When it comes to carrying large items on the roof of a vehicle, tradies know best.
TuffRacks are designed and built in New Zealand specifically for the trade market, so you know they are the toughest around. The powder coated end brackets look great and are super strong, while the stainless steel crossbar features a iron phosphate anti-rust E-coating for strength and longevity. Each bar is individually assembled and has a load rating of 160kg.
These racks use a gutter-mounting system and consist of an inner and outer section which allows adjustment from 1050mm to 1500mm, so they can fit a wide range of vehicles. Tuffacks are sold as single units and vehicles will require 2-3 racks.
The racks come complete with everything you need to install them. Before ordering, figure out the clearance you need by measuring your vehicle from the bottom of the roof gutter to the highest point of the roof and make sure there is at least 20-25mm of clearance to the bottom of the bar. The TuffRack High has 300mm of clearance from the gutter-mount to the bottom of the bar.
TuffRacks are the strongest, most reliable and the best value for money roof racks available, which is why they are essential equipment for everyone from builders, plumbers and electricians, right through to DIY champions and camping enthusiasts. Grab yours today.

Easy to install, solid and they do the job
Definitely worth every penny as you can they are heavy duty and have had no problems at all except the height which I trimmed off a few inches from the bottom and crimped the bottoms and simply drilled a hole in the center of bar for nut and bolt so can be adjusted to suit. Very great design and I don't mind sending people photos to show you how I done it. Thanks to the team at Trade Tested.
Was having trouble finding a roof rack that would fit our recently purchased Mazda Bongo Camper. These fit and were easy to fit (?!). Only problem was that the middle size was about 10 mm to low and the tallest size that we got is higher than we need. However it does fit and that is all that matters. Thanks. :-)
Great set of racks easy to fit and no damage to roof gutter.
I think they are just too tall. Unfortunately the 175mm would have been too short for my van. I picked up a load of materials and drove maybe 3kms down the road and I looked like the roof racks were going to shift off my van. They were on about a 30* angle!
I havn't actually used it yet but I know it will suit my purposes. The guttering on my van was too narrow to fit the rack as might be normal because the 'U'bolts would not allow a standard wallboard sheet (1200mm)to sit without damage (the van's fault, not yours). However, by reversing the upright so as to put the 'U'bolts to the outside, I have achieved all the clearance I require.
