    Very true! Not being able to see anything coming, and being along for the ride is crazy. There's a lot of yelling going on to make sure your both doing the same thing. Everyone should try it!

    wow. that is a beast . I love it. love that black front much better on that blue. Dang I really don't need a full size and had a 15 Tundra but man seeing yours make me want too. I got a 16 Colorado diesel and planning on trading for an 18 Tacoma trd off road. i put 35 k miles on commute but man the tundra is so much more comfortable just harder to deal with in the city but seeing yours makes me want to get one. What mpg with that lift you get

    All the fires moved to Utah. Spanish Fork Canyon and Ogden have been "en fuego" for a few weeks now. Clogging up all the valleys with smoke.

    What's the black I see on the downtube of your Yeti? Is that an extra large rock guard?

    DO NOT BUY KUAT. THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS A BUNCH OF SARCASTIC ASSHOLES AND IT REMEDYS YOUR TAILGATE USELESS IF YOU NEED ANYTHING OUT OF IT. There. I am done yelling.

    Not to poke the bear... but feel like I've got to hear this story. Seriously considering one of their racks to replace my borrowed Thule T2 predecessor.

    Sorry about long response.

    There's two parts to the story. But the issue with the Kuat Racks is that some of them do not allow the tailgate to come all the way down on 2016 and newer Tacomas. They seem to work on my 2011, but I've got some modifications that seem to allow the extra spacing. Essentially part of the swingarm does not allow the tailgate to come down without contact (which could be a big problem to your paint). This article describes it somewhat, but what it doesn't show is that even with the bike off the rack, there is still contact with the rack https://www.etrailer.com/tv-review-kuat-nv-hitch-bike-racks-2016-toyota-tacoma-n105-107.aspx. If you can live with that contact, or don't mind not being able to fully use your tailgate with the rack installed, you'll be fine. If you find the need to drop your tailgate often while the rack is installed, then you may have some issues. The only real solution that I can think about, is to remove the rack partially (time consuming I know) before you drop the tailgate. So, it's something to think about before you buy one of their racks (which are actually fantastic, if not a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for).

    Now, I know I am a first time poster here. (I didn't even know you guys existed until erminman started something on another site, but I'm thrilled to know about this site and am a happy owner of 2011 Tacoma that haunts the far reaches of Nevada).

    But, there is a huge part of the story that erminman is not telling you about in his effort to smear Kuat. And he's not being truthful about the customer service at all. Essentially he started a thread on a private Facebook group where he thought a Kuat employee posted. Many of the posters thought his post was pissy (for lack of a better word). They turned on him pretty roughly. They have nothing to do with Kuat. Zero, nada, zilch. erminman did post on Kuat's Facebook page and they gave a timely and honest answer about the racks touching the tailgates. It's a known issue. So his comment about Kuat being a bunch of sarcastic assholes is unfortunately an outright lie. But, he is right about issues with the racks, and that will be something you'll have to consider.

    And no, I don't work for Kuat. Just happen to enjoy their products. I'm more into playing desert rat.

    Sorry about the manifesto, but hope this helps.
