone number someone will pick up the phone and it will not be an machine telling you that someone will be right with you. Our entire team is involved with the daily operations here and everyone of them are 100% empowered to assist you any way they can answering questions and providing expert advice to give you the piece of mind that when you choose upTOP, we choose you back.
