    Does anyone have hitch or frame mounted cooler & surf rod racks on their Tacomas? Did you make it yourself or buy a pre-made rack? How do you go about installing one in the front of the truck?

    I'm hopefully getting my cooler rack monday. Have yet to decide to pick up a curt reciever for the front or spend the coin and pick up a CBI.

    I bought the Curt and it was really easy to mount it by myself on my 2013 Tacoma. I like it because I don't have to worry about messing up my grill. I bought it from Auto Anything with free shipping. They took off a few dollars off from there sale price. When buying from them always ask if the can do any better on the price and they can.

    I refuse to buy big stuff from them again. I purchased $210 roof racks from them. On the truck for 45 mins and taken off. Did not like them. Auto anything said 15% restock fee. I lost $32 on brand new racks..scumbags

    I only buy things from online stores after I have seen the product in person locally and know this is what I want. My rack system is a Thule and you can't mess that up. You have to do your research before buying. Most online dealers have a restocking fee or you have to pay return shipping unless they sent you the wrong item. So far Auto Anything hasn't let me down.
