Those are attachment points for limb wires. Attach wires there and to the roof rack and the wire will lift branches, etc. from hitting the front of the truck while off road.

Attachment point for limb risers?
Looks like this with the wires attached:

Pretty cool idea there. Always a bit stunning when some of the bigger limbs smack the window/Apillars

Considering that is the FJ they used for R&D on the snorkel, I bet they may be making up a kit for the FJ

Thats what I thought but I have never seen a set that appear to be bolt on. That would be cool if they were developing a kit.

Turns out they are. Was mentioned in the other River Raider thread.

Swerlz,
Where did you get the limb risers? Did you make them?

Also did you remount the antenna or forego it?

The
limb risers are a work in progress. I mounted them up but The RROR guys
are trying to make a kit. Hopefully I can get the rest of the pieces so
I can put them all on and everything.

The antenna is just a
hideaway antenna and seems to work great. You can find them for pretty
cheap online. I don't use the radio much so I wasn't to concerned at
first.

As far as the price goes, I feel like it is totally worth
it considering that a safari isn't much cheaper and in my opinion pretty
ugly, just my opinion though...

Looks like the question has mostly been answered here, I will add that I'm not sure exactly how they (River Raider) will intend to mount... whether it be rivets or nutserts... but I installed using nutserts, just for ease of potential removal...
