    If you install a front rail you can use the same products that 2nd gens do.

    And you can use a 2nd gen front rail.

    Guess it depends on what you are driving on. If you are concerned, seems a simple bungee around the wheel to the rear D ring would suffice. 3rd gens do have floor mounted D rings, right? (I don't know)

    I don't even bother with the fork mounts. I just strap the bike down in the front. 95% pavement though, along with mild unimproved road use. No problems at interstate speeds or the unpaved road.

    If I had to 4wheel to get to a trail head, I'd first need 4wd, then I'd use a more secure system like you are considering. :D

    I haven't had any issues, on long road trips I'll loop a small bungee off the D-ring around the back tire for peace of mind.

    Rail with rocky mounts. Bouncing has never been an issue. Cargo gate keeps wheels and gear secure. 20170604_154618.jpg 20170604_155318.jpg 20170604_155328.jpg

    Looking for Good Ideas!


    If you have a 3rd Gen, you'll need to order a extra bedrail and install it.

    Then, I'd highly recommend the RockyMounts Driveshaft HM, ($60 RockyMounts Driveshaft HM Bolt-On thru-axle bike rackhttps://www.amazon.com/RockyMounts-...5948&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=rockymounts+clutch), or the Driveshaft Track, (although the track gets a bit tricky with the bulkhead bar for spacing; $71 RockyMounts DriveShaft Track thru-axle bike rackhttps://www.amazon.com/RockyMounts-...s&keywords=rockymounts+driveshaft+track&psc=1 ).
    Then I use Yakima Universal Locking Skewers for my 9mm Axel Bikes, ($29 Yakima Universal Qrlocking Skewerhttps://www.amazon.com/Yakima-8002118-Universal-Qrlocking-Skewer/dp/B06X96RCJB/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1520026257&sr=1-1&keywords=Yakima+locking+skewers%29%3B and I use a Locking 15mm Axel for the 15mm ThruAxel bikes, (FOX fork ThruAxel: $50 Fox 15mm locking thru-axle/Lockable thru axlehttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Fox-15mm-l...49336?hash=item4afda85cb8:g:E4EAAOSwOVpXV2lN; RockShox: $45 Rock Shox locking 15mm thru-axlehttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Rock-Shox-...177427?hash=item33c7f6e093:g:E4EAAOSwOVpXV2lN) ... you can just use the standard ThruAxel that comes with the bike if you have one and the RockyMounts Driveshaft mounts will take a 15mm or a 20mm ThruAxel with the supplied adapters).IMG_0334.jpg

    It's hard to see, but the rear wheels of these bikes are lifted and secured to the AMP Research BedXTender to give me space for cargo in the bed.
    IMG_0367.jpgIf you have a 2nd Gen Taco, the front bedrail should be present and this is what it looks like without using the AMP Bed Extender to Lift the bikes out of the bed.IMG_2165.jpg
