    Quick question guys. I have a 2012 tacoma and i wanted to get a bike rack that goes on the deck rail system. This is the one that goes on the deck rail inside the bed and you mount your bicycle by taking the front wheel off. I called and quoted the part and the guys said it would be a special order and it was $120. :eek: He said since it was a 2012 he would have to SPECIAL order it. I call BS! is their ANY differance in the 2012 deck rail system or is it the same as the 2011? that's my question because i found the same bike wheel lock on ebay (OEM part) for $86 free shipping. If you guys could help me out i would really apreciate it. I doubt their is a differance in the deck rail but i just want to make sure before i pull the trigger and order the part and not have it fit. Thanks again! :)

    Take a picture and we can see. I'm sure it hasn't changed.

    There are a ton of threads on here where guys have made their own from much much cheaper then what one OEM cost.

    here is mine. its a 1x3 painted black with a Thule bike cleat (25 bucks on ebay) mounted to it. I also have a large storage container that connects to the 1x3 with wing nuts. I have the storage box mounted all the time and remove it when i have the bike in the bed. Takes about 3 minutes to roll back the cover, take out the box, and hook up the bike.
