Default FJ Cruiser MPAC rack for FJ-60

I got this demo FJ Cruiser MPAC side rack from Doc at Springtail Solutions. The size is 19" wide by 11" tall. I figured it would fit nicely on my rear cargo panels. I'm always looking for ways to keep stuff organized, out of the way and easily accessible. I can't stand digging for stuff or having it roll around.

The rack is beefy and well made. It would definitely hold some heavy gear if you so desired.







I got the MPAC rack painted with good old Rustoleum hammered black. I was originally planning on mounting it to the body between the window and the panel. That would have been possible but I didn't feel like messing with it.

Mounting the rack to the panel should be strong enough for my uses. I don't plan on hanging a ton of weight off it. If I was really ambitious I would have found a way to bolt it on to the supports behind the panel.





I got lucky and the screws holding the panel in place lined up with the slots in the rack. I used two 8mm hex head bolts, washers and lock nuts. I also put a rubber washer between the rack and the panel.



I'll probably get a bunch of Quickfists to attach items like my Streamlight, fire extinguisher, etc. The small ones also hold fishing rods.

Just for example I tossed on a first aid kit and some MOLLE pouches from my BOB.

I'll pick up a pouch that I can toss in stuff I use all the time like a screwdriver, duct tape, gloves, etc.





So far I think this will work wonders for keeping my crap organized. A rack the full width of the Cruiser to go on the roof would be sweet place to mount my fishing rods.
