Hey all, does anyone have experience with expedition ready roof racks for an '89 double cab? Specifically, which mounting techniques work best? My truck has no gutters.

Without gutters you're going to have a problem. There are no load bearing struts built into the roof. Your best bet would be to mount on the canopy and brace the canopy.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
