So when I traded in my camry for my tacoma I kept the roof rack that i used to haul my mountain bikes around on. Out of boredom last week I frankensteined some pieces togther and came up with a good way to make a bike rack out of the random pieces I had that attatched directly to the front rail of the 2nd gen tacomas.
essentially it comes down to U-bolts and washers in the bed rail, a bar from the bike rack, a fork mount from the bike rack, and a couple of mounting points from the u-bolts to the bar. It works well, and fits under my tonneau cover so I never need to remove it.
If anyone in the minneapolis/northwestern wisconsin area is interested I can throw some picks up of the one I have on my truck and show you how to install the extra one I have on yours. I live in a tiny apartment and need to get rid of this thing. Not looking to ship this anywhere, local only.
I'm not looking to make any money, but I wouldn't turn down a 6-pack in exchange.
