    Any good ways to secure bicycles to the rail besides the $138.75 toyota part? I have a 09 Tacoma. I am sure someone has a great way of doing it.

    Just get a fork mount carrier, around $20.00 bucks and two Carriage bolts that slide into the rails. Mounts anywhere on the rail and won't use up a rail cleat.
