I would think so? Shouldn't be that hard to bolt that stuff to your bed.

don't think so, IIRC my channels in the frontier were ALOT larger than the tacomas.

Wait do you mean put the utilitrack system in the tacoma, or use the cleats from the frontier in the tacoma?

Nissan Utilitrac is far superior to Toyota's system. Utilitrac is the exact demsions as Unistrut (or Cantrus where I am from.) It is like a giant mechano set for electricians. You can build anything with it. The rails set into the bed make for added conveinience.

If there is only one thing better about the frontys this is it. Trust me I had one and thanked myself for buying a Nissan every time I used it!

the fact that the tracks run down the middle of the bed was really convenient also.

Hah yeah i was thinking of replacing my rails with unistrut! I'm an electrician with plenty of experience with it and access to hardware for it. Spring nut and an eye bolt = unlimited tiedowns!

I just thought of something.

You could probaly buy some narrow P700 (or R1 or whetver it is called, the narrow stuff) Unistrut in stainless and bolt it on top of the Toyota rails. It would almost be as good as Utilitrac, minus the rails mounted to the box floor.

Yep, I thought of doing this a few months back as well. I was looking to possibly buy one of the many length bedrail kits trdparts4u stocks...

I thought a pair of these might fit right between the raised sections of the bottom of the bed like the Frontier. Using Tunda cleats might be stronger, or at least not look as weak as the plastic Taco ones.

I have been eyeing some stuff called "E-track" at my local farm/ranch supply store. It's cheap, and it looks like I could probably install two 24" sections on the front corners of my bed and be pretty much good to go for anything I need to tie down.

I just finished installing "unistrut" tracks inplace of the Toyota tracks.
I used the 1 5/8" X 7/8". Had to drill a couple holes in it to match up with the factory fastner locations.
I used a plated strut and did not like it so I painted it black.
The paint may not hold up well so I may have them powder coated if they do not wear well.

Also did not want to use the factory Torx head fastners so I picked up some hex or allen button head stainless steel fastners.

The stuff is great for building any type of brackets of mounts in the bed.

The factory rails seem to be able to use the 1 1/4" unistrut nuts from measurements I have taken. I was hoping to just buy some 1 1/4" nuts but they are a size unistrut dealers around here don't carry.

So that is how I ended up going with thw 1 5/8" channel.
I just finished it today and will take a few pics tomorrow.

Shot a few quick pics this morning.
Used a gusseted 90 in the bed corners. The hole makes a nice mount location for tiedowns or?
You can see the difference in the strutvs the factory rails in the last 2 photos.

Many ideas still floating around in the mushy little brain.

^^Sweet. So it looks like the unistrut is too wide to fit in the lower troughs of the bed moldings, huh?

Yes I do not think it will fit into the lower sections of the bed floor.
Unistrut does make a 5/8" or 11/16" wide strut I think.
But then you would need to use the correct nuts to fit.
