    I have an 02 xtra cab that I want to put a roof rack on for my bikes. I know the cab is pretty short and the bikes would have to hang a bit over the front of the windshield, but I have seen it done on other cars with similar situations. Does anyone have any pictures of their 1st gen xtra cab with a roof rack? Also does anyone know which yakima foot mounts I would need? I'm just throwing yakima out there because I have a rail system already. I could however go with a different brand if someone has a recommendation. Thanks for the help

    Yakima and Thule do not make a roof top mount for the 1st gen ex cab, only double cab.

    You can do a custom mount using a Thule Tracker foot pack and either Top Tracks or a TK base kit.

    If you want more info on doing a custom set-up shoot me an email. I have a 99 taco and have spoken with my Thule Rep (I am a dealer) about doing this a few times. It will require drilling into the roof.....

    Just get Yakima landing pads, control towers, crossbars, and then whatever rack you wanted! There are lots of different landing pads available so be sure to look them over on Yakima's website. I think landing pad #6 or #7 may work on the roof of a Tacoma!
