I’m not proud of this as a solution BUT its necessary for all those that are contemplating removing their OEM 80 Series roof rack. One of the things that eventually needs to be take care of is the roof rack residual rust. Our trucks all have to deal with the rust on the OEM lame ass roof rack. So annoying. For those that need a quick solution can be be as temporary or as permanent as needed, this is all you need. For now this kit is to deal with the existing holes where the factory rivnuts are in the roof. Each needs to be dealt with before the rain starts. These are EXTRA wide button head stainless steel screws with UV stable rubber washers. The ID of the washers need to go around the outside of the rivnuts because they sit proud of the roof. The flanged stainless bolts need to squeeze the rubber washer to create a positive seal to prevent water intrusion. It’s not super sexy but it absolutely solves the issue until you can take care of the rust at another time in the very distant future.
NOTE: This kit is for the main roof rack but could also be used for the roof ribs.
• (8) Extra-wide stainless steel M5 flanged screw

Good solution to get rid of the ugly silicone caulk that I was using to keep water out.
These are well made and improved fit and finish over my homemade solution. They've made it through several rainstorms so far with no issues. Great solution!
Its the only option available for filling holes after removing stock roof rack. It does the job.
