    Yes. There's torx screws there holding the top bed edge cover. You just use the same screws and holes.

    I took mine off my 15 before trade in so I could stick it on the new truck.

    Fork mount bike racks installed in 15 minutes. I'm an accountant, not a mechanic and measure my jobs by the number of swear words. This was a G rated job. This forum was a great resource for this project that left me more educated than the dealer.

    Order rail header rail specified for 2015 Tacoma, got mine next day from dealer at same price as Amazon. PT278-35100-BH. Fits my 2017 Tacoma perfectly. This part does not include the little plastic end caps.

    Got locking Rocky Mounts LoBall Track mounts which included rail hardware (square nuts and bolts). I have been using Yakima racks for years and was impressed with how well this fork mount was made.

    Remove 5 bolts along header using a T30 torx bit on my ratchet. Hold new rail up that is pre drilled and aligns perfectly. Reinstall 5 bolts.

    Slide Rocky Mounts into slotted rail and secure. Install locking quick release. Mount bikes and head off for a great ride.
