    I think this is only kind of true. You need to try and figure out what part number you're purchasing and check with frontrunner.

    Up until like 6 months ago the 2005-15 rack was a different model number and required much larger spacers for the foot rails to clear the shark fin antenna (large enough to cause aesthetic issues). What I think happened is that front runner made taller foot rails to accommodate this (avoiding the need for ridiculously sized spacers). These were sold as 3rd gen specific until the 2nd gen stock sold out. Now all new 2nd and 3rd gen racks get the same, taller foot rails.

    The nice thing about front runner is that everything is modular. You may be able to buy the pieces/parts direct from them to make everything fit just right.

    They solved that problem with different spacer size. In short, I spoke with a represents of front runner because I was missing the spacers.
    They sent me the new set which turned out to be labeled for new body style Tacoma. He said the only difference is the height of the spacers to clear the antenna on the roof.

    I highly doubt front runner would change their production process to the foot rails to obtain appropriate clearance for the antenna, when an alternative solution is to make the spacer a few MM taller.

    Yes they are very interchangeable.

    The spacers were a bandaid fix for 3rd gen folks and were eventually replaced. You may have called them during that time frame. The taller spacers were obviously higher than the roof molding and looked awful.

    Frontrunner absolutely changed their footrail design. 2005-2015 used to be FATT001. 2016+ were added as FATT002. When the stock of FATT001 was depleted, frontrunner called for (and still does) the same, taller 002 style footrails for both gens.

    FATT001 (page 2): http://www.frontrunneroutfitters.com/media/pdf/FATT001/F_KRTT001T.pdf

    tl;dr: There is no difference between the two racks today. Previously they had 2 different footrails. If an old 2nd gen rack is to be fit on a 3rd gen using spacers it'll look like shit, the new footrails are necessary to do it "right."

    Truck looks great. I just purchased a shell and will be ordering two racks.

    Which rack option did you go with for the canopy? Im trying to figure out the sizing.
    thanks!
