    Does anyone know of a good local shop that could fab one up?

    Cheers!

    Better late to the game then never - LOL! "Cruisermansd" says call Steve Who the hell is Steve & what is Front Runner??? Sorry took me 3 days of online searching to figure this whole thing out. I live in Colo. Springs, CO. Luckily I am persistant enough & wanted a Bed Rack for my 2001 Tacoma bad enough to figure it all out. I discovered there is a Steve at www.frontrunneroutfitters.com (I talked to Steve today 3/23/15). Steve was very nice & within 20 minutes sent me some photos (at my request) of the Bed Rack that would fit my 2001 Tacoma. I have to say, After receiving those Pics, I called Steve back with more questions, he answered them all to my satisfaction & I ordered his Aluminum Powder Coated (black) Bed Rack today (Part # KRLB002T) that weighs around 50 lbs for my 2001 Tacoma :) Steve said the load capacity on the Bed Rack is about 660 lbs which is amazing! I plan on putting a 2 person Roof Tent on it which by the way I found out Front Runners has a 2 person Roof Tent that weighs 88 lbs. I told Steve that his 88 lbs Roof Tent (which I would put on top of my Bed Rack) would be a contender in my Roof Tent search for sure. NOTE: Photos are the Truck Bed Rack I purchased but not my Truck - When I get my Front Runner Truck Bed Rack on my Tacoma, I will post those Pics :)

    Ok, I said I would post a few pics of my new "Front Runner" Bed Rack, so here they are...

    Just got the "Front Runner Slimline II" Bed Rack put on that I ordered from www.frontrunneroutfitters.com It is Powder-Coated Aluminum and weighs in at around 50 to 60 pounds total. I did a lot of looking around on the Internet before I purchased this Bed Rack. I went with this one for a few reasons. I wanted off the bed, but below the roof, as I want to put a Roof-Tent on the bed rack that will allow me to leave it on my truck & still be able to park my truck in my garage (I may be tired or just lazy after a camping trip & not want to take the tent off right away & still want my truck & tent to be secure in my garage until I get around to taking the tent off my truck. Or I might want to put the tent on my truck a day or two prior to the camping trip & still have everything secure in my garage ready to go. Also, I don't have the skills or equipment to make myself a bed rack & do not know anyone that could have made me one. I figured even if I located someone in a fab shop that could have made me one, the dollar figure would have been up there anyway. "Front Runner" has about 80 different accessories for this one & I liked the platform style of it as I can envision multiple functions it can serve. Most of all, I wanted a lightweight Bed-Rack that was robust & could handle all my wants & needs. The guys over at "Front Runner" said this thing can handle about 660 pounds of weight. I am looking at around a 90 to 100 pound Roof-Tent, so Bed Rack & tent coming in around 150 to 160 pounds is not bad I would say! Everything adds up, so I wanted the two biggest things to be as light as possible! Just wanted to share.
