    Forum search ( its your friend!!) for 'bars rack" gives some info..

    OEM are rare, used..and expensive...
    ...some alternatives are in the links I gave you.

    Ebay, or shipping from USA not a huge issue if nothing in UK available.

    Member VXorado has a non OEM set up you might want to look at IIRC.
    ( some others too..but cant recall..hope they chip in)

    sorry to post all these questions at once, but i have had it for 2 weeks and already i have lifted it, added 35s, carbon'd my bonnet centre, fitted induction kit, and i still need to add bits to get it where i want. gonna be quite a project but think worth it. would rather get advice than trial and error on my own. you have been a massive help JoFotoz and TBH your truck is the kinda look im going for

    Looks awesome Whitey! Steering wheel's on the wrong side though.
    There's no 'I' in denial.

    cladding was horrible before i put some 99p "astonish back to black" form home bargains on it. everything works spot on. even have the remote control and satnav disk (but for japan) and the (analogue) TV + twin aerials!

    Thule 757 rapid footpack works fine for me. Carries canoes/ sea kayak + basket. Some small trimming needed with stanley knife to get a tight fit.

    Hope this helps

    There does seem to be a lot of low mileage JDM's here in the UK. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
    I have recently replaced the standard shocks with Rancho's big improvement in the ride
