My week in the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition started off with an expensive-sounding, expletive-inciting “crunch” noise. I was merely pulling the pristine flagship Toyota into my garage for safe keeping, proceeding at a yacht-mooring pace when the blood-curdling noise came from overhead. “That ridiculous overlanding roof basket!” I correctly surmised.
It had not occurred to me that a factory-equipped Toyota wouldn’t fit in my garage. The spec sheet height of 74 inches suggests 10 inches of clearance. The standard luggage rack adds 3 inches to that and the basket another 6-3/4. My open garage door apparently hung down just far enough to snag the basket’s wind deflector.
