Access Cab Roof Rack

Has anyone seen or put a nissan roof rack on a Tacoma access cab. I like the oem from toyota but its only for double cab. I really like the nissan rack and was wondering what everyone thought.

The sheet metal is pretty thin on the roof, and using the Nissan rack, that's all you would have to attach it to. I would imagine any load would depress the rack into the roof probably denting it.

I did a custom install of Yakima tracks on my cab. It spread the load over the entire roof span. I still worry about it because as I brake, I hear the roof flex when the mass of the load shifts forward. When I eventually sound deaden the cab, I will be reinforcing the roof with angle iron.


But if you are doing it just for looks, why not add a spoiler?
