I live in Botswana and have a 2001 Toyota RAV4 4-door import from Japan.

I want to get a Frontrunner roof rack fitted to it and was told by the installers that they have had a few instances of roof cracks appearing on other import vehicles where they fitted roof racks. They say the racks weren't loaded too much, but the cracks appeared nonetheless.

Has anyone had similar issues with cracks on the roof from fitting after-market roof rack systems to their RAVs? I've seen many other import vehicles here with aftermarket racks (Pajeros, Surfs, Prados etc) and they seem to be fine, although that could be because the vehicles themselves have stronger roof structures, I'm not sure.

Any info would be helpful before I decide to go ahead with the fitment.
