Cargo area already full? Use your roof. The roof rack features cross bars that are designed to secure cargo with more confidence. Provides additional secure tie-down points for various roof rack accessories. Can support a maximum of 75 lb. when weight is evenly distributed across both bars. Two cross bars are integrated in the side rails and swing/lock into position when in use. Both stow into the side rails when not in use to minimize wind noise.

First thing, the vendor sent me PT278-35140 instead of the ###130. I assume it is the updated version as it still fit my 2010 Double Cab Tacoma. The install wasn't crazy difficult. Once I did the drivers side, I was able to install the passenger side within 30 minutes. I used thread locker on the threads of the 5(?) mounting holes on the roof of the truck and some silicon glue around the holes to make sure the rubber washers don't leak. As a bit of advice, install both rails but dont tighten down until you swing the cross bars across the roof and lock them into place. Then tighten the screws down. Even with doing this, locking the cross bars into position across the roof is a bit tight. Also the torque spec for these screws (in inch/pounds) seem kind of high so I just went to 90 in/lbs. Ive carried my 50 lbs kayak at 75-80 miles an hour with no problems.
As other people mentioned, the trim part of the roof rack doesn't follow the contours of the roof exactly. It does lift up in the from a few millimeters but I think I got used to it. There's no difference in feel or wind noise when when driving at 80 mph with the crossbars stowed.
Since there are no specs of this elsewhere online:
Added height to apex of roof (When bars are stowed): ~3.6"
Cross bar dimensions: 2.5x1.5" Oval/Aerodynamic
The rear bar when deployed, clears the portion of the roof near the Satellite radio antenna by ~1.4"
Pros: Appears to be Toyota factory and at least for me was shipped from a nearby Toyota dealership that I recognize, your luck/mileage my vary there though. Overall the installation went fine, it was reasonably easy to install with some time and patience. Directions were typical directions which were not always exactly clear, but a bit of logic can get you past those points. Fit and finish seem solid, added some utility to my truck which I do go off-road with and added some extra light mounting points for floods.
Cons: A couple minor issues, fitment isn't perfect, it settled over time, but one of the front edges was off by a 1/32nd to 1/16th of an inch or so on the leading edge. For a factory part would have liked to see it fit perfectly rather than very good. Also when the bars are deployed across the cab, the wind noise is pretty significant at freeway speeds. One of the reasons for getting this over an aftermarket rack was my hope wind noise would be reduced, it does achieve this by being able to stow the bars, but would have liked for it to be a bit less noisy when in use. Neither of these proved serious issues so I am just knocking a star off for them.
Install thoughts: When I tend to install car parts I often do not torque down fasteners until I have threaded all the fasteners. I found these pieces especially needed that extra little bit of wiggle room to ensure the bolts threaded correctly. I also used my hands to reverse the bolts until I felt the light click of it backing over the start of the threads and then hand turned them down a significant amount of the way to ensure they were properly threaded. With that, I had no difficulty threading them down without significant force or getting the holes to line up. I also followed the directions to deploy the bars before tightening them to ensure they would lock in the cross position as well correctly.
