Maxtrax Recovery Board Mount For Roof Racks

This part is simple and only requires a couple of basic hand tools. It should only take you a few minutes to complete.

Tools Required

  • Ratchet
  • 11mm socket

Step 1. Attach Pins

Attaching Amazon Maxtrax Pins To Prinsu Mount

There are multiple different brands of recovery board pins out there but they should all install to the mounts the same way. They are sold separately. I got a generic set from Amazon.

Step 2. Install Mounts

Installing Maxtrax Brackets On 3rd Gen Tacoma With Prinsu Rack

I installed my mounts on the furthest back cross bar and oriented across the width of the roof.

Each will be installed with (4) carriage bolts, washers, and nuts. Make sure to not completely tighten any hardware until you’ve verified the spacing fits your recovery boards. After that, hand tighten only and do not use an impact wrench, as this will likely strip the light-duty bolts or damage the crossbar.

Step 3. Mount Boards

Slide the recovery boards over the mounting pins and tighten the pins to secure them to the roof. Each set is different, but the ones I used can hold up to four at once.

Final Thoughts

Roof Rack Maxtrax Mount Review

Installing these could not have been any easier and I like how they don’t protrude super high above the boards.

In my opinion, storing recovery boards on the roof rack is a great place to keep them easily accessible when you need them. This is also a good way to free up a bit of space in the bed of your truck!
