    It should be noted Ive searched the Tacoma World Forums.

    I was wanting to see what kind of bed racks people are rocking.

    That being said, if you could also leave some info.

    Brand -
    Did you buy new or used -
    How long have you had it -
    Cons and Pros -


    I’m trying to get people with all brands consildated into one thread. Some of the forums are called overland racks, rooftop tent racks etc.

    My plan is to update this post throughout the year and make it easy for people to come here and read the reviews later.

    C4Fab rack here. Had it about 1.5 years since new.

    Pros: Easy to assemble solo, stout, compact when disassembled (for storage, etc), adjustable top bars to fit lots of stuff
    Cons: Wish it was 1 inch taller to avoid conflict with my MTB seats (3rd gens are fine), no good way to mount stuff to the side like maxtrax, etc.

    CBI bed rack and sliders, CVT Mt. Bachelor, Uniden 520XL, WeatherTechs, TRD CAI, 1Up USA hitch rack, speaker upgrade, Total Chaos bed stiffeners
    I run an aluminum CBI:

    [​IMG]20180420_172506 by MrTenBeers, on Flickr

    Pros:
    - I like the shorter height, but not so short that the bed is difficult to get things out of. Keeps CoG lower and does not affect MPG much, if at all.
    - Good attachments for the RTT and other stuff. RTT bolts right on, no clamps. I carry a shovel and axe on one side, HiLift on the other. Could do Rotopax in place of the other items if I moved stuff to the inside of the rack.
    - Not too heavy, especially if you go aluminum
    - Looks better (to me) than other modular options like KBVoodoo. And it's not KBVoodoo.

    Cons:
    - The side panels do get in the way when getting stuff out of the bed.
    - While I had a good experience with CBI for the rack and sliders, some say they are waiting on stuff a long time now.
    - Limits what you can carry in the bed.

    I built my 2nd gen rack myself because nobody offered this height. And I was being cheap. I was happy to see folks coming out with other options.

    This was a rack I was highly considering. Thanks for the quick and speedy feedback.

    BAMF Full size bed rack. As with all BAMF, thing is pure beef. Lots of options for side plates, sizes, tent and awning mounts.
    Fully welded and height right at the cab, as well as full long bed length were important for us.
    Bolts to the rails, so with two or a hoist fairly easy to remove for a fully welded solution.....
