    Yes, I removed the rails and re drilled the upper brackets (see pic) so they could be bolted to the bed rails. Also, I drilled holes in the rear bike rack square tubing (see pic)to allow a single bolt in each which holds them down on the rear bed rack bar. The top hole was drilled out larger to allow a socket in to secure the nut and hold the bike rack rail in place. I then inserted a low profile plug to cover the hole, as seen in the pic. Hope this helps.

    It's a Kuat NV. It's the best hitch rack I've owned. It is really well engineered. Only downside is you can't open the tailgate all the way without hitting the wheel holder. I've looked before and thing you could trim the wheel holder and it would work but I haven't tested that theory.

    Regardless I recommend it

    I'm jealous of anyone that lives in Colorado and rides bikes. It has to be incredible.

    You can have one too, but but first you must suffer and then suffer some more....
    Not being properly acclimated to the altitude was brutal/crazy:der: Also, being from the Dallas Fort Worth area there are not any climbs to practice on. We just trained riding 100 plus milers on the road. It was all worth it but that bucket list is checked!

    I have ridden CO a bunch. I have done a few passes (kenosha and Georgia). But yeah, that is a brutal ride. Well done.

    I did basically the same thing but with a Thule rack and the KB VOODOO rack
    kbvoodoo rack http://www.kbvoodoo.com/shop/toyota...-use-with-tonneau-covers-fits-years-2005-2016
    Then a generic basket with a couple of thule racks mounted on the sides.. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B019RNQHLQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I used 1/4-20 stainless hardware with 3 bolts up front drilled and mounted into the front rack parts.. totally solid and works great :)

    You don't happen to have a close up of the fork mount on the bed rail by chance?

    I can't get my forks close to the fork mount when mounted on rail because of interference with the tonneau cover assembly and I'm curious how you overcame that.

    And bikes, because staying on topic!

    Cool bikes! Here's a close up pic. They are rockymounts drive shaft HM's. They are great! come with a few adapters even a qr axle for standard forks, and they lock. They came with all the hardware to mount them too. You just need the header rail since our 3rd gens didn't come with one..
    If that mount won't work for you check out rockymounts.com they have alot of options.

    Thanks!

    Appreciate the picture I'll definitely check out the Rockymounts, I have a Swagman in there now and it looks like the RMs are a lot further back off the rail. The lock is a plus, too. Could be just the ticket!

    Cheers

    Bike fits perfectly across the bed with the stock tonneau in place.
