    So I have been looking for bike mounts for my 2nd Gen. I dont wanna spend $50 a pop buying the toyota ones. I have searched and all the DIY bike mounts I have stumbled across havent really appealed to me. Does anyone have their own DIY bike mounts that are strong and can be removed from the bed rails when not in use?

    I did find this link which I might act on. But I dont understand where it mounts to..

    That looks like the same thing I posted except almost $20 more.

    06Bluez - both yours and the one Lentsnh linked to need to be mounted to a surface. The pictures on both sites show a 2x4 or something similiar. They wont mount directly to the bed rails. Of course where there is a will there is a way, and i am sure many members here could make it work.

    I found a thread a few weeks ago where a guy attached that type of mount to his rails. Not sure if they can be removed easily though. I've already got 3 of those mounts, so I hope they work.

    I was thinking mounting it onto some washers or some kind of a block and sliding it onto the bed rails.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    make a block to fit in the bedrails that you can mount it to. I did the same thing with my cb antenna mount.

    some people get some pan head bolts that fit behind the rail system and then bolt the bike mount to it.

    If you wanted a temporary mount, you get a 2x4 or 2x6 and place it in the recesses in the side of the bed. Then you bolt your bike mount to that.

    I use a rack that attaches to the trailer hitch. I like it because it keeps the bed free, and folds down if you need to get into the bed.
