    None yet, but many in the works
    Just out of curiosity, what kind of racks are those, and where did you get them? I also have a 2012 Tacoma, single cab, and am looking for a setup like this for kayaks.

    Wow. Wouldn't have guessed that. Looks great. Did you use the existing bolt holes for the tie down tracks to secure it in place?
