    I think you can find those on any Toyota Parts website. You can also try Yakima or Thule...

    I will see what I come across. I am looking for the same thing.

    Do you have something like the Yakima BedHead or BlockHead? If so, its quite easy to mount to the rails. There were pics here or ToyotaNation.com, I cant remember where I found them now. I think the latter.

    Any way, its simple - just get two round head bolts or carriage bolts that are large enough to slide into the track assembly. Drill matching holes (or use the holes that should be on the clamp) and just bolt them on. Thats all there is too it really. From the rail it would be - carriage bolt slid into the rail, then the mount, a washer, nut. Wing nuts can be used as well for easier dismount.

    That is a Rocky Mount Clutch rack made just for the rail system. Its not the best pic, but should give you the idea.

    I just used vinal coated cables with a pad lock looped through the tie down cleats. Weave the cable between the frame, rear wheel, and the loose front wheel. And hope your saddle is not overly attractive to anyone who knows how to work a quick release. Otherwise throw the seat / seat post in the truck.
