    Anyone familiar with any Tacoma bed rail mounts for fat tire bikes with 9x135 size axles?

    I just bought a Super73 S2 and I'm looking to mount it by the fork to the bulkhead rail.

    I was hoping Rockymounts had one but it doesn't appear they do unless I missed it.

    Thanks for any help!

    If you are a long bed (I think all SR5s are DCSB?), I made my own that are a copy of the Inno mounts (the bare AL fitting next to the bike mount was for my tonneau):

    Just a T nut, some nylocks, allthread, and a QuickFist.

    If you are a DSSB, I did find a cheap, fatty fork mount somewhere (maybe $20?):

    Found it. It didn't come up in the obvious Order History searches:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X05D8R4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Opening the holes up just a bit, it worked well with the HondoGarage T nuts in the front accessory rail that I added:
    https://shop-hondogarage.com/collec...ms/products/toyota-utility-track-t-nut-4-pack

    Note that even though these say 5/16 thread, the ones that I got were metric (M8 x 1.0?). They might have changed since originally launching them?

    Not pulling the wheel was my reason for going with the mount in the post above.

    Just gonna post this here for help for anyone else that may stumble upon the thread - I got an email back from Collin at Rockymounts.

    I *think* he's insinuating I can use the Rockymounts LoBall mount for the Tacoma in tandem with the Hurricane Components Fatboy:
    1. https://www.etrailer.com/p-RKY1097.html?hhyear=2019&hhmake=Toyota&hhmodel=Tacoma
    2. This mounts to the Loball I *think* - I'm waiting on info about if it fits together.
    http://www.hurricanecomponents.com/fatboy/

    2 differ skewers stacked but if it works, I'm game.

    I think it'll look something like this if they fit together.

    That's a nice set up that might work for me. I'll give that a look, price is right at $130 too.

    BONUS: The RockyMounts LoBall for our rail system fits my Haro Master fork perfectly! I was worried I was going to need a different mount for this and the fat tire bike.
