After an exhausting search of both this forum and google I'm coming up empty handed.
I just purchased a gently used Taco and have just discovered that the previous owner took them off for whatever reason.
I didn't even know the truck was supposed to have them until I was researching mount options for my mountain bike and realized all these great mounts were for the OEM rail system my truck was missing
Now, my real dilemma comes from the lack of options to replace them...again, I searched, what felt like to the end of the interwebs, and I found nothing for a replacement.
What I did find was an abundance of Tundra bed rails/deck rail systems.
So, my question is twofold:
1. Does anyone know of a source to replace the factory Tacoma Deck Rail system?
2. If this isn't possible, has anyone tried repurposing the Tundra rails for our Tacomas? It would seem you could cut them down and reinsert the end caps, re-drill them appropriately and they might work?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
